    Paul Bernardo ex husband of Karla Homolka ?Applies for parole?

    Greetings all

    http://globalnews.ca/news/2089877/pa...o-area-report/
    WATCH: Paul Bernardo, who was convicted 20 years ago of murdering teenagers Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French, is now eligible for day parole. As Mike Drolet reports, if the Conservatives have their way, murderers like Bernardo will never get any taste of freedom.

    TORONTO – Paul Bernardo, known as Canada’s most notorious murderer and rapist, has applied for day parole in the Toronto area.

    Notices from Correctional Service Canada went out last week to at least one of his victims, advising her of his application.

    Bernardo was sentenced to life in prison without parole for at least 25 years in 1995, and was declared a dangerous offender for a number of offences, including two first-degree murders of 14-year-old Leslie Mahaffy and 15-year-old Kristen French, and two aggravated sexual assaults.

    He later confessed to raping 14 other women.

    Dangerous offenders in Canada can apply for day parole three years before their full parole eligibility date or after three years, whichever is greater.

    Day parole also means the offender must report back to jail or a half-way house at night.

    Tim Danson, the lawyer for the families of Bernardo’s murder victims, says he has told the families that there is no chance Bernardo will ever see the outside world again.

    According to the Toronto Star, one of Bernardo’s rape victims, who never got to testify against her attacker, expressed shock over the parole application.

    A letter from correctional services has instructed her to submit an impact statement by July 14 if she wants it to be included in the pre-parole process.

    Well lets do our part to create awareness.

    This guy should not be allowed to see the light of day for the rest of his f*****g life!

    My 2 cents.

    He won't get out. It has been said there almost zero chance.

    There is something tough i would like to talk about a bit, this guy as well as Charles Manson could be good exemple on illustring it. My question would be does Jail for these people serve as a "protection for society" or as just a mean of punishment. Cause lots of people would say he need to spend his whole life behind bar. Others would had just give the death sentence, period. But the fact is its 25 years in canada for a life sentence, before being allow for parole. So it mean by the law they are "ok" to let them get out after 25 (or in this case 22 for day parole) if they meet certain criteria. For exemple would they still be dangerous if they get out.

    The answer would be, some yes, some no. For exemple when you take the manson girls, lets face it, the risk for them to go out as old ladies and being a danger to anybody where almost zero chances. But the public pressure because of the crime they commited made it that some died in prison, others are still there unable to get out on parole. Charles himself really seem to have remain a nutjob over the years tough, so thus why i would not let him out.

    In the case of Bernardo, its somewhat delicate, cause what would happen if they let him completely out, would he rape again? Probably... Or could he had been "cured" after 22 years in jail? I mean thats 22 years without sex... l

    My debate question would be, could there be a chance to redeem some of the worst criminals? For exemple, 25 years is long, very long, most of them are arrested past 25 so this mean there at least 50 y.o when they go out. The question would then be, could we do something about them, instead of just feeding them in jail.... Life itself changed so much too in 22 years...

    Those tracking devices they use sometimes could be a good way to make sure they remain at a certain spot. I know some would say does a guy like Bernardo really deserve redemption? And the answer would be a big NO. But then who are we to judge, did you see him at all in those last 22 years? Id like to think there could be a way of redeem the worst kind of people, maybe i am just too naive. Obviously i am not part of the victim family, and if i would, i know i would hate on him and could never stand seeing him free.

    In any case, this is there job, and they will do what they have to do. But i really don't understand how the other half in this story, Karla, got out that quickly and redone her life like nothing happened. While he is seen as the devil incarnate. They where 2 in that story. And im sure she was not just that "little naive girl" , hell the first victime was her OWN FAMILLY.

    Hello all

    Capital punishment was debated in Canada and finally abolished.
    One of the main reasons the famous Coffin Affair https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffin_affair

    http://murderpedia.org/male.C/c/coffin-wilbert.htm
    The death penalty was abolished under the Criminal Code in 1976.


    Its reinstatement was debated and rejected by Parliament in 1987.


    In 1997, in response to a resolution of the Canadian Police Association calling for the return of the death penalty in certain cases, Justice Minister Anne McLellan issued a press release stating: "It is not the intention of the Government of Canada to reinstate the death penalty."


    The National Defence Act was amended in 1998 to abolish the death penalty in Canadian military law, bringing it in line with Canadian criminal law. Life imprisonment without eligibility for parole for 25 years replaced the death penalty for the most serious offences.

    In 1997, in response to a resolution of the Canadian Police Association calling for the return of the death penalty in certain cases, Justice Minister Anne McLellan issued a press release stating: "It is not the intention of the Government of Canada to reinstate the death penalty."

    I don't think he should be allowed parole so soon. We are too lenient in Canada. I have no remorse for serial rapist. The one thing that helps me sleep at night is the fact that in prison, you can be a thief, or a murderer and gain acceptance within inmates... However child molesters/rapists are straight up a no no amongst criminals. He probably gets his ass kicked everytime he goes to the yard and gets raped himself by other inmates. I think he's where he belongs. No probation, cuz I'm afraid he's gonna think "I'm here forever anyways, gotta make this day worth it".

    Three gruesome deaths and 14 admitted rapes and he is asking for parole I hope this animal NEVER gets out of prision. In the U.S. he would be locked up and the authorities would never accept an application for parole, hell, he would have been shanked long ago

    he applied for parole. every criminal has that chance. it doesn't mean he's going to get it. they still have to review the case and make a decision. we all know he's not going to get parole

    As Booker L points out, Bernardo was declared a "dangerous offender", which means that his sentence can be extended indefinitely. I would guess that even if the psychiatrists of Corrections Canada said that he was no longer dangerous, it would be politically infeasible to ever let him roam free.

    Hello all


    Difference between Karla Homolka and Paul Bernardo ,she did all her time ,never ask for parole .


    Cheers

    No, Homolka got off lightly because the prosecutor made a deal with her before the full extent of her involvement was known. She got a much lighter sentence than Bernardo and nobody ever bothered to classify her as a "dangerous offender". By the time she was eligible to apply for parole, it was known that she had been an willing participant in the couple's crimes. She was smart to keep a low profile by not trying for an early release at that point.
