Ensure Barbara Kentner's Justice: Brayden Bushby Must Be Charged With More Serious Charges

On July 4, 2017 Barbara Kentner, a Thunder Bay First Nation woman died of her injuries she sustained the night on January 28, 2017 when she was walking down the Thunder Bay street with her sister, minding her own business when a vehicle passed by. In the vehicle, one of its passengers Brayden Bushby threw a trailer hitch as they passed, hitting Barbara in the stomach. Immediately after, Brayden was heard yelling, "I got one". Barbara's family and daughter needs justice served.

This was no accident? 

Bushby was charged with aggravated assault, shortly after the incident. A post mortem was scheduled for July 8, then a coroner's report will be completed in order to determine if more serious charges will be laid.

Barbara's family and daughter need justice and this case needs to be properly investigated by the Thunder Bay police and Crown prosecutor and Brayden Bushby must not just get a slap on the wrist!! He must be punished to the full extent of the law.

Canada is watching this case, especially the Indigenous communities across Canada, because we highly value our women and girls and demand justice! I wonder if Brayden has a sister or mother and does he regret his actions, now that he has ended the life of a beautiful First Nations women, who was in the prime of her life? Barbara was only 34 years old and would have still had many years left to live, if her young life had not been so callously snuffed out. Barbara's memories will be cherished by her friends and family because she was loved and her loved ones deserve healing.
