    Not criminally responsible....

    I'm glad we aren't influenced by the Queen.

    You see, in Canada, you can be a crack head, and be angry at your ex girlfriend's new beau... Break into his home, punch and kick the resident, plead guilty... and be found not criminally responsible...

    I'm sorry, the guy knew what he was doing... and admitted to it... and had a history of criminal activity... And, yes, he's being held "indefinitely" in a mental health institution. But my guess is he'll be out after a few months of detox... and then, can go about his criminal activity again...

    It could be worse!

    Ah Canada. Actually here, you can be a crack head mad your GFs new boyfriend, have a criminal history and bust in his door just like Canada.

    Its after the "bust in door" point where things get dramatically different

    Be interesting to see what our resident Canuck will have to say about this.

    Interesting I don't claim any knowledge of Canadian law. At least we can take comfort that this poor guy wasn't treated like a criminal. Unlike the guy who accidentally entered Canada with a firearm in his possession.

    That's nothing. In this country you can say you're rich and spoiled and get off scot free.

    Oh, you usually have to prove the rich part... by throwing lots of money at lawyers...

    But Mayors? That's the "ruling class," don't you know...

    What about the 16 year old kid here in the USA that murdered a family during his DUI accident?.. charge you ask.. Affluenza or
    Because his family had lots of money and he was a spoiled brat they argued that affluence made him too stupid (Affluenza) to charge with murder

    Money can't buy you happiness but it sure can get you out of trouble or into political office or any combination of such
