i agree with you no1. i believe it is a lack of parenting on all sides. very tragic. when i read details about this case this morning, i couldn't believe the fact that she was convicted the first time, appealed the conviction, was out on bail. First it was basically house arrest, then her lawyers appealed that, so she was allowed to look for work, then they appealed that, and she ended up living at a 'half way' house in new westminster. that is when she beat the crap out of a woman in a park.
what gives here? she goes from pleading guilty, given 5 years, her lawyers appeal, so she is basically set free until her next trial. it is so depressing our system. was she not kept under more supervision due to lack of room in jails/half way houses? no wonder individuals get so upset at the way the system works.
