My crush is my boyfriend of five years! He helped me get through high school, and he's my guardian angel. He's 6 4 and has huge brown eyes with dark dark hair and big bushy eyebrows, sometimes he's got a beard but mostly he's clean shaven, he wears glasses and has the dorkiest smile. He's the lenkyiest guy and I'm kind of short and chubby so we look cute together. He's never cheated on me and he never talks about other girls. We are madly in love and I've never wanted to marry someone so bad!!!

"Samantha...." Wolf said, putting an arm around her, "How're you?"

Samantha sensed a familiar person but only figured out it was Wolf when he spoke. The hybrid stepped away so his arm wasn’t around her. She was usually quite uncomfortable with close contact like that. 

“Hey Wolf.” She said, turning to look at him. One of her eyes was a bright purple; the other being a light blue. “I guess I’m okay. I’m quite worried about my team right now. And my guardian is no where to be found. This month has just been too crazy.”

Guys what if instead of having a guardian angel, you a had guardian fictional character? Like they could be any character that has helped you get through a hard time, has made you realize something important about yourself, who you aspire to be like when things get tough, and/or is just someone you think you’d get along really well with. Consider this for a moment.

CCTV deterrence and the London riots #5yrsago

My latest Guardian column, “Why CCTV has failed to deter criminals,” looks at the London riots and the way that rioters were willing to commit their crimes in full view of CCTV cameras, and what that says about CCTVs as deterrence. I think that we need to draw a distinction between having cameras on all the time in case someone commits a crime, and using cameras at the time that crimes are being committed – for example, hooking up a CCTV to a glass-break sensor (possibly configured so the CCTV buffers and discards video continuously, but only saves the few seconds before the breakage).

There’s a tiny one-way street on the way to my daughter’s daycare that parallels an often crowded main road, and from time to time, local drivers will get the idea of using it as a high-speed shortcut. There are two schools in this street, and a lot of bicycle traffic, and I’ve lost track of the number of times that I’ve seen near accidents as impatient drivers roared down the street.

But the local council haven’t installed a CCTV camera there full time. Instead, when the problem flares up, they stick one of those creepy CCTV cars at the top of the street and hand out gigantic speeding tickets for a day or two, until everyone gets the message and the street falls quiet again. That is, they locate a camera where there is a problem, use it until the problem is over, and relocate it. They don’t watch everyone all the time in case someone does the wrong thing.

After all, that’s how we were sold on CCTV – not mere forensics after the fact, but deterrence. And although study after study has concluded that CCTVs don’t deter most crime (a famous San Francisco study showed that, at best, street crime shifted a few metres down the pavement when the CCTV went up), we’ve been told for years that we must all submit to being photographed all the time because it would keep the people around us from beating us, robbing us, burning our buildings and burglarising our homes.

A year before the Vancouver Winter Olympics, a reporter from a one of the local papers called me to ask whether I thought an aggressive plan to use CCTVs in the Gastown neighbourhood would help pacify the notorious high-crime heroin district. I said that the deterrence theory of CCTV relied on the idea that the deterred were making smart choices about their futures and would avoid crime if the consequences might catch up with them.

Then I recounted my last trip through Gastown, where the pavements were thronged with groaning and unconscious emaciated addicts, filthy and covered in weeping sores, and asked if those people could be reasonably characterised as “making smart choices about their future.”

Do most people have guardian spirits/angels?

Yes, I believe everyone has at least one guardian spirit! In all my spiritual work, before and during my human life, I’ve never heard of someone without a guardian. Not everyone has a guardian angel, of course, since any spiritual “species” can be a guardian, but many do have angels too. :)

My buddy has been one of the best guardians ever and bought me the destiny collection on ps4! I’ll finally be able to join any Sony guardians out there following me!
