  1. They are concerned he may reoffend and maybe be a public safety concern!! They why in the hell do they recommend him to be released on bail. How asinine are the prosecutors in a Tbay. Hope he comes back to Tbay and pays the prosecutor’s house a visit.

    1. Released on bail and to return back to reserve he will jot be doung anything in Thunder Bay that way.

  2. Why is he not given a paint brush and paint and be made to repaint the entire wall he vandalized. Of course he should have to buy his own supplies same goes for the window he smashed . These creeps get off way to easy no wander they keep reoffending!

  3. So somebody has to clean up his dirty work? He should have been remanded into custody and then under police escort, go back and start cleaning up his crime spree.

  4. Is it gang related… this graffiti look more like *tags*. If anyone knows what that is. Or is it just this dude vandalizing for no apparent messages to be s3nt?
