Edmonton woman jailed while testifying against her attacker
Laura's truthfulness is reporting on a CBC news article claiming that a First Nations woman from south of Edmonton was shackled and imprisoned for five days while she tesified aginst the man who physically and sexually assaulted her.
The details of the assault are horrific. What makes matter worse is that is "One year later, on June 5, 2015, Cardinal had to face her attacker again, at his preliminary hearing. On the first day she was called to testify, she kept falling asleep. She had trouble focusing and answering questions" so they shackled and imprisoned her. God damn them. That is not justice. The family has asked the court for the publication ban to be lifted so their daughter can be named. Sadly she was killed a year later in an unrelated shooting.
