Another example of why the YCJA needs overhauled.

On March 29th 55-year-old Antonio Lanzellotti was killed when the taxi he was driving was struck by a stolen vehicle.

A girl ,who was arrested and charged in the incident, repeatedly told police during a taped interview that she “didn't care” Lanzellotti had died and said he “was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

The girl laughed and giggled and said Lanzellotti “had to die sometime.”

Sounds like the perfect little princess doesn't she?

It’s the second time in as many weeks the girl has wound up in the Manitoba Youth Centre just days after being released. She got out of MYC on Thursday after she ignored a probation order, while wearing the bracelet, June 9 by hanging out with her best friend, a fellow car thief she was ordered to stay away from.

The probation order was handed down four days earlier when the girl was sentenced for her role in the fatal crash and then released.

The girl’s latest breach is at least her third in connection with this case.

A day after she got bail in April, she was arrested for breaching her curfew and disappearing for a day.


And by the way; in case you were not aware, the girl cannot be identified under the rules of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

Thanks again Liberal Party of Canada.

Poor baby girl, she should be released the judges house! See how quickly the judge comes around to thinking about letting the little princess out.

Don't you guys realize that its because of root causes that cause her to act as she did.

That's right Kai. She bears NO responsibility for her actions WHATSOEVER. Set her free! Kiss her booboos. Buy her a pony!


Last I checked we all have this cool thing called FREE WILL. We act as we choose to act and we should be held accountable for those choices. WHY she made the choices she did might be an interesting insight but it in no way, shape, or form excuses what she did.

Root causes, my ass. That's such a typically lefty cop-out. How can two people raised in the same house in the same conditions with the same opportunities turn out completely different? CHOICES. You make the right ones or you make the wrong ones but in the end they're all decisions YOU made.

People don't get a prize for coming from a crappy home and turning out awesomely... why should we be rewarding people who use their backgrounds as a crutch to justify their criminal behavior?

Anon, try to relax. Kai was trying his best to do an imitation of your typical soft on crime lefty with that comment.

The real sad part is that while he was using sarcasm with that comment, many out there do believe what he wrote to be the reality.

I think it is how we got into this mess to begin with.
