(APTN News)   Remember the 19-year-old Canadian man who threw a trailer hitch from his moving pickup truck, killing a woman, in 2017? He is 22 years old now, and he will spend the next 8 in prison   (aptnnews.ca) divider line

Sentence too short. Way too short. Death is forever and these kinds of accidents are not dealt with equal punishment.

Don't throw a goddamn rock off of a bridge into freeway traffic.

Yup. Really, this dude should be permanently removed from the gene pool, either by isolating him (prison) or just getting it over with.

It was no accident, he threw it at her on purpose and laughed when it hit her.

Was he charged and convicted of a hate crime?  (Victim was native, IIRC)

What a piece of garbage. Just take him out back and impale him with a trailer hitch. He is useless to society.

manslaughter?
for purposefully throwing a hitch to hit a human I figured the charge would be murder of some sort.

pretty much any idiot would know hitting someone with a lump of steel moving at car speeds would severely injure or kill a person.

I don't remember, but he seems like an arsehole.

Court heard that he laughed and said "I got one" after the hitch hit her, causing severe internal injury.

He deserves more time in a cell, that was a hate crime pure and simple.

This was even intentionally thrown at her, which is worse

Lock him and the shiatbag Arkansas State Police trooper that likes to PIT random citizens from a few links down in a room together.  Tell them both the last one standing gets 100 million dollars and immunity from prosecution.  Put it on pay-per-view.  Feed the winner into a running woodchipper feet first.

Use the PPV money to fill potholes and plant trees.

Life in prison for this useless piece of shiat.

Judging by how fat he is, that's 10 years or so.

I have to agree. He's stupid. No amount of time in prison will make him smart.

this kind of behavior starts to lean towards not only putting jughead to sleep but also having a visit with the mother and father to test the new bats.

You know, I was just thinking that he should just be forced to wear the hitch around his neck for the entire time, but ruled that out just for it having weapon possibilities.

8 years? people get more for selling drugs. His sorry ass was laughing about killing this woman, 8 years is only enough if her family gets to beat him to death with a baseball bat after he's released.

Maybe not, but I'd bet you that his sentence would have been a hell of a lot harsher if he'd hit a young white blonde girl.

If I recall, he did make comments indicating he was targeting women

There's a better way for him to carry the hitch....

The Crown had wanted a sentence of between eight and 12 years; the defence had suggested four.

Canada is weird about murder charges, they don't have the divisions the US does - just first and second degree and that's only for severity of sentencing.  However, they also absolutely require that the asshole in question have certain knowledge that death is likely to result.  Nothing short of that, no matter how farking stupid and reckless, even shiat that in the U.S. would be a depraved indifference murder (and that's exactly what this was) will be charged as murder, but rather manslaughter.

I've never understood the relatively light punishment these crimes seem to get. You'll get a much harsher sentence killing a family member than someone you don't know.

I can understand* being angry enough at someone you live with to finally snap & smother them in their sleep.

I cannot understand the mentality, "Haw, haw. I bet I can drop this bowling ball through some random person's windshield from an overpass."

We've all been angry enough to THINK of the 1st example, but it takes a special kind of sociopath to DO the 2nd.

Besides, if I murder my wife,** she's not around for me to murder again. But, if I murder a random person, there are billions more once I'm released.

* Not do it, but understand.
** I do not plan on this.

Canada seems to have relatively light sentences for very serious crimes. Must be all the maple syrup or something.

At a time when the Church is responding to mass graves found at their horrifying residential schools, already known as an attempt at ethnic cleansing, this guy is getting off easy trying to kill a Native woman... Jesus wept.

8 years in a Canadian jail? That's like what, 3 and a quarter, maybe 4 US jail years?

I remember when this happened and it was horrifying.

fragMasterFlash: 8 years in a Canadian jail? That's like what, 3 and a quarter, maybe 4 US jail years?


And this is actually not far from wrong. Two thirds time to be served before parole if he behaves, minus time served ahead of sentencing.

Unless there's another precedential guideline the judge can go by that's more harsh.

I bet he only does four years.
This happened in Thunder Bay, one of Canada's small cities, and probably one of the most racist against First Nations people.

They've had inquests that have investigated all the First Nation kids that die there: https://www.aptnnews.ca/nation​al-news/​thunder-bay-inquest-into-death-of-stud​ents-reopening-old-wounds/

It's weird, the Canadian towns that depend on First Nations for much of their economy seemed to be the ones that hate them the most.

You sound like you're the "Anything a white male does is automatically racists, sexist, derogatory and other popular trigger words"

Maybe, just maybe not every horrible thing a white person does is a Hate Crime.  Maybe this guy is just a straight up @sshole and would of done that to anyone in the road rage moment.

If a Black, Hispanic or Asian threw the thing at her would you still be screaming Hate Crime or would you be too busy trying to figure out which ethnic group had suffered more before you jump on the sympathy band wagon for a week?

Also Murder Charges already carry the maximum penalty in Canada so labeling it a Hate Crime is just a fluff piece to make the Snow Flakes feel good while they watch the 6PM news.

Dude said after he threw the chunk of metal "I got one!"  Like he was skeet shooting or something.

Thunder Bay is such a dirt town. It's only purpose in existence is to make people living in Winnipeg feel better about themselves.

The Canadian justice system is far too lenient you almost have to get to cannibal serial killer status to get put away for any length of time and sometimes even that isn't enough. Not that long ago we had a guy picked up on firearms charges that was out of bail for two prior firearms violations but heaven forbid we lock up somebody that is just days away from turning their entire life around. This piece of trash threw a hunk of metal from a moving vehicle at another person and laughed about it like it was a game. That kind of person isn't somebody I want to share a planet with he was more than old enough to know what he was doing was wrong. Whether or not he knew it was a native or not doesn't matter but I'd be quite fine if we buried alive anyone that thinks harassing and abusing natives for sport is okay. Not that some natives aren't also asshole but as an asshole I like to judge everyone on a case by case basis.

article: 'The sentence also subjects Bushby to:   A DNA order. '

Wouldn't they already have that info on file nowadays?   No?
