Coming soon...

...to a neighbourhood near you...

Morton, now 20, was the first teen in Canada to be convicted for first-degree murder under the Youth Criminal Justice Act. On April 1, 2003, at the age of 14, Morton strangled schoolmate Eric Levack, also 14, near their Brampton school .

Morton was diagnosed as having homicidal fantasies and told psychologists that killing Levack gave him the same thrill as opening Christmas presents and he thought of pursuing mass murders now that he knows how to kill.

Morton had led Levack into a wooded area near Heart Lake Secondary School in Brampton where he strangled the teen with his belt and coolly walked back to art class afterwards to brag to classmates about what he had done.

Under the Act, the maximum sentence for first-degree murder is seven years, but Levack's parents feel the laws need to change.

Morton is eligible for day parole and full parole in two years.

A 17-year-old youth has been charged with aggravated assault in the Tuesday stabbing at C.W. Jefferys Collegiate Institute.

The male youth, who can't be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, turned himself in at 31 Division in the city's northeast end last night.

I give up. Gonna move to the hills and buy a big dog, a shotgun, and hide from the crazies(liberals).

Morton will be allowed to kill again, the victim will be irrelevant to our legal system since the dead have no rights, the victim's family will be exploited by television, and 'judges' will ensure the cycle of violence continues.

Thank you sean. The crazy are placed in mental institutions. The truly crazy create their own nuthouse.

Try and remain scared and stay there, k?
