CANADIAN PRESS ^ | January 8th, 2014

Rapinder Singh Sidhu has pleaded guilty to his role in smuggling cocaine across the Canada-U.S. border and is expected to be sentenced to eight years in prison later this week.

U.S. District Attorney Jenny Durkan says Sidhu also contributed to the corruption of a fellow law enforcement officer who sabotaged his own career by becoming involving in the drug-smuggling scheme


a Canadian border inspector recruited by Sidhu allowed the vehicle to enter B.C. without inspection. Durkan says that in the case of the California load, both drivers received 12 years behind bars and that there’s no justice in the six- to eight-year plea deal bargained for Sidhu.

I thought RCMP’s were REQUIRED to use drugs?

Like our DEA?

Eight years? Not enough.

He should have gotten MORE for shaming his uniform of the RCMP.

What warms, Ah say WARMS the cockels of mah hart (Foghorn Leghorn) is that he is probably SUPER PISSED off at getting caught.

That is totally bizarre. Almost exclusively, when Sikhs are associated with crime, it is against the Sikh. They pride themselves in being top notch soldiers, in whatever army, and police. As civilians, they tend to be middle class and entrepreneurial.

This does not mean they are pacifists. You really do not want to get into a fight with a Sikh. But hearing of a Sikh in a position of authority and smuggling drugs is pretty danged odd.

That this particular one looks like a rather plump Sean Connery means a lot, particularly in that he is not wearing his turban. This suggests that he is an ex-Sikh.

The RCMP as past shaming, they’re no longer anything respectful.

I have lost complete faith in them. I almost joined them after my army stint, thank heavens I didn’t. Though they called me once a week for a year after that, was ridiculous.

I had a conversation on the way to my christmas holidays with a 33 year vet, and topic turned to firearms. The bottom line is he thinks it’s completely crazy to allow civilians the access to any firearms and that thought is held by many. That alarmed me. He said guns only belong in the hands of police and military.

Agreed. I could go on and on, but I won't.
