Mr.. Colby, NEXT TIME YOUR IN TROUBLE, CALL A HIPPY. You don't have a clue what it is like, especially someone that has snapped. I would love to see you sit in those shoes, naw your head is to swelled to know what it is like. Yes I am a retired RCMP Officer, and had my good share of hard knocks. In my day there was very little backup, single side band radios, that only worked at night if you want to talk to a squirrel hunter down South. Some of the older detachments that I was in charge of, no lock up, one set of leg irons and couple sets of handcuffs. Try dealing with some of these crazy either drunk, or out of it with moonshine, not to mention the ones that just snapped. Whether it be a Machete, or stapler, they all can do a lot of damage. Want to try a stapler in the side of your head, I would gladly experiment with you. Get on with it, show the police support, God only knows the way things are going in this Country, might not have any kind of Police Protection when the do gooders keep printing garbage. Look at yourself in the mirror sometime and ask, would I go through what our Police and Military go through. No, I guess it is pretty safe writing you columns behind locked doors. You know, I kind of feel sorry for you as you are so far behind the times writing trash. GET A LIFE and support the people that protect you.

Somehow I find myself skeptical that this person ever really passed the RCMP Aptitude Test, which ranks applicants on their cognitive skills, literacy, and judgment. (Snap quiz: is it a good idea to threaten someone with violence in an e-mail? If you said "No" you could be one of the few, the proud, etc.) Mounties may be lazy, careless, or even cruel, but I've never met one who was just a flat-out shit-for-brains.
