This is one of the worst examples of injustice I've ever heard of.

Yesterday there was a thread about a deadly 2019 crash in Colorado:
4 were killed when a young Cuban trucker experienced break failure.
1.5 million people expressed their contempt via online petition.
The man, now 26, was handed a 110 year consecutive sentence.

Meanwhile in Canada, also in 2019:
Three years in prison for Kamloops driver who killed three students in hit-and-run collision

-Reid McKnight was driving at 110km/h (70mph), more than twice the posted speed limit
-After 5 seconds at that speed he blew through a stop sign and struck a car of Nigerian students
-Two of the four occupants were killed instantly. A third died ten days later
-The vehicle CPU shows he applied breaks only 2 tenths of a second before impact
-He then fled the scene and went home after failing to report the incident to police
-He was arrested, and later released on just $500 bail

W T actual F??
An accident earns you more than 4 life sentences in the US, and at the same time
LUDICROUSLY criminal vehicular manslaughter in Moose Country nets a wrist-slap
How connected must this guy be? Was his lawyer a hypnotist?
If this had happened in America, there would be cities burning and it would become global news.

We should expect less and less justice and in future those who are evil will be rewarded by their masters.

We will be patient and wait for justice!

Romans 12:19
Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.”

Clearly in Canada BLM doesn't matter.

Only if the victims were black.

First of all, the accident didn't happen in Colorado and wasn't subject to Colorado "minimum" sentencing laws.

Secondly, the crash didn't even happen in the United States.

Thirdly, the Canada crash didn't involve a commercial driver, and/or a tractor trailer.

While I don't disagree the sentence in the Kamloops case was woefully insufficient to suit the crime and conviction, I also see about completely zero comparison between the two cases other than several people dying.
