STORY BEHIND THE POEM JUSTICE EH?
.
This poem was written back when drastic changes were being made to the criminal justice system, making it far more lenient on offenders. Pierre and his gang, refferred to in the poem was Pierre Trudeau The Prime Minister of Canada at the time and the Liberal Partry of which he was the leader. Meanwhile I also refer to Kaiser Bill, which was the nickname of Bill Bennett the Premier of the Province of British Columbia.
.
In it I chronicle the decline of the system and how criminals would soon be wandering free. Even I, as bitter as this poem reads, didnít expect the system to degenerate to the point that it has reached today. Criminals arrested today, just laugh. They know they will be free before we can finish the paperwork. I had one crook state to me, after threatening to kill several witnesses, "I will be out tomorrow, I will hunt down and kill every witness, Iíll get out because there isnít a judge around with enough balls to hold me in custody". I included that statement in my report hoping to prove him wrong.
.
It seems he was right, a judge released him the next morning. To date he has not harmed the witnesses, only because he does not know where they live and I refused to include their addresses in my report.
