Preferential treatment?

To the editor

I am growing very tired of not allowing posts or comments about when the police are found guilty of crimes and caught in very dishonourable conduct.

Why has allowed comments on other legal issues, but not these ones?

I am outraged at the very light sentence of this criminal and find the defence counsel’s statements about the so-called hard life of former OPP officer Darryl Storey incredibly egregious.

Federal time of two years means he can apply for parole in just four months and full parole at eight months and just have 16 months of community supervision.

Mr. Storey’s sentence will end on Jan 19, 2015.

No probation order can be given as he was given two years federally.

A five-year driving ban is still way too light and should have been life. When will the Veneruzzo family’s sentence end?

At least he still has a life and liberty and future employment opportunities once he gets his criminal pardon, a process in which those convicted of crimes can pass police background checks.

The first rule in the administration of justice is never forgetting the victim. It would seem that the sentence given to Mr. Storey was in his best interest not that of the greater society.

And a final flagrant insult to the Veneruzzos.

Mr. Storey was not placed in handcuffs by Thunder Bay Police while being lead out of the courthouse. Talk about preferential treatment by TBPS. I don't recall any of the KI-6 not in handcuffs when they were lead out by city police department.

Well-said Jon! p.s. in addition to not being in handcuffs when he was escorted out of the court house, he got to ride 'shotgun' in the police cruiser.

Thank you, Jon your expression of disgust with the outcome is appreciated, we felt there was no other option, he could have applead anything else and would have been released and continued getting paid for another year, 4 years is long enough...

Police ALL feel like they're BETTER than the rest of us simple sheeples.
