The Cracked Crystal Ball II: An Act Of Aggression Is Still Wrong

I’m angry beyond words at this:  Transgender Woman’s Jail Treatment Prompts Complaints Baxter said Griffith was concerned about her safety and asked to be put into protective custody. 

Guards moved her to the protective custody section and placed her in a cell with two accused male sex offenders, Baxter said.

The Cracked Crystal Ball II: An Emerging Police State

For the last several years, I have been increasingly concerned that our governments at both the Federal and Provincial levels have been enabling an environment that is fundamentally hostile to civil society and individual freedoms. In the wake of 9/11, we found the Canadian Federal Government using an obscure, and previously little used “Security Certificate” . . . → Read More: The Cracked Crystal Ball II: An Emerging Police State

The Cracked Crystal Ball II: Harper … Linking Him To Ford

In the last two weeks, we’ve heard a lot about – and from – Rob Ford.  He’s been, to say the least, prominent in the headlines – shocking most of the time, belligerent the rest.

The Cracked Crystal Ball II: Watch As Our Prison Costs Go Up

Travis Baumgartner was sentenced today.  He was sentenced to the equivalent of “40 years to life” for a bloody robbery that left three dead.

CANADIAN PROGRESSIVE WORLD: The real “gateway drug” is alcohol, not marijuana

With the recent passage of crime Bill C-10 into law, we can expect a lot of young and first-time Canadian marijuana users in our high school system to do real time in jail. That’s because of the Conservative government’s’ tough-on-crime agenda and legendary disdain for evidence. And, especially, the long-standing societal myth that marijuana is . . . → Read More: CANADIAN PROGRESSIVE WORLD: The real “gateway drug” is alcohol, not marijuana

War on drugs. NDP vs. Liberals.

I’ve been increasingly hard on the Liberals since the first days post-Chretien. So much so, I’ve gravitated towards the NDP. A prime indicator for me of my feelings towards the parties has been that which distinguishes their attitudes towards the war on drugs, particularly in regards to victimless pot.

For me, this . . . . . → Read More: War on drugs. NDP vs. Liberals.

Cheney chickens out of visit to Toronto

Must be all those mandatory minimum sentences that spooked the skittish Mr. Cheney. Do the crime, do the time must be scary words to a man wanted in much of the world for crimes against humanity.

American law enforcement officials: “U.S. is becoming ‘more progressive’ than Canada”

"Hey, this is some good reefer. I just saw the future. It's just like the 30's in Canada only worse!"
