Michael Roberto out and about

Notorious Calgary killer Michael Roberto has regained his liberty. The man who admitted being a part of multiple gang killings is now a free citizen. Roberto was originally convicted of three counts of first-degree murder in the New Year’s Day 2009 shootings at the Bolsa Restaurant. Rival gangsters Sanjeev Mann was killed along with Aaron Bendle and bystander Keni S’ua. Roberto eventually pleaded guilty to three counts of conspiring to commit murder, discharging a restricted firearm with intent and commission of offence for a criminal organization.
Prosecutors called it a “deal with the devil”. In a videotaped interview with cops, Roberto talked about his killings. “Five, and four of them were because of the war that I was involved in because I lost friends,” he said. “One was having to do business. Towards the end, I wasn’t even really about business or making money. It was always to get revenge because I lost people, I lost friends, and I knew they were coming after me so I wanted to get them first.”
