Trial Update

Well, the latest retrial has resulted in a hung jury. To remind you, this is the 5th trial overall, and the 3rd re-trial in 12 months of the man who was initially convicted of shooting Dad and murdering both the owner of the pharmaceutical factory where Dad worked… and accidently shooting his own brother during the getaway. The Crown prosecutor is meeting with the judge (and I think the defence) on Monday to determine if there will, in fact, be yet another trial.

For Dad’s sake, I hope not. He was relatively OK when he had to testify at the 2 re-trials last year, but having to testify at this one that just finished really raked up the trauma for him. He’s had to re-visit and re-visit and re-visit the events that occured that day. Surely after 10 or more years, he can be allowed to put this event behind him?

Yes, everyone is entitled to a fair trial. But this is not justice. 5 trials is not justice. Where the hell is the justice in making the victims relive their trauma time and time again?
