a. Go back to sleep
b. Go after the guy
c. Wait for the RCMP
d. None of the above, the guy is obviously a disadvantaged person who needs your vehicle much more than you ever will, and hey, he deserves it because of his tough life.
If you picked d. you are a lefty bleeding heart who has never had any run-ins with the law, or you are a lefty bleeding heart who has a kid in jail.
If you picked b. you are a knuckle dragging neanderthal who supports gun ownership and believes that your property is actually yours.
City slickers think crime does not happen in rural areas, they also think meat comes from the supermarket frozen food section. They think gun BANS will stop gun killings. They lock their doors and their minds, they ignore the fact that their own kids are the problem, and they blame the government for not protecting them while refusing to co-operate with them in crime investigations.
Rural people out of necessity are a close knit community. If something bad happens, they band together and solve the problem. They do not think the RCMP will protect them, but they do know that they can protect themselves.
Enter the criminal and the RCMP.
An Alberta farmer who is facing charges after police say he chased and shot at an alleged thief last Thursday has people from across the province rallying to his defence.
Brian Knight was charged with seven offences, including assault and criminal negligence, after police say he took the law into his own hands when he thought someone was stealing his All-Terrain Vehicle.
This is an indication of how sick our liberal society has become. Start a swingers club, no problem. Chase a guy who is stealing your property, you get charged. Funny thing is, we all know that Brian Knight is being charged, but the police are keeping the name of the REAL criminal under wraps. So, they protect the criminal and vilify the homeowner who was the innocent victim.
Our justice system is royally screwed up. Think about what the law abiding Knight is going through right now. Think about the expense of defending himself. He would have never been in this position if a criminal had not tried to steal from him, but he did and he is already out on bail.
We never used to lock our doors, but the criminals have made it so that we have to, we even have a bat right behind our door encase someone tries to get into our house. As kids we disappeared all day and our parents never worried. Now, we don't even dare let them walk to school by themselves.
Do you feel that vise around your life, that feeling of disgust with our justice system? If there was ever a case where we, the suffering majority, should rise up and protest, this is it.
I hope that Knight chooses a trial by jury, because there is not a jury in Alberta that will convict him of anything major.
