    this is why people do what they do. kill a person what do you get? 25 years. why not the same the victim gets? this is pathetic. give them the same beating they gave to this person and maybe a lot of this will stop. judges are too easy.....

    I hope while they are in the pen some big old guy uses them, beats them the way they did this poor old man and then trades them off to the next one for a pack of Salem!!!!Thats what they deserve.But they will probably get early release because of our foolish Governor!!!!
