The police in this country are appalling.

Marc Scott Emery hosted a peaceful demonstration at the Winnipeg
police department.

Marc is a marijuana activist. He was asserting our newly gained right
to possess and use small quantities of marijuana.

Although marijuana laws were abolished, our boys in blue continue to
assert their own agenda.

As a matter of fact, Winnipeg police spokesman Bob Johnson said, "It's
pretty simple. If they break the law, they'll be arrested, because
there's been no changes in the law to date."

That quote clearly demonstrates the boys in blue not only have
contempt for the people of this fine city but contempt for our judges
and courts.
