Wouldn't hurt to let Olivia know about your disgust for this hurtbag. But current Attorney General should be good to, they run the justice system. I've written them before on street racing and you get some BS canned response from some zit-face intern but heres the online form to flood them with your democratic right to question elected officials.

This is what you get for living in a country like Canada. People are as far from candid as can be. Nobody wants to be confrontational and aggressive about anything because if you are then you get trashed by everybody and their uncle for being politically incorrect and/or get slurs hurled at you. The most people over here will do is write letters or sign online petitions which do less than sweet ****all.

Will this prick get away with this? Of course he will. He's got money, connections and political pull. You don't have to live in Canada to get away with all that under your belt. There's no way this guy will get within chucking distance of a jail or prison. However, if he lived in some other say somewhat borderline 3rd world country he'd live in mortal fear of getting pumped with lead which is what he deserves.

But hey it's not all bad up here. Non-confrontational equates to lots of smiles and friendly gestures and the occasionaly helping hand. That's what we chose and have to live with.

They should have charged him the street racing as well, because of the tires screeching, hopping the curb, driving the wrong direction, bouncing a human being off a mailbox, and running a human over.

I guess we have an epidemic now. Let’s pass a law that if a Black Saabs runs over a cyclist, the Saab’s owner’s house should be crushed.

The Moron Car Crusher ..... Province will `crush your car (and) the parts,' racers told. Souped-up vehicle can be seized before it hits the road, Bryant says

This really makes be sick.
Michael Bryant charged in cyclist's death

…………….…. He’s going to get away with bloody murder for sure.

That cocksucker banned pitbulls, too.
I guarantee his defense will be something about how the deranged cyclist assaulted him first and that he feared for his own safety or some shit. The cyclist's friends' comments made him seem like he was/could have been unstable...
Given who he is and knows, he'll probably walk out of this with a slap on the wrist.

hes charged with criminal negligence causing death. Hes not getting off that easy anymore .. good.

There is video of the surveillance somewhere. If the cyclist threatened Bryant with his bike lock or anything of that nature he might get off with a lot less.

Wow... talk about guilty by suspicion.

Even before today, when they said that the cyclist was known to the cops as a basket case, an hour before the death having been escorted drunk out of his gf's house on a domestic abuse call, I thought there was way more to the story.

THE GUY WAS HOLDING ON TO THE CAR!!! What the **** was the driver supposed to do? I'm not a small boy but if some douchebag is trying to get into my car with my wife in it (which Bryant's was), I'm going to use what I have available to get him off. Driving away is reasonable, and if he still persists, then I'll find a way to get him off my car.

Again I don't know all the facts but it seems far more likely that it was a drunken, unstable asshole looking to pick a fight, and came across another asshole that wasn't willing to be the one to let it go. Then it escalated, one douchebag tried to get into the car, the other smashed him into stuff (the whole time the first douchebag held on instead of just letting go) and killed him.

The Bryant guy may be a prick but crucifying him like this based on some news headlines is weak.

meh .. I call it irony with a mix of karma. As attorney general he makes the call on certain cases but this time something happened where he couldn't control the situation. I'm sure he gave tickets or put people away for similar situations but now it has happened to him.

2 douche bags for sure. Maybe now some of these courier cyclists wont think there immortal and take better measures .. I seen how they cross through traffic. They love picking fights with people in cars because they think they own the road as some drivers that think the same thing.

I would like to see what caused all of this before passing judgement on this guy.

I agree with BigD, if some drunk grabbed a hold of my car and my family was in it, I'm out of there.
Nowadays, people are equipped with some nasty stuff that can cause serious damage so I will not hesitate to do what's necessary for my family's safety.

its like blades said, im sure there are people out there with good reason for many of the laws theyve broken or the mistakes they made, but that didn't stop the law from ruining their lives.

Yeah but I'm sure he can afford the best lawyer, and he's the former Att. General, that'll be taken into consideration. With the biker's history, the wife as a witness and the general circumstances, my guess is he gets off completely. What bothers me is the fact that because there is so much pre-emptive hate out there (just look at this thread), his career is ruined now, regardless if he's found innocent.

^^ what do you mean "nowadays people are equipped". Knives and small weapons have been around for ages. Car jacking is common in 3rd world countries.

What Michael Bryant committed was 3rd degree murder regardless of whether he was trying to save himself and his wife from bodily harm. On average people are sentenced anywhere from 3 to 15 years in prison for this.

well i dont know how much hate their is to be honest. I dont hate the guy. I think its funny that the politicians pass all these laws talking about safety and saving lives, and making sure that if anyone breaks these laws they face the full of extent of the law.

Its like this, theyve made laws where if someone breaks into your house and you murder them, youre likely going to do time and get charged. The "victim" will get all of his witnesses to come in and talk about how the guy was starving and didn't want to cause harm, blah, blah, blah, and judges, and laws will side with him to an extent.

So here we have a politician finally facing the laws that he graces the rest of society with. Maybe it was self defence, maybe the guy was trying to punch him, or beat him/w.e he was doing. I guess the word we are looking for here is its rather ironic that someone who takes the time to make the common mans life miserable with these stupid laws IS finally in the spot light.

I hope that it was self defence. I hope that argument wins and I hope it gets thrown out. Because that will be huge win for the public that shows, hey you know what, shit happens, and sometimes there are just alot of crazies out there and you gotta take matters into your own hand.
