For sixteen months and counting, we’ve read about, seen with our very own eyes and heard with our very own ears from numerous sources that when it comes to policing an area that is under aboriginal occupation there is a system of Two Tier justice that is now well entrenched.
In Caledonia there have been many eye witnesses to this. The most recent example of Two Tier policing involved an aboriginal male waiving, in full view, a loaded AK47, a prohibited weapon in Canada, (we won’t even get into how this prohibited weapon got into Canada), on the DCE, yet not one single OPP officer tried to stop him from leaving the immediate area.
Now, in case you need more proof that areas NOT experiencing aboriginal occupation get proper policing, take the new story of a massive raid in Toronto, in the Jane and Finch area, and other parts of the GTA.
At 5 a.m. people living in the area were awakened by loud banging noises which turned out to be police using battering rams to break down doors and get at suspected criminals…
Take an area with an aboriginal occupation and police walk around on eggshells. Take an area rife with crime but no aboriginal occupation and police act like police are supposed to act when dealing with crime.
