Placeholder + Stephine Beck Update

by matttbastard

Sure would be nice if blogging, not The Day Job, paid the bills. Alas, my primary source of income has been extra demanding the past little while, hence the minimal/sporadic blogging from yours truly. Hopefully things lessen up soon–and that my wonderful, magnanimous, ever-so-talented cobloggers continue to occasionally remind everyone that, yes, this is actually a group blog.

Anyway, while life continues to get in the way of living for yours truly, please do head over to Womanist Musings for an update on the Stephine Beck case. To summarize: in response to a broad spectrum of outrage, the Crown is filing a motion of appeal with the Ontario Court of Appeal to overturn the 1 day sentence given to Wayne Ryczak after the St Catharines resident was convicted in the death of Beck, a local sex trade worker. Thank fucking reason.

  1. I will continue to closely follow this case and post any updates that I come across. I have recently learned that there have been several murders of prostitutes in the Niagara Region wherein, there was a limited attempt to solve the case or the murderer received a light sentence. I am in the midst of compiling this for a comprehensive post. I think what happened in the Ryczak trial is more of the same for the region. If you are sex trade worker you just don’t matter here, and that has got to change.
