We've been talking about this story here at work for days now.
This Farmer was charged with (I believe
) seven major charges,
and the Thief was charged with one charge of theft...last I heard
the other two Thieves hadn't been caught yet either, and the one
that was shot was treated & released from the hospital (& custody)
with a promise to appear that very same night.
RCMP response times out in the country are usually not great, at
best. If the expected response time is a 1/2 an hour, or an hour, or
hours....I can see where Brian Knight & his Neighbours would be
very frustrated. Mr. Knight wasn't charged with Bigamy or Jay
-Walking, but with every other possible charge even vaguely and
remotely applicable by the RCMP...and the Thief only got one
charge. This sure doesn't have a "just' feel to it at this point.
