Victor at the Hospital


Hi David:

As we've all heard by now, a cretin walked into a room on the 8th floor of Vancouver General, whispered into the ear of the occupant, a 91 year old lady who had just had her leg amputated, that her rings needed cleaning. She gave him the rings and he vanished.

The official response from the VPD spokesdork was puzzling. The VPD criticized VGH for its lax security.

Wrong answer spokesdork.

Here is what the Chief should have said.

"This crime is an example of the human waste that walks our streets stealing to support a habit they are too gutless to fight. They are not victims, in spite of what the Enablement industry would have you believe. Our compassion and resources should go to helping the defenseless and those who truly want to change their lives. But lower life forms like this should be made to pay in the harshest way permissible under our laws."

Of course, the Chief couldn't say that because he reports to Mayor Nutbar.

Yeah, and after picking up his "fix" for the day, be made a bee line to the Insite Injection Site with the proceeds of this 91 year old woman's property. I guess the city doesn't have a problem with this as long as the addict doesn't get a dirty needle......Heaven forbid.

Where's the "harm reduction" for this poor woman?
