We all can already readily know that the police brass in Canada and Canada wide also tend to be guilty of empire building too and they are too often beating a dead horse asking for more and more money too since most cops, the RCMP included they do tend to be very ineffective in their jobs still…. still in Ontario A first-class constable starts at a salary of $83,259. this is even an uneducated person. . Cleary the police are also now very much not cost effective.. In fact most criminals in Canada are never apprehended.. Now also they the police cannot have it both ways.. the Police brass often do like to point out that the overall crime rates are down indicating that the police have been doing a good job at the while they same time while they are asking for more money to improve, upgrade the police services.. this distortions fails to admit the high number of criminals never caught, jailed, apprehended and now still when the police are given a whole bunch of money, millions of dollars to spend it always should still be their job still to spend the money in a responsible, accountable manner. Recently I ,myself had encountered a, on the job cop supervisor with a radio shopping in a bicycle store trying to buy a bike outfit for himself, and he was called away to deal with a an ongoing crime, that also still is not an acceptable use of tax payer’s money.. shopping while on duty!
“Prof. Lee demonstrates how rare it is for criminals to spend any time at all in prison, whether federal prisons or the comparatively less harsh provincial ones. Of the almost 2.5 million crimes reported to police annually in Canada, only about 250000 (10%) result in convictions. Meanwhile, among those convicted, only about 27% will go to prison, roughly 25% to provincial jails and 2% to federal ones. The remaining 73% are let out with time served, sentenced to community service or fined. People have given up reporting crime to police because there are so few convictions any more, and those there are carry with them ridiculously light punishments.People under 30 commit most of society’s crimes, and there is simply a smaller portion of Canadians under 30 than there were two or three decades ago.
It is likely that more than seven million crimes are committed each year in Canada. If that’s the case, then convictions are won in just 3.4% of crimes, and prison terms are handed out in just under 1%. The chance of doing “federal time” is less than one-tenth of 1%, when taken in relation to the number of total crimes committed.
It is ludicrous to imagine that criminals don’t instinctively understand these long odds, and that they aren’t thereby emboldened to commit crimes.
Our incarceration rates are only one-sixth those of the United States — 116 per 100,000 population versus 756 per 100,000 — largely because we don’t lock people away for committing property crimes. Our incarceration rates also are lower than the average for the world’s 34 developed countries, and are substantially lower than in other common-law countries such as England and Wales, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand.” http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2011/03/23/lorne-gunter-canada-is-hardly-a-country-of-jailbirds/
THE UNDENIABLE CANADIAN REALITY IS IF YOU REPORT A CRIME TO THE LOCAL OR NATIONAL POLICE IS THEY LIKLEY WILL TRY TO PASS THE BUCK TO SOMEONE ELSE, OR FIND REASONS NOT TO INVESTIGATE THE MATTER ESPECIALLY TILL THE STATUTE OF LIMITATION RUNS OUT, WHICH IS ABOUT 6 MONTHS, BUT THE SAME POLICE WILL LOUDLY ASK FOR A RAISE, MORE MONEY FOR THEIR TOO OFTEN BAD PERFORMANCES.
Note – revenue generating traffic tickets offenders is what the cops are only good at catching mostly still too..
If you are non white it is also more likley that you will be arrested and jailed..
GREAT NEWS FOR CANADA’S MANY CRIMINALS RARELY ARRESTED AND CONVICTED TOO.. THAT AS MANY OF US DO ALSO KNOW INCLUDES OUR MAJOR TELECOMMUNICATION FIRMS WHO DO TOO OFTEN UNDENIABLY LIE TO US, ABUSE US, ARE GUILTY OF FALSE ADVERTING AND ARE ALSO RARELY PROSECUTED OR HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR IT TOO
