Carrying Dope Into a Prison is a RIGHT

Let's see if we understand this correctly.

A Matsqui prison guard spots a baby stroller testing positive for cocaine. The stroller belongs to a baby and its wonderful, caring mother, who are smuggling dope into the joint for their wonderful caring father and husband.

The guard alerts the Children's Ministry - who we all know are the paragon of responsibility - of the situation.

Is he given a medal, a badge of honor or courage, a civic citation for protecting children and the public?


He is was threatened with discipline by the prison authorities for BREACHING THE PRISONER'S PRIVACY!!!

So this is what civil liberties have brought us?

Jails now have more drugs per square inch than any street corner at Main and Hastings because we must respect the privacies of prison inmates, including, apparently, their god-given right to possess, use and sell illegal narcotics.

In a similar case, at the same perfectly run Nut House, another woman arrived twice with a baby and the two sweet things tested positive for coke, meth, smack and THC.

Last year, in Quebec a loving, caring mom and her 6 week old baby were found visiting a prison carrying 32 ounces of heroin...on the baby, of course.

I suppose if the baby could talk, he/she could say, "Hey, I didn't know that shit was in here!"

This, by the way, is an excellent picture of dope fiends.

The same, caring scum that the Mayor wants to give drugs to and everyone else wants to "help" with free needles and clean places to shoot.

Our society has flipped.

We are a turtle lying on its back.

"We are a turtle lying on it's back". David, if there is a more appropriate analogy, I cannot think of what it would be. So,.............. what are WE going to do about it? The smart money says, based upon our history, nothing.

We definitely are a turtle lying on it's back. Today we received through the post (not sure why), a letter and brochure requesting a donation to Madresa Ashraful Uloom located outside Toronto. This is a school that, as noted in the brochure, is accredited by the Ministry of Education.

In part the brochure reads:

. . . Meant to be an educational community, it returns hope to us in the West as it provides an opportunity for Islamic teachings in a Canadian context. Great scholars are at the helm of this uniting Islamic project with the objective to "save the entire Muslim Community from the Fire." Participate in this practical vision today and earn yourself a page in the history of Islam yet to be written, with perpetual elevation in the life to come.

"We offer traditional courses of instruction in Classical Arabic and the Shariah sciences aimed at English speakers learning Arabic. Using classical texts in their original Arabic, this multi year course is aimed at anyone desiring an indepth study of Islamic Jurisprudence."

. . . earn yourself a page in the history of Islam?

. . . Islamic jusisprudence?

This may be innocent, but one could also read between the lines.

Have we, as a society, forgotten the true purpose of the prison system? When you commit a crime you are technically out of society for the term of your sentence. Right? So why is there a segment of our society and political groups so bent on giving these criminals advantages that the rest of society can only dream about? We truly have the inmates in control of the asylums. ( In this case our prisons.) What politicians wont do for a vote, eh what? The vote for your local crime boss, thug and whatever. Sheesh! What a country.
