blackbird Posted March 15 Report Share Posted March 15 The Supreme Court ruled last year that the law passed by the Harper government in 2011 giving consecutive sentences for mass murderers was unconstitutional and since then killers who were given longer sentences have had their sentences reduced to a maximum of 25 years at which time some may be eligible for parole. This means the families must go through the hellish parole hearings which causes great ongoing distress in their lives because they don't know if these killers will be released on parole. This is not justice. This is cruelty imposed on the innocent families by the Supreme Court. EDITORIAL: Supreme Court imposed cruelty on families (msn.com) How is it a small group of unelected judges can make such a ruling overturning our elected parliament's decisions on such crucial matters. There is something seriously wrong with this system. It needs to be radically changed. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
