How long do murder cases normally take to go to trial in this country though? This one seemed to take an incredibly long time.
Well Justin Bourque has been in jail for a while now and that incident happened almost a year after this one, so...

Yes, but why let something as stupid as facts get in the way of a good old fashioned lynch mob?

Well the fact is there's one single kid, inside the bus, waving a knife (not gun). And there're a bunch of cops outside, already pointing guns at him. Does it even warrant a shooting in the first place? I can see the shooting if he had a gun in his hand. And he was inside the bus at the time. He had to literally run down the step to charge the cops. And how about shooting the leg?

He'll get some more house arrest unfortunately. Cops get treated differently then the general population.

Why was timsdonut banned? I disagree with what he said (for the most part, I'm "pro-police") but this seems like another example of someone who has a low post count being banned because thwy are critical of the police. What is the minimum number of posts you have to have to be critical of them?

Is the sentence for second degree murder fixed ? Like X amount of years , once convicted ? Or does it vary and the judge can reduce it, even if convicted for second degree murder ?

I'm wondering if the general public is aware of Yatim's search history of "suicide by cop".

Wife says he is not a killer.
As if wifie's letter has any value. People are not always jailed to protect society, but also as punishment for their actions. This cop deserves to do some good time, and the othe cops that stood around watching the whole thing unfold need to be addressed as well. Oh yea the tazer happy cop as well.

Irrelevant even if it's true. It's the cops incompetent actions that was on trial, not the victims intent and final wishes
