KAMLOOPS RESIDENTS are getting tired of the phrase, “known to police.”
Hearing it mentioned in every crime-related news story elicits groans and eye rolls from the law-abiding population.
It shouldn’t be a surprise that the people who commit all manner of crimes are criminals.
In reality, what Canada needs is a detention system that better rehabilitates offenders and prepares them to stay out of trouble when they get out.
