IS THIS GUY A REGULAR?
Remembering 3/26/2014 8:38:54 AM Report

Looks like no more happy times for Fonzi

His cry for help needs to be answered.

@Remembering

“…Looks like no more happy times for Fonzi…” LOL

@Javaman

“…His cry for help needs to be answered…”

Are you for real?! He isn’t a Baby but an adult. His criminal record goes back to his teens. Almost all of it is B&E. This isn’t a mental defect, it is a choice – In his case it is a choice of lifestyle. HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE REHABILITATED! It is much easier not to work when you can steal enough money and food to survive.

You are correct in one aspect – He does need help before he wastes his entire life in the system! It is time to give this man his intervention - Through him in prison for 5 years with no early parole and put him on probation/halfway house for 5 years after his release. If that doesn’t correct his behaviour, nothing

Good job by the police, but poor job by the court system. Four breaches of probation?? It's time to get a Judge that will actually lock him up. This guy is LAUGHING at the justice system.

Yes the POLICE 100%.Our court /judicial system 0 .

Eagles Fan. 3/26/2014 9:17:19 AM Report

I think it's time that the Canadian Justice System start being held accountable for their actions, or lack thereof

Take this latest local murder for example, this Seaton fellow has been in the news for years, being arrested for all sorts of crimes, including assaults, and keeps finding himself out on the streets.

Finally, he actually killed someone, go figure!! This certainly isn't the last time we'll hear about someone who has a troubled past with violence, being allowed out on the streets, only to end up murdering

I think the families of someone murdered by a habitual violent offender, should be able to sue the Canadian justice system
HONEST1 3/26/2014 9:36:37 AM Report

I really think the police should print a picture of this guy and Caicco. The public should know what these thugs look like. If I knew what they look like they would get there teeth bashed in!!!!

@ Javaman,

His cries for help will only be answered by a ambulance. He deserve to get the #### kicked out of him.

You wouldn't say that if he broke into your house and took your stuff!!!

"no fixed address" any of you stop to think that mabye this guy could just use some help finding a place to live and a job. then he wouldn't have to steal to live. but i guess in some minds it is easier to sweep the mess into jail than to actually help deal with it. some should think before they speak.
Bad Dawg 3/26/2014 11:04:59 AM Report

enough with the probation, it doesn't work. They should be on work farms if they have addiction issues. They are degenerates!! Just lock em up and dry em out, if the cold turkey kills them, then oh-well more of a deterrent for the next guy thinking of walking that road. these people made their beds and now when its time to lie in it, there are people saying they shouldn't have too....... nothing stopping you but fear and common sense from letting crackheads stay at your house so they are not stealing.
eadiecougs 3/26/2014 11:09:41 AM Report

keveye tell u what you give him a place to stay and a job the guy steals for drug money.There are places for him st vincent and others he chose his path and if he came to rob me I would make sure it would be his last so shatup with your liberal views throw the crook in jail and give him a job cleaning the streets of this city
BabyBella 3/26/2014 11:21:28 AM Report

These kids need help, No one in this world is perfect and some have had some terrible guidance in life. I'm sure they want to turn their lives around but now its too late for them. Who is going to give them a job? Because of his history his destiny is set! I'm not happy with the choices these kids make but I feel terrible they dont have much options open to them.
BabyBella 3/26/2014 11:23:31 AM Report

St Vincent, takes every penny the men recieve. They over charge! Maybe if help for his addiction was ordered in court rather than jail time he would get help and find some positive way to live
Slim Shady 3/26/2014 11:37:27 AM Report

@BabyBella

Why should by tax dollars subsidize a career criminal? St. Vincent's should take most of "his" (or better said "our") money... It costs a lot to feed and provide shelter!

You feel sorry for him? Why? Everyone (Almost) is born into this world with the ability to make choices. There are many people that came from disadvantage who CHOSE to become something better and did!

This guy doesn't steal because he is hungry or wants his own apartment... He steals because it is too difficult to go find a job, get up at 5AM everyday, show up to his employer, do his job as assigned without mouthing off, pay his taxes, pay his bills and get up the next day to repeat the cycle! The rest of us hones, hard working people do that each and everyday. We struggle to save for years to earn all what we have - only to have this piece of Sh&^ break in and take it all.

Give your bleeding heart a reality check! If you feel so sorry for him, offer him a room in your home and give him a job.... Oh you don't want a thief living in your home?.... hmmmm I guess it is "someone else's" problem eh?

BabyBella 3/26/2014 12:30:11 PM Report

Well tax dollars will keep him fed and warm in jail, use them to put him in a rehab instead. Maybe we may have better luck that way. I have offered a room in my home many times to people like this. They appreciate and respect me and some have changed and gotten jobs and done well others don't, but its worth it to see those who do well. So yes, I would offer him a room in my home. Bleeding heart..... At least I have one! Some of the kids need help, they don't know how to keep a normal life. You assume they were born with a handbook of life. If their parents don't have a clue then how the hell are their children supposed to have one.
Slim Shady 3/26/2014 12:48:39 PM Report

@BabyBella

I am not against Rehab - ONCE. Everybody (almost) deserves a second chance.... Not a third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and yes a seventh!

Everytime this "poor young helpless kid" got charged, he went to court and saw a Judge. The Judge gave him a "chance" to clean up his act by giving him warnings, community service etc. instead of jail.

At what point do you hold someone (with their mental competencies intact)accountible for their own actions? How long are you going to blame his parents or the rest of society for his actions?

Why should I have to live my life in fear of people like this (fear of becoming a victim of crime)? What right does he have to infringe on my right to live a peaceful life free of his criminal exploits?

I have a heart and compassion. I choose to spend my time and efforts on people who deserve it or appreciate it. Giving people help comes on many levels and is governed by your actions in your everyday Life.

BabyBella 3/26/2014 1:47:44 PM Report

ok so... lock them up throw away the key, build more jails, fill them, and then what. Their young minds are slow growing due to lack of nurturing. Blame their parents, well yeah its a start. yes he need be responsible for his own actions since he is a young adult, however he will learn eventually, but the process is slow because he has not been taught. Give him tools now and he may succeed a little sooner. He needs to learn how to change his life, how to get the things he needs or wants the right way. He probably has no clue how to make a resume, he probably feels he has no skills to work, feels unimportant and unworthy of a job so yes all these things are huge to a young man because he has not been taught. Once he builds his Self Esteem, skills and support he may then have the ability to battle life and succeed! I don't need Akon to get to heaven remember I have a bleeding heart!

@BabyBella

Nobody is saying to throw away the key. I am suggesting that the judicial system takes punishment to the next step. Obviously to continue with probation and release on his own recognizance is not working. He should be ordered into a rehab program and forced to stay there until he changes his attitude towards Life. He should loose his civil liberties for awhile…. Be made to wear an ankle bracelet and report to a probation officer after his rehabilitation. He should be made to pay these costs back to society through community service. If this doesn’t work I’d say that a period of jail time is warranted. What else are you going to do? Wipe his bum for him?

Just curious... have you ever been robbed? Have you ever been a victim of a violent crime? Perhaps if you have your views on rehabilitation would change. I have been robbed twice. Also my best friend had an armed invasion 15 years ago where his elderly mother was bound to a chair and pistol whipped. I beat the Police to his house and had to comfort both him and his mom. I swear to God if I had arrived earlier I would have shot the man dead. When your friends and family are involved your attitude changes. So excuse my lack of bleeding heart for every lost cause. People who prey on other people are the lowest form of Society... Pure, unrepenting savages.

This childlike adult is making these choices to be who he is. His family own multiple local businesses and he does not come from a broken home. He could work if he wanted to. He could have a roof over his head if he wanted to. He chose to lead the life he is. Perhaps addiction is his fuel but, that I do not know.

Big Deal 3/26/2014 4:18:01 PM Report

To FirstChairLastCall....not a broken home??? His Mother left both of them when they were very young and was a stripper, a cocaine addict and probably a prositute!!! Yes his family have multiple businesses, but like his father (who passed away tragically) I might add, chose not to work and go down this same path??? At least his father TRIED his best to raise his two children on his own. You can't make anyone do ANYTHING!!!
BabyBella 3/26/2014 4:22:26 PM Report

YES! I am a victim of a violent crime. Several years ago I nearly died from being assaulted. I am very lucky to be alive. I appreciate life and feel terrible for the children who grow up in abusive homes where there is violence, addiction and more. I've also been stolen from several times. I like to give a person an opportunity to change. I agree they need to pay back society, I agree they need to be punished! But we need to stop them from continuing this way of life. Many children are deprived of life skills, its obvious this boy is one of them. Before he ends up like the Seaton Boys we need to give him the skills he needs to learn and become a member of society that we can be proud of.

This guy needs to be locked up for a good 6 or 7 years.
