Where There Is No Law Enforcement

Frontier Justice will fill the void.

Here, in microcosm, is what the Trudeaupian approach to crime and punishment has achieved in forty years: a drunken, seventeen year-old vandal out trashing cars is shot dead by a "known gang associate" at 3:15 am.

At 17, Adem Aliu would have known that he had, for 3 years, been considered sufficiently mature under Canerdian law to have sex with Swipe Robinson, but not to be held responsible for crimes. Indeed, he is being described by (*sigh*) RCMP (when will we be rid of them?) as having behaved "like a stupid child." Uh, no, stupid child is sticking chewing gum on the underside of the school desk, Dudley. Put the donut down and try again, 'This sort of thing can happen if you engage in high-risk criminal behaviors'. Something like that.

Predictably, the tributes are pouring in for the dead punk drunk. He's been described as "the nicest guy" by his friend, Ernest Giundza. One wonders how Aliu might have expressed his gratitude for and appreciation of being allowed to come here from the pest-hole known as Albania if he weren't such a "nice guy."
"Every time you needed help, he was always there." Does that mean Aliu was always there to help Giundza destroy other people's property? By holding his drink, perhaps? "He would do anything for you." Except not trash your car. "Giundza said that as far as he knew, Adem wasn't mixed up in drugs." Doesn't alcohol count?

Note how the Global report keeps using the first name. Why not call him "Poor little Adem" and be done with it?
Seventeen year olds pretended they were older so they could go off and fight Hitler not that awfully long ago. How times have changed.
And how screwed up have things become when a waste of skin like this rates a Facebook tribute page?

Personally, I've not noticed any shortage of assholes, imported or otherwise, and if some of Aliu's currently surviving pals get to "thinking" (to whatever degree they may be capable) that they could get plugged next, perhaps they'll mind their manners. If that's what it takes, then so be it, because officialdumb ain't gonna do SFA.

Reading your article I just wasted my time,since it showed you DAVID are a ignorant,unproffessional writer, and lack on knowledge.Only thing you seemed to be good at is judging people,and labeling
countries,but that it is your opinion bazed on your feelings and not in facts.Your opinion does not matter at all,do yourselve a favour and educate yourselve before you try to write again.

"Only thing you seemed to be good at is judging people,"

Well, I'm not Solomon, but when it comes to attacking members of society in their property, I'm a 'Lockeian', so to speak, state of war and all that. I'm sure I don't have to draw you pictures.

As for facts, well, I consider stuff like this:
'GDP - per capita (PPP):

$6,300 (2009 est.)
country comparison to the world: 131
$6,100 (2008 est.)
$5,800 (2007 est.)
note: data are in 2009 US dollars ...
Unemployment rate:

12.8% (2009 est.)
country comparison to the world: 135
12.8% (2008 est.)
note: these are official rates, but actual rates may exceed 30% due to preponderance of near-subsistence farming

Population below poverty line:

25% (2004 est.)
Household income or consumption by percentage share:

lowest 10%: 3.2%
highest 10%: 25.9% (2005)
Distribution of family income - Gini index:

26.7 (2005)
country comparison to the world: 126 "

Actually, as you mention "facts", I'm finding none in your comment, VB.

Oops, forgot the link:

NB: " ... preponderance of near-subsistence farming"
May help to explain why people remain such a healthy export:
