It really bothers me when I see police hassling innocent people for "crimes" that do not harm society. Vancouver has a very serious problem with gang violence yet the police are wasting time giving tickets to homeless people for jaywalking and other harmless crimes. There is also discrimination and selective enforcement happening. If a businessman in a nice suit is drunk in public and pees in an alley, police look the other way, but if a homeless or poor person does it they arrest him. What is the point of giving tickets to people to have no money to pay them? I think police should be going after people who are a genuine danger to society and stop harrassing people for things that are harmless.
