  • Freakinoldguy: "It raises privacy concerns, it raises unreasonable conditions of bail and concerns with restriction of liberty," she said. "A municipality does not have the power to do that, and they are well outside of the realm of what is within their jurisdiction on this one."


    This isn't first time offenders FFS it's prolific criminals who are terrorizing a community. But what's more concerning is this twit actually claims it's a restriction of liberty. Well if our judicial system did it's job these assholes wouldn't have to worry about an ankle bracelet denying them liberty it would be the prison system doing that for them.

    Sadly this endeavor will end up in the SCoC and we all know how it'll turn out. Because, in Canada the fact is that protecting the public from proflific criminals has been replaced with criminals rights.
  • herbie: Oooh the town's so damn big they must've got a grant and bought ONE tracking device!
    You can ask anyone in the street "where's so and so" and they'll point "over there".

    The GPS bracelet will be put on the individual's ankle, and it will track them 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It will only be removed once the individual can convince the Crown, and the community, that they've become a "good, upstanding" citizen
    That's the problem there. There is no sentence, and is instead based off a vague platitude that's entirely subjective.

    People have ankle bracelets all the time, but they have a set about of time where they have to wear them, not "as long as we deem necessary". It would probably run afoul of section 12 of the Charter if brought before the courts.
  • herbie: Probably?

    as long as we deem necessary
