#GillesPimparé ≠ libération conditionnelle

Une crime tres malade . J’ai pris mes enfants à La Ronde il ya 2 ans . Nous nous sommes garés et sommes allés à la grille d’entrée , en passant sous le pont Jacques-Cartier . Il avait été plus de 30 ans que je n’avais pas visité La Ronde . Tout ce que je pouvais penser était les enfants:

Gilles Pimparé

Gilles Pimparé

Trente-cinq ans après le meurtre de deux adolescents sur le pont Jacques-Cartier, Gilles Pimparé, l’un des deux meurtriers, demandera pour la sixième fois, mercredi, d’obtenir sa libération conditionnelle.

TVA Nouvelles a rencontré la mère de Maurice Marcil, l’une des deux jeunes victimes.

Madeleine Hébert, qui habite maintenant en Europe, a accepté de parler pour la première fois.

Mme Hébert a notamment fait référence à une entrevue de Gilles Pimparé dans sa cellule de La Macaza en 2010 lors de laquelle il avait déclaré que «personne ne devait mourir, ça devait être une agression sexuelle. Nous aurions été condamnés d’agressions sexuelles et j’aurais été condamné à 10 au 14 ans de pénitencier. Personne ne devait mourir».

«Cette phrase m’a marquée, dit Madeleine Hébert. Personne ne devait mourir. Personne c’est qui, c’est un objet. Personne, ce n’est pas un individu. Ça n’a pas de personnalité. Qu’est que le mot personne veut signifier?»

Mme Hébert sera présente à l’audience de Pimparé afin que la mémoire de son fils ne soit pas oubliée. Elle lira une courte déclaration pour s’opposer à la libération de l’homme de 60 ans.

«Tant et aussi longtemps qu’il n’aura pas reconnu et assumé ses actes criminels et fait cette démarche intérieure, celle qui l’aura transformé en un être humain susceptible de réintégrer la société, je m’opposerai à sa libération.»

Gilles Pimparé peut demander une libération conditionnelle tous les deux ans. Il a échoué à ses cinq premières tentatives.

Selon les rapports d’experts, Pimparé aurait encore des déviances sexuelles et il ne reconnaîtrait pas ses délits.

#GillesPimparé ≠ Parole

A sick, sick crime. I took my kids to La Ronde 2 years ago. We parked and walked to the front gates, passing under the Jacques Cartier bridge. It had been over 30 years since I’d visited La Ronde. All I could think about were those kids: 

 

Gilles Pimparé

Gilles Pimparé

MONTREAL – A man who committed one of Quebec’s most heinous crimes in 1979 will request parole for the sixth time Wednesday.

Maurice Marcil, 14, and his girlfriend Chantal Dupont, 15, were coming back from an amusement park when they were attacked by Gilles Pimparé and his accomplice, Normand Guérin, raped Dupont before throwing the teenagers off the Jacques Cartier Bridge killing them both.

Marcil’s mother told QMI Agency she still can’t understand the crime 35 years later.

“Their words and their eyes were not enough to convince the killers to spare them,” says Madeleine Hébert.

She will be present at the parole hearing to make sure that her son’s memory is not forgotten. She will read a short text to oppose the 60-year-old man’s appeal.

“As long as he refuses to bear responsibility for his criminal acts and doesn’t work on himself to be able to reintegrate society, I’ll be against his release,” Hébert said.

Pimparé can apply for parole every two years.

Pimparé’s previous parole appeals were denied because the killer didn’t express guilt and was still considered a sexual deviant.

In addition to the double murder, Pimparé has also confessed having raped other men and women.

Normand Guérin has never applied for parole.

Normand Guérin doit être transféré en maison de transition à deux coins de rue d’une de ses victimes

Voici un suivi de la Commission des libérations conditionnelles du Canada “brillante” décision de libérer Normand Guérin a en maison de transition à deux coins de rue d’une de ses victimes…

Complice Guérin en 1979 dans le meurtre de Chantal Dupont et Maurice Marcil était Gilles Pimparé (je l’ai écrit plus sur ces meurtres ici). Gilles Pimparé est toujours en prison. Les deux derniers registres décision que j’ai de la Commission des libérations conditionnelles sont de Novembre 2010 et Juin 2011. Pimparé, qui est maintenant 57, a une longue histoire de violence. En plus des meurtres de Dupont et Marcil, qui étaient de 14 et 15 ans au moment, Pimparé avait été criminellement actif depuis 13 ans. Son évaluation psychiatrique en 2010 a révélé que Pimparé était encore sexuellement déviant et un toxicomane. Il avait un niveau de risque élevé de récidive sexuelle et violente. Le profil a décrit comme un psychopathe. Pimparé a été trouvé avec photos pornographiques dans sa cellule, la plupart avec une jeune femme nue posant devant le pont Jacques-Cartier (le pont où il s’est engagé et Guérin de 1979 meurtres). La Commission des libérations conditionnelles a conclu que Pimparé était réticent / à l’abri de changer son comportement, et la libération conditionnelle a été refusée.

En Juin 2011 Pimparé fait appel de la décision 2010 en raison de certaines erreurs de droit, mais le conseil a rejeté son appel et confirmé la décision 2010.

Pimparé est à côté pour examen en Octobre 2012. La Commission des libérations conditionnelles prendra sa décision en Novembre 2012.

Normand Guérin released to half-way house two blocks away from one of his victims

Here’s a follow up on the Parole Board of Canada’s BRILLIANT decision to release Normand Guérin into a half-way house two blocks away from one of his victims….

Guérin’s accomplice in the 1979 murders of  Chantal Dupont and Maurice Marcil was Gilles Pimparé (I’ve written more about these murders here). Gilles Pimparé is still in prison. The last two decision registries I have from the Parole Board are from November 2010 and June 2011. Pimparé, who is now 57, had a long history of violence. In addition to the murders of Dupont and Marcil who were 14 and 15 at the time, Pimparé had been criminally active since age 13. His psychiatric evaluation in 2010 revealed that Pimparé was still sexually deviant, and a drug abuser. He had a high risk level to re-offend sexually and violently. The profile described him as a psychopath. Pimparé was found with pornographic  photos in his cell, many with a nude young woman posing in front of the Jacques Cartier bridge (the bridge where he and Guérin committed the 1979 murders). The parole board concluded that Pimparé was reluctant / immune to changing his behavior, and parole was denied.

In June 2011 Pimparé appealed the 2010 decision on the grounds of some legal errors, but the board dismissed his appeal and upheld the 2010 decision.

Pimparé is next up for review this October, 2012. The Parole Board will make its decision in November, 2012.

Oh The Places You’ll Go

Ok, I haven’t added content since March. The folks at Newstext are going to stop paying commissions.

"La Chasse-galerie" at La Ronde

I was talking to my mom last week. In the wake of the Batman massacre in Colorado (and, man, that guy looks like a young John Lydon) she was saying how lucky I am to live in a place where that kinda stuff doesn’t happen. Say what?  We may not have James Holmes or a Luka Rocco Magnotta, but stuff like that happens fairly frequently here. It’s been just five years since the Eve Carson murder. Walking around UNC campus last week I had a jolt of reality when I stumbled upon her memorial garden.  Just a short walk from that garden a woman was raped last winter crossing in back of the Ackland museum. Chapel Hill had a mass shooting 17-years ago when Wendell Williamson opened fire on Franklin street.  The University of North Carolina law student, dressed in camouflage and armed with an M-1 sniper rifle and hundreds of bullets, walked down the street shooting at random, killing two people.

Still, I feel pretty safe where I live. I am not fearful for my children. I feel pretty safe anywhere really.

We were in New York City earlier this month. I took my daughters to a broadway show. We took a Port Authority bus back to where we were staying in New Jersey. The Port Authority at eleven at night is just as scary as it was in the early 80s, but it’s safe. You just have to stay alert.

And still…

I have a hard time forgetting about bad things. I visited my brother in Montreal this month. I took my children to La Ronde. I hadn’t been there in 30 years. I forgot that to get to the park, you leave the car in the lot, then walk under the Jacques Cartier bridge. Looking up at that bridge my mind immediately travelled to Chantal Dupont and Maurice Marcil, thrown from the bridge Independence day, 1979 (as it happened, we were there the day before that anniversary).   Gilles Pimpare and accomplice, Normand Guerin were eventually found guilty of killing the two 16-year olds. In 2005 they were denied parole. I do not know if they are still serving time.

And I apparently have a hard time forgetting good things too.

I took my kids on the Pitoune. It is one of the original rides from 1967, and kinda tied to the Quebecois legend of La Chasse-galerie. Standing in that line I remembered being there with my family sometime in the 1970s. My mother and father, my brother… and Theresa. It all came back. Except for the minirail I don’t remember too much from those times. But I suddenly recalled all of that very vividly.

Strange what you have in your mind, and what triggers can activate it.
