A Canadian man who claimed he he heard the voice of God telling him to kill a man on a bus or he would “die immediately” has been released back into the public.
Will Baker, formerly Vance Li, repeatedly stabbed a man on a bus and then severed his head, displaying it to some of the passengers outside the bus according to witnesses.
Well, time to celebrate Canada, your ultra liberal State decided that Mr. Will is no longer a threat to society.
Manitoba’s Criminal Code Review Board announced on Friday it had given Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, an absolute discharge, meaning he is longer subject to monitoring.
Baker, a diagnosed schizophrenic, killed 22-year-old Tim McLean in 2008. A year later he was found not criminally responsible due to mental illness.
Mr McLean’s mother, Carol de Delley, has been outspoken against granting Baker freedom, saying there would be no way to ensure he continued to take his medication.
She declined comment in a post on Facebook, saying, “I have no words”.
In a written decision, the review board said it “is of the opinion that the weight of evidence does not substantiate that Mr Baker poses a significant threat to the safety of the public”.
Chris Summerville, executive director of the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society, worked with Baker over the years and said he was “no longer a violent person”.
“He absolutely understands that he has to (take his medication) and has a desire to live a responsible, moral life and never succumb to psychotic episodes and not to hurt anybody ever again,” Mr Summerville said.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 1999 that a review board must order an absolute discharge if a person does not pose a significant threat to public safety.
The ruling added there must be clear evidence of a significant risk to the public for the review board to continue imposing conditions after a person is found not criminally responsible.
This is what liberalism has gotten us folks. It allows Muslim terrorists to our shores, drugs to fill our streets, and deranged mass murderers to walk the streets.
How a man that committed a crime like this can be allowed back into society is beyond my comprehension.
