TIM'S LAW

It's time the laws changed...We need to start giving more rights to Victim's of Crime and force the criminal's to start accepting more responsibility for their actions; regardless of whether or not they knew what they were doing was wrong.
Making "Tim's Law" a reality will do just that.

The sole purpose of this petition is to raise awareness of the need for change in how the Canadian legal system handles people charged with violent, psychotic crimes and how, in the current system, these person's, when found criminally not-responsible are treated and processed. While the author of this petition could go on and on about the psychotic individual who violently took the life of Tim McLean, he will not. That person does not deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as Tim.

I whole-heartedly agree with Tim's mother that the NCR or "Not Criminally Responsible" legal finding should be changed to NPA or "Not Psychologically Accountable". As she puts it, She wants those who are found to be not criminally responsible to have criminal records and to be treated in prison not in a mental facility. "They would be Not Psychologically Accountable but still criminally responsible. Because a crime was still committed here, a murder still occurred. And NCR seems to negate that fact. At least that's how it feels to us, "she said.

If you support this concept of giving more rights to the family of victim's of crime and forcing the criminal to be accountable for his/her actions regardless of their mental state, then please sign the petition below.
