Honorable RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson

As a great teacher would talk to the students, our Honorable RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson talks to the people of Canada through the media to teach us the most valuable life’s lessons that he has learnt during his policing career. In an interview with the media he told a journalist that when he was in Vancouver, he used to take his children through the Downtown Eastside – to show them what life as an addict was like.

“The people that use drugs are not the people we got to be bothering, right? We’ve got to be sort of helping them. Some of the best people I’ve ever run across in my policing experience: heroin addicts,” Paulson says.

“They’re sick. And you know they do crime, it’s sort of subsidiary, that if they’re doing crime it’s because they need to get heroin. And so they’re doing all sorts of property crime. But when you actually sit down and talk to heroin addicts, they’re really nice people.”

What a valuable life lesson our Teacher Honorable RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson teaches us here. We must be kind to people who are already suffering and do not ignore them or look down on them as they could be some of the  best people in our society who have become victims of addiction.

My lifelong mission in life is to offer my support for the police officers who need to be supported and protected by general public like us. My inspiration to do this comes from my personal experiences of some of the greatest police officers whom I have witnessed do great deeds for the good of humanity.
