When I say criminal, I mean a person who has committed a crime (broken the law). They're any kind of people.
I know. I'm one of these people, at least I think I am... it's still a crime to smoke weed in Canada, right?
But I digress. What Canada considers to be crime has little to do with morals as it does population control. Like what Nixon said, can't have those
damn kids reading books and smoking marijuana cigarettes.
There is a hierarchy within organized crime. The Hell's Angels, or other groups like them, are at the top - which has its own internal power
structure. Below them are the major importers, who receive very large quantities of product. They pass this down to local sources. Who then in turn
pass it on to your friendly neighborhood drug dealer. If any person acts out of line, those higher up will react. Now we can also argue that it goes
even higher than the Hell's Angels and into the political and economic world, but I think everyone can agree on that.
Not sure where you're from but it's different here in BC. Mind you there's two different types of drugs on the market; the natural kind that
expand your mind and the cost-cutting, mind-melting drugs that destroy you. I'm in favor of the first, and most of BC's natural drugs are grown,
sold and used locally, and usually have nothing to do with the bad drugs. Bad drug operations are run by high-level gangs and generally have to be
well organized, but like I said, I condemn people who use crap like crack coc aine or meth as much as the people who produce it.
But just like the gun registry program, it's a joke. Gun registry program was said to be put in effect to prohibit the guns that criminals use.
Unfortunately criminals tend to use the same models of guns that police do, or guns that are imported anyways and have nothing to do with Canadian
firearms. Same story for bad drugs, the people producing it have enough influence within all police, RCMP and political levels to never even see
these new prisons that Mr. Day is going on about.
EDIT: Just to add a comment to people who think "unreported crimes" concept is good because it would encourage people to report more crimes.
Considering the true anarchist nature of Canadians, this would lead to a lot more gang hits on rats and would eventually create much more of a problem
that never existed in the first place... but that's the Canadian way!
