No bail for Canadian teen charged in Miami murder case

Marc Wabafiyebazu, the Canadian teen charged in connection with a botched marijuana rip-off in Miami that claimed the life of his older brother, will not be allowed out of jail before trial.

Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Teresa Mary Pooler on Wednesday denied bail for the 15-year-old, saying she is “loathe” to allow him to return to the custody of his mother, a senior Canadian diplomat who lives in Pinecrest.

The mother had shown she did not keep proper tabs on Marc and his older brother during their short time in Miami, the judge said. And Canada does not have the same felony murder law that Marc is being prosecuted under in Florida, she ruled.

“It seems highly unlikely were Mr. Wabafiyebazu to flee to Canada – where his mother has family, and his father lives – the United States would be able to bring him back,” Pooler said.

    Oh no, not another Khadr.

    Canadian??? Not so.

    Judge be racist!
    Here is diplomat mom, Roxanne Dubé. No mention of father. Having a non white son must be good for 5000 political brownie points. Good career move.

    • tom_billesley

      Will having a son on death row be even more points?

      • Uncle_Waspy

        Good call! Super-Jackpot points!

        • Was he an aspiring rapper by any chance?

          • mobuyus

            I’ll bet you rap music was being blaring from mom’s BMW to give these two turds some courage for the crimes they were intending to commit.

          • ntt1

            Just a side bar about rap any trip through the nearest reservTion will show that black inner city rap is by far the most popular. Choice of music for young Indians,it feeds their grievance culture I guess

          • mobuyus

            It’s the stuff that fuels black crime, white teenage crime and would be jihadis as well as a victimization culture that you will find on reservations. As a Freedom loving Electric Guitar player I don’t feel comfortable banning any music, however I would like to see this music (and the nitwits propagandizing themselves with it) just go away. I take heart in the knowledge that more guitars and drum kits are being bought and sold than ever before. An Electric Guitar and Drums are a lot more fun at parties than some attitude pumped idiot rapping bad poetry about a lifestyle he or she has never lived.

            Maybe, maybe not……..but one thing is certain: He was a good boy in the process of turning his life around. You can bank on it!

          • tom_billesley

            The defence has a problem – he hasn’t got a dead older brother to put the blame on.

          • Martin B

            Actually he does. His 18-year old brother Jean was shot to death along with a drug dealer, so he might try the classic “the dead guy did it!” defence. It’s my understanding, though I could be wrong in this case, that if you are part of a robbery in which someone is murdered, then you can be charged and convicted of felony murder even if it wasn’t you who pulled the trigger.

            Just a poor child soldier. He should be put up at the Hilton instead of the bad prison.

            Then sent back to canada to be freed.

          • tom_billesley

            … and given a book deal with movie rights

    • WalterBannon

      deport her

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    Blame the parents for raising deadbeats.

    A sound decision, Circuit Judge Teresa Mary Pooler, Good on ya.

      I applaud this judge and agree 100% with this judgment. We do not need him back in Canada. We have to deal with this Kahdr problem where Kahdr should have been kept in Gitmo.

    I’m curious — doesn’t the Dept. of Foreign Affairs play the leading role in suggesting/appointing consuls? A hornet’s nest of fifth columnists, IMHO.

    • Alain

      Being a woman and a francophone was probably the only qualification required.

      • ntt1

        Is she black too or just Too damn unattractive to attract a male of her own race?

    • I would say so. Then again, I suspect that applies to all of Ottawa’s bureaucracy.

      • Alain

        So true.

    • andycanuck

      Yeah. They’re usually not appointed by the sitting Government but are selected by the bureaucracy based on seniority and the like. (Including p.c. considerations as Alain suggests.)

      • Waffle

        That’s what I thought, but they’ll try to hang this one on Harper (as usual).

          Can’t see how they can hang this on Harper; she’s a Liberal through and through. She was a staffer for Axworthy then followed him to External Affairs when the Liberals took power in 1993:

            Maybe so, but the Harper H8ters are devious. They’ll find a way. Hell, Mike Harris is still getting blamed for all the evils that have befallen Ontario.

  • Please keep him in Miami forever. We don’t want the likes of him in Canada.

  • Clear Thinker

    Not to worry, many Canadians emailed the local DA about how the Canadian Courts would conspire to never send back this criminal. Nice that a judge somewhere has listened to the evidence and come to the same conclusion. Every once in a while when a criminal breaks the law, he or she becomes the one in a thousand who face truly, the proper consequences to his actions. Sad for his mom, but she made a choice, career or kids, didnt work out well at all.

  • cmh

    kudos to the judge. that little prick has no remorse whatsoever, other than the fact he got caught.

    • pike bishop

      The judge probably has to win election.

  • Maurixio Garcia Sanchez

    I just wish him good luck,if he shoot somebody in that state,maybe he won the death penalty.
