French judge uses cannabis smoking as excuse for actions of Sarah Halimi's Muslim murderer

France's disastrous judicial system struck again, as another judge continues to resort to excuses for the sake of a violent man:
Lawyers acting for the family of a French Jewish widow murdered in her own home during a frenzied antisemitic assault have vowed to appeal the ruling of a Paris court that will potentially allow her accused killer to be released without trial.

Last Friday, the judges in charge of the preliminary investigation into the murder of Sarah Halimi — a 65-year-old former teacher who was severely beaten and then tossed from a third-floor window on April 4, 2017, by 27-year-old Kobili Traore, her neighbor in a Paris public housing project — ruled that Traore could not be held criminally responsible for his actions because he had been smoking marijuana heavily in the hours before the killing.
In other words, he's saying even drug abuse alone is not a serious issue, and that addicts cannot be held accountable for any violence they may or may not have committed because of its influence. Furthermore, if he really was under the influence, how could he even have climbed into her apartment window that easily? Yet more excuses by somebody who's clearly not interested in justice, no matter the victim's background.
In addition, according to a source close to the case who was quoted by the leading news outlet Le Figaro, the preliminary judges also dismissed the contention that Traore’s crime was aggravated by his violent antisemitism.
Which is nothing more than another excuse for ignoring antisemitism, plain and simple. The judicial system is clearly a horrible mess, and badly in need of serious repairs, as much as anything else.
In an editorial published on the CRIF website on Monday, the organization’s president, Francis Kalifat, derided the notion of Traore’s diminished criminal responsibility because of his chronic use of marijuana.

“What is this new rule that makes a murderer who voluntarily took drugs unfit to stand trial, when a driver who caused an accident after using the same drug would be treated with greater severity?” Kalifat asked pointedly. “Who are we kidding?”

As Kalifat noted in his editorial, however, despite its shocking nature, Friday’s decision by the court was not unexpected.

“This ruling comes as no surprise because, since the beginning of this case, we have witnessed delays in trying to present this murderer as insane,” Kalifat wrote.

Meanwhile, the BNVCA — a Paris-based group that works with victims of antisemitic attacks — had warned over a month ago that Traore would escape a criminal trial.
It's been clear since the start they intended to go that way because of how demonic their own minds are. I should hope they're enlisting the Simon Wiesenthal Center along with other reliable sources to speak out against this.
