    I think that on Oct. 9, 2010 somebody was going to die or be seriously maimed. It was just a matter of who drew the shortest straw. Hard to say if that was Flynn or Neville. Such tragic circumstances of lives gone wrong.

    The good judge seemed to miss the tragedy that the taxpayers paid both to defend and prosecute the murderer. We will also pay for the appeal. We will pay to feed and house and probably educate this guy and he'll be out in something less then 10 years to take away a job from someone who couldn't afford the education he got for free. And of course I wouldn't want to forget the good judge's fee for services. "Justice" sure comes with a hefty fee and some people will complain about a $16,000. party so that the rest of us can go to work to pay all these legal costs.

    Let me do some quick math here, his looks like one of those word math problems on high school tests: "“This is a tragedy of multiple dimension,” Justice Carl Thompson said in sentencing convicted murderer Steven Michael Neville to life in prison with no eligibility of parole for 12 years." "Steven Michael Neville, 22, of Paradise, speaks with his lawyer Peter Ralph at Courtroom No. 4 at the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador on Duckworth Street in downtown St. John’s Wednesday afternoon after he was sentenced to life in prison." "Ken Edward Green, 34, appeared before a St. John’s provincial court judge, who read the charge aloud — second-degree murder." Do you think Steven Neville will have time to get his career back on track? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, ket me work that out now...

    I quote the Telegram and please read the words slowly ... very slowly. "That was the day he stabbed Flynn and Dwyer repeatedly during a confrontation on Carlisle Drive in Paradise. Dwyer was badly injured, but survived. Flynn, 19, died from a knife wound to the temple. The knife had pierced his brain." Repeat the last line seversl times. "The knife had pierced his brain." And for all that ..... I quote the article again, "Neville’s 12 years before parole eligibility will begin from the date he was arrested — Oct. 9, 2010." In other words this animal could, and most lkely, will be free in less than 10 years. Justice is a joke and I have no choice but to accept it. I have long ago given up hoping justise would ever be served. All I want now is to live in a safe city without the fear of running into the likes of people like Neville. And lets face it there are many like him out there. I don't think there is a chance of that happening.
