  1. I don’t get it, why is he allowed out after not being in jail even a year for murder?? When he goes back for court in 2020, if he is found guilty does he go back to jail or does he stay a free man? I am very confused with how this works and why a second degree murderer was only in jail 11 months

    1. You think you’re confused? What about the shit-for-brains judge that put this killer back on the streets? That idiot is well beyond confusion to make a foolish decision like that. Incompetence at it’s worst.

      After his trial, the snake will likely get another 30 days compliments of Gladue and some spineless judge. Life is cheap in Dumpster Bay.

  2. WTF do they release a man charged with murder ?? He walked out of court laughing. I don’t care what kind of upbringing he had, this pos took the life of a 17yr old who would of had a chance to do great things in his life.

  3. Never fails to shock and disgust me when these murdering b@stards are released on bail. Where’s the protection for the general public? What’s to stop this animal from killing again?

    Our JPs and judges are seriously failing ups.

    Maybe one of the victim’s friends or family will dole out the justice this murderer deserves.

  4. Who’s to be held accountable when this murderer takes another life or severely injures someone while he’s out on bail? What actions can a family take against an incompetent JP or judge if a family member is killed or seriously hurt by this murdering snake?

    Our courts are totally dysfunctional with such gutless JPs and judges. Govt needs to take a long hard look at our failing justice system and totally incompetent judges.

  5. IT S FORT HOPE THAT HAS HIM IN THERE COMMUNITY – SAD – BETTER THERE THAN JUNKIE BAY. IF HE DOES SCREW UP THE ONLY ACTION WOULD B 2 SUE THE JUDGE – JUNKIE BAY COURT SYSTEM – COULD EVEN SUE GOVERNMENT – PATTY HAJDU – LIBERAL GOVERNMENT 4 NOT ENSUREING PUBLIC SAFETY – COULD B A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT. WOULD B ONLY WAY 4 VICTIMS 2 HOLD THE FACIST LIBERALS ACCOUNTABLE
