I replied to your online question about Brent Parent’s road rage trial and the suitability of his five-and-a-half-year prison sentence.
My answer was no, I do not think that his sentence was suitable for the crime concerned, and this seemed to be the majority vote.
I am sickened by the Canadian justice system and its “tickle my butt” penalties.
I have been a proud Canadian for 33 years, although I was born in Europe.
Why don’t we have the intestinal fortitude to hand out punishments that fit the crime as they do south of the 49th Parallel?
This man is someone who should be taught to realize that anger is not a solution to his day-to-day issues and consequentially should pay a harsh price for his actions.
The severity of his punishment should match the severity of his actions. This would, in some way, offer some sense of closure in this tragic incidient.
This man should have been sentenced to 15 years with no chance of parole for 10.
