Teens plead guilty to mass murder plot - Winnipeg

Our justice system so sucks. This is really scary and what is being done about it? The usual slap on the wrist. If the young guy and girl and put this plan into action they would have gotten two slaps on the wrist. Judges wake up and do your job properly!!! I blame the judges but it is the laws that have to change to make a difference, with judges strapping on their jock strap and handing out tougher sentences.

Teens plead guilty to mass murder plot

Two teenagers who conspired to kill staff, students and employees at three Winnipeg schools and a church pleaded guilty to conspiring to commit murder Tuesday.

The two, a male and a female, were 17 when they were charged by Winnipeg police in January and cannot be identified under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

The both turned 18 while in custody.

Police said the conspiracy was past the planning stage and would have involved the use of four rifles and ammunition to attack the four locations.

Const. Jacqueline Chaput said at the time the plan was to kill at random as many people as possible, including students, adults, church parishioners and "pretty much anyone who was going to get in their way."

The boy was arrested at a Winnipeg psychiatric ward after his father phoned police to inform them of the conspiracy.

Lorette Collegiate, Fort Richmond Collegiate, the University of Manitoba and Church of the Rock were the targets of the plot, according to court documents.

No word on punishment

Police said they found firearms stolen from a Portage la Prairie home in a Waverley Heights home last November. The home was where the boy lived with his mother.

But in Tuesday's hearing, the Crown stayed all weapons-related and breaking and entering charges.

The Crown has said it will seek adult sentences with the consent of the teens' defence lawyers.

But Crown attorney Susan Baragar told CBC News she won't reveal in advance how much jail time prosecutors are seeking.

"As it will be a joint recommendation I don't think it should be published until the court has heard it," Baragar said in an email.

The next step will be a hearing to determine where the two will serve their sentences.

It's possible they could remain in a youth facility if they're not going to be housed there past age 20.

Their next court date will be Oct. 7 at the Manitoba Youth Centre.

Ah, let's just place this sweet young couple in the Youth Detention Centre, Judge. Then when they are released, they will be completely rehabilitated. A real jail is no place for these sweet little things, after all it was only plotted. They did not take action - right Judge?

Then - when they do get out, they could be a real Bonnie & Clyde. - Let's give them a chance.  laaugh out loud.

Peace
