The story of Ashley Smith is THAT OF INHUMAN, PRO-
LONGED (6.4 YEARS) ABUSE OF A GOOD-NATURED

state Gov't that "instinctively" LIES!

"Sometime before Ashley's April 2007 transfer from

with a closed fist, and someone hit her hand

myself.' " Toronto Star, Thursday, February 21st
2013, "Jail changed Smith, mother says: Coralee
Smith testifies Ashley was scared and complained
of violence", page A8


DANGEROUS Criminal?
Report of Ashley Smith's transfer to Grand Valley
in 2007 shows her, A KID, being treated like A
VERY DANGEROUS PRISONER. Was this
treatment of a teenager WARRANTED? Really?
"Wearing green track pants and a T-shirt, Smith
is taken off the plane with a waist restraint and
her hands and ankles cuffed. She is escorted
by six guards dressed in tactical gear. She is
transported on a secure truck to a segregation
cell." Toronto Star, Wednesday, February 20th
2013, "ASHLEY SMITH INQUEST: Troubled
teen believed guards would save her", page A3


A "Challenging" Inmate?
"She was sent directly into a segregation cell
once she arrived at Nova and remained there
for her entire stay at the facility."

Alfred Legere, warden at the Nova Institution,
testifying at the Ashley Smith Inquest: "We
were providing so much attention to Ashley
that I didn't know what was happening with
79 other inmates," Legere testified." Toronto
Star, Tuesday, February 26th 2013, "Smith
saw hostage-taking: Warden testifies about
prison conditions in Nova Scotia institution",
page A2

Is this TRUE or pure BULLSHIT?

What do you think?

I doN'T like THE SMELL OF THIS.

Our VICIOUS, DIRTY FASCIST Police state
Gov't STINKS!

BIG TIME!

Yes?


Being CRUEL + MEAN
"Legere said ... guards at Nova were ... instructed
to withdraw warmth ... ." Toronto Star, Tuesday,
February 26th 2013, "Smith saw hostage-taking:
Warden testifies about prison conditions in Nova
Scotia institution", page A2


8 Hours STRAPPED in Restraining Chair
"Guards at a Nova Scotia prison used 'extraordinary
force' when they strapped Ashley Smith in a specially
designed restraining chair for eight hours in 2007 ... ."

" 'It's an extraordinary deprivation of her liberty. She
was in that chair for eight hours strapped in like that.
It's an extraordinary use of force on someone who
was essentially compliant with them," Breese Davies
said in an interview outside the inquest. Toronto Star,
Wednesday, February, 27th 2013, "Smith spent 8
hours in chair: Inquest hears warden feared she
would kill herself if not restrained", page A14


Clearly OVERKILL!
"The video shows six specially trained emergency
response guards in black suits and visors on their
helmets entering Smith's cell on Aug. 23, 2007.
When they enter, four other regular guards from
the jail are already waiting in her cell wearing ha-
zardous materials suits. Toronto Star, Wednesday,
February, 27th 2013, "Smith spent 8 hours in chair:
Inquest hears warden feared she would kill herself
if not restrained", page A14

PINNED, then CUFFED!
"On the video the guards in the suits already have
Smith pinned face down on the floor of her cell,
with her head on a pillow. Her hands are cuffed
behind her back and her legs are shackled."

"The emergency response guards then take Ashley
and strap her into the chair."
Toronto Star, Wed-
nesday,

in chair:
Inquest hears warden feared she would kill
herself
if not restrained", page A14



HOME: where A KID belongs
Ashley Smith's mother (who adopted her when only
a few days old), Coralee, said to a reporter of P.E.I.'s
the Journal Pioneer in 2012, "Ashley's biggest wish
was to get home to her room, get in the Jacuzzi tub
and to hold her dog." Toronto Star, Wednesday,
February 20th 2013, "ASHLEY SMITH INQUEST:
Troubled teen believed guards would save her",
page A3


BIZARRE Situation
If what the Gov't alleges that Ashley was allowed to
choke herself, it's BIZARRE to say the least. One
has to think that THE GOV'T IS LYING. Karen Eves,
a correctional officer from another prison, "found it
'bizarre' to witness guards asking Smith to take off
ligatures she'd made to choke herself. The (idea)
that she's allowed to do it for a certain amount of
time? That didn't make much sense to me."
Toronto Star, Tuesday, February 13th 2013,
"SMITH INQUEST: Outsider calls actions
of jail staff 'bizarre' ", page A8


How ABSURD is this?
Given that Ashley Smith wore a security gown and
kept in a "tiny" (8' by 10') solitary confinement cell
with nothing, but a metal bed, 23 hours a day under
the watch of a video camera, Christie Blatchford
writing for Postmedia News says: "Ashley Smith ...
tied up as many as nine times a day ... and (she) ...
routinely kept glass in her privates ... ." National
Post, Tuesday, February 12 2013, "Cell guard
helpless to stop death: 'Their affection and con-
cern for Ashley was plain' ", page A6


A GREAT Kid
"Mr. Desrochers called her a 'gentle child' ... .
Because she had spent so much  of  her ado-
lescence in youth jail - Ashley had little formal
education, few social skills, few visitors and
no friends. 'It just seemed that everyone had
forgotten about her', he said." National Post,
Friday, February 15th 2013, 'Everyone had
forgotten about her', page A5

NOT Mental
It turns out the Government of Canada has
been LYING about Ashley Smith ALL ALONG
saying she was a "mental" case. According
to a June 2007 St. Thomas, ON, psychiatric
report "Ashley Smith's problems were 'beha-
vior not mental'." Toronto Star, Friday,
February 15th 2013, "ASHLEY SMITH
INQUEST: Problems 'behavioral no
mental' ", page A9


HEARTLESS Prison Staff
When prison staff came to escort Ashley
Smith from the Saint Thomas psychiatric
hospital back to the Grand Valley prison
for women in 2007, Ashley said: "Oh my
friend, you came back to get me" ... .
(Ms.) Lombardo ... told Smith: 'I'm not
your friend, but I'm here to take you back
to Grand Valley'." Toronto Star, Friday,
February 15th 2013, "ASHLEY SMITH
INQUEST: Problems ' behavioral no
mental' ", page A9


╔(eh)PC Policy
NO TEENAGER WILL GO TO JAIL, but
could be treated as a psychiatric patient -
if need be.

Currently, 25% of the 55,000 inmate po-
pulation are teenagers who are *NOT* in
school: that's A TREMENDOUS LOSS
OF PRODUCTIVITY.

But it also represent A TREMENDOUS
*UNNECESSARY* COST
to the taxpayer
according to the
╔(eh)PC.

At a cost of $200,000 a year to keep some-
one in jail, it costs (.25 x 55,000 x
$200,000)
$2.75 BILLION to keep teenagers in jail every
year.

NOT sending teenagers to jail translates into
A $2.75 BILLION SAVING to the taxpayer.

Canada's GREATEST Anti-FASCIST
