First of all, kudos to the Abbotsford Police Department for their outstanding work in quelling the gang violence in our city. Their work has been excellent and should set a standard for the rest of the country.
However, to take the second most peaceful and loving figure in our society, and put an automatic weapon in his hands is ludicrous. As an ex-combat soldier, I am appalled. What is next: Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, armed with an RPG? Imagine an innocent child glancing through the newspaper and seeing his beloved Santa in full fighting order. Please.
Thinking outside the box? Too far I say.
