Do you think Western law is too soft on criminals?
The Quebec Court of Appeals reduced the minimum sentence of Quebec City mosque shooter from two consecutive life sentences to one, making him eligible for parole after serving 25 years. Considering he's only 30 yo, he'll make it for parole.
Isn't that outrageous?

Canada's infamous leniency isn't necessarily indicative of "Western law". Its very own neighbor to the south has much stronger criminal law policies (in most states). Not sure why you find this shocking in a country where a man who beheaded someone on a bus and a sexual sadist serial killer who murdered her own sister are both out of incarceration and living their lives alongside normal people.

The main purpose of lawyers in western democracies, is to make the best living they can ,by finding as many ways as possible to pervert the course of justice .
The law is simply a game of word chess to them .

Indeed. Mass murderers should never be eligible for parole.

"eligible for parole" and "getting parole" are very different things
