CANADIAN JUSTICE SYSTEM... APR 2ND,2013


CANADIAN JUSTICE SYSTEM … Apr 2ND,2013
By
James Bredin



If you kill a cop and say that you are mad, they might let you off,
Decisions of our manipulated justice system can be rough,
No capital punishment because we’re politically correct,
With politicians and appointed judges who think they’re perfect.




Our appointees seem to make their decisions with glee,
No referendums, recall or death-with-dignity for you or me,
The notion of changing the constitution will not be accepted,
Things are fine the way they are and nothing much is expected,




These Ottawa aristocrats told Sue Rodriguez to die,
Other Canadians were not allowed to even ask why,
They can do it in Switzerland and Oregon but not here,
We can’t die in dignity; so death could be something to fear.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
