Kelowna Hells Angel gets five years

Castanet is reporting that Kelowna Hells Angel Joseph Bruce Skreptak and his associate Cory Montemurro were sentenced to five years in prison for numerous weapons offenses from back in 2010. Unlce Joe was pretty proud of himself and gave his supporters a big thumbs up in court. If that guy had half a brain he would be dangerous. I wonder why that grow was abandoned?


  1. New York's complex Third Leg of Crime Enforcement, (NewYorkTimes):

    "Combined at its best with close public cooperation, the concentration of police resources on crime hot spots has been shown, in several studies, to reduce crime without simply pushing it elsewhere, said Daniel S. Nagin, a criminologist at Carnegie Mellon University."

    "Methods used with success in New York City in the mid-1990s under Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani and his police commissioner William J. Bratton have been widely imitated, including the mapping of crime and concentration of forces in trouble spots and use of “CompStat” data and meetings to hold local commanders accountable for crime in their precincts."

    That's how to do it; No words; action..."Compstat" changed everything...


  2. "John F. Timoney, who was No. 2 in the New York Police Department at the time (90's) and later headed police departments in Philadelphia and Miami, said new attention to seemingly minor crimes like public drunkenness and vandalism is also vital."

    “It’s the quality-of-life issues that dominate community meetings,” he said. Pushing street officers to respond, under the so-called broken windows theory, won public support and sometimes headed off more serious criminal behavior, he said."
