James walked away from his half way house in Vancouver BC late at night of April 6 (Last Night). James has a criminal history dating back to the 1990s that includes conviction of sexual assault,  attempted murder, and  various weapon charges in Calgary Alberta. This is not the first time that James has gone missing from a parole house. November 2011 he was missing for a week before he was found in Port Mellon, on the Sunshine Coast. I can’t help but wonder what is wrong with our justice system. A High Risk Sex Offender who has gone missing in the past is again living in a half-way house? The News Release does not say when James was placed in the halfway house but I assume he was sent back to jail after he went missing last time. Not sure that the public had any notice that this guy was living in the Vancouver area either! And why if these offences happened in Calgary Alberta is the Sex Offender staying at a halfway house in Vancouver, BC?
