... Mr. Chen is the Toronto grocer who back in May performed a citizen's arrest on a serial thief, but now faces charges of assault, kidnapping and forcible confinement for his actions.
... Crown prosecutors made a plea bargain with Anthony Bennett, the thief, in return for his testimony against Mr. Chen.Lovely! The prosecutor bribes a thief to testify against the victim of his crime.
Better make that "the law can be such an assh*le". Somebody ought to prosecute the prosecutor.
Here’s a petition to sign.
