Well. The many people whose homes were robbed made a "contribution" I guess....

Well B, you don't have to worry about the "political correctness" you are clearly anti-poverty. What you need to ask yourself (well said Mark) is what are you doing about it? By yiur rhetoric I would guess, buying a taller fence. We are all primal beings at our core; there is typically a motive behind anyone's action. You are right on one count; if policy continues to ignore the needs of this expanding segment of our population you will be inconvenienced by more of them.

This is the giving back, that the Liberals speak of, and if they happen to find your Teenage Daughter home, well you left her home defenseless and unarmed. 911 is only good if you have 10 minutes of safety, to call, explain the situation, give your address and wait for the Cop to get done with his doughnut and coffee!
