Notice two interesting things here.
1) Despite the fact that pedo dad ERIK WANAMAKER has a history of violence, he's getting just less than two years in jail for child porn possession.
2) Notice that his son LIVED WITH HIM till age 11, and that there is no mention of a mother in the home. Why? Wasn't there one?
Just the typical daddy coddling we've come to expect from our fine neighbors to the north.
INVISIBLE MOTHER ALERT.

CALGARY - The son of notorious pedophile Erik Wanamaker says his father should be declared a dangerous offender and locked up indefinitely.
"Two years in jail? Come on," said Brian Eric Wanamaker, 32.
"He'll just keep re-offending and they just keep letting him go, it's ridiculous.
"I think he should stay in there forever, there's no way he should be allowed out.
"They're just going to keep watching him re-offend and hurt more and more people as it goes along."
Erik Wanamaker, 63, was sentenced Sept. 6 to two years less a day for possessing and accessing child pornography after a police raid on his home in December 2010.
Cops found thousands of images of scantily clad young girls as well as a handful of nude photos.
Once released, Wanamaker will be on probation for the maximum allowable three years and will be watched by the Calgary Police Service's High Risk Offender Program.
He is also prohibited from any unsupervised contact with minors and from any Internet use along with a lifetime ban from attending areas where children are expected to be.
Born in Ontario, Brian lived with his father in Sasktoon until the age of 11, when he and his six siblings moved to Calgary.
Brian recounted stories of extreme violence at the hands of his father against all seven children.
"He choked me unconscious once when I was a kid and when I woke up he said, 'don't ever do that to me again' and punched me in the face," he said.
"Who does that to a kid?"
Brian said he last saw his father five years ago and while he "hates" him, he doesn't let his last name define him.
"I don't care what anybody thinks, I really don't," he said.
"I get mad when people say, 'oh, your dad, blah, blah,' but what can you do?
"I'm not like that."
