Red really is a gang colour

While McGirlieman & the provincial liberals are busy patting themselves on the back for a job well done by passing legislation making it illegal for teenagers to leave secondary school before a diploma is obtained or an 18th birthday passed; I would like to take the time to point out just two of the unintended consequences of this piece of legislation.

It will now be mandatory for all teenage drug dealers, thugs and gang-bangers to stay in school and continue to share the school with everyone else’s children.
All the teenagers who have spent the first two years of secondary school making life in the classroom almost intolerable for others (who do want to learn) are now free to continue to poison the learning environment for the next two years.

Good Intentions always makes for bad law.

Common sense and logic, applied to simply consequences.

How sad that politicians just can't do that themselves, before the legislative session.

Don't forget the next logical step:

3. High school dropouts who are not eligible for licenses will drive anyway, illegally. Just like some people who get refused insurance (or are assigned to Facility Association but can't pay the enormous premiums). These laws ameliorate nothing and prevent nothing.
