Career criminal arrested: sexual assault, 78 prior convictions
Tracy Lloyd Caza, 51, a local career criminal with 78 prior criminal convictions, is a man many may not be able to put a face to a name, yet have heard about in the media, which also hit the international media worldwide.
Tracy Lloyd Caza, after being released Dec 09 from a federal prison was arrested again by Vancouver Police and soon released yet again by the British Columbia justice system after an alleged sexual assault on the morning of Dec. 31, 2011. Tracy Lloyd Caza promised to appear before the courts January 06, 2012 to face charges of assault, sexual assault and uttering threats to a local woman who contacted police.
Tracy Lloyd Caza remains free to walk our streets for the time being, and if history repeats itself after 78 prior criminal convinctions spanning 20 years that we know about, while free for now. most would agree he'll likely be plying his trade on his next victim.
While we may not recognize him, we've all heard of him. His penchant for for preying on the elderly is reknowned.
In 2008, Caza's last incident involved a 91-year-old woman, recovering from a leg amputation at the Vancouver General Hospital, whereby he slipped into her room and relieved her of her jewelry, slipping her rings off her fingers. Canadians upon hearing this were outraged, demanding who did this be caught. After a long manhunt, viewing surviellance footage from the hospital, Tracy Lloyd Caza was apprehended and sent to the big house.
There was no word if the jewelry was ever recovered.
British Columbia's Health Minister at the time George Abbot stated publicly "The thief (Caza) is the lowest form of human life" mirroring the sentiments of every person who heard about this story.
So Metro Vancouverittes, take a good look at his photo, ingrain it to memory, and know he walks among us, for now. Favourite haunts are old age homes, hospitals and wherever elderly persons are to be found.
As we all have elderly parents, beware, be vigilant, cause he is out there.
Karma being what it is, has yet to catch up with him, but we can all hope something akin to a permanent solution befall him.
While the catch and release program by the British Columbia Justice system is legendary, are we as Canadians doomed to revisit these scenarios time and time again?
It appears the victim once again falls by the roadside. As Canadians, clearly rehabilition does not and will never work with the career criminal as we are treated to an endless stream of career criminals, once released walking among us to victimize us once again.
Lawyers and armchair psychologists and politicians all seem bent on keeping career criminals out of the penal system, as prison overcrowding being their valid reason.
It seems career criminals enjoy the paycheques of ill gotten gain, when the lack of penalties make crime pay.
The C-10 Anti-Crime Bill introduced by the Federal government has many tied to the Canada wide provincial judicial system crying it will put a strain on them, including the building of more prisons will cost too much. I say "Suck it up Princess", you are all paid handsomely ($200,000 a year), than the majority of Canadians could hope to earn in ten years.
If the judiciary dwelled more on the issue at hand instead of hand tailored Santa Suits, maybe the penalties will closely match the crimes committed.
That is the only way to ensure Crime never pays, cause 78 criminal convictions by one person shows you are not doing your job, a job we pay you to do. Career criminals, (after 5 convictions) once identified need to be locked up and throw away the key!
It is the least you can do as our paid Lord and Protector to ensure Canadians are safe from harm.
If ever there was a case for elected judges, this clearly is just cause.
