    Lawyer's confreres will pay for his sins - Winnipeg Free Press

    What are the chances he will be sent back?

    Justice that love gives is a surrender, justice that law gives is a punishment. An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for its breach is more so.

    Sounds like a miscarriage of justice to me, based on this brief article.

    Why, one wonders, did Canada allow him to leave?

    We can only assume that there were no outstanding warrants to prevent his leaving.

    Is there a move to extradict him from Israel?

    If his absence turns-out to be more than just a "vacation", then yes, one would imagine so. Though I'm still puzzled as to why he was allowed to leave the country. Perhaps his public anonymity with regards to this crime has extended onto all ports call watch lists. Strange, either way.

    We are often presented with seemly egregious outrages of justice that don't really make much sense, aren't we?

    One wonders if we're being given the entire story, or perhaps the original authors carefully left out pertinent facts that might make this story somewhat more difficult to come down on one side or the other.

    Outrage stories like this one make me more suspicous of the authors than of the criminal justice system they seem intent on faulting.
