Alleged Killer Colonel Russell Williams has been reported to have attempted to take his life while in jail.
The former base commander of CFB Trenton, Ont., accused of killing two women and sexually assaulting two others, tried to kill himself just before Easter Sunday by stuffing cardboard from a toilet paper roll down his throat, a Kingston newspaper reported.
Unnamed sources from the Quinte Detention Centre in Napanee, Ont. where Col. Russell Williams is being held, told the Kingston Whig-Standard that at about 5 a.m. on Saturday, Williams used mustard to write a suicide note on the wall of his cell.
Boggling. We use the term “alleged” but the facts released publicly so far certainly hinder any verdict of innocence or wrongful prosecution in this case. We have now saved someone who most certainly will cost taxpayers over $120,000 per year to house, and thousands of dollars to prosecute.
How many hospital beds could that kind of money fund each year?
What do you think Canada? Is it time to start to reconsider having a Death penalty here in Canada for cases where clearly this is no issue of “innocence”? You may post your comments below.
