As the weeks approach for the eligibility for Karla Homolka to apply for a pardon, the federal government has worked to pass a bill through the house which will not allow Homolka to make the request.

Firstly, why she was even allowed out of prison is beyond me. Oh yes...plea bargaining: that is what is is called. She ratted on her ex husband Bernardo so the courts went a little easier on her. Did they forget that she played an important role in the rapes and murders of the two Ontario girls along with the murder of her sister? Her sister.......I still can't get over that.

As far as I am concerned, there should be no pardons for any criminals especially when innocent lives are sniffed out.

In Webster's dictionary the definition of a pardon is as follows:

1. the excusing of an offense without exacting a penalty
2. a release from the legal penalties of an offense
3. excuse or forgiveness for a fault,offense or discourtesy.

Does Homolka or Morin- Cousineau fall into any of these definitions? A pardon given to a murderer in my opinion would say, oh well, we know you didn't mean it...try and be good from now on. pardons for no the crime, do the time and let's make sure it is for a long, long time.
