    "I just can't figure how someone who tries to kill a police officer can be walking the streets in a few years," he said. "This is our criminal justice system."
    I can't understand how ANYONE who tries to kill another can be walking the streets in a few years. The more heinous and callous such attempts get to be, the clearer it seems that tossing out the "bad eggs" might be the only viable option.

    Sentences don't seem to match the crimes....you would think a person attempts murder there wouldn't be much difference in the sentence fo if they had succeeded. The fact that he's a bad shot is the difference between life and a couple years. Intent was the same.

    Isn't this what has been wrong with our justice system since ...forever?

    Murderers and rapists get the same sentencing as the guy growing some mary jane in his backyard (or maybe I should have described it vice-versa). The only difference is, the victim in this particular situation is LEO.

    Officer was absolutely not out of line. The sentence was low for anyone being shot like that, not just a ploice officer.

    I agree with those that say the fact that the person being shot was a police officer should have no bearing on the sentence. A persons job description, race, sexual orientation or any other group membership should matter. The only thing we should be considering is that a person got shot and the shooter was not adequately punished.

    Thanks for the link to the previous posting.

    The reasoning, to me, is very simple. The LEO told the BG that he was a LEO, and if a scumbag will still attempt to murder an officer he sure as heck won't give two squats about an average Joe civilian. The BG thusly proves himself to be completely without a conscience and doubly unworthy of enjoying freedom.

    While I do agree that the guy should get a harsh sentence no matter whom he tries to kill, this is one of the ways to enhance a less than perfect system. I personally believe that a scum like this deserves nothing more than a quick death.
