Authorities say it’s because he has an “intellectual disability.”
In a disgraceful failure of the justice system, a man who brutally attacked a 92-year-old Holocaust survivor in Montreal won’t face criminal charges.
The NY Post reported that “Montreal resident Hanka Fogelman, 92, called for a cab operated by Société de transport de Montréal (STM), a transit service provided by the city for individuals with physical and mental disabilities. En route to visit her daughter, she shared the vehicle with a woman, who sat in the passenger seat, and her eventual attacker, a man who sat with her in the back.”
Strangely, the driver warned Fogelman that the man could have been dangerous, but still let the man stay in the cab, instead of transporting Fogelman herself so things were safer.
During the ride, the man began attacking Fogelmen, who was severely assaulted and was bleeding from her nose.
Fogleman’s twin sister and father were executed in the Holocaust, and she was sent to both Auschwitz-Birkenau and Bergen-Belsen before being liberated in April, 1945.
She came to Canada not long after her liberation.
Speaking to CBC, Fogelman’s daughter Rona wondered why her mother would have been put in that dangerous situation in the first place:
“I feel angry. I feel shocked. I look at my mother and she’s so mentally aware, but there’s physical vulnerability there. Why was he even in the taxi? Why would the taxi driver have sat my mother next to him and closed the door and started driving?”
A report on what happened to Fogelman can be watched below:
Another outrage is the lack of charges against the man who committed the crime. How could someone not face charges after a brutal assault?
How could someone not get a criminal record for such a heinous act?
How is “intellectual disability” an excuse for a horrific assault?
Enough political correctness.
This must be fixed.
A violent assault on an innocent elderly women must result in criminal charges, regardless of whatever excuse the authorities or ‘justice’ system may be using to justify their lack of common sense and lack of compassion for victims of heinous crimes.
