The Codetalkers

Oh, those dastardly "north-enders"...

-- TORONTO -- A double shooting near a school in the city’s north end sent two teenagers to hospital this morning.

The shooting happened around 10 a.m. near Oakdale Park Middle School, in the Jane St. and Grandravine Dr. area.
Don't you worry, though... the police are following up some really solid leads...
Police say they are looking for a young, tall male suspect.

UPDATE: Uh, Sherry... you really wanna help...

...maybe you should be handing out kevlar...
Sherry Schwartz-Maltz, spokesperson for the TDSB, said they were making social workers available to the 560 Oakdale students.

RELATED: Violence... what youth violence?
Three teenagers have been charged in connection with the shooting death of another Toronto teenager, who was found dead in a stairway last month.

Bradley Matheson, 19, was found with gunshot wounds to his upper body at the East York apartment building where he was pronounced dead on Oct. 14.

On Thursday, police announced that three Toronto boys, two 16 and one 15, had been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the case. They can’t be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

LAST WORD: Maybe the cupboard IS bare...

...after eco-Dalton handed a billion dollars to the windmill people.

What exactly are we talking about here?
The legislation would impose mandatory minimum sentences for some drug crimes and toughen punishments for violent young offenders, among other changes.
And some folks have a problem with that?


So what is the split here?
Manitoba, Alberta and British Columbia have all said they are in favour of the bill, while Ontario and Quebec have joined forces to fight it.
Wow... the Ontario Liberals are against tougher sentencing for violent offenders. No wonder schoolyard shootings are constantly in the news.
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty said Wednesday. “If there are accompanying costs, we’re not prepared to accept those in Ontario.”
Apparently justice does have a price... for Dalton & the Liberals.

If only he was as circumspect about those other pesky little budget items...

And so we see why the Fascists decided to bundle NINE different bills into an omnibus crime bill. So that any criticism is met with "you support pedophiles" malarkey.

Fact is, jailing people for having 5 pot plants will only benefit Corrections Corporation of America, the likely builder of the new pothead prisons.

If we just stopped jailing these kinds of things, there would be plenty of room for the longer sentenced violent offenders.

Exactly why do the Fascists think you should be jailed longer for telling someone to take the flag used as a curtain out of their window than they would be jailed for diddling some kid?

As for eliminating 2 for 1 credit for pre-trial custody, what will they offer to people who are jailed indefinitely and eventually exonerated? If it is "nothing", then what stops the frivolous prosecutions that eventually fail and are allowed to drag on?
