He killed three innocent persons.
He seriously injured a another.
He fled the scene of the crime.
He was travelling 110 km/hr in a residential zone. Max speed permitted is 50 km/hr.

What was he thinking? He wasn't.

I'd probably want to see a longer sentence, probably 5.

Ok, so what stands out to ME is that the woman's SON was arrested. WHAT THE???? he's with his mom downstairs in THIER suite and gets attacked by an insane assailant who puts a hole through the ceiling and defends himself and his MOTHER and gets arrested?

Also aside here, note who is going to pay for all the damages. The landlord, one way or another, insurance or not, there will be costs not covered. If any.

So much fun being a landlord.

And if I were that woman, I'd be moving, possible name change added, to anywhere but Kamloops.

The article does say he ...was arrested and released, pending the results of the RCMP investigation.
A couple of scenarios. The police will determine it was self defence and not charge the son, or there may have been issues between the son and the perp.

Yeah, sucks to be a landlord.

And what's with this Queen, ...to anywhere but Kamloops.
I'm sure there's a few neighborhoods in other cities, Kelowna, that many on here would not recommend.
As for the neighbourhood in question, the North Shore, I seldom go there.

She doesn't feel safe she said. And to me, if that was me, I'd not be in the vicinity of the prep. Or, "anywhere but Kamloops." There are jobs everywhere. What ever she does, it's transferable I am sure.

I understand.
I was going to suggest she move to Rutland. I've heard plenty about it. :biggrin:

The man who runs KGH lives in Rutland, so do many good people on this board.

But since he was behind the wheel of a car he didn't "mean" it ... since there was no motive it can't be tried as a criminal matter ... that's the price of progress they say, gotta take the bad with the good ... /s
