Duke of York Tavern shooter says judge didn’t give enough weight to his First Nations heritage

The heartless killer whose hail of gunfire outside the Duke of York Tavern in 2008 killed Bailey Zaveda and seriously injured four others says his aboriginal heritage should get him a shorter sentence.

Kyle Weese, now 31, is safely behind bars, serving a life term at Millhaven with no possibility of parole for 22 years. But he has filed an appeal, scheduled to be heard next month, where he contends the sentencing judge didn’t give enough weight to his First Nations background — and that should shave six years off the time he must wait before applying for release.

    Why are your Indians in Canada especially crazy, violent, and destructive?
    They have much in common with our blacks.

    The Toronto Star editorial rants today that in addition to the 8 billion Trudeau is adding to the already billions that indians get every year, they should get even more.

    Of course their Saturday issue was page after page, that we are all racist bastards against blacks and muslims.

    If he converts to Islam while incarcerated – he will hit the disadvantaged jackpot – maybe Turdeau will pardon him.

    When is my white privilege going to kick in and make me a lot of money so that I can be ashamed at my lofty status above our less fortunate (and less working)?
