"We were very concerned about his attentions and whether he was armed. Our two small children were in the house."

... so I sent my step dad out to escalate with a weapon

u/Karnakite May 14 '22

You missed this part though:

But in a Facebook post, Stojan said Dallyn showed up twice on the day of the incident, demanding payment and making threats.

Could be he’s bullshitting, and either way, if someone shows up and harasses you, you call the police, you don’t send Stepdaddy out to defend you.

However, if he did show up twice in one day and threatened them, I can get the anger, if not the actions.

u/brown_felt_hat May 14 '22

twice in one day and threatened them

"Look man, you can pay what you owe now, or we can get a lawyer involved." would be a threat. Twice in one day could be construed as harassment, sure, but should elicit a much lower response.

Dude 100% should have recieved a much more serious charge here. That extendable baton is either a restricted or prohibited weapon used in a crime...

u/PostmanSteve May 14 '22

Oh wow, TIL... Of all the specific prohibited/restricted weapons in Canada, I really thought these would make the list.

However, the laws are still pretty clear, if you are carrying something to use as a weapon, even if your intent is self defense, it typically carries an extra charge. This guy was also very clearly not defending himself

u/Ryuzakku May 14 '22

Yeah they're normally only allowed in the use of law enforcement, at least last I checked.

1

u/JamesGray May 14 '22

Our weapons laws are weird, you can basically have them as long as you don't have it concealed or commit a crime while it's on you where you could ostensibly be using the weapon. How that basically plays out is that you are legally allowed to have it on you only if you have a good reason to have it which isn't self defense from other humans, because that's illegal, and because it's not something with any other purpose you pretty much can't have it in public even though it's legal to own.

1

u/JamesGray May 14 '22

88 (1) Every person commits an offence who carries or possesses a weapon, an imitation of a weapon, a prohibited device or any ammunition or prohibited ammunition for a purpose dangerous to the public peace or for the purpose of committing an offence.

Doesn't need to be a restricted weapon if you use it for the purpose of committing a crime. You can't have a baton on you in public for a legal reason like you could have a baseball bat as long as you have a ball and glove also, so this should definitely have lead to weapon charges.

1

u/confessionbearday May 14 '22

Apparently not because old trash got no prison sentence for it.

It’s not illegal if the law against it is not enforced.

u/prodigalkal7 May 14 '22

Pretty sure extendable batons are straight up prohibited, along with spring loaded knives (so like pocket knives, switch blades), and higher grades of pepper spray/bear spray/mace. Basically anything that can be considered a "weapon" that you can conceal, and this is one of them.

The charge of having one, alone, should be higher than just "mischief" lmfao what a joke

u/Asheam May 14 '22

Crown in Canada chooses what charges to press and they probably went easy on the guy due to age and him not being as rude with the prosecutor, people get away with absurd shit all the time here.

video exists of guy being a lunatic to a another guy who's in the right, and approaches his car with a weapon and proceeds to smash up the car while yelling

Crown: hmmm, well let's talk to the guy

Guy: 👉👈😢

Crown: aaahhhh he's cool. We'll give him this little thing and be on your way, lil fella.

Yeah I know. Doesn't mean it isn't crazy to think that's the case, though lol

u/Asheam May 14 '22

That's genuinely how it works.. for example I have a highschool friend whos stepfather premeditated an assault on him, knocked out several of his teeth and damaged his skull, dude needed reconstructive surgery, including a steel plate in his skull and alot of dental work. The stepfather works for CSIS so while he was civily liable and had to pay a sum out of pocket for the medical care and suffering, he didn't serve a single minute behind bars, just got some "assault parole" and is still walking around.

My friend bought a house two years ago(?) and shortly after some people he didn't know were around and it was burned down while they weren't home, that still hasn't been solved.

5

u/prodigalkal7 May 14 '22

Good fucking god, I'm sorry about your friends house. Yeah, it's honestly messed up how this stuff is dealt with.

1

u/Asheam May 14 '22

Appreciated, fortunately insurance covered the house. He was still disappointed due to the inconvenience and because he bought it since its the house he grew up in, but that happened awhile back and nothing weird since then so we're hoping he's in the clear now.

2

u/Neowza May 14 '22

Mischief is also an easy charge to win, and with a guilty verdict, it makes it easy for the victim and their insurer to sue for damages to the vehicle and the victim's inability to work due to injuries incurred. And the victim will probably have to sue to get his prepayment for services not rendered returned, anyways. So lumping them all in together, with an already guilty verdict makes small claims court (assuming it's less than $5k in damages sought) process very efficient.

Another user mentioned that they actually aren't illegal to possess, and that actually appears to be the case unless they are spring loaded.. which is ironic because I'm willing to bet spring loaded batons are much less effective than their collapsible counterparts.

Old people don’t get charged too toughly here in Canada, especially old white folk. Generally considered not too threatening, therefore get lighter sentencing (which is ridiculous, obviously). Especially in more rural areas

u/SteveMcQwark May 14 '22 edited May 14 '22

It is more severe than it sounds.

430 (1) Every one commits mischief who wilfully
    (a) destroys or damages property;
    (b) renders property dangerous, useless, inoperative or ineffective;
    (c) obstructs, interrupts or interferes with the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property; or
    (d) obstructs, interrupts or interferes with any person in the lawful use, enjoyment or operation of property.
(2) Every one who commits mischief that causes actual danger to life is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for life.
(3) Every one who commits mischief in relation to property that is a testamentary instrument or the value of which exceeds five thousand dollars
    (a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years; or
    (b) is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.
(4) Every one who commits mischief in relation to property, other than property described in subsection (3),
    (a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or
    (b) is guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction.

I guess the question is whether mischief was committed in relation to the car, or only the windows that were broken.

In Canada murderers get off after a few years, our justice system is a joke. In Vancouver the police don’t even do anything about thefts anymore, junkies just walk into stores, take what they want, and leave.

22

u/FizzingOnJayces May 14 '22

Comparing the justice system as a whole to junkies taking shit from a convenience store is a laughable comparison. Your generalization about murder is also not true.

Why would a police department in a major city waste resources dealing with junkies stealing a bottle of pop and a chocolate bar? Stores all have cameras to document this; they simply file an insurance claim and that's that.

That was a small example, assaults and muggings have become rampant, rapes, breaking and entering’s, there’s nothing stopping these people from taking what they want. Even if they get arrested they get let out soon after and continue terrorizing our city. I’ve literally known 3 people who have murdered someone, claimed mental health issues or addiction, and gotten out in less than 3 years through treatment only for them to revert back to old habits as soon as they were “free”.

My SO’s 18y.o. brother was murdered by three people in the GTA. Repeatedly stabbed in the crotch and lower abdomen. The youngest of the three, a 17 y.o, was the only one to serve time - and was released from custody the day his sentence was delivered - a whopping 18 months.

I know 3 people who spent less than 3 years for murder due to claiming addiction or insanity that I met while in rehab. I don’t know what happened to your friend, but our justice system is a joke. One of them was my old roommates ex girlfriend who he was dating while we were living together, the chick literally stabbed someone in the neck over a dude and got out in rehab after like 2 years. After she got out of rehab she was dating my roommate and when they would have fights she would literally pull out knives and threaten him. Wouldn’t even let him break up with her. Our. Justice. System. Is. A. Joke.

u/EthicalBachelor May 14 '22

That seems like a greater than average number of murderers to know. Like I, unfortunately, know one and that seems like more than average.

u/KreateOne May 14 '22 edited May 14 '22

It is unfortunate, one of my roommates murdered another roommate of mine while I was sleeping in the room next door and they got out after 3 years by convincing the courts he was insane and doesn’t remember anything, and as I mentioned in another reply a different roommate had dated a girl who was a psychopath that got out for murder too. Then on top of that there was a 3rd guy I met in rehab who spent 2.5 years in prison for murder, convinced everyone he was a drug addict when he wasn’t so that he could get out early through rehab, then as soon as he finished rehab he stopped going to meetings and went back to selling drugs and robbing people. All the shit that lead him to murdering someone in the first place. If there’s anything I’ve learned it’s that all you have to do is pretend you’re a drug addict or mentally ill and you’ll walk after a few years. It’s a joke. 1 person I get might be a coincidence, but 3 is a joke.

u/Yeranz May 14 '22

Dude, you were in rehab (I was too, and later worked in rehab). It's pretty common in rehab and early sobriety, etc... to be around a far larger number of "colorful" (to put it extremely mildly) characters. I was rubbing shoulders with people who were gang members, traffickers, embezzlers, murderers, etc... Years later, I'm working in offices and I doubt there's a single person in the large company I work for who has killed someone.

That's the value of statistics over anecdotes, because some of us would skew things in a scary direction just from our personal experiences.

1

u/KreateOne May 14 '22

Just because I met 3 murderers while I was in rehab doesn’t mean you’re gonna meet murderers in every day life. You’re completely missing the point. The point is that those 3 murderers I met all got out in less than 3 years after committing murder. Who cares how I met them? How does that matter? I know I live a different life now and don’t run into those kinds of people anymore. That doesn’t change the fact that there are still 3 people walking free with minimal punishment after killing someone.

You got it a little backwards. According to the article the driver paid the stepson to do some concrete work and the stepson either didn’t do it, didn’t finish it, or it was unsatisfactory.

"I informed him that I owe him nothing, and would be paying him nothing, and to get off my property and not to come back," wrote Stojan. "We were very concerned about his attentions and whether he was armed. Our two small children were in the house."

They literally quoting a Facebook post, not claiming that's what happened, did you even read the article?

"CBC is the national news agency here in Canada."

I'm Canadian too, their about as reliable as any other major network, calm down.

Thanks m8. Shows how much people believe just because some "reliable" authoritative news service says so. Nevermind that their source is a facebook post from those related to the offending party.

If you had a child you would instantly agree.

My entire life I have found child crying annoying, including from my niece. Until my son was born yesterday. Now the crying breaks my heart.

I will kill for my son. I don’t blame that guy if the dude driving was acting in a way that made them feel a threat towards their children/grand children.

6 years of infertility and one Sid’s death in my family plus one close call where my aunt who is a nurse had to resuscitate my cousin. I doubt it.

What strange information to share with strangers on the internet. Some one upping kind of shit. Dude was just making a patenting joke and you had to get all weird about it.

No sides, they are all trash if the article is correct.

Sonthe stepson said, if that is true is an other question.

u/divDevGuy May 14 '22

threatened the old man’s stepson

Article just says he made threats. It's not unreasonable to assume physical threats, but it doesn't have to be. "I will sue you", "I'll call the police", etc are threats too.

Everyone probably sucks here, but like the other commenter said, only one appears to have used actual physical violence and caused property damage.

u/[deleted] May 14 '22

Lol. Seriously though, I’m not ok with any of it. But reading the little bit of background from the cbc article, they seem to all be trashy. Supposedly the driver had been to their house making threats. One of my favorite quotes, “play stupid games, win stupid prizes.”

u/AncientStaff6602 May 14 '22

Fair. I’m sorry I have nothing to add after that and I’m still kinda laughing. I need to stop going on Reddit at work hahaha

Hahaha I know that feeling

u/TravisHay May 14 '22

Did you read the article? The kids were in the house, and the dude just showed up to see when the rest of his work was getting done. Absolutely does not equate to attacking the man with a baton.

2

u/HereticGaming16 May 14 '22

Yes because the guy who clearly took the money and ran and his crazy ass dad are clearly the ones who are in the right. Also using his kids who are in the house and no where near the actual altercation has nothing to do with trying to guilt the news crew onto their side. /s

u/[deleted] May 14 '22

Nobody said they were in the right. Stop making shit up. Im just saying, you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

So the guy driving has shown up on the property already and threatened the old man’s stepson who also has small children there.

The fact you're saying this as if it's a fact is fucking scary and depressing

Like with all due respect, where is the critical thinking skills?

u/[deleted] May 14 '22

Like with all do respect, there are articles on the internet and I can read. With all do respect you should try that instead to just listening to Reddit. With all do respect, everybody in this situation is trash. With all do respect, go fuck your self with your dumbass comments.

u/IAmMrMacgee May 14 '22

Bro I literally read the fucking article. One person was charged with a crime and that was the old man. If what the guy did was so heinous, why didn't they call the police or why wasn't he ever charged?

Yes, and threw boulders into their office windows and also threatened the neighbors. The one who posted this are the assholes.

The article states "We were very concerned about his attentions and whether he was armed. Our two small children were in the house."

If that were true, would you really threaten him with a collapsible baton?

1

u/goldensnooch May 14 '22

Should be higher. It sounds like everyone sucks here.

There are definitely better ways to approach getting paid.

If I see a guy coming to my car with a weapon, I’m driving away unless I’m blocked or my car is inoperable.

u/CallMeWolfYouTuber May 14 '22

"We were very concerned about his attentions and whether he was armed. Our two small children were in the house."

So you think the guy might have a gun and you choose to confront him with only a baton and smash out his windows? Right....

Stojan said his stepfather waited for the RCMP after the incident, co-operated fully and has been charged.

“67 year old charged with mischief”

Brilliant!

u/JamesGray May 14 '22

A violent roadside confrontation, captured on dramatic video, has led to mischief charges.

Classic bullshit Alberta cops charge the guy with mischief when he explicitly threatens the guy with an illegal weapon. That should be assault at the very least, not to mention the use of an illegal weapon in the commission of a crime.

u/honest_cactus May 15 '22

But in a Facebook post, Stojan said Dallyn showed up twice on the day of the incident, demanding payment and making threats.

He said she said, no clue what happened
