I am outraged by the decision of Justice Peter Rogers to release Keith Wiens, a retired RCMP officer charged with the murder of his wife, Lynn Kalmring, in their Penticton home on Aug. 16.
It is disgusting that after only two weeks in custody, Wiens is back home in a luxury-gated community with his brother for company and no real limits on his activities.
Justice Rogers has stated “the criminal justice system views these matters differently than the person sitting across from you at Tim Hortons.” I can’t believe his arrogance. It’s time that our justice system reflects our values.
Lynn Kalmring’s children have lost the love and guidance of their mother, one of the most important things in life that can never be replaced. I feel sick when I think of the terror that Lynn must have felt in her last moments, and as a member of our community I demand justice for her and her family.
I did not know Lynn but her story has touched my heart. Rest in peace Lynn, I will join the fight for justice for your murder.
