The defence, the feds and the Alberta government agree: Omar Khadr should stay in federal prison.
Omar Khadr has successfully used our lenient justice system to gain all the comforts and perks available to him. This is no different. Our courts have simply handed him a “get out of jail free” card but now he has chosen to stay where he knows he can get special treatment in the hope that he can go straight out onto the street from prison in the end. I’m sure his lawyers still intend to challenge the federal gov’ts appeal of the Alberta Court of Appeal decision that his plea bargain should have entitled him to be treated under the Youth Offender’s Act. Despite the flimsy basis upon which they won that appeal I am sure they have no intention of quitting now given that the courts are determined to turn Khadr into a poor abused martyr instead of the killer that he is.
