Terrorist or not criminally responsible?

How come when a wacko radical religious extremist beheads an innocent human being and then displays it to the world on line, we call him a terrorist?

Yet when a Canadian does the same thing we call him not criminally responsible for the death, due to mental illness. 

Don’t you have to be insane to behead anyone, despite your religious beliefs?

Is it not safe to say that ISIS and those who participate in their barbaric rituals are insane?

Why is it because someone hides behind their religion are they not judged by the same standards as those in the criminal justice system here?

Why are those who don’t have a religion to hide behind declared not mentally fit to stand trial?

I can think of two examples off the top of my head, no pun intended.

Luka Magnotta who is currently on trial for the dismemberment of Jun Lin.

And Vince Li, the guy who beheaded a young man aboard a Grey Hound Bus, who is now out on day passes.

I guess the severity of the crime depends on who you are and what your beliefs are, not what you’ve done.

Are you currently looking for consensual sex?

Are you currently looking for consensual sex?  There’s an app for that!

Good2Go sells itself as an app to help prevent or reduce sexual abuse.

They say:

"Before asking a girl to come back to his room, a guy would launch the app, which asks the question "Are you Good2Go?" and hand his phone to the girl.

She may indicate yes or no, but if she is interested and says yes, she will be asked about her level of sobriety.

If she answers "Sober," "Mildly Intoxicated," or "Intoxicated but Good2Go" (anything other than "Pretty Wasted"), she will be asked to enter her phone number and the app will verify her identity.

This process can bring clarity to the situation and help reduce the possibility of miscommunication.

If a man does not receive a positive response, he should not start an encounter."

IF a man, or woman, needs an app to discuss sex, maybe you’re not ready for sex.

A better idea may be to use that phone to search out some porn, so you can avoid a ‘human’ connection.

LRT must connect to James St. N. GO hub

Oct 1, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

You have heard me rant several times that an LRT that is not connected to a greater transit hub like all day GO, it is not modern transit.

If you have to run to catch a connecting bus it is not modern transit.

Yesterday, Ontario’s Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca explained the new multi service use of Union Station in Toronto.

Upon completion, customers will have access to intercity bus services, GO Transit, Via Rail, TTC, and the Pearson airport express train, in one central location.

“I think it’s primarily capacity, along with the fact that we want to build that seamless one-stop shop opportunity, both from the perspective of economic development from the city, and for the region, but also making the customer experience better for commuters themselves,” said the Transportation Minister.

This is what the guy who is going to pay for Hamilton’s transit upgrades wants to see.

Further proof if Hamilton wants to do LRT right,,, it has to switch tracks.

Hong Kong umbrella = peace

Sep 30, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Unexpectedly, the umbrella has become a symbol for peace and democracy in Hong Kong.

The umbrellas are used to protect the demonstrators from the steady stream of pepper spray being fired at them from riot police.

If you’ve ever used a can of Raid on a wasp nest you know what I’m speaking of.

Hong Kong has erupted because China is picking who they can vote for.  Hong Kong wants open and free elections.

The umbrella has not only been a solid piece of protective gear everyone has access to, but the images of a society up against a well-fortified strike force using only their umbrellas, is truly symbolic of the struggle.

Instead of seeing a demonstration rife with hooligans and two conflicting sides in a street fight.

WE see a one sided battle against those armed only with their umbrellas and hands in the air in peace.

China may be winning with force in the streets of Hong Kong, but they won’t win in the world of public opinion, not with those pictures.

In this case, the umbrella could be as symbolic as the image of the lone protester standing in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square was, years ago.

Do I have to wear pants???

Sep 28, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Forget the depressing international news of late.

For a lot of Hamiltonians over the weekend the most pressing debate was, “Do I have to wear pants or not?”

Especially, if like me, you have kids in hockey.

Only in Canada do you see people this time of year in a rink wearing shorts, flip flops and a pull over.

All while rubbing a frosted pane of glass to see the summer weather outside.

From tying skates to flipping steaks.

From moulding mouth guards to mowing lawn.

From taping sticks to teeing off.

It’s a very confusing time of year.

I swear I also saw a mosquito!

I don’t know whether to hop the neighbour’s fence for a swim in their pool or test out the snow blower!

But I guess it’s a good problem to have….

I’m Scott Thompson.

Nice w/e

Sep 26, 2014 5:00 AM

It is going to be a phenomenal weekend in the Hammer weather wise.

With the humidity, Hamilton will feel like 28 this weekend under sunny skies, both days.

When was the last time you felts those temps, previous years not included?

You could count the number of days over 30 degrees this year on one hand.

Way down from the norm and what is considered the average Ontario summer.

Some say the past summer was just fine and no need to have your rear end sticking to the fine Corinthian leather just to declare a great season.

But we must remember, it’s not the summer of 2014 anymore, its fall.

Shorter days and cooler nights are proving that.

For me, it just solidifies my resolve to not wear pants until Thanksgiving.

By the way, today marks 90 days until Boxing Day.  Sorry.

And no bugs!

Can we have some honesty in Mayoral race?

Sep 25, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

The race for Mayor in this city got a bit uglier yesterday on The Scott Thompson Show!

It started when Brad Clark said he obtained data through the Freedom of Information Act (F.O.I.) saying that Fred Eisenberger, while as Mayor, withheld information from council on the LRT file.

That information favoured BRT over LRT in Hamilton.

Fred Eisenberger said Clark was misleading and everything is on the table.

HE added he wasn’t sure where Clark was getting his information as the FOI had not been released yet.

Then Mayor Bob Bratina called me and said he gave the information to Clark.

He said he found the material while cleaning his desk.

One listener questioned why Bratina would get involved in a mayoral race he isn’t in.

McHattie followed the Mayor and added we can’t do anything until we find out what the province will spend.

And they wonder why voter turnout is low?

Honesty anyone?

In the end they were all there, stadium and now early LRT discussions.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Naked pics are YOUR responsibility

Sep 24, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

Oh no!  Another Hollywood celeb is squawking about their porno pictures ending up on a public website.

This time it is Emma Watson after her speech on gender equality and rights at the United Nations.

Feminists are up in arms saying she shouldn’t be punished or embarrassed for sharing her views.

What is happening here is wrong, but it has nothing to do with feminism.

These pictures are posted for one reason and one reason only, to drive people to that website.

It has nothing to do with feminism or any other view.  They’re not that deep.

At the end of the day if a big Hollywood starlet (or anyone else) is stupid enough to take naked pictures of themselves, chances are they are not smart enough to keep them secure.

What have learned here today kids?

Don’t take pictures of stuff you don’t want anyone else to see.

There is no such word as ‘secure’ in today’s world.

It’s about your responsibility, not someone else’s.

I’m Scott Thompson.

Have you ever wanted a third breast?

Sep 23, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

 

Do you your sexual fantasies ever involve a woman with three breasts?

Me neither.  That may help you understand why 21 year old Jasmine Tridevil added a third to her collection.

I’m still waiting for the email that says the story is a hoax but a quick search of the internet proves she’s not the only one.

The 21-year-old saved up for two years so she could have the surgery and is also paying for a film crew to follow her around.

She got the surgery to be more ‘unattractive’ to men, she’s done with dating, and to get a reality show. 

“My whole dream is to get this show on MTV,” she said.

“I’m dumping every penny I have into this. If this doesn’t work, I’m through.”

Oh don’t be so hard on yourself, I’m sure strip joints are interested, if it’s too hard core for the circus next to the dog faced boy.

Since we’re adding on new body parts, perhaps she should get another head sewn on because clearly the one she has isn’t thinking straight.

I’m Scott Thompson.

'Doesn’t the President know he is supposed to lock his doors?'

Sep 22, 2014 5:00 AM
Scott Thompson

The Associated Press reported over the weekend:

The head of the U.S. Secret Service has ordered stepped-up security outside the White House after a man who jumped the fence made it all the way inside before being apprehended.

The Secret Service has ordered a comprehensive review of the incident, saying it is unacceptable that the suspect made it so far before being arrested.

You'd think technology would be in place sounding an alarm as soon as anyone scaled the fence, let alone make the several hundred metre run across the front lawn.

But to actually make it inside, yes the front door was unlocked!

The intruder was arrested by the guard on the other side of the door.  The Obama's were not home at the time.

But what if the uninvited guest had a bomb strapped to him?

The first words out of my kids mouths were, 'doesn’t the President know he is supposed to lock his doors?'

Nuff said!

I'm Scott Thompson.
