  1. I might have missed it in the release, but could you tell me what JP released these criminals? This is for a paper we are writing on the criminal justice in Thunder Bay.

    1. Jake sorry but there is no criminal justice anywhere in Canada anymore. It became extinct just like the blue walleye. What is left over is a system in which the victims are punished and the criminals are rewarded. There are no deterrences for any criminals to worry about anymore. There is no respect for the rule of law at all. Those sacks of crap who do get a stint behind bars are given B&B accommodations, three lovely meals a day, warm snuggly sheets , activities to waste any time they do have to spend there and are givens benefits such as free dental care and prescriptions while behind bars. They have educational opportunites and more programs available to them at no charge. When they present to the ED at a hospital they dont wait three or four hours to see a doctor. No siree, they are hustled right in. Just like VIP service in a casino. I actually have composed and read enough papers on this subject to know how badly the system has decayed. If I were composing a paper today I wouldnt waste my time on a dead horse like criminal justice. I would write a paper on the infinite recidivism rates in this country and how there will be no end to it while the current lack of justice prevails. So whoever said crime does pay has never lived in or visited Canada in the last few decades.

  2. Here we go again. Slap on the wrist. Make sure you behave. Don’t do anything bad. Show up for your court date. Hahahaha. Getting to be a big friggin joke. Don’t let them out and judges start growing a set!!!

  3. The city is in a serious crisis and it seems our feckless JPs and judges haven’t gotten the memo. Something seriously needs to be done about our ineffective judicial system in Dumpster Bay.

    Where is the deterrence factor with these limp dick JPs and judges doing little more than rubber stamp law?

  4. Sorry I made a typo error. I meant to say “Who ever says crime DOESNT pay has never lived in or visited Canada in ths last few decades
