Convicted animal killer to be released in months

A convicted animal killer is set to be released from jail in two months, and there's disturbing evidence that the former SFU student fantasized about killing humans.

A 22-year-old former Simon Fraser University student who killed animals and allegedly fantasized about murdering homeless people will be released from custody in just two months.

Kayla Bourque was sentenced to eight months in jail this week after pleading guilty to injuring an animal, causing unnecessary suffering and pain to an animal and possession of a weapon, but authorities fear she may be capable of much worse.

Search warrant documents obtained by CTV News contain pages of police evidence suggesting Bourque also fantasized about killing human beings since childhood.

She allegedly told friends she wanted "to get a gun and kill homeless people" as well as "kill her mother and younger brother," according to the documents.

As a student, Bourque took a class with criminology professor Robert Gordon, who said she took an interest in serial killers.

"What we had here was arguably a serial killer in the making," Gordon said. "It was an outstanding case, probably the worst one I've ever come across."

Authorities were eventually alerted to her behaviour in March by a classmate, and a search warrant was executed at her university residence.

During the search, officers found what they describe as a "kill kit containing a knife, syringe, restraints, black gloves and a demon mask.

The also seized a laptop, three USB storage devices and a binder containing depictions of sexual homicide, dismemberment, serial killers and a tortured cat.

Bourque has already served six months in custody, so will be out in two - though her release will be highly supervised.

The judge in her case imposed an extensive probation order with 46 conditions, including that she stay away from animals, keep off the internet and not keep weapons. She also can't have anything considered a restraining device.

The judge said that, given the extreme concern, Bourque could be supervised the rest of her life.

Jesus, I don't even recall hearing about this back then.

She should clearly be in a maximum security psychiatric hospital and not even be close to be considered to being out in public.

I just don't understand how, in this day and age, we are so seriously deprived of good mental health care. There is no excuse for people not to be institutionalized if they pose a serious risk to others as well as themselves.

Here's some more insight into it:

Kayla Bourque is a 22-year-old BC resident who enjoys inflicting suffering on others. She tortured to death her family dog and pet cat, for which she is doing an absurdly short stretch in jail. She has fantasized about killing homeless people, and was found on her arrest to have a “murder kit” in her possession—syringes, a knife, a mask, and restraining straps.

Judge Malcolm MacLean called Kayla Bourque a “psychopathic and narcissistic” “sexual sadist” who’s obsessed with gore and violence and has shown no guilt or remorse.

…”She was intelligent and articulate and preoccupied with inflicting harm and pain on others,” said MacLean.

He said Bourque showed no empathy and psychiatric reports showed she was a sexual sadist with “multiple sexual deviations.”

She suffers from a number of personality disorders, including psychopathology and narcissism, and “felt no guilt, shame or remorse.”

He said she will likely require supervision for the rest of her life and she “presents a moderate level of treatability,” but her rehabilitation has less likelihood of success if voluntary.

“She’s at a moderate to high risk to harm others,” particularly children, the elderly and the disabled, said MacLean.

Under the BC Mental Health Act, a “person with a mental disorder” can be involuntarily confined in a psychiatric institution. Here’s the definition:

“person with a mental disorder” means a person who has a disorder of the mind that requires treatment and seriously impairs the person’s ability

(a) to react appropriately to the person’s environment, or

(
B)
to associate with others;

But, incredibly, the psychiatrists on the case will apparently not certify her as such. She will be walking the streets in a mere few weeks, looking for prey.

Bourque was a Romanian orphan for the first crucial eight months of her life in 1990. Conditions in those state orphanages were appalling, and the healthy and rapid infant development that arises from bonding was likely stunted. It is perhaps not all that surprising that Bourque cannot form normal relationships. She is a deformed and dangerous person, but she was likely made that way.

Nevertheless, to know all is not to forgive all, and certainly not to permit all. Bourque is a threat to everyone around her. Permanent institutionalization at Her Majesty’s pleasure would seem the obvious, socially responsible course to take.

The DSM-IV, the psychiatrist’s working manual, is a vast compendium of alleged “disorders” that in theory, at least, permits the psychiatrization of almost anyone who doesn’t fit a narrow definition of “normal.” It offers cover for the institutionalization of people who talk back to authority and for the incarceration of drama queens. But somehow, in this instance, it has failed to function.

So here is the bottom line. After all the hand-wringing is over, a psychopath will soon be terrorizing society. Yet there is nothing to be done, we are told, except to impose onerous parole conditions on an apparently bright and inventive young woman, and follow her around at great expense for the rest of her life.

This is, to use a technical term, madness.

Government funding has been slashed .. it is a lot more important we get the Grey Cup soon, and embellish the bank accounts of the 1%, than we try to deal with "social" problems ..

There is money in prisons, where almost "slave labor" can produce at a level to compete with Le Chine .. our new "manufacturing class" in North America .. "prison labor" .. talk about crimes against humanity .. the "War Against Drugs" .. better we fund that

This poor girl is ill, and needs treatment .. legalize pot and have lots of money to deal with such emotional conditioning ..

I've read about stuff like this before - there's no curing her. You can put her through therapy, yeah, but chances are it's safer to have her under administration/surveillance at all times.

She should be deprived of all humanity and stripped of rights because she killed an animal. Ship her off to Gitmo.

If she's truly psychopathic, putting her through treatment will actually make it worse. Just allows psychopaths to learn new ways of manipulating people.

Locking people up and pumping them full of drugs hasn't proven to be effectual in many cases. Out patient therapy with strict conditions seems to be appropriate in this case,

Is it wrong that I hoped she would, in fact, go after the homeless so that she might leave dogs and cats alone?
