    Default Canadian judge frees former teen terrorist who killed US Army medic

    Omar Khadr, a Canadian citizen, was just 15 when he threw the grenade that killed U.S. Army medic Christopher Speer as Speer and four others cleared a building in the Khost province following an air raid. Captured at the scene, Khadr admitted carrying out the act years later while in Guantanamo. A U.S. judge sentenced him in 2010 to eight years in prison, and the federal government allowed the Toronto native to serve his term in Canada. Khadr, who has been appealing the conviction while imprisoned in Canada, was granted bail by an Edmonton appeals judge who upheld a lower court ruling that his sentence could be cut short due to "good behavior."

    It also shouldn't be unexpected when he engages in terrorism again.

    I've been hearing about it for years, and the way it's been reported, they make it sound like somehow he was more victimized than the people's lives he destroyed. He should rot in prison as far as I'm concerned.
    His lawyer is a real prize too!

    the political left has made it that way (mostly the far left).

    I get why he's been let out. Not sure I disagree with the decision. I also understand why people want to keep him in jail. This case has me torn. People forget that this was a kid who was brainwashed by his terrorist loving father. It's very hard for a young man who is raised in that sort of home to challenge their parents. When they do they are often killed themselves (we've seen some cases like that here where a girl was killed for disrespecting her father on clothing issues). So how much blame do we assign a 15 year old child who was dragged to afghanistan and told to fight by his dad? I don't know.

    Yeah...I'm with you, and I understand he's a kid, brainwashed, yeah...but it makes you wonder how much of that is hard wired into him. Unfortunately (for better or worse) time will be the judge. I guess what pissed me off was listening to his asshole lawyer by his side essentially spewing the same hate diatribe that inflames radical beliefs...And he's living with the guy under conditions of his release.

    his lawyer came off like a complete scumbag in my opinion. I think the leader of a nation deserves a certain level of public respect and what he said was absolutely disgraceful. If there wasn't an election coming up I would recommend the PM sue him for slander.

    i guess your definition of bigot is different from mine then. In the world I live in I wouldn't expect a Muslim hating bigot to appoint a Muslim as head of his political caucus like Harper did. Harper doesn't like Muslim terrorists. I'd like to think 99.9% of Canadians support this position.
