Law and Disorder - Our Smug supporters of In-Justice

I just came across this piece of news from Canada's COU....

Apparently a young college hockey player from Vermont named Michael Serba was in Toronto for the US Thanksgiving weekend. Friday night he went to a bar where he was attacked on leaving.
It seems that a local POS named Nicholas Crowdis used a brick to cave in young Michael's head which put him in the hospital on life support until Tuesday when he expired from the head injuries.

Police say the attempted murder charge against the 22-year-old Crowdis of Toronto is expected to be upgraded at his next court appearance Dec. 4.

Now this is just one incident in what seems to be an unending story of crass violence that occurs in our metropolitan centres. Nothing out of the ordinary in the big picture of modern urban life. Although I'm sure that there are many smugly secure Torontonians who have yet to experience an unprovoked violent incident I also know that there are good people in the city who are aghast at these events. "So what?", you may ask.

Well, here's the thing.....some of those good people are still firmly convinced that our justice system and its lenient dealing with even violent crime have no bearing on whether these kinds of incidents happen. And apparently as numerous polls have told us, a Majority of the citizens there deem such things as stricter sentencing inappropriate and unnecessary.

I tend to think that these are the same bunch who smugly assert that the gun registry is a success and a valuable tool in crime prevention. I also believe that this group are probably the strongest opponents of a death penalty. Of course the argument tends to be that reformation is always the best option.

The trouble is that Reformation has never been shown to be achievable when dealing with violent criminals.
Someone who uses a brick or a bat or whatever implement comes to hand in an altercation is NOT going to be reformed under any circumstances. They will repeat the same behaviour again if they are put in a similar situation and that is Unacceptable.
Unless you are going to endorse or rather employ lobotomization or chemical personality modification.....long term incarceration or execution are the ONLY methods that will ensure that cowardly, violent pieces of shit will be kept in check.

Unfortunately, we have the justice system that we have and it is likely that even with a murder conviction Nicky Crowdis will be in jail for less than five years.

Do you call that justice?

I don't!

Thanks....It's nothing new that some people do not accept the logic of the self proclaimed progressives in our society.

I hope to spread the word.

I just attended the funeral of Michael Serba and the words you wrote could not be more true. This was a horific day that will never be forgotten. There were many hockey players, grown men and countless others sobbing at the loss of such an amazing person. This senseless act has affected the lives of thousands.

Michael's 25 year olds life was viciously taken by a person with a criminal history and who was known to police in the area. But hey, lets give him a chance to get better. Apparently this suspect just got out of jail and was on parole. Five to ten years is all he'll get. Justice? Where? How? Is that what we value someones life at. We care more about the offender than the victim.

What's next, maybe one life is not enough for him. Perhaps next he'll look for a double or triple homicide. The grieving of the family and friends and the wounds inflicted on us all probably won't even be healed before this piece of sh*t (excuse my language) is back on the street.

The choice we have- to not let this happen, to protest, stand up and get things changed. This over sympathetic justice system is making it more unsafe for the good people in the country and has the scum, criminals and defense lawyers who represent them laughing.

If there are enough people who stand up than something can get done. Otherwise soon it won't be safe to walk the street of Yorkville or who knows where else.

Thanks for contributing to this commentary.
I feel that I am only stating the obvious.

Perhaps one of us should provide the local MLA's and MP's with the link to this post....your own contribution would be most persuasive as these people contemplate their stance on criminal legislation.
