Convicted killer Karla Homolka is a totally free woman today; she’s free to travel around the country, free to associate with children and free to contact her ex-husband and fellow monster Paul Bernardo.
Isn’t that a comforting thought?
And we have a Quebec Judge, Justice James Brunton, to thank for this state of affairs.
Brunton yesterday removed all the restrictions imposed on Homolka last June when she was officially released from prison.
“The possibility that (Homolka) might reoffend one day cannot be completely eliminated,” he wrote in his ruling, “However . . . on balance of probabilities . . . this is unlikely to occur. She does not represent a real and imminent danger. . .”
Even though Homolka is a depraved, psychotic, cold-blooded child-killer, Brunton says she is no “real threat”.
Well if that’s the case, Brunton shouldn’t be afraid to walk the walk.
I propose he voluntarily take his little angel Karla into his home for the next year or so, just to show us how confident he is in his judgment.
What’s more, he should put Karla in charge of babysitting his kids. After all, on the “balance of probabilities” she won’t murder them.
Only when Brunton takes up my suggestion, will I buy his argument, otherwise I’d advise all Canadians to beware: a wolf has just been let loose among the sheep.
