Now to play a little game: called Definition:
Please define the word WILLFUL, first in your own terms, then go to : http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/willful
Next define the word STARVATION, first in your own terms, then go to: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/starvation
Define the word MORAL, first in your own terms, then go to: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moral
Now let’s try defining : CONSCIENCE http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/conscience
How about DISREGARD http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/disregard
Don’t forget about INDIFFERENCE http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/indifference
Now the best part of this little game is up to you. Having been given the details of the case , it is now your turn to be the JUDGE and JURY . Being of solid moral conscience (remember the definitions) I feel confident that your determinations on this case of Mr. Archie Beaulieu, reknowned Northern Artist will be far different from that of the Crown. I feel confident that all of you would have allowed this case to go to trial, leaving it up to jurors to decide what Mr. Beaulieu’s fate would be. Of course the Crown did not think it worthy of the time and energies involved .. “because of the unlikelihood of getting a conviction”. So with that decision now made by the Crown, can we safely say that it is open season on Northern Dogs? RCMP actually did lay the charge of animal cruelty, wow, and then the NWT Crown Prosecutor, chose to not follow through. Oh, what a wonderful message she sent…yes, open season on Northern Dogs and hey you RCMP don’t bother the courts with such trivia…. So please, play the game, define in your comments those words I listed above, and last but not least be the Judge and Jury.
What would your sentencing be for Mr. Reknowned Behchoko artist Archie Beaulieu?
Please be a strong voice against this form of disregard and injustice. Thank you.
