Wanted – Eric Mearow


  1. Why bother arresting him? He’ll just be let out in a year. Don’t waste my tax money doing that, please. Use my tax money wisely, and buy a single 5.56 at $1.60, that’ll do.

  2. Dangerous offenders like this should be locked up for life in a secure facility where there is no chance of them doing any further harm to society. The justice system needs a serious overhaul.

    • No, don’t waste our tax money like that. A single 5.56 is only $1.60. I’ll give them a toonie and they can keep the change.
