Question of the day: Should dangerous offenders be given the right to seek day parole?

Rebel Staff

Canada's most notorious murderer is looking to get out of jail a little early. Paul Bernardo, a classified dangerous offender, has reportedly applied for day parole in Toronto.

So I hit the streets to see if you think dangerous offenders like Bernardo should be afforded the right to seek day parole at all?

Bravo Zulu – judges don’t grant parole; the Parole Board of Canada does. But check out the c.v. (it’s legit; I’ve met this guy) of the current Chairperson of the Parole Board of Canada. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harvey_Cenaiko

Don’t think for a second that board members (mostly ex-cops and politicians of one stripe or another) don’t have coffee with mob executive. Crime rules the world.

Of course, those deemed “dangerous offenders” must be given the right to seek day parole. Doesn’t mean they’ll get it. But if we take away that right, we take away justice.

Our justice system is really badly flawed. Carla Homolka made a deal with the Crown to serve up Paul Bernardo’s head on a plate so she could get a nice cushy life in the Islands married to her lawyer’s brother. They have three children just like the children she and Bernardo sadistically tortured and murdered.

Should Homolka have ever got away with that? HA! But she did because our system is so badly corrupt. Granted it may be the best of bad systems, but it is still a bad system.

Look at this website and decide if you really want all those deemed dangerous offenders to be killed, as some of you say. http://www.aidwyc.org/cases/current/

NO, Murders and rapists, I can suggest a suitable length of rope.

For once, the people you interviewed had common sense. This is a no brainer, the answer is DEFINITELY NOT, he can rot in jail, & his ex wife Carla Hamulka should have gotten the same treatment. In fact he shouldn’t even have the right to ask because, all it does is create more pain for the families.

I know what I would do.

I would say definitely no to Bernardo being released for any reason. However, if I was the father of one of those young girls he brutally assaulted and murdered, I would waiting on him to deliver the correct punishment he should have got in the first place.

The answer is no. I agree with Maurice.
commented 2015-07-03 22:33:54 -0400
Everyone agrees. Why should he be out?
commented 2015-07-03 19:50:30 -0400
This day parole thing shouldn’t even be an issue, because he shouldn’t still be alive.
commented 2015-07-03 19:19:16 -0400
I have mixed feelings on this issue. I do think that criminals should be allowed to apply for parole for one big reason. Prisoners without any hope are a danger to everyone around them and have nothing to lose by killing or harming the guards who work in their presence. I don’t think they should be granted early or day parole in almost every case but it gives them a reason to behave. My only thought against this idea is I can see mistakes being made or some ultra lefty thinking they best know how to rehabilitate a prisoner by granting such a release.
commented 2015-07-03 18:58:50 -0400
But Bernardo is just a poor, broken, manipulated and betrayed boy, don’t you know? He’s co-operating with the prison system. He’s trying to be rehabilitated… (cough, choke!)

Sorry, folkses… couldn’t keep that up with a straight face any longer…

Bravo said, "there is only a “justice system” for those with lots of cash. "

Or if you are gay, then your rights can trample others, especially a Christian’s rights.

I guess the since we have a lefty court system now, they won’t be concerned about overturning the original sentence “….with no parole eligibility for 25 years”. Probably cruel & unusual punishment.
commented 2015-07-03 15:22:40 -0400
Toronto was very loudly supporting the release of religious terrorist Omar Khadr in Edmonton, so they should have a sex terrorist released in their community … just to be fair!

Only if the judge granting that day parole is forced to have that offender over to the house for coffee on that day parole.

I bet that would change to odds of it happening.

My answer – “Of course not!”

But we are a lefty society now – and it is full of hatred for people like me.

The various special interest mafia groups attack at will with no danger of punishment.

I have lost all respect for the “legal system” – there is only a “justice system” for those with lots of cash.
commented 2015-07-03 15:01:49 -0400
Sure… Let him out on day parole but only if he plays in the park with the parole board members’ children….
commented 2015-07-03 14:23:13 -0400
I agree with Peter. That would be a big NO
