A Canadian couple found guilty of planting homemade bombs outside a government building will walk free after a court in British Columbia ruled the pair was entrapped by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) into carrying out a “police-manufactured crime”….
“This was a clear case of police-manufactured crime,” [BC supreme court justice Catherine] Bruce wrote in her ruling. “The world has enough terrorists. We do not need the police to create more out of marginalized people.”
The judge pointed to the couple’s mental capacity to back the assertion that the crime had been instigated by police….
The judge sided with defence’s argument that the couple had been entrapped during a five-month undercover police operation involving some 240 police officers.
“Without the police it would have been impossible for the defendants to carry out the pressure-cooker plan…” said Bruce. “The defendants were the foot soldiers but the undercover officer was the leader of the group.”
