This article about one of the recently convicted G20 protestors would be funny were there not enough idiots like this to cause great damage and disrupt a usually peaceable city for a few days at the recent G20 in Toronto. Morons like this vandalized businesses, burned police cars, and provoked what is considered by many to have been a police over-reaction. Slightly less stupid people, often considered innocent, got themselves caught in an utterly predictable crossfire.
So let us look into this mental midget's mind.
A TTC urban planner was sentenced to 14 months for attempted arson and damaging two police cruisers during the G20 summit riots.
Ashan Ravindhraraj was fired by the TTC in July 2010, a month after he was photographed setting ablaze and stomping on the abandoned police cars on Queen St. W.
OK, squishy education and job, and now, I am pleased to see no job. When he gets out of jail he will likely have to have a career as an NDP politico; I don't see much else.
Madam Justice Anne Molloy said the 27-year-old Ryerson University graduate blamed his appalling conduct on a recent break-up and his decision to quit smoking.
Of course - it's OK to commit arson and vandalism when you're a bit down and a bit stressed. I'll give his Girl(?)friend credit though, though clearly starting with him was an error of judgment.
She dismissed his quitting-smoking excuse after the accused was spotted in many photographs and video images with a lit cigarette in his hand.
OK I can fairly call him stupid. How did he pick a stupid lawyer?
He showed little real remorse and only pleaded guilty to two counts of mischief due “to the overwhelming photographic and video evidence,” which made his conviction a certainty.
His ethics are that it is OK to commit crimes if he thinks he won't get caught. Nice.
He is sorry he did it, not because of the appalling conduct itself, but because of the effect it had on him and his family,” said Molloy.
Utterly self-absorbed, with a pretty stunted sense of compassion.
Crown attorney Catherine Rhinelander argued the accused was clearly destroying the windshield, not testing its “sponginess,” as the accused testified. Molloy agreed.
Stupid indeed. I think we know what IS spongy.
Yes looks like an Occupier. walks like an Occupier, quacks like one too.
