A man waited at the end of the parking lot row, revving his engine, for a car to finally leave the front of the restaurant. He then raced forward across the parking lot into the front of the restaurant and almost out the back of the building.
He didn't know anyone in there. He didn't know the owners. He had no grudge against anyone in there. He says he was not suicidal. He just did it.
He was found not criminally responsible for his actions due to a mental disorder.
Well guess what. He is now getting out of the psychiatric hospital. The following is from our local news station Global B.C.
Earlier this year, Irving was found not criminally responsible of two counts of criminal negligence causing death and seven counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm due to mental disorder.
Two psychiatrists testified during his trial that Irving was in a state of delirium caused by alcohol withdrawal and didn't know what he was doing when he slammed his truck into the Halu Sushi restaurant. When someone is found not criminally responsible it is up to the review board to determine their fate.
Irving will be released under the supervision of the director of adult forensic psychiatric services, he has to live where instructed by the director and report to a forensic psychiatric outpatient clinic at least once a week for monitoring, the review board stated.
He is banned from drinking alcohol and using weapons.
The review board didn't restrict Irving's ability to drive.It is bad enough he is getting out but the kicker is that the psychiatrist was against letting him go.
The British Columbia Review Board made the decision this week to release Irving, going against recommendations of a B.C. psychiatrist who recommended that Irving stay in hospital.Now what just happened in Washington State with the man Huckabee released? Four dead? What is wrong with these boards? Ask the psychiatrist his opinion and then do what you want anyways?
Let me make this clear that this is not about forgiveness. This is about going against the professional opinion of a psychiatrist and allowing him too many freedoms. He is not well. We are not safe.
The family of Maija Liisa Corbett is upset by this turn of events and Hyeshim Oh's must be so distraught with this news. I know I am.
