I recently read about a case of child abuse here in Canada in which a man was sentenced for ruthlessly beating and biting a 2 year old girl. Aside
from the disgust and rage I felt at the crime itself, those feelings were further intensified when I learned that the assailant received 18 months in
prison. You read that right. In Canada, you can beat a 2 year old half to death and bite them all over their little bodies, and walk away with less
than 2 years
Being the father of a 2 year old girl myself, I am completely appalled.
Police were called by a neighbour who said she often overheard T.G. yelling and threatening the girl, but he was more intense and aggressive than
usual at the time. The woman told police T.G. was heard yelling: “Whose house is this? Who’s the boss? It’s my house! I’m the boss! Are you
scared? You should be!” The officers who responded found the girl crying and circular bite marks on both cheeks and bruising under her eyes, across
her nose and on her head were noted. The child’s mother then showed an officer other areas of her daughter’s body, including her feet and
buttocks, that were marked with bruises, all of which were similar to the circle-shaped bite marks observed on her cheeks. “These bruises were on
virtually every area of body.”
Now today, day's later, I was equally disgusted to read about a VERY similar case in Texas, where a woman superglued her 2 year old to a wall and
savagely beat her and bit her. Prosecutors there are seeking 45 years
A Dallas mother superglued her toddler's hands to the wall, bit her and hit her so hard she suffered bleeding in her brain and slipped into a
temporary coma. Dallas County court heard the horrifying testimony Tuesday at the sentencing hearing of Elizabeth Escalona, 23, who pleaded guilty in
July to torturing her two-year-old daughter, Jocelyn. "The entire picture was very shocking," testified former child abuse pediatrician Dr. Amy
Barton, according to CNN. "I see a lot of children, and this was one of the most shocking cases that I have seen." Doctors found superglue and paint
chips from her apartment wall on the girl's hands. The mom had glued the tot's hands to the wall and beat her while she couldn't move. She was
rushed to hospital soon after. "I saw Jocelyn laying in the bed. She was facing the wall and ...," Barton said before bursting into tears.
This leads me to the purpose of this thread:
What the hell is wrong with the Canadian Justice system? How can a man viciously beat and bite a 2 year old girl and receive only 18 months in prison
because he himself was a victim of abuse as a child, and showed "remorse"? Yet a similar case across the border could net the assailant 45 years?
People like this should be put to sleep. To excuse such vicious actions on an innocent 2 year old for ANY reason is DISGUSTING. It's enough to make
you puke. I hear so much about how full prisons are in the U.S, and how the justice system there over does it. To some extent, there might be a case
for that in some situations. But these 2 similar cases highlight VERY clearly how screwed up we are in Canada when it comes to prosecuting animals
This is just one of many examples of how screwed up both Canadian law and it's enforcement is.
What are your thoughts? Would like to hear from you regardless of what side of the border you are on. Do you feel the woman in Texas deserves 45
years? More? Less? What about the man in Edmonton?
