Canada made deported killer, sexual predator ‘our problem’: U.S. prosecutor

A convicted killer and sexual predator who could have spent his life in Canadian prison was instead back in the United States Tuesday for a court hearing, as an American prosecutor questioned the Parole Board of Canada’s logic in sending him her way.

“They made him our problem,” Niagara County District Attorney Caroline Wojtaszek said of 47-year-old William Shrubsall, who fractured one of his victims’ skull with a baseball bat during his spree of violence in Nova Scotia during the late 1990s.

“He is an extremely scary individual. He has the combination of brutal violence and sexual offences over the majority of his young adult to adult life. To me I can’t think of anyone better to confine for the rest of his life.”

The Upstate New York prosecutor was referring to the Nov. 7 decision by two parole board members authorizing Shrubsall’s release and deportation.

COMMENT:-

I would have thought that the US would be overjoyed to have an American citizen released from custody in such a left-wing, socialist, pinko, country as Canada and returned to the cradle of liberty.

I suspect that some people simply wouldn't be satisfied with anything.

He committed his crimes in Canada.So he should face justice in Canada and be punished there.

He did. He has been. And, according to Canadian law he is being paroled and deported. The US does the same thing frequently.

considering Canada is full of virtue signaling pinkos, they should've had a US prosecutor make a death penalty worthy indictment of this killer then Canada would be constitutionally forbidden from deporting him

Something is missing from the story, like is the guy a US citizen?
Maybe a left wing prosecutor wanted him here so the could parole him after five years.

I guess he didn't ask for asylum.

Not Canada's problem if American prosecutors are incompetent.

Yes the person is an American citizen and is legally inadmissible to Canada which makes him an "illegal" the minute he is no longer in custody (force majure would be a defence prior to his custody ending.

Sounds like Canada needs to build a wall, eh?

A free trip home is not a punishment,especially when that individual commits a heinous crime.

I know right? What with our lack of hatred, universal healthcare, more freedom, almost no KKK or Neo Nazis to speak of, better education, and generally much more tolerant society, it's a regular nightmare here. You definitely want to stay in the USA. Please encourage your friends to do the same. Thank you!

He is likely permanently barred from Canada, and now has to live in the USA. I would consider that a very big punishment.

Our PM promised the USA was going to pay for it....

Good. Mexico is paying for ours; we are paying for yours. Just send Mexico the bill, everyone's problem is solved.

He committed his crimes in Canada.So he should face justice in Canada and be punished there.

I think if you read the article you will see he was tried in 1997 and, presumably has been in prison since. So he already served 21ish years. He is being paroled and deported.

He committed a crime. He was charged with a crime. He was convicted of the crime. He was sentenced after conviction. He served enough of his sentence to become eligible to apply for parole. He applied for parole. He was granted parole. He no longer conformed to the class "persons eligible for admission to (or to remain in) Canada". He was processed for deportation. The Canadian authorities were aware that American authorities had outstanding warrants for his arrest. The Canadian authorities informed the American authorities that he would be being deported (they even provided date, time, and place). The American authorities took him into custody on American arrest warrants when he was back inside his native country.

What laws were broken?

Cool...seriously, I don't know why you don't get along with China, you guys have so much in common...…...

Executing a rapist/murder makes us have something in common with China? Sounds like a desperate stretch. When a criminal commits a crime he or she should actually be punished in the district,territory,state or country where that offense occurred regardless if that criminal is a citizen, immigrant or illegal alien.

Not when he has committed crimes that would normally land everybody else life behind bars if they did the same thing.
