I have grave concerns over the way Calgary police are handling the Red Mile situation.  So far, they have been lucky, however I cant help feeling the CPS are being a little too heavy handed this time around. When you start busting up to 500 otherwise law abiding citizens for jaywalking or honking their horns you are in danger of insisting a level resentment that could backfire on them.

I guess the trouble on the Red mile Saturday just goes to show that the police were needed in large numbers. As you said, part of the problem is that the Red mile simply can’t handle being hit with 18,000 fans every time the Flames win. Of course, if they play the way they did Monday, Wednesday down on the Mile is going to be very quite.

What are they trying to do?  Clean up the Red Mile?  I mean, if they want to do any sort of cleaning up, it's better that they go during the day - I mean, if they can make it past all the lung butter being spit on the sidewalks, the bums asking for change, kids shooting dope in the park, dog poo, garbage............

Don't forget all the "bad girls" who hang around after dark :)

Seriously though you make some good points. I work on the mile and find all the above a pain.

Ha ha! So True, but around the Red Mile, it's more of the "Bad Boys" hanging around......especially on 13th Ave.......

My 2 cents, take it for what talk is usually worth, especially 'round here...:

The Red Mile would be far less gratingly unpleasant if these mindless little corpoRATe Calgary Pod-People would take their laughably over-compensating, generic wannabe-tough-guy (it's always the men, notice; I'm happy to say that even here, most women seem to have a bit more sense than this),  **BLEEP**ing pathetic,  fake-ass bitch-boy garbage someplace else...!!!!

They're neither impressing nor yet fooling freakin' anyone, OK--anyone with a sense of identity and two functional brain-cells to rub together, that is. (Granted, exeedingly rare qualities in these parts, but--*cynical, blade-edged grin here*--hope springs eternal. Doesn't it.)

If somebody were to really call them on, and the fisticuffs came out for real, I'd guarantee ya, funsters, watch 'em fold up like the spineless, company-whipped,  little jellyfish they are. Sounds quite entertaining in a certain pitiful way, we must give this a try sometime!

If not for the CPD patrolling the Red Mile, you would end up with a situ' like Vancouver had in '94. Over 3 million dollars in damage due to vandalism. And the lawyers for the jerks made it sound like it was the COPS fault.

It wasn't. I was there.
