Victoria *really* doesn't like being in the policing business, does it?

I feel for the VicPD members who have to put up with all this nonsense.


I think there has been a subtle narrative over the past 5 years that crime is okay, that the law should not be applied equally and that the only laws that matter are ones our local government reps make up in their head.

In fact, the only law most of our local government adheres to is a simple one: must get elected, whatever the cost.

If drug dealers thrive, if kids are playing with used needles, if a few women get sexually harassed, if someone the mayor may or may not know is operating am unauthorized airbnb, if sexual assaults happen in a tent city.... none of that matters, as long as we get elected. As long as it doesn't happen to us, crime is not a problem.

very true.. because when a crime happens to helps it makes top story on the news... and it is a targeted attack against her, not a random act.. remember the locks on her spokes?
