if they really want to do something good why not send them a real greeting card that shows that someone might just give a crap about them beyond the trouble they're in.
this is just a slap in the face as well as a waste of taxpayer money.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.
But Carleton University professor Darryl Davies says the initiative borders on harassment and police time would be better spent enforcing the law.
“I found it absolutely mind-boggling, to be blunt,” said Davies. “I think the police in Abbotsford have too much time on their hands.”
Davies said the mail-out “shows a complete ignorance of what the justice system is all about in this country.”
On the card instead of having a Santa dressed up in swat gear they should have had a nice Christmas picture on the front saying " this is what happens at Christmas - when you are good . Then when you open the card it has a prison "shower & soap " scene in it , saying " this is what happens - when you are bad "
This might help also curb the prison intake

That is funny, but it's also stupid.
Just trying to intimidate them and what will that do? It will annoy most of them and will probably make the annoyed ones more willing to break the law on purpose. Nobody likes threats.
I actually thought the card was going to be nice and they would try a sort of "care bear" tactic of spreading love to try and defrost their hearts a little. But as usual the police prefer intimidation tactics.
What did you expect from the police?

νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.
