Cutting Deals on Bad Guys No Way to Run the Shop

It is not enough to know that once again Corrections Canada and the National Parole Service has failed the community by putting a dangerous violent sex offender in a Vancouver half-wit house. It is not enough to know that, of course, the maniac simply walked away and is now being searched for across the country.

What you have to understand is the complex and dire melodrama that surrounds a story like this.

The half-wit house should refuse this kind of client. We did for 10 years. Why risk your other resident clients and your reputation for one lunatic?

The answer is simple.

Because they (the half-way house) have to.

They are funded by government and piper calls the tune. "Take this putz or else" is basically how their contract runs.

What remains when the lights go out is how do you live with yourself running this kind of operation?
