A federal prison in the Canadian province of Alberta is reportedly ready to begin the first supervised drug injection site for prisoners.
A correctional officers’ union says the facility in Drumheller — in the heart of the province’s dinosaur fossil country — could be up and running by the end of June, the National Post reported Friday.
Supervised inflection sites already dot the Canadian urban landscape with numerous programs in operation in cities from Vancouver to Toronto. The sites allow drug addicts to inject themselves with heroin — illegal anywhere in Canada — without fear of police intervention.
The first such site in North America was opened in 2003 in Vancouver, B.C., a city that is currently experiencing record high levels of heroin and opioid overdoses, despite the original facility, and a second, being in operation. Vancouver is also looking at decriminalizing heroin use in a controversial attempt at reducing drug deaths.

National Statistics on Recidivism — who gets arrested again and again
Bureau of Justice Statistics studies have found high rates of recidivism among released prisoners. One study tracked 404,638 prisoners in 30 states after their release from prison in 2005. The researchers found that:
Within three years of release, about two-thirds (67.8 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
Within five years of release, about three-quarters (76.6 percent) of released prisoners were rearrested.
Property offenders were the most likely to be rearrested, with 82.1 percent of released property offenders arrested for a new crime compared with 76.9 percent of drug offenders, 73.6 percent of public order offenders and 71.3 percent of violent offenders.
It’s time that local Santa Cruz county politicians set policies that save fragile resources.
Per the FOX interview (see above link), the top ICE official says that ICE can process 10 inmates in in one 8 hour shift. Vastly more time and resources are required for ICE to find the”bad dudes” who were released back on the streets.
Connect with data bases so it’s easier to capture the truly “bad dudes” committing horrific crimes across the USA.
Currently ICE has access to local law enforcement databases, organized by states, such as Arizona and Texas, and metropolitan regions, such as the greater Seattle, Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. areas. In Arizona, AZLink, the database that experienced the most DHS searches during this period, pools together information from numerous law enforcement agencies across the state.
The person-power required for ICE find the “bad dudes” released back into the community is huge.
ICE targets individuals known to be at certain places in Santa Cruz and Watsonville, CA. By putting the work on ICE go find them in the community generates fears concerning who else will be picked up.
Releasing “bad dudes” back on the streets puts Santa Cruz county at risk of more crime.
The known rate for re-offending is over high. Over 50% will be arrested again within one year. So — by releasing the “bad guys” back on the streets local Santa Cruz and Watsonville Sanctuary City policies are directly responsible for more crime in Santa Cruz, Watsonville and elsewhere in the county.
Let’s hold our local Santa Cruz and Watsonville CA politicians accountable. Cooperate with ICE so that the”bad dudes” — the really “bad dudes” — are put on ice and if appropriate deported. Let’s stop the revolving doors at our local Santa Cruz and Watsonville jails wherein those arrested are quickly put back on the streets. What say you?

‘Safe inside his alabaster chamber’ – Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago
Chicago can’t spare cops to investigate death of man ‘found floating’ in Lake Michigan.
Dispatchers tried to assign the drowning call around 2 p.m. But every 19th District cop was tied up, assigned to other duties–like watching the mayor’s house.
This may strike you as odd, but while that man was dying on the sand, there were seven cops doing essentially nothing in the same police district. Two were assigned to sit in front of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s house at 4228 N. Hermitage. Another two were committed to sitting in the back of the mayor’s house. Another two were assigned to a roving car that circles the mayor’s home. And the seventh was the sergeant in charge of the mayor’s castle guard.
Firenze Sage writes: Rahm opposes gun permits for others. Rahm has more guards than a drug lord.
Over the course of roughly six years, about 207,000 “foreign aliens” were booked into jail in Texas.
Look at the multitude of crimes that they committed. This is President Obama’s legacy — by not enforcing USA borders.
The Texas Department of Public Safety identified 207,076 foreign aliens who were booked into Texas county jails from October 2008 through August 1, 2014. Their term “foreign aliens” includes both foreigners who are in Texas legally and foreigners who entered illegally.
They were accused of 357,884 crimes in those 70 months, including these charges: 4,413 terroristic threats, 60,973 robberies and larcenies, 6,636 vehicle thefts, 78,682 assaults, 12,869 sexual assaults and offenses, 1,113 kidnapping, and 3,089 homicides.
That includes, an average of 1,383 charges of sexual assaults per year, in Texas alone. The real number of rapes and sexual assaults is larger since many victims do not report these crimes.
According to the National Crime and Victimization Survey, 2008-2012, approximately 68% of sexual assault crimes are not reported. So I estimate that foreigners commit roughly 4,000 sexual assaults in Texas each year.
In Texas, roughly 529 foreigners per year were accused of committing murder. Plus, the FBI reports that 36% of homicides nationwide remain unsolved
Firenze Sage: Well some came out of the shadows.As in lie in wait.
