Decision not to try Pickton on 20 more charges outrages families

I believe this to be a worthy decision; as policy, I don’t see where you could responsibly come to any other conclusion. . He’s never going to see parole. Trying him again would only be a symbolic gesture, at a cost of millions to taxpayers. If the people feel that justice has been served, then let that stand. It is not the victims or their representatives that get to mete out what they deem justice.

If it were me? Sure, I’d be mad as hell. But, just as sure as you can’t raise the dead, you can’t punish Willie Pickton any more than he’s been punished.
