So the Harper government thinks we need a a vigilante law. Since tough-on-crime legislation, no matter how silly and unnecessary, is always popular, let's assume this will pass handily. How can we make this law work for the greater good? Will it be easier to arrest Tony Hayward? Dick Cheney? Tony Blair? All the taser-happy cops?
The fact that the NDP and the Liberals have put forth similar private member's bill only proves that pandering is nonpartisan.
Food for thought: a different kind of citizen intervention. Imagine if governments took this approach to crime.
