Selva Kumar Subbiah-Jail House Justice
A man convicted of raping more than 30 women, and suspected by police to have attacked over 500 has been stabbed several times while serving his 24-year sentence at the Kingston Penitentiary. Two inmates allegedly involved in the incident have been put into segregation while the incident is being investigated. Selva Kumar Subbiah is an immigrant to Canada and is scheduled to be deported when his sentence is completed in 2017.
Why did this man not get life in prison? The time he serving in prison is not even a year per victim, and that is not even considering all the others he is suspected of. I wonder if the investigation is continuing on those suspected cases. The victims of this man are serving a much harsher penalty than what he is serving.
The price of human life cannot be measured in time served, and the suffering of the victim’s families continues long after he is released. I am not surprised by the actions of the other inmates. Crimes against women and children are the lowest of the low, and there is real truth that there is honour among thieves.
After his deportation, I wonder how he will be welcomed. Justice for the victims may yet be received.
