I’m a senior citizen – 65 years old.
I’m really angry. It has to do with the death of Serena Vermeersch.
I wasn’t sure how to express the frustration I feel.
It’s akin to “ I’ve had enough and I’m not going to take it anymore”.
The preventable killing of this innocent young girl has upset me greatly. This, then, is an open letter to every MLA and MP in Canada. Do something. Anything. Forget for a moment that your first order of business is to get re-elected. Step out from the shadows of your party’s platform and help us out. Don’t blame lack of funding or police work. Blame yourselves.
How can any of you sleep at night if you don’t do your best to make sure Raymond Caissie 2.0 is not turned loose to inevitably do bad things?
It could be in your town. It could be your family or friends who are victimized. How can you just shrug your shoulders and say it’s the law? How can you justify it by saying a warning went out to the community? What good does that do? (Lock the doors Mildred they’ve let another one loose). They’re monitored? Unless that means there’s an officer with him 24/7, what good is that? I have not heard or read one report that didn’t say Mr. Caissie was a bad person who was almost guaranteed to reoffend. Even he didn’t think it was a good idea to be let out of prison. Don’t spend more money on monitoring monsters. He should never have been let out. Period. I don’t know how anybody in their right mind could dispute that.
My hope is that one of you or some of you with a little clout will take up the cause. Don’t let Serena fade from our memories anytime soon. I applaud you if you step up. Shame on you if you don’t.
