YVRguy saidI don't often disagree with CuriousJock but in this case the guy is lucky I wasn't the judge or prosecutor. A young guy is dead. I would have come down on the spy with a heavy hammer to send a message to other creeps who would be inclined to do the same thing.
I have no sympathy for him at all and 30 days in jail was an insult to the victim and his family.
You don't know anything about the case other than what you have heard form Ellen and Maddow.
Even worse, you are completely ignorant as to how the justice system works. Defendants have RIGHTS. A judge or prosecutor can only act within the law, and cannot make up new laws and new punishments as they go along. They cannot act according to their "feelings" about something. Go learn what the RULE OF LAW is.
The prosecution in this case would have loved to do as you suggest - but it COULDN'T per the LAW.
