Police seek murderer who fled while on three-day pass


www.ctv.ca

Police are searching for a convicted murderer who never returned from a day pass from a minimum-security prison near Gravenhurst, Ont.

Ashley Brent Crawford, 30, was on a three-day, unescorted day pass from Beaver Creek Institution but failed to report back Friday night.

Ontario Provincial Police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for Crawford. They said he has friends in the Pembroke, Brighton and Trenton areas and suspect he may contact them.

They are asking the public for help in finding Crawford, but warn that anyone who comes in contact with him that he is considered dangerous.

My first question, what was this murderer doing out on a "3 day pass"? When I hear about stuff like this it reminds me how messed up Canada's judicial system is.

I will admit I do not know this guy and do not know for sure he committed the crime he was accused of, but that is a whole other topic. I never knew people convicted of murder were allowed out on any type of pass let alone 3 days at a time.

I think it is time for Canadian officials to review their criteria on who they allow to leave prison unescorted for days at a time. I imagine someone is going to take the fall for this. With an election coming up Harper will need to distance himself from this and speak out against it.

...........................Wow even after just reading the short link I can't believe they let him out on a 3 day furlough. Hes serving a life sentence for fu@Ks sake. Furthermore how do you kill somebody in a manner as he did and end up in a minimum sec. prison to boot? ( I may have answered my own question there). All I can say is that I wish I had his lawyer and I hope he is apprehended.

Having spent some time in the prison system I am just baffled by this. Even more so the whole furlough process. I mean medical issues aside I believe that they should not be issued and even then under strict regulations and circumstances.

I guess this guys family or he himself have some money and/or a super slick lawyer. Either way this is just .....................

I hope they catch this guy, or maybe he will turn himself in. I would hope that a family member might even turn him in. If you ask me he is pretty lucky, he is in jail for murder and manages to get a 3 day pass then disappears. He won't be getting any more passes once they catch him, at least I hope not

Just goes to show you the effects of a liberal judicial system. One run by persons who believe that no matter the crime, the criminal has rights, can be rehabilitated, blah, blah, blah.


Murderers should be tried and if found guilty, eliminated from the face of the earth. The only justification for killing another human being is self defense or the defense of another whose life was in danger.

This is what happens when activist judges take the bench!

That is well said. I believe we should treat the prisoners humanely, but there must be a balance. There is no logic in giving a convicted murderer unsupervised leave. I personally don't have a problem if they get an escort if a family member is on their death bed, but part of me wants to say "if you do the crime, do the time" and I don't want to pay for his leisure activities with my tax dollars.

It is not sub par or improper at all. I am glad you posted it. It is only right that they put this guy back in jail.
