The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Canadian Cops and Criminals

Canadian Cops and Criminals


James Bredin

The courts have decided that racial profiling is a defense,
It doesn’t matter the crime nor does it matter the offence,
Therefore the crime statistics will increase -- climb higher and higher,
And it doesn’t matter the crimes, the drugs, the seller or the buyer.

The cops are now on trial, every trial, because of their attitude,
Whether or not they gave certain criminals enough latitude,
And the evidence, the conviction, the crime and the charge,
Mean nothing ‘cause the cops are at fault and the criminals are at large.

You may not notice the change in the numbers for quite a while,
Managed propaganda of the media tends to hide and beguile,
As the conviction rate goes down and criminals walk free,
The cops and the judges and the criminals will be thinking of thee.
