Rapist Brandon Seguin escaped justice only to commit more crimes. This time it was auto theft, followed by a high speed chase that police abandoned because it was endangering the public. The high speed chase occurred because Seguin had just robbed a bank.
This blog is EXCLUSIVELY identifying Brandon James Seguin as the truck thief spoken of in the article from the Facebook posting of Victoria Buzz. Read all about this slime ball. He raped a friend of mine. Before he did that though, judges let her and you down by letting him off the hook to be free to commit those crimes.
Catch & Release Is For Wild Life, Not For Criminals like Rapist Brandon Seguin
This is a situation that is intensely personal to me. Before getting into the personal part, I would first like to discuss the non-personal side. “Catch and release” is for fish, not criminals. Judges are failing to protect the public because our justice system is broken. There exists no better example of this than the judiciary releases of the violent and vicious criminal trash, Brandon James Seguin.
I don’t know if it is possible or what it might require, but I believe Brandon James Seguin, A.K.A. Matt Oliveira (www.facebook.com/matt.oliveira.311), A.K.A. Bee Benny, needs to be picked up immediately. He needs to be brought before a court of competent jurisdiction and then held without bail until his trial. That opinion is based solely on the track record that you can see on public documents, and not upon other violations by Seguin that have my blood boiling.
First, it’s time to understand some legalese.
Before looking at the specific facts regarding Seguin and his release onto the streets of greater Victoria, it is necessary that you are familiar with some legalese. You need to understand the criteria behind the basic terms “bail” and “probation”. Then you can understand how ludicrous it is that this slime ball is free.
Additionally, only through this understanding will you be able assess the performance of our judges in their duties. They are required to punish criminals, protect you and deter crime.
Understanding Entitlement To Bail
Bail is a privilege that may be extended to an accused as the accused awaits trial. The basis in law for bail is that the accused has not yet been found guilty of any crime. Therefore, he/she should not be required to sacrifice his/her freedom.
In BC an accused is entitled to bail under a three part test. For bail to be denied, Crown must show why the detention of the accused in necessary.
- In order to ensure that the accused will attend court.
- To maintain confidence in the administration of justice.
- To protect the public.
Criterion #1: Will The Accused Attend Court?
A judge is required to also assess the likelihood of conviction of the accused. If that likelihood is substantial, the judge might not grant bail under #1, above. This consideration is especially relied upon in cases in which the accused faces considerable time in jail if found guilty.
Still looking at #1, beyond that consideration, suffice it to say that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. So any decision as to whether or not the accused is likely to attend court can easily be made based on the track record of the accused. And if no track record exists, then the person should probably be allowed bail based on “benefit of the doubt”. Of course that assumes the individual qualifies under the other two criteria.
Criterion #2: Will The Release Of The Accused Maintain The Public Confidence In The Administration Of Justice?
When you have a day or two we can spend that time discussing this component of the three part evaluation. Depending on the crime, perhaps never come to a consensus. However, I do think we can all agree that granting bail to those accused of certain crimes would undermine confidence in the justice system.
How about granting an accused murderer or an accused armed robber bail? What about those accused of any of a number of other violent or dangerous crimes, such as assault? That being said, let’s focus our attention on the last of the three criteria. This is the criteria which I hope to show you that the courts are far too lenient, namely the criterion of protecting the public.
In making this determination, I think it is a “no brainer” that the various crimes discussed in the “public confidence” aspect of bail consideration, above, would also apply to “public safety”. Remember, although the question of bail might arise because of a particular charge, the courts should decide bail with an eye toward the person’s entire circumstances and history. It should not look solely at the currently charged offense.
Therefore, in making the evaluation required by this final component the court must ask itself a couple of questions. Is it probable that the accused will commit the same offense again? What is the probability that he/she would commit a different offense that might be suggested by the criminal history of the accused?,
Since bail is a privilege, the answer to the first part of this question is an obvious, “Yes”. Would it be an effective deterrent? Allow me to answer that question with three rhetorical questions.
- Does sending criminals to jail immediately create a more effective deterrent than allowing them to run free for six months or longer?
- Is not “swift” justice the most effective form of justice?
- Is failure to discourage an action not tantamount to encouraging that action? Think about this for a minute. You put a bag with a dozen cookies in it on the kitchen counter and don’t tell your kid that there will be consequences if he/she gets into the bag. How many cookies will be remaining as you reach in for your cookie twenty minutes later?
Bail Versus Drug Dealing, Versus Protecting The Public
Are street drugs a danger to the public? The answer is obviously, “Yes”. In fact, the law has averred they are dangerous to the public. If they were not, the government would have no reason to declare them “illegal”.
Accordingly, it follows by “black letter law” that anybody dealing in those illegal, street drugs is a danger to the public. That being the case, it also follows that anybody caught dealing those illegal substances could be, and probably should be, denied bail under the need to protect the public. This is especially true if there is a likelihood that such an individual might repeat that offense while out on bail.
Who Qualifies As A Member Of The Public?
I think the Canadian Charter makes it clear that everybody is a member of the public. We are all entitled to equal protections by the courts and by the various law enforcement agencies.
Therefore, a drug user, a street person, and even a prostitute, despite their failures in the eyes of society, are each members of the public. Accordingly, the courts NEED to protect them.
This punk mentioned earlier, whose picture represents this posting as the featured image, namely Brandon James Seguin, while out on bail when he should have been in jail, did a violent home invasion. In that home invasion, he batted his male victim in the knees to disable the guy. That is not why I am so outraged though. When you choose drugs as a way of life that kind of stuff goes with the game.
I’m outraged because this vile excuse for a human being raped a friend of mine. Wearing a mask, he entered the apartment through a sliding patio door and after disabling the male, proceeded to rob and rape the lady.
Halfway into his sick deed, he removed his mask, wanting her to see who he was. He was proud of raping a woman.
Rapist Brandon Seguin is also a Trophy Hunter
Then before leaving, he stole her identification. He’s a damn trophy hunter and wanted that ID so he could relive the moment over and over. Trophy hunters normally have more than one victim, so this guy is probably a predator with multiple victims. Ladies, you need to be aware of this the next time that he “macks” on you or asks if you want to do a “hoot” with him.
On “the street” and in jail, males who sexually assault women are known as “skinners”. When skinners go to jail, they are segregated from the rest of the jail community and put into “Protective Custody”. This is because other inmates will beat a skinner like a dusty rug on a sunny afternoon in the summer prairies.
I am outraged that this nineteen year old piece of human trash was free on the streets to commit his depraved rape. Although one can always find some sick sociopath to defend the character of people like him, you should be outraged too when you look at the charges for which he was not given actual jail time.
The rape about which I am speaking occurred in January of this year. But this pond scum was hiding so deep that it took me over two months to sleuth out his aliases. I finally found his Facebook page though.
The alarming thing is that prior to that rape he had already been charged with and found “Guilty” of several charges.
- Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking, Over $5,000 – Folks, $5,000 is a lot of drugs, indicative of a level of dealing that ranks him far higher than a simple street dealer.
- Possession of a Controlled Substance – Illegal drugs are a separate charge from the possession charge, directly above.
- Break and Enter – I guess breaking into your house, car or business doesn’t make him a threat to your safety.
This is Rapist Brandon Seguin’s criminal record from a few months ago. It has no doubt gotten worse since then. Neither was his stolen truck a part of it at the time I compiled his record, nor was his vile rape for which he was never charged. First though, look at these charges that have yet to be fully adjudicated. Then ask yourself why he wasn’t in jail? Why would a judge release him?
Seguin had already been found guilty of these charges on the right
The Rape Prosecution of Rapist Brandon Seguin Will Probably Never Happen
Will he ever get prosecuted for the rape? Probably not. He raped a drug addict and it is hard to prosecute when one of your witnesses is a part time drug dealer and addict. It is even more difficult when, your other witness is a working girl and drug addict.
These types of individuals are hesitant to appear in court for fear of reprisal. Additionally, their addictions get in the way of them keeping appointments. In fact, since the rape this predator had somebody send the lady a text threatening to kick her teeth in if she said anything.
That being the case, the only thing I can do to find justice for my friend and to protect you, the reader, is to make as many people as I can aware of what Brandon James Seguin really is all.
Since the rape, while still free on bail, Seguin has been charged twice with Possession for the Purpose of Trafficking and is facing a charge of Possession of a Prohibited Weapon. Additionally, he faces several Probation Breaches, as well as Possession of a Firearm.
IF THESE CHARGES, COMBINED WITH THE CHARGES BEFORE THE RAPE AND HOME INVASION, BUT EXCLUDING THAT RAPE AND HOME INVASION WHICH CANNOT BE CONSIDERED IN ANY BAIL DECISION AS HE HAS YET TO BE CHARGED WITH THEM, DON’T MAKE HIM DANGEROUS TO THE PUBLIC, I DON’T KNOW WHAT DOES.
She Is A Friend Of Mine.
I would be equally irate were she not a friend. But this hit even closer to home as she called me immediately after the rapist Brandon Seguin did his vile deed. I went to her at about 2:00AM. Then I gave her a few dollars and took her to meet a dealer. It was the only pain relief available to her. I then called a cop friend of mine and reported the incident.
Rapist Brandon Seguin will tell you he had a tough childhood. I Don’t Give A Damn!
Nobody should care about his tough childhood. It does not confer on him any right to rape and it does not entitle him to bail. I can guarantee you that my childhood was tougher than his.
Some Will Call Me A Rat. I Don’t Give A Damn. I Already Stood In Court Against Wyatt Prince for His Home Invasion Murder. All I can do is pray that I may someday get the same opportunity against Rapist Brandon Seguin.
- Child Abuse
- Woman Abuse
If I witness any of them or find out about them, I will call the police, and if I am a witness, I will testify against the scumbag who did the crime. As far as the rest of the crimes go, I’ll just wait for karma to nail the perpetrators.
This is a stand that I will always take. Those who might wish to call me names because of my convictions have an I.Q. lower than the one Rapist Brandon Seguin is signalling in his featured picture introducing this posting.
