As reported by the Canadian Press, Mulcair feels Homolka has “paid her debt” and suggests it’s time to leave her alone.
“If you’re ensuring the safety of the kids, beyond our revulsion at the horror of the crime, is there any room for atonement and forgiveness?” Mulcair questioned.
Forgiveness is not the question of the day. What is, is the safety of the kids.
But for those who remember this horrific case well, when it comes to forgiving Homolka for helping lure French into the car or being at home with imprisoned girls, or offering her own sister to her husband for Christmas, there will be no forgiveness.
She did not pay her debt to society.
“I saw those tapes and I saw the look in her eyes when she came out of court years later,” Tim Danson, the French and Mahaffy families’ lawyer, said. “The eyes were the same.”
The veteran lawyer feels she is “still dangerous” and a “psychopath.”
She is not somebody who has fully paid for her crimes and her role in her husband’s crimes, as Mulcair suggests.
Karla Homolka got away with murder. Three times.
Sorry, Mulcair, there is no forgiving that.
