Cindy Gladue - death 2011
« on: September 07, 2016, 09:40:24 AM »
A most heinous crime, and the killer was acquitted. Much information was denied the jury during this court case, including the fact that Bradley Barton frequently visited a site on the Internet which promoted torturous sex, which police found evidence of when doing a forensic sweep of Barton's computer.
There have been demonstrations across Canada that this man was acquitted. Lets hope this appeal goes through! Barton got away with murder!

This Bradley Barton is from Ontario, a long haul trucker. IMO, he is one to look at for other similar deaths. Police found on his computer researched torturous porn. He made several stories about the night Cindy was killed, making it sound frantic to me, anyway ... to see which one would stick.
Who is to say he didn't do this before in one of his many stops but bodies were not discovered until it was too late to find COD. Who is to say he hasn't done it again, since he only spent 5 weeks in jail prior to trial.
He can be using a false name while luring women, especially since his name is now well known across Canada. He said he was a family man ... it's what he told cops when he was apprehended and he didn't want this getting out what he did when away from home. Perhaps now he could be divorced by his wife and a free man, with anger issues against STW's or women in general.

(Barton's lawyer had gotten forensic testimony from an American who specialized in children's cases (not any cases of this nature) and is for hire) We've seen this before in other cases where a YES professional was brought in from USA ... YES because they were well paid by the defense lawyer to agree to his version,

There was so much evidence the jury was not allowed to see during the first trial, so imo, they can not be blamed for the failings of the lax justice system that allowed this monster to go free.

I hope they test his DNA to other cases across Canada that remain unsolved. With his level of violence, I doubt very much this was his first.

This is all so terrible on so many levels.  The way that the murdered woman was described in court, lacking any sensitivity or respect.

And the verdict was wrong - wrong = wrong.

Justice was not served.

Is he still out there - treating women the same way?

Well if he did that once, and had a ton of violent masochistic videos on his computer, that tells me this likely was not an isolated incident. Perhaps he was careful since Cindy's death but I do wonder about before. I hope unsolved homicides across Canada get looked at again by LE in regards to similarities and using his DNA.

I did not find any articles that claim police have him in custody yet, but the charges went from 2nd degree the first trial to 1st degree now.

So many many wrongs in Cindy's case. Even her lawyer wasn't on her side and portrayed her very poorly. The jury was instructed by someone who has shown they do not have a neutral position when it comes to STW's.
All this brings back questions in my mind regarding what work was done by KARE and was squashed by upper crust.

Bradley Barton hailed from Mississauga. Only 44 minutes from Orangeville. SV's murder was bizarre and brutal too.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/supreme-court-to-hear-appeal-of-new-trial-decision-in-cindy-gladue-case/article38247550/Despite our society's recognition of individual autonomy and equality, there still remains an undeniable need for judges to ensure that the criminal law is not tainted by pernicious and unfair assumptions, whether about women, Aboriginal people, or sex-trade workers," said the written ruling from the Appeal Court.
"Failing to meet that need can undermine the jurors' ability to apply the law objectively and correctly. Regrettably, in this case, the jury charge was deficient in all these respects."

As usual in rulings on leaves to appeal, the Supreme Court gave no reasons for deciding to hear the case.
Barton's trial heard that he hired Gladue for two nights of sex in June 2011. He testified that during both nights he put his fist in her vagina, but on the second night she started bleeding.

Barton said when he woke up the next morning he found her dead in the motel room bathtub and called 911.
A medical examiner testified that an 11-centimetre cut in Gladue's vaginal wall was caused by a sharp object.
The controversial acquittal sparked an outcry and demonstrations in several cities.
Barton's Edmonton defence lawyer Dino Bottos said the Supreme Court now has a chance to clarify the law surrounding consent.
"The #MeToo movement is calling for robust and perhaps wholesale changes to the law of consent in the context of sexual assault. The defence bar across the country is saying the law, as it is, strikes the right balance and there's no change necessary," Bottos said.

"This represents the Supreme Court of Canada's opportunity to weigh in on that and to say ... whether some tinkering of the law is required."

Julie Kaye, research adviser for the Institute for the Advancement of Aboriginal Women, said the decision to hear the appeal is "disheartening."

Kaye said the Supreme Court has already issued a number of rulings on consent and recognized racism and discrimination toward Indigenous women at criminal trials. The appeal means the Gladue family's pain over her death will be prolonged, she said.
"To put the family through another long process and to leave things up in the air for the Indigenous community when there is that body of evidence is difficult to take."
Lise Gotell, who chairs the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), said the ruling is disappointing because the organization believes the Alberta Appeal Court "got it right."
"This is a case that has critical implications for women's rights to bodily autonomy and also the rights of Indigenous women. And it was especially disappointing that this decision to grant leave would come on International Women's Day."
Bottos expects the high court will hear the appeal either late this year or early 2019.
