    20 years, $100 million investigation, 233 day trial and those bastards walked away free men.

    What a shameful day for Justice in Canada, I'm disgusted.

    Prosecution failed to prove their case 'beyond a reasonable doubt'...

    Unfortunately, a large percentage of the evidence was circumstancial and hearsay. I dunno, I don't like seeing mass murderers walk away scott free, but if the evidence isn't there.........:dunno:

    They also had a few witness's come forward, then recant or have selective memory syndrome when they got on the stand. I honestly feel they got the right guys, but the investigators and prosecutors dropped the ball.

    If the case was that shaky they should have worked it a bit more before taking it to trial. Maybe that's an overly simple observation and probably a lot easier said than done, but to see 2 of the guys reponsible for the deaths of 329 people walk away free men sickensme.
