Turcotte goes for bike rides alone
The Journal says Guy Turcotte goes for solitary, unsupervised bike rides in Pointe-aux-Trembles, always returning to the Pinel Institute where he’s currently living – so far.
On the one hand, the man was not judged a danger to the public, and it would not be easy for him to run away. On the other, there might still be a risk of suicide. But the underlying motive for this story is probably more to appeal to people who think Turcotte ought to be in jail, treated as a convict and not as a psych patient. Because it’s quite reasonable to allow a recovering psych patient some outdoor exercise, right?
