Re: Nope, that's not a sensationalist headline (oh brother)

It seems we have a lot of exaggerations in this thread when we should be having a realistic discussion based on the facts.

We have a woman that enjoys torturing and killing animals to the point of recording it and reviewing it, who's done this for personal enjoyment and not for attention. We have a woman that's stated she has a desire to kill human beings and collected items in preparation.

Now, considering those facts, should we not be concerned with the potential this woman has to harm again? Especially since a number of specialists in the field of psychiatry has stated that they are concerned she will harm again?

This discussion seems to be "solution suggestion" with an "insult solution" response, rather than an alternative suggestion. I personally feel that locking her away indefinitely is a little too extreme but I do feel that she requires the regular involvement of specialists in her life.

What "solution" is there? Canada operates on the rule of law based on fundamental rights and freedoms that are enshrined in the Charter and apply equally to everyone. Knowing this, we can't just make up things willy nilly and lock people up because they might happen.

So you're advocating that we infringe on someone's Charter rights and/or break the law?

Gotcha!

I should just add, mental health care will be an important component in her life and no one should deny that. Unfortunately, as I harp on all the time, the level of care we provide for mental health issues in this country is absurd. Locking someone away because they might do something is not only not the answer, but it's outright illegal.
