I was going to do my Hearts of Iron IV report, but this shit was just too sick to pass up. Apparently this guy up in Canada had molested his two stepdaughters over a number of year. If that wasn’t sick enough, he also alleged got the family dog to join in his depravity. We can only imagine what he made this hapless canine do to the two little girls. The mind goes to some dark places. Regardless, the Canadian Supreme Court has ruled that bestiality was not committed and they cleared the man of that charge, even though he was still convicted on the molestation charges.
The man, known only by initials DLW convicted of 13 counts of sexually assaulting his two stepdaughters over a 10-year period has successfully challenged a separate count of bestiality which, as it turns out, requires penetration for it to have been illegal.
The decision that was supported by all but one of the justices acquitted the man of forcing the family dog to take part in the sexual abuse of his stepdaughters, Reuters reported.
“Although bestiality was often subsumed in terms such as sodomy or buggery, penetration was the essence – ‘the defining act’ – of the offence,” the court said, according to the Independent.
The court didn’t have the power to rule otherwise since all of the previous decisions regarding bestiality have always involved penetration which is an obligatory aspect in such cases, Justice Thomas Cromwell, writing on behalf of all judges, said.
I’m not sure what the Canadian parliament plans on doing, but hopefully they address this. After all, it’s 2016.
