49. Canadian sentences are sickenly weak in general
I'm surprised the whole population isn't up in arms, taking vigilante justice. My brother living in Canada emailed me an article today about a convict in Saskatchewan who's racked up 15 violent felonies including several attempted murders, 6 uttering death threats, 30 robberies and burglaries, several prison breaks and escape from custodies, and numerous violations of court orders. The court is "considering" whether to label him a "violent" offender. (and he's only 41)

Sometimes, Texas justice doesn't seem so bad; neither does "three strikes and you're out".
