yeah i lived in brantford. he was never liked back home cause everyone hated his attuide. i hated his attide he's fucked. i don't know if any of you know him as long as i knew him. his mom was murdered around x-mas time he was in a foster home at the time. that dosen't give him the excuse to murder another person. shit if he did it. he deserves life. im sure he would want the person that killed his mom to serve life wit no parole. he's also a father. talk to his baby mamma for more info. don't judge his family they have no control over chris he's his own man.

No one will never know Christoper's whole story; I feel that the Social Services Department in Ontario should own up to what has become of Christopher. "They" helped the father take those boys away from the mother, never allowing her to see them, even tho' the father was a drug addict, and now has dimentia, he was the one who raised those boys to what they are today. Unfortunately, a lot of crap was given to those boys about the mother which was totally untrue, the dad made sure they were woman haters; he, too is totally responsible for those poor boys' upbringing, how can you be nice to someone especially when you've never known anyone to be nice to you? If a lot of these children who have been apprehended by the Social Services Departments all through the provinces could be brain washed, there is no hope. Incidentally, the couple who murdered the boys' mother, where given very little time, the man received 6 years in jail and the woman was let off with 53 days, served time. Where is the justice in that, not to say anyone should retaliate and take matters into their own hands, but, that is so heartbreaking. Yes, I definitely feel for the poor lady who was murdered and left so many children behind, the immigration laws need to be changed so that if the gov't is allowing one person of a family into the country, what is wrong with bringing the entire family over? There are many criminals let into this country and no-one does anything about it, or when do we ever hear about their criminal activities, never, because the gov't doesn't want us to know, and it doesn't want to take the responsibility of having to say "oops, we made a mistake" back you go to where you came from. On January 8, 2008 there was a comment from "someone" who seemed so full of hate and to my way of thinking was asking for a Philipino who was in jail to murder Christopher when he arrives there? That person sure wasn't any better than Christopher. Poor Christopher, he must have such a convoluted way of thinking, he just can't figure out what is wrong with himself, everyone putting terrible ideas in his head since he was a very young child. That must be extremely confusing for him. As you can tell by the comments from people who live in Brantford, that right from the beginning there was something terribly wrong with their upbringing, those boys should have never been given to their father, the father also just used those boys for getting easy money, saying he was a single parent, which wasn't true in any shape or form. He ran away with those boys when they were all very young and took them away on the mother and kept the mother from seeing them! Again, the Social Services Department in Ontario, believed him, WHY (???) because he was a nonaboriginal. That's where it all began!!!!

To the person who said "No one will ever know his story" You must be one of his DILUSIONAL family memebers.. he is an absolute psycho, people live lives like his AND worse every day but we don't murder people.. we don't randomly beat 41 year old woman. If he had MURDERED some mouthy drug addict like himself, I wouldn't even be making this comment. But that SCUM BAG killed a mother of 5. So if, AND WHEN, her children DO NOT turn out like him, I'll be the first one to say I TOLD YOU SO. You're just giving him and his disgusting family members a cop out. Oh poor me, my life was surrounded by bad things.. He was a big boy he could have CHANGED IT. Not RUINED other peoples lives.
You, along with his whole bloodline, make me SICK.

Perhaps I could shed some light into what exactly about our society could create a person like Chris, and allow this to happen.

Spare me your right-wing screeds about his whole family being disgusting, as you lustfully wish for the same violent attack to be reciprocated on other humans. Chris' actions in taking this woman's life is truly despicable and regrettable, but already his younger brother has been stabbed in a retaliatory attack.

Hoping for violence against these types of people, only foments the hatred that enforces the divide between races, classes, and above all else, people.

Chris Watcheson, or Chris Riddell as they were known in Brantford is the product of a complete and total breakdown in the growth of a proper young man.

Brantford Ontario, is a small po-dunk town with very little prospect for anyone. A place where class strife is very evident in such areas as the boarded-up downtown.

It is a horrible place, that unless you possess the moral tenacity to rise above, will corrupt you to the fullest, until you are nothing but a feeble crack addicted alcoholic loser.

The Riddell's were simply the product of LOUSY upbringing. Seperated from their mother, to live with a man who is mentally challenged, where physical violence, drugs, and alcohol played a large factor.

I once saw Chris' dad fire two rounds from a revolver pistol into their couch, and there were literal bullet holes in the ceiling.

The Riddell boys were mentally warped from a young age, and I find it miraculous that their sister managed to actually find a decent career for herself and separate herself from a lot of this bullshit (as far as I know, she was attending school I believe when I last saw her many years ago).

Take a bunch of sick-minded little boys, raise them in violence, send them off to elementary school to smoke cigarettes in Grade 3, smoking weed by Grade 6, and dealing by High School, and you have a recipe for trouble.

So don't ask why this could happen. Ask why a society could allow this to happen.

Ask why a man who was convicted so many prior times for assault was given no type of constructive help or counseling, and is simply moved out to the street to commit more atrocious acts.

Maybe it's time to care a little less about your precious tax dollars and your "Fuck you, I got mine" attitudes, and pontificate on just what kind of absolutely ridiculous society we live in, where a kid who attends Echo Place Elementary School, and Pauline Johnson High School, can be a drug addict, alcoholic, murderer.

And a white kid from the North End, who attends St John's High School, can go on to be a University Graduate, when both live in the same city, divided into rigid class structures.

So cast off your chains of class-servitude, and tear down the boarders. We are one people. Brother and sister, and we must strive to be better people. Not cogs in a system to support the rich and multi-national corporations. ACTUAL PEOPLE.

While I'm quite aware of the circumstances that could create such a monster,(I recognize that as a problem and concede we should try our best to correct the mechanisms that allow it) but I will not let my heart bleed for CJW childhood at the expense of the families and lives his adult self has destroyed.

It's horrendous that his humanity was taken from him at a young age, but the circumstances of his upbringing do not change the unfortunate end result (nor do they dictate the fate of people of similar circumstance).

I will not shed one tear for CJW. Society has perhaps sowed the seeds of this tragedy but Laoagan, her family and other families have reaped the crop and that's where my sympathy lies. As far as I concerned they've had the burden of paying societies debt to the CJW's in this world, in full and with criminal interest.

If something can be learned by keeping this monster alive then do so. If not, I would rather see him humanely put out of his misery. That's more than he offered his victim(s) and that's as far as my empathy goes.

I honestly don't think anyone in his/her right mind would admit his/her guilt to such an atrocious crime. Makes me wonder who put the statement together and had Christopher sign it, so clear and concise in every detail. What was promised to him if he signed the statement and admitted guilt? It's bad enough he did it, why would he remember it so clearly, surely if he did all that he said in the statement there can only be one verdict and one sentence? I can only imagine the worst senario was created by someone other than him, as according to him he had been drinking
and was on drugs? Yep, yep it had to be put together by someone other than Christopher. As far as I am concerned he will meet his Maker and that is the only ONE who can truly judge him, enough already, let's just wait for the verdict and see how the "appeal" turns out.

To hateful. You do not know anything about his Dilusional family members, except what you may heard in the news. Listen up; Christopher James Pelletier Riddell,is this person's real name and his alias is what you have read. He grew up in /B.C./Ont./whose knows where else, as a Riddell and lord knows where else his dememted dad took him to, to collect welfare and drugs from other provinces for his prescription abuse. He changed his name when he turned 18; most likely because his real family name;
/Christopher/Pelletier/Riddell - was tained.
It will be interesting to find out what this person was up to in all the provinces under his father's family name.Riddell.
