Stop 'catch and release'

Re. Will more officers help? (Castanet, Nov. 30)

In my opinion, the problem isn’t because perpetrators are not arrested, it is because of the unbelievable “catch and release” idea.

Almost daily, we read on Castanet about repeat offenders not appearing again and again, but when caught again are released with conditions, which they ignore with impunity.

They are free to continue their jolly crime spree with no consequences whatsoever.

It is time we, (residents) of B.C., stand up to this ridiculous idea and push back. Until this stupid idea is quashed we will continue to be the laughing stock of Canada.
