this inquest jury is awesome.
SO glad they were not swayed by the arguments against.
Ashley Smith’s death was indeed a homicide.
No, no one actually tied the ligature around her neck.
But they did kill her.
They = not the Correctional Officers. They, to my mind =
Everyone at RHQ & NHQ & the Ministry & the federal government who chose willful blindness over responsibility…. special mention to Mr. Head and Mr. Toews.
Those who (mis)treated, (mis)handled Ashley as a youth.
Those who saw but said nothing. And those who chose not to see.
And a (dis)honorable mention to John Tarala.
