    Violent crime, including murder, rape and physical assault, is running rampant in German asylum shelters, according to a leaked intelligence report. German authorities, who appear powerless to stem the rising tide of violence, have justified their failure to inform the public about the scale of the problem by citing the privacy rights of the criminal offenders.

    This is obviously a symptom of white privilege. White people expect to be able to do their drugs and leave the discarded refuse for people of colour to collect for them. It's the colonial mindset that is still present in the consciousness of white people today. Education is needed more than ever to make these white people understand the concept of equality.

    More proof that the coastal Provinces are full of degenerates and people who have no self-control.

    What if there was a 25 cent return on all needles at approved locations willing to help reduce the needles left around?
    I remember sweeping up needles in the basement of a pool hall we rented for cheap years ago as a band practice space.
    Heroin must be rather humbling to those stuck on it..

    Ottawa has a very high negro and (red) indian population.
    Wherever the negro and the indian go they bring crime and drugs.
