POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Why is the Globe and Mail giving free public relations efforts to Mr Bryant?

At the same time, you have joined in the general effort to blacken the reputation of the victim.

It is shameful.

How nice that he has the money to have a high-price lawyer to defend his irresponsible actions, but I would feel better as a citizen of Ontario if I saw some fairness at work in this ugly business.

No matter what the victim is said to have done, there was only one person who controlled the gas pedal and the brake, and that person was Mr Bryant.

He committed a terrible act, no matter what extenuating circumstances he claims.

The poor judgment he showed during this episode only makes me glad he has not achieved a greater office. There is a fundamental flaw in the man.

If indeed the victim seemed to be trying to grab the wheel, he was only following a fairly common practice of couriers who have been abused by a car driver: they reach for the keys and extract them and toss them down a drain.

Not nice, but not something you kill for, or even risk killing for.

Mr Bryant had his wife and a cell phone – which he used after killing the man – and could easily have stopped and called police while the victim harangued them.
