Forum posts for Robert Latimer Denied Parole

Posted by Katie on Dec 06, 2007
Ya, I also think it's a bit strange. It's not like he poses a threat to society or anything, he just has a fundamental disagreement with the board about whether what he did was right or wrong.

He's probably never going to feel the remorse that the parole board wants him to feel, because he believes he did the right thing.

But at the same time, a serial murderer might fully believe that what they did was right as well, and I definitely wouldn't want that person released.

My issue is that I don't feel that he's a threat to society, but should he be held to a different standard than other more cold-blooded criminals. My guess is that was part of the dilemma the board faced.

I'm not sure I would have come up with the same decision, as I do find it surprising and a bit sad, but at the same time I think I can understand why he was denied.
