I was attacked in my home and robbed by Dawn McSweeney on October 7, 1996. Since that day, I have been pleading for justice day and night.

You say my claim for justice comes too late: Once again our injustice system spits in my face. I started begging for justice in this case the moment I called 911 on October 7, 1996.
I have been pleading for justice in this case day and night for thirteen years.
Since October 7, 1996 everyone in authority has told me I am not eligible for justice. There is always a reason, an excuse. It is always, "Be patient" " Then, "It is not in our jurisdiction:" "Get a lawyer" "We are not responsible" "No one did anything wrong."
If I were rich and could have hired expensive lawyers, this case would have been dealt with years ago. But because I was never rich - but not eligible for legal aid - I must continue fighting on alone.
I will die fighting this injustice system. I will never stop fighting all of you who tell me why I am not eligible for justice.

Dear Ms Carter,
I was on vacation for the last 3 weeks, so unable to contact you after
you send me your first Email of April 26.
I have carrefully read your sad story and realised the ordeal you are
living since 1996.
Unfortunately, all these events occured a long time ago, much over the
3 years prescription to file a complaint at the Human Right's
I realised the difficulty you had to obtain justice, but I can only
suggest for you to persist to find a lawyer who can indicate the most
appropriate steps for you to take.
