Seven people have been arrested after an Ottawa police operation that netted cash and $3,000 in prescription drugs.
The street crime unit, with the help of central neighbourhood officers, arrested the people at the Catherine St. bus station, and along Bank St., on Wednesday.
Officers seized prescription narcotics including Fentanyl patches, Morphine, Oxycodone and Dilaudid.
Small amounts of crack and marijuana were also seized, as well as $300 in cash.

The crew from PGFD Truck 831 eneded up with something that wasn’t on their grocery list when they made a stop for food Wednesday at a store in Calverton, Maryland.

It ended with a tasing.
According to PGFD, the person shouted threats and performed lewd acts to himself while climbing on the ladder bed. The man was taken to an area hospital after he [...]

Leaked video. Don’t have the details and may never have them because of the government policy of hiding this kind of events.
Nevertheless, our recognition to the Mexican soldiers.

President Enrique Pena Nieto’s bid to reform tax and energy laws is directing investors’ attention toward Mexico’s economic prospects and away from its six-year drug war.
The cost to protect $10 million of Mexican debt against losses for five years using credit-default swaps fell to 0.84 percent, or $84,000 annually, on April 11. That’s the lowest in five years and compares with a price of $490,000 on March 2, 2009, when the drug violence intensified. Mexican credit-default swaps are now 0.28 percentage point cheaper than contracts protecting debt from [...]

Though the number of Mexicans obtaining political asylum still pales compared to, say, Chinese, it has grown in the last several years.
In 2012, nearly 130 Mexicans won political asylum – seemingly a small amount, but actually about three times the number who did just six years earlier, according to the Miami Herald.
An example of the type of person who is [...]
