Randy Quaid seeks refugee status in Canada

Postby d.yaro » Sat Oct 23, 2010 6:22 am

Here's a link to the story: Randy Quaid and wife apply for refugee status in Canada.

I had read a comment on a story about their arrests in Vancouver which mentioned something about a refugee status claim. I thought it was a wisecrack comment. Now it seems like they've actually submitted a claim. I don't know.... The more I read the more I think Quaid and his wife are 1) bonkers and 2) trying to avoid facing trial in the USA.

Bonkers indeed. They're also forgetting something kinda important: If Carradine was murdered, it happened in Thailand, not the US, what makes them think they'll be safer in Canada than here?

From what I can tell Randy has always been a bit...off tilt. This makes me think of the Mel Gibson movie conspiracy theory. My question is why would they want to kill you Randy Quaid? WHat makes you think you're worth the effort really? And the same for their friends. Why in the world would someone want to kill David Carridine? Not just kill but pose in the manner he was found. I think Randy and his wife need to stop eating the wild mushrooms and beam back down to Earth. And if someone is determined to kill them I would imagine ANNOUNCING PUBLICLY your intent to get Canadian refugee status would be a bad idea. Why not broadcast your new address while you're at it. If you're trying to hide rule #1 is DON'T SAY WHERE YOU'RE GOING/ARE!

I love it when people make my job easier. All that's left is how to make it look like an accident.

Maybe we're all underestimating Randy here. Maybe he's saying that and making it look like he's heading to Canada but really pulling a rope-a-dope. So if he says he's going north he's actually going south to Baha Mexico. I figured you out Randy Quaid!!!!!!!

The part I didn't quite understand was how their lawyer was reported as saying that Mrs. Quaid is a Canadian citizen. I believe the correct interpretation is that she is fully qualified to become a Canadian citizen since her father was Canadian. I'm quite sure we don't hand out citizenship like prizes in McHappy Meals.

Anyways, maybe they'll go back to California once they legalize pot there. :P :lol:

We already have our quota of crazy people, thank you very much!

They can go to Florida...they apparently have no limits for crazy people there.

Latest development...The US Department of Justice won't pursue extradition of the Quaids from Canada: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/story/2011/07/15/bc-quaid-extradition-denied.html. The official word on this: ""Extradition is generally reserved for more serious offences than that which the Quaids have been charged".
