Re: July 19 article, “Driver banned for life.”
I have to wonder if both the judge and Crown Counsel have FASD or what pressure or gifts were applied to reach that judgment.
First off, why was a pediatrician used as a specialist and not a psychiatrist? Even without that, the diagnosis of him supposedly not knowing the differences and his past driving history should have told any sane and uninfluenced person that the sentencing recommendation was a joke, as he’d already proven that he’ll continue to drive even with the ban in place.
What’s our criminal justice system going to do the next time he kills someone – send him on a taxpayer-paid Caribbean vacation, since obviously he is above justice?
Maybe someone should pressure the MPs for legislation making judges and Crown counsels liable to lawsuits in the cases where people are killed or injured and where there is obviously a miscarriage of justice.
It seems lately especially in the Abbotsford area that human lives don’t rate the value of even a simple burglary charge sentence.
