I watch Victoria police wait around for 12 hours plus in their cars. The shift changes and new vehicles take up their places. The USA, Russia, China cops wouldn't sit around and wait for the suspect to get bored, hungry, or die of old age to take down their collar. They would put up close behind the special police units as they do a apartment search of all suites and houses. Send the dogs in to flush them out and then gas them if necessary. Go into the hideout with guns drawn and take them out if they try to resist and shoot back. Only in Canada and Victoria do cops use the die of old age tactic in criminal take down. Doesn't it get really boring? I'm sure the reporters were hoping for a flashy and exciting raid.

I agree with many other people when I say that Victoria area cops have no guts. The society and the system have made them wimpy. USA, Russian, Chinese and many cops in Africa, South America, Asia wouldn't sit around and waste time and resources for the bad guys to give up and maybe get old. They will take out their guns, gas, stun grenades, door rams, and bust their way in to take out the naughty people in masculine and dramatic fashion, quickly. What they have in Victoria BC is a "pussified" police force and government.
