Blaming the wrong person!


Michele Mandel's column today blames the Justice of the Peace who sat on Emmanuel Owusu-Ansah's bail hearing for a brutal murder apparently committed by Owusu-Ansah.  She suggests that no one charged with assault and threatening should get bail.

I'm sorry -- a lot of innocent people, especially during a bad divorce, get charged. Remember people charged are not necessarily guilty and people make false allegations.

Should everyone accused of a crime have to spend months or years in jail waiting to be acquitted? No, that's why we have bail.

What's more we don't know what the Justice of the Peace was or wasn't told at  Owusu-Ansah's bail hearing or even if the Crown asked for Owusu-Ansah to be kept in jail  -- and publication bans on bail hearing come from the Criminal Code and not the Justice of the Peace (speak to Stephen Harper about that!).

I'm a defence lawyer who works with Justices of the Peace and so may be biased, but the person to blame isn't the Justice of the Peace.  If anyone deserves blame it's Emmanuel Owusu-Ansah if and when he is found guilty of this dreadful and beastly crime.

I like that. Can I replace defence lawyer with gun owner, and Justice of the Peace with guns, and expect the same level of outrage when the press gets worked up over an outrageous crime?

Hello Dee Dee, it is quite strange, yet , believable how everything is intended to glorify Satan.
Many people Christians might not exactly know to start with,
because we aren't on Satan's territory, but even as
we understand certain possessions which have been demonic, it will
help to spread the news to your sisters and brothers.

It's no surprise that, there's much evil that tries to
prevail inside the body of Christ, a lot of thing we own, are created to honor Satan.
Also, the actual you mentioned about playing cards and dolls, is very interesting.
However, we see how a Devil is slick and uses specific things
that could look very pretty and intensely fun games to play
while he or she is behind it. Thanks a lot a lot Dee Dee just for this information.

I have the complication resolved on publishing the tags.
Somehow, I acquired a top frame on web page one that was non-standard (smaller sized) compared to the various other
web pages. This was tossing every tag off. I can not find
a method of erasing the first web page just,
so I reduced and pasted each address in to a brand-new tag file.
The result was excellent and the top frame on every
one of the pages were great.

I leave a response when I appreciate a post on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to
the conversation. Usually it is caused by the passion displayed in the article I read.
And on this post "Blaming the wrong person!". I was
actually excited enough to post a commenta response :-) I actually do have a couple
of questions for you if you don't mind. Is it only me or does it appear like a few of these responses come across like coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other online sites, I'd like to keep
up with anything fresh you have to post.
Would you make a list the complete urls of all your communal
sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Can be accomplished precisely the same way Gary .

.. if you are talking about the tearable kind from Avery.

Individual cards are a little harder and also rely on the paper
dealing with abilities of your specific printer.

Back in the past days (definition: 10 years ago) printservers would certainly
often have their own set of data that would be appended to every printjob, essentially enhancing the complication
of the task. That was at times sufficient to make a
gadget lacked memory. I have no idea if it still makes much
of a difference nowadays.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
