  1. All of these worthless, chicken shit JPS and judges should be granted “JAIL” for the bullshit law they’re practising.

    WTF will it take to get these gutless civil servant to do their jobs properly???

    WHERE’S THE PROTECTION OF THE PUBLIC? WHY ARE DANGEROUS CAREER CRIMINALS GETTING A PAT ON THE ASS AND PUT BACK ON THE STREETS?

    DO YOUR JOBS YOU SPINELESS COWARDS!

    The public are going to have to start harassing the minister of justice and start picketing the court house. This bullshit “rubber stamp” law does nothing to curb criminal activity nor provide safety for the public. Enough is enough!

  2. Congratulations to the hard working Police officers that tirelessly work their asses off. Getting these assholes off the streets must feel like a game of Wack A Mole as it seems like you take down 5 and 15 pop back up. As for the Ontario court system and fellow judges…WAKE UP! You people have the power to put your foot down on these SOB’S! Start making some examples out of these losers and enough with the kid gloves. When you guys continuously let these animals back out on the streets, by doing that you’re undermining the hard working Police that just tracked them down, hauled them in, just for you morons let them loose. Nice team work! You’d think the law would be on the law’s side.

  3. All these judge’s must be using what these gang’s and dealers are selling or their involved in the selling of the drugs too.Something is fishy here.
