Canada's Justice System SUCKS!!!!!

I'm sorry - I know I probably sound like a child, but that's how I feel right about now. Criminals need to be punished for their crimes and in Canada you get to kill someone and then walk away - almost!

In 2005 my cousin Shawna was involved in a car accident. The guy that hit them had a suspended license, he stole a car and then proceeded to drive it (stoned and drunk) into my cousin and 3 of her friends. He killed one of her friends and injured everyone else in the vehicle. And a sentence of dangerous driving causing death and 3 counts of dangerous driving causing bodily harm got him 18 months in jail.

I am so angry!!! How is that fair? And after all is said and done, this guy's girlfriend turns around and threatens my cousin with her life. Are you kidding me? This is our justice system - doesn't that just make you proud?

Do NOT get me started... It is a sad state of affairs when a person trained in the legal system has no faith in the system... Hugs Mona.
