Sentence for chainsaw-wielding deserter

A man and his son from the south shore of Quebec City were sentenced this week, to 15 months, and two years in jail, respectfully for having attacked a bailiff back in December of 2012.

The son who had been in the Canadian Armed Forces was at the time refusing to return to Afghanistan because he had had enough of the Army and the fighting and simply wanted out. The bailiff went to deliver a letter which would have required some immediate attention but, the son refused to answer the door giving the Bailiff the finger through a window. The bailiff returned to his car and planned on leaving the letter under the door after having written the son’s name on the envelope.

Upon returning to the house with said letter the father suddenly came out brandishing a chainsaw and threatening to saw off the bailiff’s head.

While the father was twirling his chainsaw over his head the son suddenly came out with a knife and starting attacking the bailiff. The bailiff was injured by the knife on his hand and quickly retreated to his vehicle.

As it turned out both men had done time in the Army and for some reason had learned to despise the institution vehemently and wanted nothing to do with the Armed Forces in any way. Since the son was still enlisted he had been called up to report for duty but had no intention of going.

It is said the two men were suffering from PTSD and because the son wanted out, the father was more than glad to try and help his son even if he decided to go about it in a dramatic way.

The son got his wish and was discharged from the Army soon after the incident, claiming he was involved with drugs.

The two men will start serving their time immediately.
