I always thought the prime directive of a prison warden was to ensure the bad guys were kept behind bars. I never thought I’d see a social justice minded prison warden going to bat for a murderer though.
In a shocking story, a prison warden recently overruled the Parole Board of Canada, and released two-time killer Greg Ashford on temporary passes into the community for the first time, apparently with few restrictions.
The brother of one of Ashford’s Toronto victims is understandably outraged, noting Ashford is a man who preyed on women and will soon be free to pick up where he left off.
Described as someone filled with rage against women, he killed two women in 1985, and has since been questioned by police about killing a third.
Despite this, the Dorchester Penitentiary Warden released him on 20 temporary absence passes, eliminating the parole board’s condition to “immediately report all intimate sexual and non-sexual relationships and friendships with females to your parole supervisor.”
Why would a warden go to bat for a murderer while turning a blind eye to what’s good for society at large?
Some suggest it’s part of that “restorative justice” Justin Trudeau and his ilk like to champion.
If this is the case, shame on all of them.
Where is the “restorative justice” for the two murdered women and any future victims of Greg Ashford?
