Dou­ble stan­dard on drugs, al­co­hol

Re: Po­lice re­sources are ‘stretched,’ chief de­clares, by Dal­son Chen, Sept. 22.

Wind­sor Po­lice have a right to be frus­trated. The po­lice do a very good job catch­ing the bad guy, then the jus­tice sys­tem of­ten gives the per­pe­tra­tor a slap on the wrist, and usu­ally re­leases them with con­di­tions.

In many cases, the per­son or per­sons caught in a crim­i­nal act al­ready have con­di­tions on them, such as breach of re­cog­ni­zance and breach of pro­ba­tion.

The peo­ple who want safe in­jec­tion sites for drug ad­dicts, to over­see and help ad­dicts get off drugs, is commendable.

I won­der, how­ever, do peo­ple with an al­co­hol prob­lem at Brent­wood get al­co­hol to ween them off the booze? Just a thought.
