Oh come on...at some point she has to realize that she should just cut her losses, own up to her mistake and just deal with the repercussions before they destroy her future entirely. If she didn't post such a douchy "apology", then public opinion might not be so far against her. Maybe if she just said "Hey, my bad. I'll take the incredibly easy house arrest sentence and count myself lucky." then maybe people will forget but seriously, even though her crime is relatively small compared to many others, we all remember her name because she's dealt with the situation so poorly.
I mean, even that douchy rich kid that tried to light the cop car on fire or that Asian kid smashing a window with a "THIS. IS. SPARTA!" look on his face...do we really remember their names? How the hell does this crazy bitch find herself in the media so often? She must either be supremely stupid or have some really stupid people giving her really stupid advice.
If she wasn't so confrontational, this would've been over long ago and she can get back to life. Honestly, she stole some pants. She didn't cause any damage so she would've gotten a slap on the wrist and probably no criminal record. Some asshole that claimed he was too drunk avoided jailtime...so she would've as well.
The reason she's so infamous is because she's been such a douche (and stupid) about everything. If she didn't type that douchey "apology", we wouldn't even know her name. If she wasn't so damned stupid in going out after curfew, she wouldn't be in this second mess.
I have a friend that got arrested for driving while his license was suspended. I call him a fucking moron for that like...every day because it's about the dumbest thing a person can do. Or that shoplifter with the off-duty cop. It's about the stupidest thing I can think of to commit MORE crimes while you're being prosecuted for a crime already.
Stanley Cup rioter Camille Cacnio testified Monday that a Vancouver police officer lied at her trial and that she received poor medical care when she was arrested for breaching sentencing conditions.
Cacnio, 24, was given a suspended sentence in September 2012 for looting two pairs of pants during the 2011 Stanley Cup riot, and had been ordered to abide by an overnight curfew for the first year of her sentence.
Shortly after the riot Cacnio was diagnosed with conditions of depression and anxiety, court heard.
Before Cacnio took the stand Monday, her lawyer Jason Tarnow said “her life fell apart the morning after the riot.”
“In my head, I have a lot of suicidal thoughts,” Cacnio told Tarnów. “All I can think about is life and death ... a number of times I have hurt myself.”
Attempting to explain why she broke her curfew on the night of Jan. 5, 2013, Cacnio said she had a sudden anxiety attack while dining out with her boyfriend that night.
Rather than call for medical aid, Cacnio said she decided it would be best to drive to her cousin’s house in Burnaby to get medication she had left there. She had been off her medication for about a week at the time, she said.
When she was pulled over at a Vancouver police roadside check en route to Burnaby, she lied several times to an officer about her drinking at dinner that night, court heard.
She was issued a roadside test and blew .009, well below the legal limit of .08.
Cacnio said she knew she was not drunk and she was focused on accessing her medications to avert a dangerous depressive episode.
“So you thought the best way was to lie?” prosecutor Daniel Porte asked Cacnio in cross-examination.
“I think that is very accusing,” Cacnio answered. “The best decision at the time was to lie about my alcohol consumption.”
While Cacnio portrayed herself as distressed about her medical condition, Porte attempted to paint her as evasive and angry at the time of her arrest.
She was driving eastbound on Powell Street at about 10:20 p.m. on Jan. 5 when Const. Barry Selver pulled her over in the 900-block.
After Cacnio tested negative for impaired driving, Selver ran her name on a police computer and arrested her for the curfew breach.
The car she was driving was towed, because her boyfriend was not licensed to drive it away.
Previously, Selver had testified that Cacnio was swearing at her boyfriend from the back seat of Selver’s cruiser. On Monday, Cacnio claimed she was telling her boyfriend to leave his phone on, and that she loved him.
“The police officer lied completely during court ... 100 per cent,” Cacnio said Monday.
Cacnio testified that when she was placed in jail for hours following her arrest, she told a doctor that she was not considering harming herself because “there is nothing in [jail] I can harm myself with.”
She had ripped a piece off of her jail smock and “tried to tie it around my neck,” but didn’t tell the doctor, Cacnio told Porte.
Porte attempted to discredit Cacnio’s claims that she did not receive proper medical attention in jail, and that she was in grave danger at the time of the probation breach and in following days.
“I’m going to suggest ... it really wasn’t that much of an emergency,” Porte said.
Ezekiel 25:17. The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.
She still doesn't understand that she broke her curfew and is banned from consuming alcohol.
Still trying to play it off and find excuses
Totally, dumb as a sack of hammers was invented for stunned cunts like her.
“The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place... and I don´t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently, if you let it. You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain't about how hard you hit... It's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward... how much you can take, and keep moving forward. That´s how winning is done. Now, if you know what you worth, go out and get what you worth.” - Rocky Balboa
