RCMP encounters
Comment by Maggie Jo on 6th October 2011
When I have experienced encounters with the RCMP, they are respectfully courteous and efficient. After all...I did deserve that ticket. Why fight it?

I think the "sin of pride" causes us to clash with authority figures. Too bad. Sure, there's always a few rotten apples in da bunch, but the vast majority of RCMP members are simply doing their job as they are called to perform in upholding the Law; while maintaining their respectful mandate in "Community Officer" style in keeping us all safe in preventative measures. They perform their job descriptions like the rest of us working peeps have to do in our own employment situations...and when we exhibit unjustified indignation towards them when we are "busted"... it only adds to the "unjustified anx".

Why...one of my galpals told me her husband was busted for not wearing a seatbelt. She admitted he was indeed not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the pullover, but she proudly announced he tried to "get outta it" anyway while he profusely verbally drilled the RCMP Officer to no end; adding he would challenge it in court - hoping the RCMP Officer wouldn't show up on his day off on that Court date.

Uh....is this who we have become?

This week a visiting Colleague shared with me today about his experiences with the RCMP vs Vancouver City Police. He went on at great length about the VCP truly lacking in respective form; while the RCMP have treated him extremely respectfully all these years. Nice to hear!

I'm proud to have Canadian Mounties in our Community...even though that darn ticket cost me a fortune where I had to thin out the milk to pay for it!
huh??

Does anyone else see a problem here with 10 and 11 yr old children trying to kill each other with guns and knives?? Come on parents, time to start controlling these kids, they will only get older and gain access to bigger knives and more powerful guns!! Absolutely ridiculous!
