Systemic Corruption in the Police Force
It is no secret that cops are corrupt. This is not a new phenomena and it has been going on since Augustus, the first emperor of Rome enacted one of the first organized police force in 27 B.C. He created a special unit of undercover operatives housed among the civilian residents. This was in order to keep him safe so he was not assassinated, unlike his uncle, Julius Caesar.

We live in a society that cannot function without technology and being anonymous is pretty difficult. Many people are attached to their smart phones, vehicles have GPS and the internet has become a tool in education, research, entertainment and has made our lives easier (until it is not working and then people freak the hell out).

I suspect that initially that is why a person wanted to go into law enforcement, however, now it seems a person with a badge and uniform can blatantly break the law without repercussions. Great job if you can get it. [ Read Full ]

I Love Regina...
Last week people celebrated I Love Regina Day with music, festivities and food galore. At the same time this was happening a critical part the bridge over Pilote Butte Creek on Victoria Ave. E has been deemed unsafe and has been restricted for large trucks. The city of Regina has been aware of this problem for many years of the structural safety and yet did not at any time deem it was important enough to invest in fixing and are now scrambling to find a temporary solution.
