Closing arguments in the John Nuttall entrapment case
BC TV is reporting that Closing arguments began in B.C. Supreme Court on today in the John Nuttall entrapment case involving the Surrey Pressure cooker fraud. Closing arguments for both defence and the Crown have been scheduled to wrap up within two weeks. Global posted an interview with John's mother back in February. In that video it showed a clip when John Nuttall said on hidden camera I don't want to kill any women and children.
The law states that entrapment is wrong. There has never been a more clear case of entrapment in the history of the earth. Without CSIS' involvement there was no means or motive to commit the crime. John repeatedly said he did not want to hurt civilians. He was pressured to come up with a plot after he had been given food and money. John was told Mr Big isn't going to be happy with your lack of progress. He's spent a lot of money on you. You need to come up with some ideas. John thought Mr Big was a kind religious man helping them out of the goodness of his heart. When he was told Mr Big was really a crazed terrorist planing an attack he became fearful for their life and did what he was told.
This case was horrific exploitation of two very vulnerable people and is the perfect example of misappropriation of tax dollars. Without CSIS there was no means or motive to commit the crime. That is entrapment. The fact that CSIS has yet to be charged with providing the explosives for the Air India bombing is an obscene miscarriage of justice.
