    when that same politician's daughter was caught smuggling drugs in a bag of sugar into the prison... got caught red handed.. and the only thing she received was a certain amount of community service hours.. not in the hot sun but in the hospital under AC cleaning floors!!!!!!!!! and on top of that had her criminal record erase.. look it up..
    The police treated them that way for a reason when they found that gun in their home.. most of them who were locked up had some running into the law.. You all need to stop this rubbish and look at the people's past ...

    Now tell me are you going to say she wasn't treated more than fairly in fact more like a queen !!!

      I also remember when a NDP politician drunken son ran down a spanish man. They arrested him in his tourist office and give him bail right there on the spot. The spanish man was paid off and that was the end of that.

    Now i gues that everybody will be saying why the police didnt charge all of them, dont blame the police people, its not their decision, its the DPP who decides who must be charge or not, in this case it was the DPP instruction to charge the father only, lets look closely and see how this one lays out, remember there is a new firearm law in place, we all knows what it entails,

    Can't do anything about a matter if not under the orders of a hierarchy .... No one should be above the law.
