Moses Lewin, the 25-year old TTC stabber, had been let out on bail twice since June 2022, once again proving the ineptitude if Canada’s justice system.
Last week, video footage filmed inside a Toronto subway car near Eglinton Station captured two men kicking, punching, and hitting one another.
Lewin is then seen chasing the victim down the subway car while wielding a knife, as passengers scream and flee to the other end of the train in horror.
Toronto police have since arrested Lewin and charged him with attempted murder.
Canadas’s catch & release system
Details have now emerged that indicate Canada’s catch-and-release bail system is permitting criminals to roam freely even after they’ve skipped out on bail for a previous crime.
In April 2022, Lewin was charged with stealing a motor vehicle, possessing break-in instruments, as well as possessing 10 license plates.
He posted bail for $500, then dodged his court appearance. The judge issued a bench warrant on April 26.
Two months later, still out on the streets, Lewin was again charged for stealing a motor vehicle, as well as failing to comply with his previous release order, fighting with a peace officer, and breaking and entering.
Incredulously, the Newmarket court released Lewin on $200 bail, either ignoring or oblivious to the bench warrant that was already out for him.
Lewin again failed to show up to his court appearance.
TTC stabber’s other crimes
In November, police charged Lewin with damaging windows, possessing break-in instruments, being at-large on release order, and carrying a weapon.
Again, Lewin was somehow let free and told to show up to a January 11, 2023 court appearance, which he once again ignored.
The fact that a repeat offender like Lewin was able to walk freely on the streets is becoming a common story in Canada.
In May, Muorater Mashar killed an Edmonton mother and her child in a random stabbing. Mashar was living freely near the school he stabbed the victims at, despite having a lengthy history of committing violent crimes.
Mashar killed 35-year-old Carolann Robillard and her 11-year-old child, Sara Miller, just months after he’d committed a violent attack on a public bus, for which he was let out after serving just three months of prison time.
