Convicted killer Richard Raymond Babinski -- claiming that Ojibway blood somehow courses through his mother's family tree, this sudden revelation coming only after spending years in prison -- sat at his parole hearing in Kingston, his long hair in a braided ponytail, a Native elder at his side, and called himself a "concrete Indian."**********
Some 300 km away in Toronto, in a second-floor Correctional Service of Canada office on Dundas St. W., Jeremy Mead, the 27-year-old man who Babinski turned into a six-year-old orphan when he raped and then strangled his mother, scoffs at the theatre he is witnessing -- all coming to him via video conference.
"The Indian act is bogus," he later says. "All I saw on that screen was a coward, a rapist and a murderer.
RELATED: Aboriginal... it's a state of mind
Just ask convicted Toronto cop-killer Craig Munro...
Thursday's hearing will take place at his minimum-security prison, Kwikwexwelhp Healing Village, which puts aboriginal spirituality at the centre of its rehabilitation program.**********
Munro is not aboriginal but has converted to native teachings.
FROM THE COMMENTS:
"Why is it that fundamentalist Christian crap like "creationism", etc., is readily made fun of by the left, but fundamentalist native crap like "Turtle Island" and "Great Spirit" is sacrosanct?"*
