By Maria Babbage, The Canadian Press

BELLEVILLE, Ont. - The unprecedented, sadistic crimes of convicted sex killer Col. Russell Williams have earned him a place among the worst criminals Canada has ever seen, court heard Thursday as the final chapter in the shocking case drew to a close.

"The depths of the depravity demonstrated by Russell Williams had no equal," Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert Scott said as he sentenced the once decorated officer to two concurrent life sentences with no possibility of parole for 25 years.

"One suspects that he has contained for most of his adult life sexual desires and fetishes. ...Russell Williams will forever be remembered as a sadosexual serial killer."

Should have been consecutive with no chance for parole for fifty years ... one life sentence for each life ...

The next step is that the Crown will seek to have him designated a Dangerous Offender, which will keep him locked up for good. It’s been done before.

“It’s still unclear whether the sickening videos Williams made will be destroyed. Burgess said the matter is still being discussed with the families as they may prove “useful” if Williams ever applies for parole.”

Here, that would only serve to invite an appeal, and the laws change. Of course in civilized nations the sentence would have been execution and appeals would not be an issue.

25 years for two serial rape and torture homicides.

Whoopee.

Should have been death by strangulation, twice, just to make sure.

In consideration for the Canadians, once the sentence has been carried out, he would be allowed to apply for parole.

“And he recorded it all in videotapes and photos. Sick, really sick.”

A common occurrence. Many also keep souvenirs. They remember these moments as the highlights of their lives, the reason for living.

No longer a Colonel, and no longer decorated, thank God. He doesn’t deserve to see the sun for the rest of his life.

The Canadian military, which has been rocked to its core by the stunning revelations, wasted no time in declaring he'll be drummed out of its ranks and stripped of his medals.

I hope it's formally and publicly (TV) done IAW Her Majesty's Regulations and tradition.

Wow. This guy’s seriously messed up. Seems clear that they were lucky, in a way, to catch him after only two kills. He wasn’t going to stop for a long, long time and many more murders.

"The next step is that the Crown will seek to have him designated a Dangerous Offender, which will keep him locked up for good. It’s been done before."

It looks as though that's not going to happen

From the article-

"The Crown didn't seek dangerous offender status, however, saying it was "superfluous" given his life sentence and would only prolong the suffering of families."

Sources told The Canadian Press the federal government is considering court action to reduce the amount Williams can collect from his military pension.
