A look at Crime Prevention in North Bay.

If you live in North Bay & Struggle. I hope this is an option that has been made readily available to you.

“Crime, is it is nuisance to society & a black-white way of reviewing people’s capacity for goodness? Or is a crime a mechanism used by the lower class as a method of survival.” Ashton Deroy

Over the weekend I placed myself in North Bay to recover from flu for which I overstressed. It is here where I am staying with 2 individuals. One who is diagnosed with PTSD one of the conditions I have. As well as another individual with autism a condition I also share. In order to protect their identities, their names will be omitted from this article.  My trip to get here was over 10 hours including my commute into downtown Toronto. Since arriving I have had traveling sickness & 2 major anxiety attacks.

It was here I learned about the policing environment executed in North Bay. Sure on the surface, it looks like a town all nice & cutely put together. Decorated with Private businesses & plenty of middle class to go around. It is the kind of place where someone can get drunk in their buddy’s shed. However, behind that quietness, there is a silent sadness occurring. 

People with mental disorders in this town seem to shut out the world. At 7/23/2018 I am in a home with the aforementioned amazing hosts & because of the environment with frequent rainfall & social class policing my hosts are often locked inside. Where are their supports? This is going to have to be a question I answer in this journal. 

What is Crime Prevention, according to Wikipedia refer to the quote below:

Wiki Define crime prevention

This article discusses the ugliness is racial profiling that exists in an overactive policing system related to New York. City.  https://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestoryamericas/2012/06/201261952286250.html

How does this relate to North Bay?

New York is 10 hours away from North Bay.

About a 3-hour drive from Toronto. 

North Bay to Ottawa.png

Plus 22 hours from Ottawa. 

These three communities probably have the biggest influence on the structure created for North Bay society. I said earlier that this was largely a private community. Tons of small businesses, churches & tourism spots. 

How does the policing look? 

It is 8:00am/800. I am going to walk around to see if I can see a patrol car watching things. I want to mention that I believe even if they used a complaint based policing system in this town. The enforcement may still be executed much too swiftly. As commonly believed political theory states that Conservatism of a private economy much resembles a cleaner but still a devastating organizational fascism.

The police do not know me in this town. So if one was to profile me I am going to look disabled, in sweatpants & a baggy misfitting t-shirt. If possible I would love the chance to talk to a police officer about this crime prevention service. I will let you know how it goes. 

Private communities AKA “outside my door I am blind.”

I am from a small town called Brighton Ontario. This above quote is the unfortunate truth I know about private communities.

Even from my time growing up in rural Canada. There was no teaching my community fast enough about the changed landscape of gay rights, religious freedoms & non-conforming gender individuals. The community was too busy devouring anyone who seemed different.

My new friend out patrolling at 800/8:00am. In case you missed it, I tried to get myself profiled in raggedy clothes so I could ask them about their crime prevention service. What I think I did wrong & what I can’t duplicate? Police have never agitated me so I don’t initiate hostility with them like my friends who claim,”We get pulled over all the time.” I also had brushed hair. A guy with brushed hair in sweatpants with big arms is just a fitness freak. When the hair is unruly that is when you get profiled as a lower class citizen.

My experience with police is more helpful than most. Police have been used to calm me and intervene in behaviors where I was a danger to myself as a young person with autism. This is one thing the Quinte West OPP do really well. I can remember when I was 14 the police have to get involved with stopping my mom’s intoxicated driving boyfriend. Back then it was one of the best things that could have possibly happened to our family.

Unfortunately, our mom stuck with him through his stupidities & he continues to abuse as well as scare me until I moved out at 14. That was the first time I was kicked out!

Is crime about survival? 

“You won’t let me have the resources I need, so I find them.” I think that is what my friends would say if they were as articulate as me. You forget with the disability comes an innate barrier. You can’t access employment because so much of your life is out of control, you can’t access community resources because of they all close early, but you can access a hospital. Which is ironic since many of us in and around Toronto end up there after pushing our mental buttons down too hard.

A little hint, “Crime is about survival.”

Stories I can recall thus far.

  1. They found money around a gas station that accepted Point of Sale transaction at the pump. Meaning money commonly falls on the ground at these locations.
  2. They frauded a credit card as a means of survival.
  3. They were homeless in Toronto & traveled to North Bay by public & private transit.
  4. They as well as I can recall sleeping outside.

Questions I still have. 

  1. Are the police using some form of intimidation to scare minority criminals? 
  2. Is Social stigma in association with crime a barrier here?
  3. How do I apply what I have learned & my experiences to heal my own brain?
  4. Will my new friends find happiness together? Or will they find isolation? They deserve to be as happy as anyone else. hearts.png

Service review for Chiefly.

Queer Brand experience Logo.png

Ashton Deroy Writes: I am actually sorry this has to go up at all. “LOL JK I love these catty service reviews!”  

If you don’t know and you are wondering. “What is the Queer Brand Experience?” Relax, it is mostly a gay guy behind his keyboard shit talking a ton of brands on the internet & messing with people. 

“I am still concerned”, You might say out of stress. Listen I shut this down over the advice from the same guy who told me I shouldn’t start my own business, that people paying for my service was disturbing, & that I didn’t have enough skill. 

To him I say, “Search my name b*****!” I show up, do you? I don’t care. 

Review is for

  1. Cheefly, A failed Marijuana interest blog 
  2. Buyer: Ashton Deroy, Store manager of Bongs-R-Us
  3. Cost: $27 CAD 

Fiverr logo.png

The medium of purchase: https://www.fiverr.com/localseodude

Cheefly.png

So maybe this bad review is partially my fault. I know what I expected from an internet ad vendor, but I definitely didn’t get what I wanted from Cheefly. 

Here is the summarized experience: 

  1. Purchasing the ad buy & asking for help with content production, No content suggestions were made. LocalSEODude does not care about this forum, it has no identity he just wants you to turn in content like a library book.
  2. No suggestions were made for edit, internet ad sales are kind of automated now. So people who have never done it forget that this is a part of the package. 
  3. He forgot to Backlink, he either forgot to upsell me additionally for the backlink or the idiot just forgot! “I am sorry are you not Local SEO dude?” 
  4. No Traffic! , If I had looked at this forum I would see it was abandoned because the owner does not care. 

What I did wrong? I am pretty eager to get my team paid. So on Fiverr admittedly I didn’t check on his work before approving payment. I should have made him revise the pitch. Then sadly Fiverr doesn’t let you rate them during the service part of the purchase. From there I had to speak up. 

The good part from this? Queer Brand Experience made a guest appearance on the Ashton Deroy web page 🙂

Hey, so you’ve connected to my webspace because there is a lot to see. I am an ex-ad salesperson with an adventurous entrepreneur’s spirit & a tech support person’s continuing curiosity. I often get asked, how did you begin your journey as a designer? Believe it or not, I am not going to talk about college here. I actually used to organize the bulletin boards of promotional music for Riverside Music in 2013-2014. 

Riverside music.jpg

It was actually here when I was a punk kid where my manager told me she thought I had the spirit of an artist. Of course, I disregarded it, pretended it was just something older people said to teenagers. Was she ever right though? Her name was Maggie and she gave me the best co-op experience I’ve ever had high school or college. 

When we were struggling with our home lives in 2013, Maggie would invite us to after-school events at the Riverside Music. So I and my brother could escape to the sound of music and remember for a minute, we are just teenagers. The weight of the world does not need to be on our shoulders. Amongst the artists/musicians & the counterculture youth groups was always where my brother & I felt most at home. As two gay youth in the small town of Quinte West.

If no one else is buying it, are you buying in to your brand?

If you won't buy it, who will.png

You started a Shopify store and for some reason thought a Facebook ad campaign and Shopify monthly subscription would be enough to do the trick to start having hot sales. Well you were wrong… No surprise there. Listen the Shopify game is not that different from the Multi-Level marketing game. The truth is if you don’t have a minimum monthly spend for your business. You will not have a business. 

“The days of Setup, leave it, and input sales are over!” – Ashton Deroy 

Bubble bursting time, You are not unique just for having a store on the web. You are unique if you deliver good customer service, engage with your audience and buy your own products. When you sit there though and you have a bunch of digital images on a screen. You are no different than the supplier. News Flash, they can find your supplier to! So why use you?

  • You use your own products to – They amuse you, they are useful or they just make sense.
  • You post trial testimonies – It wasn’t enough to just set up a catalog. You get a potential buyer and got them to try products you offer. 
  • You talk about your business all the time – It should not be lost on you that this is a constant communication process. 

Advice: You should be trying to collect at least 10 units of what you sell a month to try to sell via personal sale. 

 

Who cares.png
This brand sells cheap looking products, random products and has made no effort to make me care. As a result Just Yes Store is running ads and not generating sales. 

 

The above store has no blog, no testimonies and random product lines. It is clear from looking at it that this shop is someone’s hobby opposed to someone’s actual business or personal sales project. If you don’t care why should I care? I will never buy from this brand, I do not know how the products work, I do not know the owner’s face and he has put no thought in to who exactly he is selling to. It is a garbage shop to me now. 

It is estimated that Facebook content creates about 500 terabytes of data a day in new content. That is a lot of noise to try and beat. If you are pushing a pathetic line of products that you never even bought in to yourself. Your brand will be buried and you will deserve it for not trying. 

Swan Whispers Asmr new logo

Swan Whispers asmr Logo .png

Ashton Deroy writes: We got the new logo up for the Swan Whispers ASMR website Friday. We are still awaiting some of her new artwork and we will be working to build a product line for the media. My prediction for this media is that our Key Performance indications will have a much stronger year than posted previously by the ItsDianaSkye page in 2015. 

I think through Swan Whispers ASMR We will generate a larger audience, more advertising revenue and more integration to Ashton Deroy’s main marketing messages. We have a little over 500 subscribers on the YouTube channel & 60 readers via WordPress. We definitely think we can strengthen those numbers. 

Some key things to remember. It is a bot world, we still continue to generate our numbers organically. We are more focused on conversations than numbers regardless of KPI goals. Lastly we balance out the media channel management with jobs or other day to day tasks.
