SAINT JOHN, N.B. -- The normally peaceful New Brunswick island of Grand Manan may not have seen the last of the violence that ended in a suspected crack house being burned to the ground by a mob of so-called vigilantes.

I heard there was a house fire in my beat, at an intesection that has a lot of crack sales, on my first day off and I've spent every waking (and some sleeping moments) dreaming of it being a particular residence.

Maybe this is a spreading neighborhood watch technique

If the Canadian national police force, the RCMP, did its job and enforced the country's laws, there would have been no need for the local citizens to take matters into their own hands. Perhaps the problem is that the RCMP is centrally commanded by the Canadian federal government and has no accountability to local authorities, who are more likely than central government bureaucrats to be responsive to the local concerns. This incident evidences the wisdom of the old slogan, "Support your local police and keep them independent."

When the Government cant or wont do their job abd control drugs, The people have to do it for them.

I love the way the journalist calls these citizens a mob and so-called Vigilantes.

We all know in our neighborhoods where the drug sales are going down, the police know, and they dont do anything. They claim they cant get evidence ,or they arrest them and the perps are home before the paperwork is done. Their lawyers have them back on the street and selling more drugs before the ink is dry on the paper. When you see kids as young as 14 becoming addicts and the law isnt doing anything it becomes time to send a warning. Burning down the crack house is a warning. Perhaps next they burn one with some drug dealers still inside.

I don’t think the problem is the RCMP, they have no problem arresting the bad guys. However the courts are extremely lenient when it comes to drug crimes and it comes at a price.

I agree. I don't live in a big city because of the crime, but it isn't far away. The article shows how far the plague of hard drugs has spread. Heck, it's pretty darn cold up there to do and sell crack.

"'undocumented law-enforcement officials'."

I think "differently-credentialed law-enforcement officials" sounds less derogatory.

You are probably right with respect to the Canadian courts. I believe the Canadian judiciary and legal systems are more centralized than ours, with a greater degree of Federal oversight than we have. Given that the Liberal Party, which is more or less like our Democratic Party, has been dominant for most of the last 40 years, it is probable that the bleeding hearts dominate the judiciary.

We had a meth lab in a house in our suburban neighborhood--kids lived next door and across the street. It took us two years to get rid of them thru proper channels (of course we had a democrat DA at the time).

Pity you couldn't photoshop a picture of the DA's kid going up the steps of the crack house. Then something would be done.

"We had a meth lab in a house in our suburban neighborhood--kids lived next door and across the street. It took us two years to get rid of them thru proper channels"

Meth labs are infamous for exploding. Get a gallon of gasoline, and pour it inside said house. Wait for gasoline to vaporize. Let nature take its course. When the fire marshall investigates, they figure the cookers got careless.

It's not the fault of the police, it's the fault of those who constantly tie the hands of the police. They arrest people, and they're back out on the street before the poor policemen even had time to complete their paperwork.

The trouble is, vigilantes can be the bad guys too - here in Ireland, vigilantes are usually members of the IRA attacking drug pushers for not paying their protection money.

Vigilence - the condition of being watchful or careful with respect to hazard or danger. Vigilante-someone who acts with vigilence.

I like that.

I am shocked! Absolutely shocked. Grand Manan is well known for its dulse, lobster and fish, as well as a honey moon haven for gay newly wed RCMP officers.

I wonder why the Granbd manan public has lost confidence in the Royal Mounted and taken matters into their own hands!

Shocking , I tell you , shocking!
