hree people who were in the SUV that brought Boushie to the Stanley farm testified in court as Crown witnesses: Eric Meechance, 23, Cassidy Cross-Whitstone, 18, and Belinda Jackson, 24. They said their day began at the Red Pheasant First Nation reserve, located about 57 kilometres north of Stanley's farm near Biggar, Sask., and that it involved some drinking.
On the way back to the reserve, the group got a flat tire.
They ended up at the ranch of Marvin and Glennis Fouhy in the district of Spinney Hill, northeast of the Stanley farm. Cross-Whitstone admitted to trying to break into a truck there. The group then took off, the SUV's muffler dragging "real bad," according to Meechance.
Cross-Whitstone didn't know it, but Gerald was also a part-time mechanic, fixing up the vehicles of people who live in the area and even people coming off the road.
Gerald and Sheldon both saw someone from the SUV go into a gold Ford truck parked in the yard by a customer.
"We didn't really think anything of it," recalled Sheldon, thinking it was one of his father's customers. Both Stanleys saw the SUV make its way toward the shop and someone get out and climb aboard an ATV. Sheldon Stanley hollered at the person.
She said she heard Gerald Stanley tell his son to "go get a gun." She said Gerald Stanley retrieved a gun from the shop and she saw him shoot Boushie twice in the head. (An autopsy only found one bullet entry hole.)
The .22-calibre rifle, which belonged to Cross-Whitstone, was found near Boushie's body. It was bent out of shape and contained five bullets in the magazine and one in the chamber.
n that case, a reportedly all-white jury reached a not-guilty verdict in the death of Boushie. "There's a lot of issues in the whole justice system that we need to work on … I just hope that the same mistakes aren't made," she said.
The case carries echoes of the Boushie case. A man from the Red Pheasant First Nation in Saskatchewan, he was shot and killed by Gerald Stanley in August 2016. The jury in Battleford, Sask., deliberated for 13 hours in February before finding Stanley, 56, not guilty of second-degree murder. The verdict was described as an "outrage" and a "black eye for Canada" by Isadore Day, Ontario regional chief of the Assembly of First Nations.
But someone died just like a drunk driver killing someone its called man slaughter

Murder is murder ...Canada does not have capital punishment . do the math .We do have a 911 system though .RCMP always get their man . or so we are told .
It would be nice to at least be able protect ourselves physically
There is nothing in the law that forbids that .
Our justice system is a game played out on or in a court with a judge . I have often referred to it as the " just us system " and it is . The laws are made by the law society which we are not a part of . So at the end of the day we have one society imposing on another society which by the way is not legal . Any society can impose laws on its own members who wish to be a part of that society but it would be like our society imposing laws against their law society .
It is a court of law...not a court of justice.
