    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    It makes a person wonder what sort of drugs the judge was on when considering what possible good the felons had to offer society. Here, I'd certainly be a bit bummed about being so light on the sentencing. Murder? 25yrs plus. Attempt but fail? Half that. Make a solid emulation of it? 10yrs minimum. But that's just me.

    The citizens were "just" injured. They weren't crippled or killed. So, in Australia, perhaps four years is their legal standard.
