Vigilante justice to return to Vancouver

Let’s hear it for taking the law into our own hands. Huzzah. The Guardian Angels who haven’t operated in Vancouver since 1992 are looking to make a return to the city to clean Vancouver up Punisher style [cbc]. Tying in nicely with Pride Week [mbv] they wear nice little berets and really dig the deep crimson red colouring for their dashing threads.

Who wouldn’t want to be rescued by one of those knights in French hatware?

Oh and the fact that the crime rate in Vancouver has fallen since the Guardian Angels left Vancouver in 1992? Well let’s not talk about that one, it’s obviously some kind of statistical fluke.

    Crime – and not merely the perception of it – is still an issue in Vancouver. Property crime (ie. car break-ins, vandalism and petty theft) is definitely a problem in this city, no matter which neighborhood you live in.

    Frankly, I don’t know whether the Guardian Angels are what is needed to clean it up. I’d rather pay a few extra dollars on my taxes to get some more cops working the beat, and prisons built so that the criminals actually get taken out of society for a while. Since that isn’t happening, I’m open to seeing what the Guardian Angels can do.
