    After a long and trying journey for Tim's loved ones, on Friday, June 17, 2016, a jury found Dellen Millard and Mark Smich both guilty of first degree in the murder of a good and decent man, son, husband and father, Tim Bosma.

    Both Millard and Smich received the mandatory life sentence of 25 years, and both are appealing the verdicts.

    Bad idea to slag off a murder victim's family on Facebook for making a "money grab," when your old gofundme campaign is still googleable

    I wonder if ABro will deal with the issue of DM-positive social media trolls in her book?

    Does anyone have any idea what ABro is referring to in her tweet?

    Who had a gofundme campaign going, and for what?

    TIA

    That would make sense if, during the trial at some point, it was made really iffy as to whether DM was responsible or involved. But as it turned out, I think 99.9% are in agreement that he is a monster, having planned this murder, carried it out in cold blood, and then trying his darnedest to escape punishment for himself. I said the same thing when I first heard about the civil suit, in that it brought new meaning to all of those stare-downs... but for me, that makes him even MORE psychotic.

    Why should he be angry or surprised that the family of his murder victim are using every resource they can, to make him 'pay' and make him be responsible? Would he think for a moment that if the shoe was on the other foot, he wouldn't be doing the same? It's not like someone did all of this TO him, and he was just the scapegoat/fall-guy. It's more like he's thinking, wow, you nervy biatch, how DARE you stoop to hitting my family's pocketbook and get the one-up on me! What a truly sick, sick individual he is. It really makes me wonder what it is that RB knows about DM and his past that makes him believe DM is a 'sick twisted prick'. I'll bet there is a wealth of interesting stories there!

    Also, I have no idea how it works as to which city a civil suit gets filed in, but I wonder if the B family chose London since it is further removed from the crime city, and the accused's home-city, such that it might be it more unlikely to garner media attention when media saw the lawsuit? ie I know that reporters keep their eyes on what is filed with the courts in Hamilton, and they report on what is of interest... likely the same in Toronto. If media saw this lawsuit way back in May, half a year prior to the commencement of the trial, would they have bothered to report it? Could that possibly be why London was chosen? Would this also mean that any subsequent civil trial would actually have to be held in London as well?

    Sorry, I can tend to get on a tangent.. but further to the above.. wouldn't the situation be somewhat akin to say, a man who deliberately went out on a planned rampage to cause a horrific vehicular accident intended to crash and burn his victim so that he could steal something in the vehicle perhaps, and then take off from the scene before a huge fire erupts and perhaps erases some evidence.. subsequently get caught red-handed via letters he wrote, video recordings, witness accounts, and bushels full of circumstantial evidence.. and then sneer at the victim's family in court every day when they sued him for damages? Can one imagine how a civil trial jury might look upon the defendant if he was pulling those kind of antics in court towards the victimized family? Would/could such behaviour have a bearing on how much a jury recommended to be paid in damages to the family? Too bad we don't have access to any psych reports on DM, I'll bet they would be very interesting reading!

    I wonder if DM would have grown to be such a monster if it wasn't for the money. Money was a tool for him to attract followers, buy drugs for his followers, buy equipment for the crime. If he didn't have all the money, would he have ended up on the same path?

    I sort of think of the lawsuit aiming to take away all of his money as a method to make him totally inoffensive and unable to manipulate people, and access drugs. Without the money, DM doesn't have any power. In some ways it is right to take his money away because he never used it for a positive purpose.

    Indeed. It's real justice. They went to the Bosma's to take a mans truck for Free and now they have to pay with their freedom and their funds.
    Bet now paying for the truck would seem like a real bargain.
    Also the pain they cause extends beyond the Bosma family- so many people hurt including the community at large.

    I wonder if DM even had a clue that his 'friends' would have disappeared immediately, if his money had disappeared. I think (imoo) that DM has learning disabilities, and so I'm not sure that if he had been born financially 'poor', it would have made a difference to the outcome of his life. He prob would have gotten into just as much trouble, but in perhaps a different avenue. It seemed to be all about showing how smart he was, how much he could actually get away with, how stupid LE is, how easy murder is, and not necessarily all about the money. To me, it is a mistaken sense of superiority and intelligence. And the money gave him a lot more means to try different things to prove his point. I wonder if his mom always praised him for being soooo smart, even though he wasn't? He seemed to have been disliked during his formative years, by other students/peers.. maybe he took consolation in his imaginary superior intelligence. And it was easy to convince the low-lifes he hung out with that he WAS sooo intelligent (he could protect anyone from any possible consequences, right?). Would sure be an interesting read if we had access to psych reports, that's for sure. All moo.
