Several residents of a North York housing complex watched as a teenage boy was stripped down to his underwear and slowly beaten to death Friday night, but they say they didn't intervene because it didn't look that serious and violence is so common in the area...
One man, who was walking by, saw the fight and pulled out his cellphone to call 911, but several of the assailants threatened him so he put his phone away and went home.
CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH AN INDIVIDUAL NEEDS RESTRICTED FIREARMS OR PROHIBITED HANDGUNS FOR THE PURPOSE OF SECTION 20 OF THE ACT
Protection of Life
2. For the purpose of section 20 of the Act, the circumstances in which an individual needs restricted firearms or prohibited handguns to protect the life of that individual or of other individuals are where
(a) the life of that individual, or other individuals, is in imminent danger from one or more other individuals;
(b) police protection is not sufficient in the circumstances; and
(c) the possession of a restricted firearm or prohibited handgun can reasonably be justified for protecting the individual or other individuals from death or grievous bodily harm.
Hutchison is often asked about her feelings towards Aldridge. "I have forgiven him, although I was never angry to begin with," she says. "All along, I've been much more concerned with the root causes of the behaviour rather than the behaviour itself." In a way, she says, her lack of rancour towards Aldridge has forced him to confront his actions, rather than simply becoming d efensive.
Her wish is simple: that he's learned from his mistakes and will live a productive life when he gets out of jail. "I'm not a poster person for an ultra-liberal point of view about the justice system, but in this particular situation, with this particular person, I have this view."
Aldridge is "doing everything right" at Matsqui, according to Hutchison-he's keeping a low profile, works out, has signed up for a few courses and appreciates his family more. Although he can apply for day parole in February, she doubts he will. "He's having a hard time accepting [that I forgive him], so until he does that and forgives himself, it's pretty hard for him to move on."
