    I am in the prime demographic for getting randomly assaulted (early 30s male) so I do not go downtown after sunset. I do not get assaulted. Going down there after dark is taking your life in your hands. There is no deterrent. Our liberal justice system is a joke and no one is allowed to carry weapons. There's nothing stopping anyone from following their basest instincts, so we see this article twice a week. No thanks. I go clubbing in Florida, where I'm safe

    A driver with $40,000 in unpaid fines, no licence, no registration, no nothing ? This is 2013 and MRD and Traffic Court are still as useless as t - - s on a bull when it comes to getting a handle on this problem. As a responsible driver with a licence, insurance, registration and no unpaid fines, is it asking too much for officials to get off their lazy ar$es and do something?

    Barbaric and disgusting. If this behaviour was caused by drugs or alcohol, time to clean up your act!!! Animalistic to the extreme.
