Crime Wave: Cons Rule.

Crime wave, we're having a ReformaTory crime wave.

Here's Vic Toews laying more ground work for justifying the building of mega-prisons.
Six Toronto Jewish groups are getting federal cash to combat hate crimes, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews announced Monday. Toews pledged almost $90,000 for the groups as part of the Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure pilot program.

“The unfortunate reality is that Canada is not immune to those who target individuals or groups based on their race, culture, religion or identity,” Toews said [...] He stressed that while hate crimes often are limited to property damage, they still cause profound damage to those targeted. “Often hate-motivated crime can put an entire community into a state of fear and anxiety, this is unacceptable and that’s why we are here today,” he said.
From here.

Toews did not hand out money to community organizations working to prevent homophobic or gynophobic crimes or to provide support to those targeted, still suffering from the "profound damage" that physical and sexual assaults cause.

Wanna bet, dollars to donuts, that contracts to build and manage those privatized mega-prisons will be handed out to contributors who donated so generously to Stalinist Steve's re-election fund?

Here a little something to cheer you up.

And the hits just keep on coming!

Does this mean that those big-assed prisons won't house Jewish criminals? Reported or 'unreported'?

Indeed. Not only are we NOT immune from these creeps, enuff of us are so brain-dead that we vote them into power.

Hey-maybe Toews and his band of ReformaTory married men are having delusional fantasies that "family values" are going to make a comeback & there will be lots of "reported" adulterers to stuff in those big-assed prisons.

Oops-maybe not.

And so the idiocy continues.

Like Thwap said, we have them in power. Let's throw Harper and his gang in jail for their hate motivated crimes, officially unreported, against First Nations, muslims, women, LGBT and youth.
