Canadian Snowflakes Apologize To TERRORIST That Killed U.S. Solider – Reward Him With $10.5 MILLION
A former Guantanamo Bay murderer is about to be released and given millions of dollars from the Canadian government.
Omar Khadr was arrested and jailed in Guantanamo Bay after he was found guilty of killing a U.S. soldier. In 2010, Khadr pleaded guilty of murdering American special forces medic, U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Christopher Speer. He was 15 years old when he was arrested for throwing the grenade.
Two years later, Khadr was returned to Canada where he was meant to serve out the remainder of his sentence.
In 2015, he was released from jail completely after he appealed his guilty plea. He claimed that his guilty plea was made under duress. In addition, The Canadian Supreme Court ruled that some of the evidence obtained in the case was found under “oppressive circumstances.”
Subsequently, a $20 million dollar wrongful-imprisonment case was filed against the Canadian government by Khadr’s lawyers– they claimed that the government violated international law by conspiring with the United States and refusing to protect a Canadian citizen.
In 2014, Speer’s wife and another American soldier blinded by Khadr’s grenade filed a wrongful death and injury lawsuit against Khadr, afraid he would win some money from the government. Their fears were not in vain.
According to The Associated Press, Khadr’s lawyers won him $10.5 million in a deal with the Canadian government this June.
His lawyers argued that Khadr was pushed into the war by his father. His family briefly lived with Usama bin Laden and he was pressured into fighting.
Since when do we care about murderer’s motives? Sure, maybe it should decide the amount of time served, but a killer is still a killer. Not only did he get let free, he got paid actual money, too. Who knows what he could be capable now with almost $11 million?
