Link-O-Rama: Alberta parents aquitted (sic) in death of toddler

Alberta parents aquitted (sic) in death of toddler
Ha! Some semblance of justice has belatedly been served in this case.

I was outraged on June 3rd of this year when the Lethbridge Court of Queen's Bench started a second trial of two parents who were merely trying to do what they thought was best for their child. I stress that these two parents made no mistakes and did not do a single thing wrong, but because their views differed from the traditional western medical attitude of: "Chemo it, radiate it, or cut it out." they were first vilified and then arrested. Despicable.

The second trial has now concluded and finally the Stephans have been given a sensible verdict. Sure, they have lost not only their child and 7 years of their lives but none of that matters I guess, because the important thing was that the machine that is the Lethbridge Court of Queen's Bench got to keep grinding along. I pity the next poor sap who comes into the court's cross-hairs so that the machine can keep on going.

It's hard for me to say this next bit, because I'm keenly aware that this human being has lost a child, but in the article, the moron father hilariously said that "...the verdict has renewed his faith in the legal system and reaffirms protection of parental rights" WTF?! If I ever meet this idiot, I'm going to kick the living shit out of him and help myself to the cash in his wallet, but then before I walk away, I'll give him back a twenty.

That should restore his faith in humanity again.
