Canadian justice FAILURE: Woman drowns newborn son before taking exam, gets two years PROBATION

StaffRebel Columnist

A BC mother who drowned her newborn son before going to write a university exam was given an absolute joke of a punishment.

19-year-old Courtney Saul of BC was only sentenced to two years’ probation.

Her baby, George Carlos, was born on Dec. 15, 2011 in the bathroom of a basement suite where she was living.

According to Canadian Press, “She held the baby for some time, but she had an exam that day,” Crown lawyer Will Burrows said. “Because she had the exam, she didn’t know what to do. She finally decided she should drown the baby. She did that in the sink and then she went to her exam.”

Later, wrapped the baby’s body in a T-shirt and a shower curtain and placed it in an empty computer box. The box was then placed inside a backpack and in the trunk of a car. The body was found by a police officer when Saul loaned her car to an acquaintance, who was involved in a collision.

Saul told police the baby was a result of a sexual assault. “She believed someone had sexual intercourse with her while she was unconscious,” Burrows said.

“This is certainly a tragedy in all senses of the word,” Defence lawyer Murray Armstrong said. “In terms of punishment, there’s no punishment greater than the guilt and remorse she feels.”

When Judge Len Marchand asked Saul of she had anything to say, her only words were “I know I made a mistake.”

“It is an abhorrent act and it was inflicted on a vulnerable and completely helpless person,” Judge Marchand said.

According to Canadian Press, Marchand said that “mitigating factors — including Saul’s lack of a criminal history and the circumstances of how she became pregnant — were powerful.”

In addition to only two years probation, Saul was ordered to provide a sample of her DNA to a national criminal database.

Wow, except for our American friend, you people are stubborn. I still think that there could be nothing worse in life than reading about a mother drowning her healthy baby in the bathroom sink.
What are your views on the following suggestion to eliminate situations like the above? “All 12 year old girls temporarily sterilized until they are mentally and financially ready to reproduce”

Ron Joseph, the only difference with the morning after pill is that the murder would have taken place “out of sight” so would be deemed OK by the morally bankrupt. My wife and I adopted two girls who were slated to be aborted by. Almost never is abortion the right decision.

As C.S. Lewis said, “In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”

― C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

We murder the unborn but then are aghast that some murder the recently born. Not to worry. Our ever deceitful left wingers will coin a new definition to hide the reality. How about “post-natal abortion”?

Ron Joseph – my bible tells me that life begins at conception. Any which way you want to spin this it’s still murder and a sin against God.

Peter—my post should have said some people here are INDIRECTLY responsible for this baby’s death.
First of all, Liberals and Conservatives, no matter what their views on abortion will agree, that there is nothing worse than a healthy baby or child murdered in this way. If the baby never existed as the result of a morning-after pill; it would make things so much easier for everyone to accept, as hardly anyone would know about it, and if they did, its not even a fetus yet.
This woman is obviously mentally and financially fragile. My point is , if she didn’t listen to pro-life people telling everyone that the morning after pill is inhuman, she probably would have gone that route (it is free) and we would not be talking about this tragedy.
Kelvin Grabowsky mentioned adoption. I know some facts about that subject, and future parents are not to enthused about raising the child of two dope users.

Cathy you got that right, humanity has lost its way.

Sorry, but I am an American and simply can NOT believe this judge’s ruling!!! I thought that the USA was bad in their judicial rulings, but, Canada may have beaten them, with this case. My problem is – IF she felt so violated by her sexual experience, saying she didn’t even remember it – As much as I am opposed to abortions, she could have gotten one. Now, I wonder was she drunk and had a black out? She didn’t really say she was raped, did she? If she was drunk and had sex, she may have encouraged the act. Who really knows, since she claims she doesn’t remember.

Bottom line – She killed her newborn infant and there is no way around it. She wasn’t deemed mentally incompetent – So, in my mind, she murdered her newborn infant.

Murdering a newborn is now acceptable in this vile hate filled country we call Canada. This disgusting case will now set a precedence that any a hole can give birth and then kill the innocent baby or should they make up a new word like a new born fetus. Rotten effing stinking country we live in where life has no value. Kill the elderly, the disabled, the depressed or mentally ill, as many babies that you want in your useless womb, have sex with animals, people of the same sex, children etc etc. This world must be getting real close to the end.

Judges should be elected. I guess if she had aborted it the day before this wouldn’t have been an issue. She could have avoided probation.

Just curious, but how are Judges held accountable for their actions/decisions?

Ron Joseph said, “Some people on this site are to blame for the horrible death of that innocent baby.”

How do you figure that?
commented 2016-12-02 14:01:17 -0500
Without natural affection for children, a perilous time bible 2 Timothy 3:2. How heart breaking that a mother would do this to her child. This child is now in the arms of Jesus, and, one day he will ask her about this.
commented 2016-12-02 14:00:29 -0500
Ron Joseph, she could have easily put the baby up for adoption.

Hide your conservative ideology if your standing in front of a judge, if not they will throw the book at you.

With incredibly sick people like that young woman
- and the majority of the left / socialists just as morally sick
- and with Muslim terrorists attacking everywhere

… is this world really worth it?

Someone hit the reset button!

Why didn’t the killer take the morning-after pill? Would she have felt guilty?

It’s BC, what more do you expect? Her mother should have done the same thing!

Why do we have elections any more , the leftard judges decide everything from baby killers to pipelines

This female is either mentally ill or a Muslim. She should be charged with murder.

The world is becoming overloaded with bankrupt souls. But Trudeau would gurgle “deficits” take care of themselves.

That’s what a child’s life is worth these days, 2 years probation, shame… a damn shame.
