Guest Blog Entry
Anyone is welcome to submit a Guest Blog Entry to torontomike.com. I received the following entry earlier today.
Andrew Smith a 20 year old charged with manslaughter in the Jane Creba case was let out on bail today. WHY?????? He was the person caught on tape escorting another person to a hospital after they were shot during the melee. He even acknowledged it what himself on the tape.
Within 1 year (since July/05) he has been let on bail 2 other times on charges for assault & major drug offenses.
He had no comment when released. BUT I DO. LOOK OUT TORONTO he's out AGAIN much like many others due to technicalty's or no room at the T.DOT. INN.
David Miller OPEN YOUR EYES.
I don't want to hear about innocent until proven guilty - that's a cop out. Maybe the count on him is 2 strikes & 3 balls & he's wating for a walk. Next pitch!!!!!!!!!
No other event since I started this blog in 2002 has struck a nerve the way the shooting of Jane Creba on Boxing Day did. Here's a quick glance at the guest blogs written on the subject and my initial response the day after. The location, the time of day, the holiday, it truly got people talking about our city, the increase in gun-related crime and hopeful solutions to the problem at hand.
Nine are facing murder and manslaughter charges and 25 people in total have been charged following Creba's murder. I'm not about to share your outrage that this one of the 25 got bail. All are innocent until proven guilty and all 25 deserve a fair trial. May justice prevail.
