It would appear that some of our left leaning liberal friends don't believe that the American court system has a right to sentence anyone with mental disabilities to time in detention for crimes they may have committed. Better yet those that don’t use the politically correct terminology should be shunned for their travesties, and that may be an even worse crime..
To hell with the victims, let’s protect the criminal; that makes us feel better about ourselves because we care more than you do……
Call the retard what you like, he’s still retarded, terminology doesn’t change anything, nor does it change what he was sentenced for. Granted we may not know what all the parameters might be, but the judge does, and it appears that he felt that the punishment fit the circumstances.
IF that is not the case, there is always the possibility that they can apply for an appeal isn’t there…..
Damn, just because some half wit gets a serious punishment for what APPEARS
to be a very serious crime the bleeding hearts are all up in arms. Three things you need to remember:
(1) You don’t know for a fact that what the perp did wasn’t serious enough to warrant that sentence, the judge does.
(2) You don’t know what kind of care the perp will get once he’s incarcerated.
(3) You haven’t a clue if an appeal was filed or if one was/is even warranted.
Get a grip guys, as GS has pointed out repeatedly, we don’t know all the circumstances, but the judge does. IF
he was wrong there are ways to make it right, but in the mean time some dangerous individual will be looked at by professionals with no ax to grind.
As to McB's comments, how do you know he didn't do something worthy of a 100 year sentence, were you there?
