The suspect is requesting the publication ban be lifted... so people can hear the truth about what happened.

My only take away is where in the hell did that skel get the 335K for bail?

*You don't actually "need" to have the $335k on hand.... just a reasonable chance you could come up with it if needed...
And even then... whoever signs the order can always revoke it and bingo... they're off the hook.

I think they were plainclothes (not sure though), I wonder if they did a poor job identifying themselves or the dude did not hear them. Then he thought he was being jacked by the two and took off running one of them over????? Just wondering....

I find it odd the defendant wants the publication ban lifted.

My understanding is that if your surety revokes you are back in the clink. JS.

The first clue that there was something off with the original narrative was that the "cop killer" wasn't charged with the robbery they were responding to when the cop was killed.
I am guessing that the cop jumped in front of the guy's with gun out.. and the guy panicked.

Something very similar happened a while back, in Bathurst, New Brunswick... except a completely innocent man was shot to death due to the dumb cops' actions.

This case is incredibly strange. What were police from Toronto doing executing a search warrant so far away from the city? Why weren't the OPP, who knew this guy consulted? It sounds like some kind of bizarre execution. The gunsmith was a well known, well liked person. There better be some answers to this one and soon. Some are suggesting the customer was an undercover cop.


Great commentary from a criminal lawyer.

That is very likely. A friend of mine is a gun collector and even makes his own ammo. He has probably 40 weapons and is also in a gun club where they do target practice with big and powerful pistols. He told me there are a ton of LE in the "sport". Not that there's anything wrong with that.

While it's not usual for police to act outside their specific area, all police officers are empowered to act as law enforcement officers anywhere in the Province, under the Police Services Act. This sort of thing could happen if they suspected local police involvement in crime, were having difficulty obtaining assistance, etc..

York region cop goes from passing info from police database to stealing a police shotgun to rob a drug stash house and sell the drugs he steals. Gets convicted on 8 of 30. Crown asks for 12 years, defence wants 5. Cops mom argues hes a good boy and should receive leniency as his life was stressful (in part due to his mistress telling his wife and mother of his young child that she existed).

"You should be lenient because he doesn't understand consequences!"

At least this one is finally over. Theriault is going to have to serve (at least part) of his nine month sentence and that should get the prick permanently off the force. Ontario appeal rejected. Supreme Court appeal rejected. End of the road. Bastard.

It's good to hear that they didn't buy the, "I chased him with a pipe and had to defend myself" defence, then the higher court didn't find any reason for appeal.

He didn't even get in trouble for bashing him with the pipe. After the pipe bashing, poor guy ran away unarmed to try to get help and Theriault chased him down again and continued the beating sans pipe.
