Re: De Patie killer violates parole, again (The News, Nov. 9)

OK, so does someone in our justice system get the message yet? Darnell Pratt murdered an innocent person, and has violated his parole twice now.

Why do we pay taxes to support this? He cannot be rehabilitated. He has shown no remorse, and worse, has stuck his tongue out at the system by drinking, using drugs, and assault against fellow inmates and correctional workers while incarcerated.

My heart goes out to the De Patie family every time this young man is set free.

I’ve worked all of my life, paid taxes so that people like him can live in the lap of luxury at my and others’ expense.

I am now unemployed, with my EI running out, and unable to find a job. Maybe the money that is being paid to keep Mr. Pratt alive ought to be redirected to someone like me, or maybe I should just commit a crime and be looked after. I’d at least behave myself.

The long and short is, the justice system sucks. That someone of this nature can get away with what he’s pulled, not once but twice, please someone, this time, get the message, and next time throw away the key.
