Beware the Bubbles of Mass Destruction!

I don't get it. If this young medic had pulled out a vuvuzela and blatted it at the police officers, well, yeah, that's assault with a deadly (to the ears) weapon. But children's bubbles? That are blowing all around and children are playing with and chasing? And this dude with the power trip and the veins and muscles twitching on his bald head purports to be a Canadian?

Of course, this being Canada, there *will* be an inquiry, and it'll probably even find that the police officer violated the young medic's civil rights as guaranteed in the Charter of Rights and slap the police officer on the hand, unlike here in the United States where the blue line would draw up and insist nothing was wrong with the cop's actions. Still, it's disconcerting that the rot has started to creep to the other side of the border to what is purportedly the most polite society on the planet...

  1. Makes me want to run to the kitchen to whip up my own batch of bubbles and go on the rampage.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
