Canadian Sex Killer to Go Free

(link is dated a couple of days ago, FNC reported just now that she has been set free)

Karla Homolka, reviled as one of Canada's most infamous criminals, could walk free as early as today.

Homolka, now 35, has finished a 12-year sentence for her role in the sexual assaults and slayings of two pubescent girls in the early 1990s and is set to be released between June 30 and July 5. Under the plea bargain, Homolka was not charged in the death of her sister, 15-year-old Tammy, who died in 1990 after choking on her own vomit when she was drugged and raped by Homolka and her husband.

Many in Canada believed she deserved to spend the rest of her life behind bars, but in a rush to get her to testify, the Canadian justice system agreed to the plea deal and reduced her sentence. ...


From discussion on TV, reports are that she has hardened in attitude vs. rehabilitated in any manner. I hope she screws up in some manner not hurting anyone that causes her to again be behind bars. Sadly, I think she'll probably harm again Sad

The Canadians let her go. They should keep her within their borders.

No chance. There are so many restrictions on her

that she'll probably violate the conditions of her parole before long. And as bad as she is, she probably wouldn't have dome anything if she hadn't hooked up with multiple rapist and ultimately murderer, Paul Bernardo, who will never get out. The rapes were committed in Toronto before he met her.

I'm sure you could find an American parallel or 50 if you tried Evie. Offenders who plea bargained their sentences down in return for giving testimony. It happens all the time on Law and Order (;-))

Even if only for this reason ...

In reply to: true thats why theres hope

... it is reason enough to never do away with the death penalty. In the end, even most of these sickos don't want to die themselves. So you offer them life w/o parole in exchange for their confessions. In enough cases we've seen that cases that would never be solved are -- at least giving the families of victims closure -- and have saved the taxpayers millions in trial costs and death penalty appeals. There is the incarceration cost, but I think in most cases we still come out ahead.

I'm not saying letting criminals go ...

In reply to: No chance. There are so many restrictions on her

... on lesser charges is unique to Canada. We've had our fair share in the news here that most have only become aware of after killing again Cry (and it looks like we can add another -- although not killer until now -- to the list in the Groene case X-()

Sorry, but I don't buy that she wouldn't have done anything without hooking up with this monster. You have to have some monster in yourself to do this -- and her own sister Sad

I think laws everywhere should be to make

In reply to: Canadian sex killer goes free today

sentences for such things, life in prison or worse. Who knows how many crimes such a person has actually committed? They were probably convicted from only a fraction of the ones they committed. Even if they committed only one such crime, they would almost undoubtedly commit more.
