The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
I saw a story where 2 "Life in prison" murderers (for some pretty grisly killings) were paroled...
After 18 months.
(Note, this is one of the reasons why I still support the Death Penalty - after it's gone, "Life in Prison is unfair" is the next line of attack for the "reformers")
Socialists don't take death seriously, like Stalin said, after a few million it's just a statistic - so sentencing can fit into some kind of EZ-5-year planned model to keep the bureaucrats happy.
Wow, released after 15 years for murdering a police officer?
On the bright side, at least he was rehabi... oh.
They probably won't live too long. You lose that much blow through an eff-up like that, the heads of that syndicate will order them a bespoke Columbian necktie in the prison shower pretty soon.
Boggles the mind, dunnit?
Here's something similarly egregious:
"Woman charged in death of eviscerated pregnant teen".
She cuts out the baby (unknown if girl was alive or dead at the time) and tries to pass the newborn off as her own.
This is not the first, nor the second time she's attempted such a thing, and was sent to prison for 10 years, served 7, and was paroled.
Yup. Their police are starting to get the message, too.
Although that's a different case. I don't think their judges comprehend the concept of incentives, or of recidivism.
I'm actually not endorsing the idea that murdering a cop is any worse than murdering a civilian - but I support harsher punishment in either case.
