After a recent experience in traffic, I have greater insight as to why we have such high property crime in Red Deer.
I was pulled over by a wannabe police officer over a plastic plate cover on my licence plate. It does not obscure my plate information, it protects my property and bounces back photo radar. Hence the reasons I bought it: over an increase of an unconstitutional tax system to provide more funding for the city to squander.
I had received a photo ticket on the Gaetz Bridge north with the address of the offence as somewhere on Northey Avenue. A place I never go.
I have the right to protect myself and my property using whatever method I can access for reasons deemed necessary. Tell that to the peace officer following me around the day after I was pulled over. Since when are they above the law?
Given that experience, its no wonder the property crimes in downtown Red Deer are peaking. Our so-called law enforcement is preoccupied chasing a flap of plastic around rather than patrolling a drug riddled neighborhood. Public servants, my aunty! That remains to be seen.
See you in court.
