Broken Justice

Can anyone make a plausible excuse for why this guy was approved for parole? Because I frankly can't think of one. Maybe the parole board was figuring that the next woman he raped and likely killed would probably only be an American anyway. Frankly, if a guy ever qualified for a bullet behind the ear, this is that guy.

When violent rapist William Shrubsall received a rare indeterminate prison sentence in 2001, a Nova Scotia judge ruled that if he ever regained his freedom, the likely result would be more dead, injured and psychologically scarred women.

There was no “realistic prospect of controlling the threat of dangerousness” from his re-entry into society, reads the ruling.

Only 18 years later, despite warnings from his victims, his prosecutor and even the Correctional Service of Canada, Shrubsall has been granted full parole and is to be deported to the United States. Given that his prison term could be as short as 2 and a third years, he could conceivably be free before his 50th birthday.

How deadly is the fentanyl epidemic? Not very. At least, not according to a BC judge who appeared to be eager, if not desperate to find a reason to acquit a man caught with 27,000 fentanyl pills. According to the judge, the police dog's behaviour that showed there were drugs in the car might have been just 'ambiguous'. So he set free the drug dealer with a smile and a pat on the head.

Another idiot who got on the bench in BC through knowing the right people has ruled a man is guilty of using his cell phone while driving even though it had a dead, battery and was in the glove compartment of his car. I swear we need IQ tests for judges in this country.
