A couple of thoughts on the Rahim Jaffer story from yesterday.
First off, Anita Neville or anyone else too stupid not to know the difference between what is a Provincial and a Federal matter, the entire thing was handled by the authorities of Ontario. He was stopped by the OPP, was prosecuted by the Ontario Crown, and judged by an Ontario appointee to the bench. The federal government had absolutely nothing to do with it, so if you are having issues take it up with the Liberal Premier of Ontario who actually has some say into how things are done in his province.
Next the cocaine charge along with the impaired driving charges were dropped by the Ontario Crown Prosecutor. Why, we don't know, but the charges were dropped and the matter is settled as far as the law is concerned. I say this because I have noticed more than a few comments in various places that don't just border on libel, they flat out jump right into it. If Rahim needs some help paying for his lawyer bills it wouldn't be hard today to find a few people for that very same lawyer to extract some easy money from with a libel suit or 2.
We do not know the reasons why the charges were dropped, and I hope an expanded explanation is forthcoming, but everything else to this point about why it happened is nothing but pure speculation. If the cops, the lab, or even the prosecution screwed up is unknown. If something was dropped in order to get a guilty plea or some other kind of deal was made is also unknown, but plea deals are very common and listening to the left you might be led to believe that this deal (if there even was one) is somehow as damaging to Canadian justice as the Karla Homolka deal was.
He plead guilty to reckless driving and the last time I checked that does not usually result in jail time. All of this running around pointing fingers and crying hypocrisy is nothing more than an attempt to gain some political capital on a news story, and an ironic one at that coming from the hug a thug left. Rahim Jaffer is now a private citizen and the opposition should be careful if playing this game. If they want to open up that big Pandora's box where spouses become fair game I hope that they are prepared for what might happen and don't run around playing the victim if it does. Heaven forbid that Zsuzsanna Zsohar ever get a speeding ticket or worse. BTW is Zsuzsanna Zsohar even a Canadian citizen, and if she isn't would the same crowd that is running around today condemning Jaffer suggest that she be deported if she was in Rahim's place? Somehow I doubt that very much.
More games from a party that doesn't care who they smear if they see some gain out of it.
Update: A couple of stories from Feb 23 that everyone seems to have missed.
