VANCOUVER -- A Vancouver-area woman who was convicted of brutally killing animals and admitted to wanting to kill a homeless person can now leave her halfway house unescorted.
A court order issued Thursday means Kayla Bourque can leave the New Westminster, B.C., residence between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Thursdays but must wear a GPS tracking device and have permission from her parole officer.
Her lawyer, Andrew Bonfield, says the order is "not freedom," as Bourque is already living under numerous court conditions.
B.C.'s Ministry of Justice warned the public about Bourque's release from custody in September 2015, noting she was under 47 court-ordered conditions.
An earlier ruling from the B.C. Court of Appeal says Bourque told a fellow university student that she wanted to kill a homeless person and was in forensic studies to learn how to evade police.
Bourque has also pleaded guilty previously to charges of causing suffering and unlawfully killing animals, admitting to killing a family cat and dog between 2009 and 2010.

Is there a connection between the two?

People that kill innocent animals clearly have mental problems. Jeffrey Dahmer was cruel to animals as a young man. The woman should be monitored closely or if she has family they should seek psychiatric help for her.

Absolutely, I see nothing in common between her and Omar.

They both wanted to kill people. One actually followed through.

And you can't see the similarity?

Perhaps one was just for the sake of killing.

I see the haters just can't help themselves. Gotta draw comparisons where comparisons don't fit.


Gotta be pretty sad to live life with that much hatred and fear.

Wants to kill for a silly theology/ideology. Wants to kill for sh!ts and giggles.

Can you see the common word?

I won't apologise for not liking people who want to kill for silly theologies/ideologies or sh!ts and giggles. And I still don't lock my doors at night.

I am sure, that for you, the comparison is valid. Makes it all the more sadder.

Would comparing you to Kayla and Khadr be a valid comparison?

Well, that would depend on what context. I am human like they are. I have a criminal record like both. Me and Khadr can make IED's and handle automatic weapons. I've killed lots and lots of animals.

So ya, I guess you could. The only difference being context. In the context used by DaS and I, we're correct in the comparison.

This woman scares the bejeebers out of me. The fact that we have absolutely no idea what has caused her psychopathy nor have any treatment for her. She is walking around across the bridge from me.

To have no ability to empathize...to understand that another feels things...to dismiss the knowledge like it's inconsequential. alien. so very alien.

It's certainly not a topic I'm prepared to discuss (beat to death) at length, I just know for sure which of the two people mentioned I'd rather take my chances with one on one and it ain't her. I think there's a slim chance I could read Omar's mind, there's no way I'd even attempt to read what passes for her mind. Scary sh*t!

I think if you were closely connected to one, you'd change your thinking a bit. Believe me, there's no worse problem you can have with a person you love! That's the extent of my discussion of the issue.

Either of them would move next door......my door would be locked
For one, it would be to protect my dog, for the other it would be for my wife and my protection...
Your guess as to which...if you are blessed with critical thought

go start a thread about the jib rats in surrey if you want to discuss them so bad.

Otherwise since this special girl isn't a jib rat, lets talk about her psycopathy and the dangers of her type of person, not addicts.

The Top 10 Careers With The Most Psychopaths

Kevin Dutton, a research psychologist at the University of Oxford, has dedicated much of his life to studying the brains of psychopaths and he's been able to piece together a list of the most likely professions psychopaths end up in. Is your career on the list?

1. CEOs

Corporate America is loaded with brutal metaphors. When you succeed, it's because you were cutthroat and ended up making a killing, and now you're known as a shark. Doesn't that just sound like a wonderful place for a psychopath? I'm sure plenty of CEOs are great people... but several studies suggest that 4% of CEOs qualify as psychopaths. That's 4x as many people as in the general population.

2. Lawyer.

There are lots of heartless lawyer jokes, but there may be some credence to them. Many lawyers exhibit signs of psychopathy, which makes lying, cheating, and obsessing with profit nothing to bat an eye at. As one lawyer he interviewed said:

“Deep inside me there's a serial killer lurking somewhere. But I keep him amused with cocaine, Formula One, booty calls, and coruscating cross-examination."

3. Media (Radio/TV)

Makes sense right? Obviously, not everyone in the media industry scores high on the psychopath meter, but if you think of some of the most prominent psychopathic personalities in our world right now, it all seems to make sense.

4. Sales People

In Working With Monsters: How to Identify and Protect Yourself from the Workplace Psychopath, John Clarke says that having a psychopath on your team can be a really good thing. “The psychopath is very likely to be a good salesperson, if they are intelligent as well as glib and superficial," Clarke writes. “In fact, a study done in 2001 by Marc Hamer found that superior sales performance was associated with higher levels of narcissism (egocentric and grandiose), sociopathy and cognitive empathy."

The drawback there is that you're bound to run into their self-centered attitude. They're also more likely to exploit the system in which they work.

5. Surgeons

This one really surprised me. Doctors and nurses landed on the list of careers with the fewest psychopaths, but surgeons are one of the most psychopathic around. In a 2014 piece in Pacific Standard, Wen Shen states “the trouble with surgeons [is]...[m]any are abrasive, abusive, and wildly self-centered—so much so that observers have speculated that they suffer from psychiatric disorders."

She thinks this can be traced back to when surgery was performed without anesthesia. Being a surgeon meant you had to operate to "a soundtrack of screams" and keeping it cool. There's an active push for kinder surgeons today.

6. Journalists

Jeff Cash, a freelance writer, once wrote that, “a hint of psychopathy is actually a prerequisite for public purpose journalism."

“Psychopathy can creep in all too easily in the world of journalism, as any reporter who's had an after-hours fight with some obnoxious public relations officer can attest to. (That's pretty much all of them, by the way). Seeing your name in a national newspaper on a daily basis is enough to turn even the most humble being into a fountain of narcissism. And if you think that's bad, just imagine how much appearing on national television would contribute to one's superiority complex."

I can see that being the case.

7. Police officer.

Most disturbingly, the people charged with keeping the peace may be the most likely ones to shatter it. According to Police Domestic Violence: A Handbook for Victims, “women suffer domestic abuse in at least 40 percent of police officer families."

Additionally, “police families are two to four times more likely than the general population to experience domestic violence."

8. Clergy.

This one is pretty amusing to me. The clergy is supposed to promote the gospel and make the world better, but as we saw with the Catholic Church's child sex abuse scandals, psychopathy was at play. First in the act of molesting these children, then in the church's desire to cover it all up.

Psychopaths may be attracted to the clergy because of easy access to victims. Many televangelists and preachers have been accused of megalomaniacal behavior, like Ted Haggard, Bill Gothard, Creflo Dollar, and Geronimo Aguilar.

9. Chefs

Chef Gordon Ramsay once told Vanity Fair that “Chefs are nutters. They're all self-obsessed, delicate, dainty, insecure little souls and absolute psychopaths. Every last one of them." It seems like such a strange profession for that kind of behavior, but Anthony Bourdain perhaps correctly chocked it up to a combination of working with *******s and being a perfectionist.

“Some chefs borrow money, they do everything they can, they kill themselves, it's the culmination of a career working 100 hours a week or more. They finally open a place and within eight minutes of opening, some ******* has posted on Yelp, 'Worst meal ever.' You can understand why they go insane, and do everything they can to ameliorate that."

10. Civil Servants

It certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility that a DMV worker might be kind of a psychopath. There's power in the roles of civil servants, and psychopaths often single-mindedly crave power.

Dennis Rader, who was the self-dubbed BTK killer, was a census field operations supervisor in Kansas. He was later a dogcatcher. From wikipedia: “neighbors recalled him as being sometimes overzealous and extremely strict; one neighbor complained that he euthanized her dog for no reason."

The Sales person Psychopath ...I know EXACTLY that person, every single word of that dscription.
I can even comment on exploiting the system as the Psycho has arranged that millions of dollars of materials comes from one source owned by an old classmate and second sourcing is VERBOTTEN. Why does the employer put up with it? The boss inhereted the place, is not up to it and looks the other way because PSYCHO IS SUCH A DAMNED GOOD SALESMAN. Anyway, I left that toxic company voluntarily. How do you deal with a narcissitic bullying psychopath? Migration is pretty much the only way.
