  1. Obviously it’s not mandatory nor recommended to stop a piece of shit from doing something like this, but I would not be able to stand idly by watching some junky with a butter knife rob a place.

    I would be in jail for burying that knife in the perps ass.
    Which would be a Small price to pay for a life long reminder to the criminal.

  2. The guy was a jerk and for the guy that never helped you cannot blame him for that as you never know what the perp is like if he is strung out then he could be super strong and no one wants to get themselves hurt or maybe killed over a few lousy dollars let the thief take what he wants with the pic that they had of him the police would know who he was right away. Just be thankful that it was only a butter knife which is quite hilarious and not a gun and he never hut anyone. He is now in custody and will hopefully get to spend some time in the good old crow bar hotel maybe for a few years anyway. One more addict off the streets at least for a short while wonder if it was all worth it to him.

      A few years!!! Ha! Do you look at the lame sentencing coming down from Thunder Bay judges? Gladue will ensure he doesn’t get the time he deserves.

      I doubt he’ll get a few months. He probably won’t even appear for court. He’ll likely get out on bail and disappear into the bush until the heat’s off then squirm his way back into the city.
