I agree with the CPunishment being reinstated. I feel that anyone who takes a life, especially in a crime involving sex crimes against children, I would like to pull the switch. Not enough is being done to keep these bastards in jail. Things are getting a bit better in relation to getting them caught on the internet. Hats off to them for catching the guy over in Thailand from BC, that was a good catch. Well let us all pray that he gets the 20 years he may get and rot in jail over there. Slime is what he is, makes me sick to my stomach when I see his face on TV.  ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

It makes me sick to that some judges, seem more interested in making new precedent then dispensing justice. It seems handing out very short sentences is the way they get noteriety amung peers.

Well we are getting a bit of justice in our area the Cape Breton area has in the city of Sydney closed down another known drug house. There was a standoff on Wednesday morning at 6:00, when most people are just getting up for work, they had all the police there and tazered the individual and had to throw tear gas in the home, big stuff for Sydney, just like Toronto or Edmonton. Within 24 hours after they put the new law that is in effect here about drug houses and evicted the persons and boarded it up, just like that. It is great that they were successful in getting that law here before we are overrun with those places and it just cuts it off at the pass. Congrats to our police force and our men in blue, give them credit because I know they had something to do with getting this put in place with the CBRM.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D :D :D :D :D :D :D

It really irks me, when the cops, do good work on arresting someone, especially if dangerous, such as murder, or sex offences, and the perps get away with almost zilch, or zilch!!

Why aren't some Judges in tune to what is happening, and also, realize that peds don't stop.They will go back to it, and some may escalate to murder.

Sad thing is, cops can keep busting the bad guys, but I am certain some judge will feel sorry for these criminals and release them.

Canada has done so much to raise the standards of police officers in the past generation, why can't we do the same thing for judges now?

go through weeks of gruelling training, take a psych exam, a lie-detector test and be interviewed over and over again

Wouldn't it be great if our elected officals had to go thru that?

Allan Young, and Carol Strachan: Changes needed in the sex trade!


 By ANDREW HANON
   
Click here to find out more!

For nearly a year-and-a-half, a very quiet war has been fought over the sex trade across Canada. Last week the battlefield shifted to right here in Edmonton.

The drama played out downtown in a highrise's private boardroom, where federal government lawyers squared off with Osgoode Hall Law School crusader Alan Young.

He's challenging the constitutionality of Criminal Code sections outlawing common bawdy houses and living off the avails of prostitution.

Young argues the current, Byzantine regime --where selling sex is legal, but the rules governing prostitution make it almost impossible to do so safely -- is actually more dangerous than if brothels were simply legal, licensed and regulated.

He began the Supreme Court application back in March 2007 and has gathered testimony and affadavits across Canada. Young admits he was a taken aback with how hard the feds are opposing him.

"They really took this very seriously," he says. "They've made a very simple case into a very complex one."

As a result, it's going to take years to get resolved.

Many of the witnesses who testified in Edmonton were actually for the Crown, including representatives of the Edmonton police and the Prostitituion Awareness and Action Foundation of Edmonton.

Among Young's chief witnesses here was Carol-Lynn Strachan, a sex-trade advocate who became a national figure when she took Edmonton city hall to court, arguing that its escort licensing bylaw, which charges escorts thousands of dollars in annual fees, meant the city was living off the avails of prostitution.

She lost the case, but claimed a moral victory for drawing public attention to the issue.

Young has made a career challenging "state authority to criminalize what is consensual."

He's fought against gambling, obscenity and drug laws he feels needlessly restrict personal freedom. His biggest claim to fame was fighting laws prohibiting medical marijuana.

Young has wanted to challenge sex-trade laws for years, but bided his time.

The time was right when, at the beginning of the decade, the Seattle area's Green River Killer was caught and the horrors of the Pickton farm began to unfold in Vancouver, drawing massive public attention to the killing fields that were street-prostitution strolls.

Since then other cases, like the Edmonton trial of prostitute killer Thomas Svekla and Project Kare's investigation of dozens of deaths and disappearances in the Edmonton area, have continued to keep media and public attention focussed on the issue.

Young's argument is that Canada's prostitution laws force too many women onto the street,where they're easy targets for unspeakable violence.

If they were working in regulated brothels, he argues, it would be far safer for them and dramatically reduce all the havoc that street prostitution wreaks on neighbourhoods.

Properly regulating brothels, Young says, would also eliminate what he refers to as "classic pimping," the violent, exploitive sugar daddy living like a leech of women's misery.

"You should legally be able to work with and for prostitutes," Young says. And if it was all legal and licensed, prostitutes would have the same protection as anyone else in a business relationship.

"The way things are right now, no sex worker can legally protect herself."

It surprises me to learn that at 25 years old I seem to know more about how shitty our justice system really is. I am one of the young women that went to court against Judge David Ramsey, and believe me when I say that the justice had nothing to do with the fact that he was held accountable for his actions. When we first came forward we were urged by many to keep silent, we were told that nothing would ever come of it, and nothing would have if it wasnt for 4 very courageous girls who decided that no one was going to silence them. And it really sadens me to say that if he wasnt a judge he would have even seen bars, our system is more corrupt than most of you realize and for some of you your mind will never fully understand. Our sytem is no better than the monsters that it has created.

I believe a good justice system can only be developed when you weed out the bad lawyers who become judges later on.

By the way, I have read alot about other justice systems, I tend to like the Laws of England, where justice began. The lawyers there too, take better care of their clients.

Anyways...besides that, I feel that our justice system needs a revamping. I believe that we need to separate our court systems, I MEAN SEPARATE. Different buildings, different judges, different lawyers.

There should be a court house for crimes.
There should be a court house for traffic infractions.
There should be a court house for family law.
There should be a court house for consumer laws.

In other words there should be a court house for each specialty of law.

Judges prerequisites are areas of expertise in the court house assigned.

For example...a judge who lawyered and specialized in oil and gas industry should not be sitting on Family Law cases.

Each judge should be held accountable for their decisions, and appeals should be more readily attained and expediated. Each judge should know that they are not 'GOD'. They are paid very well, and should be on top of all laws pertaining to their court.

Each year a judge should have a physical exam, including a psychological exam. There are judges in the court system including the Court of Queens Bench who suffer from mental illnesses, and drug and alcohol abuse. It would be the responsibility of the committees to give "Leaves of Absences" or dismiss the individual if this person is not capable of judging.

Society is becoming more and more educated. Our laws are becoming more and more in question. The people who hand down the laws are now becoming more and more absurd, because they are well aware that society is questioning their ability to handle the position of being a judge.

Revamping our judicial system will obsolete judges who are ruling unjustly, or incompetently, or trying to make a precedent to get their name in a book.

Some of these judges even hope the more precedents they make, maybe they will become one of the twelve higher court judges for Canada.

We have to remember the old saying..."You scratch my back, and I'll scratch yours!" That is what our court system is now made up of.

New Jersey reinstated the 'Death Penalty' in 1982, there has not been an execution since 1963.

Woman accused of killing 7-year-old Toronto girl appears in court
 
Canwest News Service

Friday, September 19, 2008

TORONTO - Donna Irving, one of two people facing first-degree murder charges in the death of seven-year-old Katelynn Sampson, made a brief appearance in court Friday.

Irving had custody of Katelynn while the young girl's mother, Bernice Sampson, was dealing with personal issues.

Police responded to a 911 call on Aug. 3, which claimed the girl had choked on food, but when they arrived, police found Katelynn dead with obvious signs of trauma on her body.

One officer said the nature of the girl's injuries were the worst he had seen during his 20-year career.

Warren Johnson, 46, also faces first-degree murder charges in connection with Katelynn's death.

Both Irving and Johnson originally were charged with second-degree murder, but the charges were upgraded.

Irving, 29, is scheduled to be back in court - via video - on Oct. 3 at Toronto's College Park.

She remains in police custody.

Baba, you are kidding right?  What do you mean by, "...where justice began..." ?

Criminals always want to put the blame on someone else predators that prey on kids blame their own childhood problems. If a caring person was hurt as a child the last thing they would do is hurt a child when they grew up. Most criminals in this country give the judge a sob tell about what happen to them and because of this they get sympathy and they are out in less than two years to prey on on others. Its called the defense blame.
