We started our monthly Nanny State Ninny Awards a while ago and have exposed some notable examples of state intrusion into our private lives. But our winner for June might be the most egregious example to date of unwanted bureaucratic interference yet.
That’s because usually, the busybody entity is REACTING to an existing activity it deems unsavoury or unsafe, but this one involves the Nanny State CREATING a problem on purpose and then later “fixing” it — at taxpayer expense.
I know that sounds confusing so watch as I explain why Regina Police and the “seatbelt sting” they created and are shamelessly profiting from, deserve attention.
There’s nothing I love more than good policing but there’s nothing I despise more than bad policing.
This Regina Police sting operation penalizes good-hearted people for being charitable and it should cease immediately, assuming the Regina Police Service truly wants to be treated as a credible organization.
