The difference between Suspect and Person of Interest


Patty Winsa wrote an article in the Greater Toronto Area section of the Toronto Star that reminded me of how pampered criminals in the United States have become.

Canadian law enforcement still has the guts to use the term suspect in criminal investigations. The term suspect has been replaced by person of interest in the United States. We watched a movie at Bryant Park in NYC where a citizen openly berated a police officer for being too rough on a belligerent, drunken bum. Maybe being too soft on scofflaws started with Rodney King, but I am sick and tired of hooligans being overly protected.

The article also discloses that black and brown people are carded  disproportionately more by the Canadian police. This is referred to as racial profiling in the United States.

  1. Kristy Abreu is filing lawsuit for 210 million. She was pulled over in NYC and accused of driving a stolen vehicle. The police officers were acting on computer records that were wrong. Lawsuit has no basis. Get over yourself beauty queen! Police officers losing power due to spoiled citizenry.
