Alone and Cold : The Final Frank Paul report from the Davies Commission.

I’ve had great interest in the death of Frank Paul for some time, and seeing justice served. This is a collection of some of the posts I have done in this unforgivable and unforgettable death.

The final report of the Davies Commission was released and although I am only partially through it, you can read that report in PDF form at this link: DaviesCommission-FinalReport-June-16-2011


This is what’s wrong with our “Justice” system

Earlier this year, on March 13th, I blogged about a shooting that had occurred in broad daylight, in a residential cul-de-sac where children play freely.

Some men were arguing in front of one of the homes. The verbal disagreement became a physical fight and at that time another man puled out a gun and shot another man in the back ,paralyzing him permanently from the waist down. 

 My account of the aftermath is here.

The man who fired the gun,Jessie Dhinda,  left the scene and in a press release issued  by the RCMP to the public, was described as “armed and dangerous”. Makes sense – he  had, after all, just shot a man in the back and left him critically injured.

Jessie Dhinda was later apprehended by police and charged with two counts of aggravated assault and one charge of discharging a firearm with the intent to wound or disfigure.

This same man, is now back out on our streets, a free man-  as reported  by Dan Ferguson in this excerpt from The Surrey Leader :

” Jaspal “Jessie” Dhindsa of Surrey is back on the street, free on bail while he waits to stand trial for allegedly shooting another man in the back.

A Surrey Provincial Court judge ordered Dhindsa’s release on April 9, court records show.

The 22-year-old  has been ordered to have no contact with two individuals and is banned from possessing firearms.”


How does this work? You shoot a man in the back and paralyze him, and it’s called assault.  On a busy street with children about.  Clearly endangering the public.

Of course, it makes sense to give him bail. Of course. He’s been out for almost a month, enjoying the sunshine.

Of course that makes sense.

He must  not  be armed and dangerous anymore… – Protect our Communities by Keeping Criminals in Jail!!!

If you are as fed up with the wimpy, limp-wristed sentences being handed out by judges these days, as I am,  then this IS the site for you !!!

Created with the vision of a group of Langley residents who finally said enough is enough, and decided to take action rather than sit back and whine about it, this site allows you to voice your concerns, share your stories, and sign a petition for tougher sentences.

 This group of proactive residents were repeatedly victimized by the same offender who keeps being charged by police,  and yet is subsequently released by judges who dont think his criminal actions warrent any jail time!! 

Tougher sentencing is an issue close to my heart,  as it is the only way to address the atrocious lack of penalty given to many offenders, including those who commit domestic assault.

Stand up and allow your voice to be heard. Go to, and take action by adding your name to the list of outraged citizens and victims of crime.
