Nip dangerous seniors’ activity in the bud

To the editor:

It is comforting to read that our local RCMP is finally taking a strong stand against dangerous senior citizens.

Let’s not hear any whining about Tasers, it is probably the safest way to subdue these vicious old fogies. Otherwise, what chance would a couple of beefy young coppers stand against some wily old curmudgeon? You never know what nasty trick they could come up with. So what if a few don’t survive the experience.

Our fine city is overrun with hoards of old people, and the problem is only going to get worse unless we nip this problem in the bud. Groups of two, three or more can be seen cruising the downtown and the malls with their canes and walkers, obviously looking for trouble and scaring decent folks out of their wits. Every morning restaurants and coffee shops are full of them planning their next move.

The cops have my vote. Taser them all.

Just not me.
