Road rage is an unnecessary evil of living like rats in an overcrowded box, and does happen – but to this extreme? Is this another cautionary tale, a traffic noble lie? Numbers and phrases may indicate so.
KITCHENER—They could have calmed down and gone their separate ways, but they didn’t.
Now one man is dead and the stranger who killed him with a knife to the heart is going to prison.
That was the bottom line Thursday as a case of road rage ended with a guilty plea to manslaughter in a Kitchener courtroom.
“It’s one of those offences that just makes you want to shake your head,” said Justice Gary Hearn.
Dead is Anton Radisic, 38, of Oakville, who was described in glowing terms by relatives despite a violent past.
Sentenced to three years in custody was Stephen McNaney, 44, of St. Clements, a single dad who answered a tire iron with a knife.
Cut loose altogether — in a plea deal that took into account blame on both sides — was his son, Martin McNaney, 19, who wore running shoes with his suit.
