Yes, there are bad cops(too many) who should have the badge taken away

from them; they disgrace it.  That doesn't mean all are bad, or that because a suspect who dies was black that it was automatically because of 'RACISM!'.  Or that being listed as 'unarmed' means they weren't a threat.

It's been said that the War On Drugs has done at least as much damage to this country as the drugs; the OBLM clowns, and the racists in politics who ignore all the deaths of blacks at the hands of other blacks except when they think they can use it politically, has done more damage to black communities than the KKK could.  Can you imagine the delight of those bastards at the numbers of blacks killed in drive-bys, the straight-up murders, the glorification of gangs?  But the REAL concern, according to the idiots, is white cops(well, ALL whites, but let's shorten the list to the most-guilty according to them).  But if you bring that up, you get the standard "You're a racist!" from the idiots.  Because bringing up data that conflicts with the Preferred Narrative™ is not to be allowed.

Yeah, the Canadian health system is GREAT, right?
This edition of Waiting Your Turn indicates that, overall, waiting times for medically necessary treatment have not improved since last year. Specialist physicians surveyed report a median waiting time of 18.3 weeks between referral from a general practitioner and receipt of treatment—slightly longer than the 18.2 week wait reported in 2014. This year’s wait time is 97% longer than in 1993 when it was just 9.3 weeks.
There is also a great deal of variation among specialties. Patients wait longest between a GP referral and orthopae-dic surgery (35.7 weeks), while those waiting for radiation oncology begin treatment in 4.1 weeks.
Patients also experience significant waiting times for various diagnostic technologies across the provinces. This year, Canadians could expect to wait 4.0 weeks for a computed tomography (CT) scan, 10.4 weeks for a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, and 4.0 weeks for an ultrasound.
Great, isn't it?  No wonder people keep insisting I'm lying about its wonders when I point out they have real problems.

Just to add to this, someone sent me this link from a British news site on hospitals there:
* as well as 43 people who starved to death, 287 people were recorded by doctors as being malnourished when they died in hospitals;

* there were 558 cases where doctors recorded that a patient had died in a state of severe dehydration in hospitals;

* 78 hospital and 39 care home patients were killed by bedsores, while a further 650 people who died had their presence noted on their death certificates;

* 21,696 were recorded as suffering from septicemia when they died, a condition which experts say is most often associated with infected wounds.
"These are people's mothers, fathers, and grandparents," she said. "It is hard enough to lose a loved one, but to find out that they died because they were not adequately fed or hydrated, is a trauma no family should have to bear."
There's more.  Remember, this is the system that Obama & Co. said we should emulate because 'it works so well'.

That system works so well that the hospital in bellingham washington is a huge world class facility because so many canadians come south of the border for things like cat scans and heart surgery. juat like the reason bellingham has it's own tv station is the market available across the border. canadian patients in the hospital and canadian ads on the tv. (plus canada's anti-us content laws mean their stations can't carry a lot of american programming).

Thank you for adding The Last Tradition to your blog roll. I did likewise

There are no good cops. There are bad cops who lie, steal, abuse,
assault and murder innocent people. And there are the bad cops who
witness these crimes and DO NOTHING. If there were good cops then
the bad cops would be held accountable. They's be fired, arrested and
tried. But that only happens on rare instances and usually instances
involving video from cameras that the badgemonkeys didn't know about.

The VERY VERY RARE good cop who tries to do the right thing is abused, denigrated, retaliated against and driven off the force
by the overwhelming majority of criminals in blue.

At this point, all the cops who have been on the force for more than a year are bad. One bad apple spoils the barrel, and the barrel has been full of bad apples for a long long time.
