Cop's kin angered at appeal

Revulsion may be too gentle a word for what Gordon Garrett feels about the man who murdered his police officer son five years ago.

"He should have been hung, or shot, or electrocuted or something, for what he did," said Garrett, 79.
Troy Davey was just 18 when he slashed open the throat of Const. Chris Garrett, a 39-year-old Cobourg police officer lured to a dark parking lot by a phoney robbery call.

In February 2007, Davey was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison, with no chance of parole for 25 years.
His appeal of the conviction is now winding its way toward a hearing.

The elder Garrett and his wife are angry they'll have to relive their son's murder so long after they buried him.
"I think (Davey's) awfully lucky (we) don't have the death penalty anymore," he said. "That's what he would have got."

Transcripts of the month-long trial have now been completed and Davey's lawyer is finalizing key documents, an appeal book and a factum that will be filed with the Court of Appeal for Ontario.
Once those documents are submitted, a date will be set for a hearing.

"We should be able to file sometime this summer, I hope in July," said Christopher Hicks, the Toronto lawyer representing Davey.

By not executing him, we place our Correctional Officers at ( increased ) risk. As if they don't have enough already. And ourselves, if he ever escapes or gets parole.
