Zachary Miller, the 10-year old boy kidnapped by known pedophile Peter Whitmore, has been found in Kipling. As of this writing, Whitmore is thought to be inside a house with the other 14-year old boy, Jordan Bruyere.
- Kipling. I’m starting a category.
- WHY WAS THIS PERSON OUT OF JAIL??!? Check out his history with the law:
“Whitmore is well known in Ontario for a string of high-profile sex assault convictions against children. He was first convicted in 1993 of abduction and five sexual offences involving four young boys and spent 16 months in custody.
Nine days after his release, he took an eight-year-old girl from Guelph, Ont., to Toronto, and was sentenced to 56 months in prison.”
Less than a month after his November 2000 release, he was found in a downtown Toronto motel with a 13-year-old boy. He was sentenced to one year in jail.” (from the ctv.ca story at time of writing)
See a pattern here? There’s more if you want to continue reading.
What do we do with these people? You don’t want them living beside you, but they have to live somewhere. Some have paid their dues and will not re-offend. Some have been punished by their time in prison but will offend as soon as they get out, like this guy.
Near as I can tell, Canada has nothing remotely like this. We have a vague RCMP website that sounds like they’re doing something, but provides no information for the average citizen.
Why are we so behind? Will this case spur us to action?
