Omar Khadr asking to change bail conditions to visit Toronto

Rebel Staff
 

A former Guantanamo Bay prisoner convicted of killing a U.S. soldier is asking a Canadian court to ease his bail conditions so he can fly to Toronto to visit his family, according to the Canadian Press. 

Toronto-born Omar Khadr, 29, has reportedly filed an application to the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench, which is expected to hear the matter Sept. 11 in Edmonton, expressing a wish to visit his maternal grandparents who live in Ontario’s capital.

He has also requested the removal of his tracking bracelet, claiming it’s embarrassing and intrusive, and his curfew eased.

“My release and reintegration into the community have been going great,” Khadr said in a supporting affidavit seen by the Canadian Press.

“I have not gotten into any trouble of any kind with the authorities.”

Accused of throwing a grenade that killed U.S. soldier Christopher Speer in Afghanistan in 2002, Khadr confessed to a U.S. military tribunal and was convicted and spent 10 years as an inmate at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba. He was then transferred to the Millhaven Institution near Kingston, Ont. before being moved to the Bowden Institution near Innisfail, Alta.

Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench Justice June Ross granted Khadr bail on May 7 in a decision that was appealed by the federal government.

Speaking after Justice Ross’ decision, Conservative Public Safety Minister Stephen Blaney told the CBC: “Our thoughts today are going toward Mrs. Tabitha Speer and her two sons, children who have lost their father, and we believe for individuals who have pleaded guilty to crimes, should serve their sentence behind bars.”

I’m asking Rebels on the forum is to be careful with the words they choose so they don’t find themselves on the wrong side of the country’s rules and regulations. Thanks and much appreciated.

Another important point that we have to keep in mind at all times that nothing is above the law. If you chose to become the citizen of the land, then you should know you had promised yourself that you would abide by the rules of the land and law.

Being Canadian I love my country and the folks who live here take exception when careless threats are made towards Authority, Lawyers, Judges, Law Enforcement officers and Military – All I’m asking Rebels on the forum is to be careful with the words they choose so they don’t find themselves on the wrong side of the country’s rules and regulations.

Wow! What a point of pride Omar…no trouble with the authorities for 4 months. Aren’t you special. I agree with one of the prior comments: take off that bracelet and he’ll be nowhere to be found, except for subversive mosque-of-the-day mission statements to his adherents/followers/suckers/collaborators as how to rise up against his/their oppressors. And he won’t be visiting just his grandparents ( if at all ). He’ll be visiting his terrorist fomenting mother and sister who wouldn’t have a pot to piss in if it weren’t for our ridiculous bleeding heart and lazy social system. Why they’re still in Canada ( other then to suck at the gov’t’s teat ) I’ll never know. If he ever steps foot back in Ontario we should all be there to give him the welcome he so richly does NOT deserve. I’d be happy to pay for a one way ticket back to Afghanistan for him…provided he dons another bracelet…one that explodes if he comes back to Canada.

Our f-up legal system for ya, it pays to be a Terrorist get out on good behavior after 4 months of house arrest. I may just go join up myself. LOL
commented 2015-09-08 22:14:59 -0400
Khadr is not only a dim witted terrorist, he is a chicken little whiner who thinks 4 months of good behaviour proves anything compared to terrorism and murdering a medical soldier who saved his miserable life! Not enough he didn’t get the death penalty in the U.S. He thinks he deserves still more. Maybe his lawyer can’t stand living with him any longer and wants him out! Better Omar goes back to jail where he belongs if he’s so miserable being on probation! He needs to be told, abide by the conditions of your probation or go back to jail, no other options! Oh and STOP WHINING!
commented 2015-09-05 21:01:41 -0400
Not negotiable for most crims, but Omar isn’t just any crim, he has been raised to rockstar status by his leftist groupies. His daddy/defender, publicly reprimands our PM, for trying to keep a terrorist murderer off our streets and in jail where he belongs! You watch that thing come off his ankle before he boards a flight to T.O. to grannies house. I wouldn’t put it past those lunatics.
commented 2015-09-05 20:35:34 -0400
How is a tracking bracelet embarrassing or intrusive? He agreed to these terms 4months ago. It’s that or jail. Probation is not negotiable
commented 2015-09-05 01:36:24 -0400
It is still unbelievable to me that judge Ross disregarded the feds appeal. I’m with Public Safety Minister Stephen Blaney,
"……we believe for individuals who have pleaded guilty to crimes, should serve their sentence behind bars.”
And Omar finds it embarrassing to have to wear the ankle bracelet! And he has a hankering to go visit his old grannie in Toronto. Ya right.
It is important that people don’t forget what Omar and his family have done and stand for. I will never accept him walking free on the streets of Canada.
This stuff must make Speers widow weep.

Richard Brinkman, you have not read bill c-51 and know absolutely nothing about it aside from regurgitated sound bites from msm, or your fellow comrades. Don’t try to tell me you have. You have proven that you have not. You understand nothing of its contents.

Says Brinkman, “All I’m asking Rebels on the forum is to be careful with the words they choose so they don’t find themselves on the wrong side of Canada’s laws”. What a joke. You trying to gag us Brinkman? We don’t need you to ‘remind folks’ here of anything. Go educate yourself.

Yes Richard, I am mocking you fear mongering.
commented 2015-09-04 17:01:53 -0400
Oh, and those true and righteous left wing judges will keep that evil Harper from taking over the world!

Richard says, “I was reminding folks here that now that Bill C51 is LAW you might want to refrain from words that could be interpreted as a threat.”

Ahhhh yes, the fear mongering of the left. "All hell will break loose now. The government has you by the b – - – s now!! Bwhaaa, haaa, haaa! (read as a maniacal laugh of evil!)

Richard, all CSIS and RCMP activities that are covered under C51 must be approved by a judge first. MUST And we all know how left wing the judges are in this country, so you have nothing to worry about. Most requests from CSIS or the RCMP to do cover surveillance will be stopped by the judges. Those true and righteous left wing judges will keep those nefarious evil CSIS and RCMP in check!!

KELVIN GRABOWSKY – I was reminding folks here that now that Bill C51 is LAW you might want to refrain from words that could be interpreted as a threat. Most folks who support Harper / Trudeau’s Bill C51 should understand these new laws by now. I know Omar Khadr’s freedom has sparked a lot of emotions for some Canadians but all Canadians should respect the laws our Government enact and the Judicial system who enforce these laws.

I as one Canadian who loves my country and the people who live here take exception when careless threats are made towards Government, Lawyers, Judges, Law Enforcement officers and Military – All I’m asking Rebels on the forum is to be careful with the words they choose so they don’t find themselves on the wrong side of Canada’s laws.

Richard Brinkman, what free speech muzzled political correctness, bed wetting world do you come from? Liza and George uttered no such threat! Liza simply said , like many of us real Canadians would love to bump into that terrorist in the street to offer him OUR take on his situation. As for George most real Canadians would like to see anyone that had to do with the release of this terrorist held accountable if the little bastard steps out of line. How in the hell is that uttering death threats, is this type of speech hateful to the left nowadays? Is any dissent of political correctness hate speech? If it is then you, sir , are a full fledged communist. And you had better drop the facade that you are for free speech.
And btw I am Charlie fricken Hebdo

I will gladly support the removal of his ankle bracelet, as he is put back into a cell, where he belongs.
commented 2015-09-04 13:28:40 -0400
“I have not gotten into any trouble of any kind with the authorities.” Isn’t that what a person on probation is supposed to do? Stay out of trouble. Why, after only 4 months should we change his bail conditions. Khadr is out of jail living with his lawyer as per the terms of the agreement. That’s the way it should stay for a convicted terrorist (there is another place I think he should be right now but we’ll leave that for another day).

The Rebel Media is exempt from the new laws recently passed through BillC51

- actually no

You might want to be careful what you say on The Rebel Media because they don’t allow for editing and removal of comments once you hit the POST YOUR COMMENT. Some might regard your comments as a threat LIZA ROSIE and GEORGE LUCK including Law Enforcement’ The Rebel Media is exempt from the new laws recently passed through BillC51

Are you uttering threats against other Canadian citizens publicly on The Rebel Media?

LIZA ROSIE : I sure would love to bump into him on the street or on a plane.
GEORGE LUCK: Perhaps it is time that those who are responsible for releasing this scum should be held responsible for his actions while running loose.

Talk about wilful gall. Looks like Khadr and his lawyer are milking a system where the flavour of the day is ‘Gimme, gimme, gimme gets’. It’s my opinion he and his shameful lawyer have continued to make a mockery of our judicial system. Have to wonder if our neighbours to the south are watching and, if so, might they be grinding teeth. Sadly our country seems plagued by a legal system wrought with radically left thinking dim wits who seem to lack even a modicum of common sense. This individual is a ‘terrorist’, plain and simple. Incredibly, our courts have and will likely continue to treat him with kid gloves. This suggests many of our ‘adjudicators’ have sat isolated upon their lofty perchs far too long, completely out of touch with popular main stream ideology. And, worse of all, they make these disturbing decisions with absolute impunity, accountable to no one at all. Can’t help but wonder if this wonderful country of ours is somehow slipping ever so slightly toward a deep and murky quagmire?

Embarrassment? Still no remorse. The judge that set him free is also a puke.
commented 2015-09-04 09:12:49 -0400
The little terrorist puke should have been left as carrion on the battlefield for the maggots to choke on. I suspect the CBC and Liberal party are working behind the scenes to save him from his embarrassment.
commented 2015-09-04 00:00:05 -0400
I thought he wanted nothing to do with them, because they are so radical. I thought that was why he was living with his Lawyer in Edmonton?

Omar makes me sick. I am sure any mention of him makes Spear’s widow and family want to retch. Omar should not be free. His family should not be in this country!

I sure would love to bump into him on the street or on a plane. He should not be comfortable in public. He needs to be called out on every occasion. Omar Khadar is a murderer, and a terrorist, born and bread, and his mother and sister in Toronto are no better. They are radical, and before Omar was sent here from Gitmo, spent no time in Canada except just enough yearly, to keep citizenship.
commented 2015-09-03 22:00:16 -0400
There is little doubt that this dirty little murderer will be returned to the streets of Canada to work his wicked will. Perhaps it is time that those who are responsible for releasing this scum should be held responsible for his actions while running loose.

If that tracking bracelet comes off, he will mysteriously disappear.
commented 2015-09-03 20:47:27 -0400
It is ironic that this matter will be heard on Sept 11. I hope the judge will be thinking of what took place on that awful day & not be so keen to grant Khadr his wish. He says he has not been in any trouble, well I should hope not & he should be thanking his lucky stars (in this case Justice June Ross) for getting bail. He comes across as an arrogant little terrorist that he is & how dare he ask that his tracking bracelet be removed because it’s embarrassing, well that’s too bad. Suck it up.
