Admitted child killer free after only 46 months

Postby llipgh2 on Fri Dec 14, 2012 10:59 am

Aw...he was "mentally ill". He admitted to killing his own children (in horrific fashion) but claimed he "blacked out" while doing it and doesn't remember.

Right.

Being a physician, he knew exactly how to play the 2 psychiatrists to make it look like he was the victim. And obviously the prosecution failed miserably on its' part.

Now that he's free he wants to "re-marry and have more children". :face:

Canadians are outraged, as well they should be.

i'm curious about repeat offenses for people who are released for horrific crimes because of mental illness. my instinct in this situation is to think it's bull**** to bring people like this back into society, but i could probably be swayed they other way if there was OVERWHELMING evidence that these people are as permanently manageable as the doctors say.

If he is mentally ill, shouldn't he be admitted into a suitable institution instead of being set free? I don't get it.

Totally agree. This guy is "mentally ill" and obviously cannot properly function in society. Crimes are crimes, no matter the mental make-up of the criminal.

When people who have been diagnosed as schizophrenic paranoid or psychotic prior to committing crimes, I'm more understanding. There is a pattern of insanity.

Obviously it's a bias, but when someone who has apparently exhibited no psychotic or paranoid behavior or is "upset" because things aren't going his way kills like this...I'm not buying it. I see it as revenge. This guy wanted to hurt his wife for hurting him. In the worst possible fashion. So he killed their children. (It's not just men that do this, women have as well. I'm just applying it to this case.)

Coupled with the fact he's a doctor and knows exactly what to say to the 2 psychiatrists. And the defense I'm sure found 2 sympathetic to cases like this.

Not buying it, in this case.

I think it's because he's not mentally ill, he just played the courtroom at the time. And then I'm guessing the hospital let him go...it's kind of like "A Time to Kill".

In any case, I don't see how they could possibly set him free. I doesn't make any sense to me and I'm sure it makes even less sense to his ex-wife.

Anyone who commits murder obviously has some form of mental issue.

Kill them all.

Does that make me mentally ill?

oh come on, 39 stab wounds between both of his children. he's only getting about a month per...... that's justice right? guy should have his testicles chopped off without any meds, handed back to him, and then should be introduced to the pear of anguish. ...and then a $.50 bullet to finish it. :-) I'm fair.

I hopped on to defend the system, but it seems odd that he wouldn't be confined there.
