Strange type of Justice

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A strange type of justice was reported in the National Post on Saturday.

A bizarre decision by a jury in Montreal convicted a woman of two counts of criminal negligence causing death and two counts of dangerous driving causing death.

The woman stopped on the highway to help 2 ducklings on the side of the road. Now she could be facing a lengthy prison sentence.

A motor cyclist ran into the back of her parked vehicle killing himself and his passenger, his 16-year-old daughter.

It was estimated that the motor cycle had been travelling at between 113 and 129 kilometres an hour at the moment of impact. Over the speed limit and certainly a contributing factor in the accident.

This case is bizarre for several reasons.

There was clearly no criminal intent involved, carelessness, negligence, irresponsibility, poor judgement and skewed priorities, maybe.

She was neither behind the wheel nor in the vehicle when the accident occurred, how can she possibly be convicted of any driving charge other than illegal parking or stopping on a highway?

If in fact that is always an offence. Vehicles do break down and stop of their own accord in the most inconvenient places.

The motor cyclist was travelling above the speed limit, a contributing factor in the accident.

In every country in which I have lived or driven and in many cases I have read about in Canada, the vehicle which runs into the rear of another is always the guilty party unless either a third vehicle or major mechanical failure caused the leading vehicle to stop without warning.

The prosecutors desperate attempt to obtain a jail sentence and remark that “a clear message is sent to society that we don’t stop for animals on the highway” smacks of a more vindictive and strange justice system than is found in many third world countries.

It is a source of absolute incredulity to me that the Canadian justice system refuses to accept that accidents do happen, its determination to find someone guilty of the most serious offence it can in every incident and to impose draconian punishments for incidents that would not be considered offences in many other countries.

Adding to the incredulity is the reluctance of the authorities to take action and use the necessary force against certain groups of protesters, aboriginal people blocking roads and rioting students destroying property being two examples. Compared to its heavy-handed treatment of others. Particularly older, white, male, licensed gun and property owners.

A few years ago, a major oil company in Alberta was fined a million dollars because 100 ducks drowned in a tailing pond. That makes an Albertan duck worth $10 000, but trying to save a duck in Quebec results in a criminal conviction and a possible jail sentence.

Something is wrong with this picture.

The following story was recently sent to me as an email, I understand it is being circulated widely.

The email contained a photograph of Antonio West (Santiago), I have not included that photo as I am unsure of its copyright restrictions – unlike many others, I do respect the property rights – including intellectual, of others.

Before including the story in this post, I checked the reports from reputable news sources and it does appear accurate, two black teenagers are awaiting trial for the murder of baby Antonio and the shooting of his mother.

Some media channels are raising as a red flag the allegations that both Antonio’s mother and father were found to have gun shot residue on them. As his mother had been shot herself, that would be understandable. There are possible explanations for residue found on the father but the police are not treating the parents as suspects in the shooting.

The media are also pointing out that the father, Luis Santiago  has been arrested for stalking the mother.

Here is the email with my comments at the end:

——————————————

Hello. Don’t recognize me?

That’s OK; I understand.

My name was Antonio West.

I was the 13-month old child who was shot in the face at point-blank range by two black teens, who were attempting to rob my mother, who was also shot earlier this year.

I think my murder and my mommy’s wounding made the news for maybe a day, and then disappeared.

A Grand Jury of my mommy’s peers from Brunswick, Georgia ruled the black teens who murdered me will not face the death penalty… too bad it was me who got the death sentence from my killers instead, because Mommy didn’t have the money they demanded.

See, my family made the mistake of being white in a 73% non-white neighborhood, but my murder wasn’t ruled a ‘hate crime’.

Oh, and President Obama didn’’t take a single moment to acknowledge my murder.

He couldn’t have any children who could possibly look like me – so why should he care?

I’’m one of the youngest murder victims in our great Nation’s history, but the media didn’’t care to cover the story of my being killed in cold blood.

There isn’t a white equivalent of Al Sharpton, because if there was he would be branded a ‘racist’.

So no one’s rushing to Brunswick, Georgia to demonstrate and demand ‘justice’ for me.

There’s no ‘White Panther’ party, either, to put a bounty on the lives of the two black teens who murdered me.

I have no voice, I have no representation, and unlike those who shot me in the face while I sat innocently in my stroller – I no longer have my life.

Isn’t this a great country?

So while you’re out seeking ‘justice for Trayvon’, please remember to seek ‘justice’ for me.

Tell your friends about me, tell you families, get tee-shirts with my face on them, and make the world pay attention, just like you did for Trayvon.

I won’t hold my breath.

I don’t have to anymore.

———————————

The comparison with the media’s treatment of the George Zimmerman / Trayvon Martin provides a text-book example of liberal hypocrisy, political correctness and media bias.
In this case, very little media coverage, no crucifixion of the shooters in social media, no portrayal of the victim or his family as saints, no clamours for federal intervention and no comment by the president.

Quite the opposite, attempts to show the victim’s family in an unsavoury light and almost no digging into the alleged murderers backgrounds.

George Zimmerman was doing a job he volunteered for, he believed he acted in accordance with the law and in self-defence.

Little Antonio’s mother was minding her own business and was attacked by criminals. There is absolutely no way for her attackers to claim they were acting in accordance with any law or in self-defence.

Liberal hypocrisy certainly knows no bounds. Enough to make you sick and certainly fear for the future of not just America, but all of the Western World.

Our biggest threat is not Al Qaeda, suicide bombers, home-grown or foreign terrorists, it is from the liberal left and their determination to emasculate, and disarm the population, smother all independent thought and impose nanny state control.

To preserve our communities and our countries, to ensure that our children and grandchildren have the opportunity to live in stable societies where freedom is still cherished, we need to use our powers of discernment and stand up to this wave of propaganda.
