    Canada - Alvin, 66, & Kathy Liknes, 53, Nathan O'Brien, 5, Calgary, 30 Jun 2014 - #22

    We are on Day 5 in the trial of Douglas Garland, accused in the murders of 5 year old Nathan O'Brien and his grandparents, Kathy and Alvin Liknes in June of 2014.


    (image from CBC files)


    Garland triple murder trial learns of bloody footprints found in Liknes home

    [...]

    Proceedings began on the fifth day of the trial with CPS Detective Clark Budd, who was a part of the Homicide Unit when it was called to investigate the triple murder. Budd told the court that he found a bloody footprint found in the garage of the home that did not match any of the shoes owned by the first responders or Jennifer O'Brien

    [...]

    Gallen told the court that no shoes were found on the Garland property, but a shoebox for a pair of shoes that could have matched the footprint was found at the scene.

    She told the court that another officer purchased the same shoes so she could determine if they made the impressions

    Possibly surveillance where he may have made a purchase before the crime?

    Gallen testified- as far as she knows- police have no electronic confirmation of #Garland ever purchasing a pair of Delta 2 shoes at Walmart
    In the court of public opinion, justice is swift

    @cherchri54 I'm guessing this means she has seen video of him wearing them.. I am just guessing.

The People don't care what opinion the prosecutor has of the facts.

    I am still waiting to hear why a concern about unethical business practices is "petty". I see a problem with Alvin's business practices and would never describe that as "petty". Because the prosecution is willing to attempt to impose an opinion of the facts on the jury at the outset, I think it's also possible that the prosecution may attempt to dramatize other facts. I have less trust of prosecutors who are unable to objectively present the facts of the case.
    Re BBM
    This really surprises me about the differences between Canada and US attorney litigation. I am beginning to like Canada's methods because a lot of the differences help keep costs down and also can work to get a more fair trial. That should be the goal here in the US and often times it is not because if you have a lot of money you can win your case just because you got a good lawyer. I wish the fairness of a trial can become the most important thing.

    I almost could not believe this was even the case in Canada for this particular point because I have seen many US attorneys really try to sway the jury for their case. I dont know hardly anything about how Canada does it and found this point surprising and so I tried to look up about it and found below link. When I looked it up about this particular point I found something in there that seems to agree about this.
    Its really interesting and surprising to me and Im beginning to like Canada methods about this in trials.

    "Differences in legal ethics matter, too. In America, more than elsewhere, lawyers are encouraged to advance their client’s interests without regard to the interests of justice in the particular case or broader social concerns. American lawyers’ professional culture is unique in permitting and implicitly encouraging them to assert novel theories of recovery, coach witnesses, and wear down their opponents through burdensome pretrial discovery."

    Not meaning to over-post/re-post but "hopefully be a rescue mission" makes me so sad.
