Understatement of the Year:
The video of Robert Dziekanksi's death "shows the RCMP in a bad light."
How about Bullies & Thugs?
The officers who perpetrated this monstrosity at YVR did so for the same reason a dog licks itself -because it can.
The once honorable force is in deep trouble, top to bottom. It needs a serious overhaul as soon as possible.

Two local pharmacies - let's call them Drug Stores - have been found guilty of overcharging Pharmacare hundreds of thousands of dollars on methadone prescriptions.
Leave out of the discussion for the moment how useless and destructive methadone is and think only about these pigs stealing from the taxpayers' pool of money that should be buying legitimate medicines for the elderly.
So the courts in their endless wisdom have decided that the decision to cut these crooks off at the knees was made too hastily. The poor babies - proven crooks - deserve another chance to over bill us all.
Is there anybody who is not rightly furious with and frustrated by the courts today?
Is there anybody in the courts with an ounce of wisdom?

President Bush vetoed a $606 billion spending bill Tuesday that would have funded education, health and labor programs for the current fiscal year, complaining that it was larded with pork and too expensive as he took aim at a top priority of the new Democratic Congress.
At the same time, the president signed a $471 billion Defense Department spending bill that funds regular Pentagon operations other than the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
