Subject: Canadian court throws the book at confessed terrorist
Topolino    2/12/2003 6:17:04 AM
Inderjit Singh Reyat pled guilty to 329 counts of manslaughter for his role in the 1985 bombing of an Air India flight (plea bargained down from 329 charges of murder). The judge, following the recommendation of the prosecutor, sentenced him to 5 years in prison. I am not making this up. Hmmm...let's see...5x365=1,825 days. Divided by 329 victims works out to about 5.6 days per victim. That will certainly strike fear in the hearts of terrorists around the world.

You've got to understand the Canadians to make sense out of this. Two facts: 1. Canada is seeing ever increasing numbers of south Asian immigrants. 2. Canadians are very protective of their wildlife, seeing it (rightly so) as one of their great national assets. Put it together and what have you got? To a Canadian, blowing up an Indian air liner is no big deal, because there will be more and more Indians. If Singh had killed Beavers, Foxes, Bears, or Caribou, though (and assuming he had no permits) Ottawa would be simply livid, and the guy would never see the light of day again. In fact, although Canada has no death penalty, they would probably have found a way to kill him anyway, perhaps by being forced watch "Second City TV". Either that, or he would have an "Accident" during a bathroom break on a remote strecth of wilderness road somewhere in the Great White North. The Mountie would merely explain, "It's a shame, eh, I told him, don't pet the wolverines, they're not friendly, but y'know he wouldn't listen, eh." Clearly, the solution is for Canada to classify non-Canadian human beings as "wildlife"- this isn't too much of a stretch to a Canadian. That way, we will all be afforded proper respect and protection by Canada.
