The Virtues of the Charter

The conviction of that girl from Medicine Hat who murdered her brother and parents to allow herself free access to her verging on childmolester boyfriend is a demonstration of teh virtue of the Charter. This morning in the Golbe it was revealed that certain tainted evidence (amounting to a confession) was excluded because of issues around the failure to ensure appropriate information was passed on about the Charter right not to incriminate oneself (or chat to the police if not so inclined to chat).

With the conviction now in hand and her Charter rights protected we will now be spared the years of appeals and debates over the correctness and justness of her conviction ... we can all happily say that she won her Charter battle ... but lost her criminal law war.

Enjoy jail.
