No more "Junkie See, Junkie Do"

-- OTTAWA -- The Harper government will appeal a decision by the B.C. Supreme Court that saved North America's only sanctioned safe-injection site from closure at the end of June, Health Minister Tony Clement has confirmed.
Now, I'm sure that this decision to appeal is gonna set off all sorts of moaning and crying in the leftosphere about all those poor addicts... but what about the people who are really being impacted here...
The minister said Vancouver has the second highest rate of violent and property crimes of any major city in the United States or Canada. “Law-abiding Vancouverites are beginning to see that what has been presented as a ‘victimless crime' I the drug trade - is not victimless at all,” said Mr. Clement.
Put that in your syringe... and inject it.


"Welcome to B.C. -- Doing drugs = Good. Free Speech = Bad.

-- TORONTO -- A judge who will decide if a jailhouse video interview with Paul Bernardo can be released to the public says he's worried about the killer's rights.

“Is it fair to have loops playing on TV saying, ‘Look at this psychopath trying to wiggle his way out of this'?"
Well, your honour... it's fairer than what he did to Kristen French and Leslie Mahaffy.

Say Judge, while we're talkin' psychos... here's one for you...
-- HAMILTON -- A Hamilton man has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of his 6-week-old son. Police say 26-year-old Terry Legacy was arrested this morning without incident. Police say they got a 911 call on May 11 from the parents of Cohen Legacy, saying the infant was in medical distress.

The boy was taken to hospital, where he later died. An autopsy later ruled the boy's death was a homicide.
So, your honour... here's my question.

Was the previous assault on the other child... just deductible?
Legacy is also charged with aggravated assault stemming from serious injuries suffered last year by another child.
I don't get it.
