And yet, time and time again, Sanderson had luck after luck after luck.

He was wanted on a parole violation when he and his brother Damien unleashed an unspeakable massacre in Saskatchewan on September 4, 2022, when the boiling cauldron of rage inside him boiled over. At the end of the day, 10 people were stabbed to death and others were seriously injured.

But Sanderson – who died after a massive manhunt – is not alone.

From the Atlantic to the Pacific, the justice system is disconnected and much too accommodating towards repeat offenders.

Here are some examples.

Damien Starrett, seen in an undated photo, has been charged with second degree murder in the 2019 death of his son Ares.  He was eventually convicted on the lesser charge of manslaughter.

DON’T CALL ME A CHILD KILLER

Damien Starrett punched his one-year-old son Ares to death in 2019.

He’s a child killer, right? He also hit his 5-year-old daughter twice in the head.

At the Edmonton remand center, staff allegedly threatened and called him a child killer before he was released on bail.

His attorney claimed a guard told Starret, “You’re a baby killer (and) they’re letting you go.” You are a piece of s-.

What to do? Starrett was convicted of manslaughter in the death of his son. His infant son. Thus, the judge hearing his case reduced his sentence.

Judge John Henderson considered Starret’s struggles on Tuesday and sentenced him to seven years in prison – before cutting his remaining term to less than four and a half years.

He was sentenced to life in prison and released on day parole in 2016.

Now the 67-year-old killer has breached his parole and a Canada-wide warrant has been issued for his arrest. Corrections, oddly, did not post a recent photo of the killer.

Laura Davis, Brenda’s sister, finds this bizarre.

“So you would think they would really want to find him, because what is he going to do?” He’s going to run out of money,” Davis said. “What will he do to get the money? All he knows is the crime. So how do you get money when you’re on the run? »

In fact, CSC poopers even asked Davis to remove a recent photo of Mailloux from his Facebook page.

The judge called it a “vicious” attack and he was banned from owning weapons for the rest of his life.
