Canadian Arnold Sanderson worked at a dairy plant for 12 years, and left the job 20 years ago. Ever since, he has held a grudge against several former co-workers, who he accused of tormenting him and “teasing, pranks, that sort of thing.” Sanderson became so obsessed with his former co-workers, especially Shawn Smith, that he never recovered. Since leaving the dairy, he has not had a full-time job.
In a nod to the more than 200 million guns in the U.S., ten years after he left the dairy, Sanderson said “if I lived in the States, I would be up for murder.” Well, the NRA (“Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.”) must just love this case.
Last year, Sanderson was taking his dog to the veterinarian when he happened to see Smith out jogging. Sanderson crossed into oncoming traffic, drove up on the sidewalk, and struck and killed Smith.
Sanderson plead guilty, and was sentenced to life in prison, though he is eligible for parole in 10 years.
