    This kind of stuff can get the blood boiling, but getting the word out about these types of judges seems more important. To say that this was a travesty of justice doesn't even begin to properly describe the situation.

    This had a thread running a couple of months ago....I think the LEO is out of line. He was not in uniform, not on duty. Why should a criminal get a harsher sentence because he is a LEO? He should get a harsh sentence period.

    Here is the link to the other thread running:
    Shoot a LEO in the D, get "only" 14 yrs.

    This judge needs to be sent to the unemployment line.

    The defendant's mother claimed "He's innocent, but he pleaded guilty because he knew nobody would take his word over a police officer." Though the victim claimed he had shot the defendant three times during the attack.

    Q: Anyone know if the attacker had been shot/treated? Seems that would answer the question of whether li'l Johnnie was there or not.

    LEO or not, I think any victim would be enraged by such a sentence.

    There are times for decorum in the court. And there are times that the victims should be heard. This was a case of the latter.

    Why is it that when someone attempts to murder but fails they are given a lesser punishment than someone who succeeds?

    In many cases the intent of the accused determines the severity of the charges against him/her.

    In this case the fact the victim was a leo should have no bearing on the punishment.

    This knuckledragger should have recieved 25-40.
    He will be out in 5 years or so .Even with the 2 yr. mandatory commission of a felony with a firearm

    That is what the officer is complaining about.

    According to the article it sounded like it, although it never really confirms it, other than what the officer said....


    from article;


    I don't know if he was going to shoot me again, so I pulled out my gun and shot him three times."
    While that gunfight raged, Matthews said he believes friends of Proctor opened fire on the officer. "I was hiding behind a street pole," Matthews said.

    Matthews said he received death threats, and that police put a detail outside his east-side home for several weeks.

    "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."
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

    Some folks wonder why there are so many young violent offenders, flash mobs and the like. Not me. The criminal hustice system coddles the offender. I think the Leo was on the money.

    That is one judge that deserves to be removed from the bench, either impeach him or vote him out whatever it takes.

    Maybe he needed more range time, if he shot the BG 3 times at close range.... amazing he's still walking into court to get a sentence by a Judge.

    It seems more and more , people who try to kill or nearly kill their victims, do less time than a lot of other non--violent crimes.

    The only relevance I saw relating to him being a police officer is, that he ID'd himself as one, and then the guy tried to shoot him. Did the shoot because he was a police officer ?
