A man convicted of a carjacking in New Westminster has been sentenced to nine years. This 29 year old criminal, of no fixed address committed the crime in December 2006 in New Westminster. He hid in the garage until the car owner and her son came out in the morning. He then pulled a gun and stole the vehicle. He was arrested later that day after crashing the stolen car.
What happened to the usual slap on the wrist because the perp had a bad childhood? Where's the usual lenient sentence because his momma didn't love him? What about rehabilitating him on his own recognizance? Maybe give him some money to buy his own car?
Where is that judge! We need more like him! Hire the guy, put him in charge of the drug dealer sentencing for the creeps who sell to children! Maybe the addict car thieves who try to run down cops. And the illegal immigrant street racers who kill innocent passers by.
Thank you Judge, for being brave and protecting law abiding citizens. Maybe he heard the public outcry. Maybe it's a start. Keep up the good work.
