Police err, Sex offender on the loose


Recommended Posts

I was listening to ABC (US) news.

Their report is that Canadian police failed to file paperwork to stop sex offender Michael Stanley at the border, after he cut off his electronic anklet in Edmonton.

They said Canadian police tell them it will take months now to get the paperwork for an arrest in the US.

The Canadian press isn't quite reporting it that way:

There's a Canada-wide warrant, but why didn't police address the border issue?

A known and repeated violent sex offender, now loose in the US with no arrest warrant.

Way to go Canada cops! :rolleyes:

Something not quite right here. He was only missing for a week, so how would they get paperwork that supposedly take months done before he turned up in the US? He is a US citizen who is not wanted for anything in the US. Seems to me that even if the Americans arrested him at the border, we would still have to go through the extradition process.

I just learned that he's an American citizen., though he's been here since 1987 at least.

Doesn't seem like the Canadian cops or US Marshal's office is too concerned, since there's not much to hold him on here and nothing down there.

Until his next victims surface, I guess.

You'd think Canada would be glad to be rid of him; I'm sure not giving him a welcome back to the U.S. Unless/until he gets extradited, he's our problem; but if Canada wants him to finish the sentencing process for the crimes he committed in Canada, I'm sure the government will be filing for extradition.

Does Canada ever actually deport anyone?

From what I've read, Canada wants him back.

Does anyone know if he has dual citizenship - or just American citizenship? I would wager that Canada has deported non-citizens.
