    BBM - I think he broke his own wrist by punching the wall in his cell and I see the prosecutor feels the same way.

    On Thursday Crown prosecutor Ashley Finlayson suggested in court Vader punched a cell wall.

    Vader admitted: "I got frustrated one day with guards taking stuff out of my cell."

    There is no evidence that his wrist was actually broken because he never had an x ray.
    The court is just suppose to take TV's word for it.

    Yeah, and yet everybody else is expected to be held to a much higher standard.

    Indeed. A silly lawyer who presents false testimony and ludicrous theories on behalf of his client risks his own reputation, and that of the law profession. Hopefully the law society is keeping an eye on the lawyer to ensure that he does not damage the reputation of lawyers - as that is a factor when practicing law in many Canadian provinces.

    Yes, I thought it was quite an informative article. Also interesting, that his father expressed his desire that TV be arrested, and warned people to report him to police. Sad, but it seems he knew his son all too well.

    Police constable debunks Vader's claim strip search was 'humiliating'

    A constable involved in the strip search of Travis Vader in 2010 at the Edson RCMP detachment told an Edmonton courtroom he was just following instructions from a superior officer. Const. Steven McQueen, with the Edmonton serious crimes unit, testified at Vader's sentencing hearing Monday that he and another officer brought Vader to an empty cell where they proceeded to "secure his clothes as potential evidence."
    They searched for weapons and drugs, McQueen said, then gave Vader a fresh T-shirt, sweatpants and socks to wear as they put his clothes in an evidence bag.
    Vader was naked for less than a minute in a quiet cell with nobody else around, McQueen said, suggesting the search was routine and requested by a superior.

    Yes it is absurd. But it only says he'd be eligible to apply, one can hope he'd be denied. His record for staying out of trouble when free is not good. And he has a history of drug abuse. To allow him unescorted freedom would give him far too much opportunity to re-offend or abuse drugs.
    I hope I'm right, that any application would be denied.

    MOO

    Oh geez. Please, help this family grieve and move past this. I can’t imagine how hard this has been for them.
