The City of Regina continues its crackdown on hardened criminals. 
Just recently, it nabbed a hardened criminal and tossed him in jail 
- -- a pot-smoking, AIDS-suffering guy whose renewed Health Canada 
permit arrived late. Not long ago, Regina tossed a woman in jail for 
a bunch of unpaid parking tickets. Before that, it was a grandmother 
thrown in jail for taking off her top in a swimming pool.

All hardened criminals these, posing monstrous risks to society.

Meanwhile, the car thieves, break-and-enter artists, and murderers 
continue unabated their unprecedented crime spree, solidly 
entrenching Regina as the No. 1 crime capital of Canada.

One would have thought that Regina would have heard of that famous 
saying -- if one continues doing the same things, one can expect the 
same results.
