Two men arrested in Maple Batalia homicide case

82 posts in this topic

So far a couple of your opinions are 100% proven wrong:

1. fact: in first world countries it is more expensive to kill someone via death penalty than have them serve in life in prison. Its seems counter-intuitive but there are tremendous legal fees to consider when killing someone via death penalty.

2.fact: the death penalty does not deter violent crime. Canada's rate of violent crime actually went down once the death penalty was abolished.

You seem pretty opinionated, thats cool and all, but for your sake you might want to educate yourself on the matter. Fact > opinion.

What year was the death penalty abolished? Do you honestly believe that violent crime is still down from that year?

Not a chance.

Regardless if it costs a lot so they can exhaust appeals, it also costs a lot to house these scumbags, and knowing they cant kill again outweighs any cost

.People feeling safe > People not feeling safe.

Fact, you kill, you should be killed.

A hangin' needn't be costly, all that is required are twelve angry men, a steady hand, and a few feet of rope.

We aren't reinventing the wheel here.

Since there is a second suspect besides the boyfriend I think this confirms my suspicions that it was an "honour killing." We can probably rule out robbery etc so why would the friend be involved otherwise? She wanted to leave him and he couldn't take it like a man.

My condolences to the family.

You probably wouldn't have even brought this up if she was white.

It's not an honor killing. Just a jealous ex bf and his dumbass friend. Plain and simple.

Honor killing would be if her own immediate family was backwards and had her killed because she brought "shame to the family"

But she isn't 'white', is she?

Have honor killings been a recurring theme in the 'white' community lately?

You're missing the point I was making. There is NO evidence suggesting that this was an honour killing. The person I quoted is making a very huge stretch to fit the mold that this was an honour killing. Somehow convincing your friend to help kill someone means it was an honour killing which, quite honestly, makes absolutely no sense. If a brown person being murdered is the only thing you need to trigger the idea that this was an honour killing then that is quite sad.

The percentage of innocent people killed is extremely small, and although it should be 100%, its not, courts make mistakes, just like people do.

How does killing this one guy solve everything? What the hell are you talking about ?

I was talking with wetcoaster, who says it would be wrong for this guy to be put to death.

The death penalty needs to be re-instated in Canada, regardless of cost, we would see less violent crimes.

I remember seeing her in the diary of a wimpy kid. She was was pretty. All of my friends that knew her said that she was a great person but that most people didn't approve of her relationship with Gary. They dated for a LONG time. He started off nice and then later was viewed as a scumbag. He was involved in the wrong crowd and she couldn't get out of the relationship, even though she tried.

Poor girl. My condolences to the op and the Batalia family.

Following the incident, her father Harkirat had speculated that it was an ex-boyfriend, overcome with jealousy and rage, who was possibly behind the act. He had told The Province that Maple and her mother had been at Holland Park only days before the shooting and had been followed by someone identified as Maple's ex-boyfriend.

I think we'll find that he was "dissed" by her and cultural influences played a part in this poor girls murder. Who has their friend help kill a girl?

I say again, cultural influences.
