Although Christopher Husbands, 24, does have a previous criminal record from March, 1, 2010, incident, at 1:45 am, we still do not have a booking photo of him, why are the police not releasing his booking photo. (It may be because of a court publication ban.)
He’s still in custody in jail and will appear in court for the Eaton Centre charges on August 25th.
Five weeks before the Eaton Centre shooting in Toronto, Husbands was in Hamilton (just west of Toronto) and asleep in a car with a loaded (ten rounds) Heckler & Koch 40 calibre handgun in a secret compartment, and had a little pot in his possession. He was charged with nine gun related offences, but the Crown chose to dismiss all the gun related charges, because it was not his car.
He faced two more charges of obstructing a police officer, one of breaching bail conditions and one of pot possession, but the Crown chose to accept ‘time served’ for these minor charges. It was reported in court that he had no earlier criminal charges.
Had the book been thrown at him, possibly these two people and many others injured in the June shooting at Eaton Centre, would never have happened.
It appears the cops are doing everything they can to get these guns off the street, but when it enters the court system, they are failing us.
