The National Post continues: "... What was in front of the Judicial Justice of the Peace was a "blow-up at a school," said Hugh Stansfield, [B.C.'s Chief Judge of the Provincial Court.] "And a fellow that had a couple of convictions for drinking and driving, and driving while suspended, and not much else." He said the JJP could not have imagined that, "this gentleman was going to do the unspeakable."
Shoenborn went to his estranged wife's trailerhouse and, while she'd ducked out to do some shopping, he killed his three children, "Kaitlynne, 10, Max, 8, and five-year-old Cordon Schoenborn."
Shoenborn is still, as of this writing, on the loose.
"Mr. Schoenborn was not identified as the murder suspect for 18 hours, well after police were called to the crime scene."
One must wonder.
"In Merritt, police are warning the public not to approach Mr. Schoenborn, should he appear on a doorstep or in a back yard. In what might well be an major understatement, Const. Linteau says he "could be dangerous"."
Done is done, and no accusations will undo it. Our only question: What is to be done next? What about the capture and punishment of this man? He's sure to go to jail this time, and likely forever, but is it enough? Ah.... Already there is much heated discussion of Shoenborn being mentally ill, his actions 'not being his fault,' the insinuation being. And from there it's a short hop to wondering whose fault it is. Yes, the man will go to jail forever and a day. Unless he doesn't. It could be that society drove him mad, that his childhood was too difficult for him to adjust later to the world of others; and that because we, i.e. the government, didn't do enough to save him, he committed some heinous crimes which the medical establishment can keep him from repeating. A couple of years, a few kilograms of med.s, and out he goes onto the streets. If only we as a society had done more prior to this crime, if we can call it that, the children would still be alive. Shame on us.
Frankly, I get real tired of that kind of pseudo-reasoning. Let's capture the man, try him, hang him, and then go after the ones who have concocted such a society where the average citizen is bullied and terrorized into believing he/she is a criminal for not giving enough unto the Church of Social Engineering, a society where the Gnostic elites decide the lives and deaths of the masses from on high; and the people pay for it, and pay with their lives at times. It's the same lot spread wide across the world, those who know better, see more clearly, understand more deeply the darkness of the Mystik. Gnostic experts. If only they had more money to do more good, just a bit more power to do a bit more Good.
OK, I'm exposed once again as a Rightwing religious bigot. I say hang these bastards. Hang them by the thousands. Many thousands and many more besides. No, I'm not down on the police. They do a thankless job well and they are necessary. I don't blame the judges for the most part, they being constrained by the system and the times, they not being intellectuals of any real sort, not philosophers, not creative thinkers, not being much more than highly trained law clerks. We do have the genuine intelligentsia to look at for the problems we face. We have even the average person on the street who parrots stupid social engineering cliches and who perpetuates this evil by giving permission to others to repeat it till it is the public norm. When many say it, few object when others do it. A simple solution? Make it clear to them, even some poor schmuck on the sidewalk, that it's intolerable to listen to such vile social engineering and social gospel rubbish. For a reasonable world in a reasonable time, we must take the fun out of being a Gnostic. Let's be obnoxious (to a degree) with those who simply chirp along with the cliches of the day. Of the worst? Let's make some many swinging bird-feeders. Life still won't be perfect but it'll sure be a lot safer for most and less infuriating for some.
