grass deal... if you can get it.
A man who murdered his best friend while serving a conditional sentence for a robbery bragged to police that he was "21-1 in court" because of the native diversion program, a judge heard yesterday.Hang on... I thought justice was supposed to be blind... not stupid.
In the past five years, Beausoleil had 10 charges, one for a weapons offence, diverted because of his native ancestry, said his lawyer Anthony DeMarco.Now, if this guy hadn't been able to use his perpetual aboriginal "get out of jail free" card... maybe, just maybe... he wouldn't have gotten around to murdering his best friend.
Under the native diversion program, the accused acknowledges responsibility for his actions, but doesn't plead guilty and no criminal conviction is registered.
That, of course, is beside the point...
Which actually is... how about we just go back to "One People... One Law"?
LAST WORD: Funny... no diversion here
"There's no problem with that, no way, there never was. Nobody ever thought of him as actually a criminal or anything," Woodrow said. "He's just your everyday person-next-door type and that's always stood. He still will be. That hasn't changed. He doesn't deserve to be in there, no way."Because, you know, he might have run around killing everybody's kids.
