    Bad-man sentenced to five years for accidentally shooting best friend

    Not quite sure where I come down on this. I admit, the attempted cover up was compounding another huge error in judgment, but there must be more to the story-5 years? A lesson on safety as always.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Don't drink and play with guns. Don't ignore every possible safety rule. Don't lie to the police to cover up your own stupidity and criminal negligence. There, I just saved you five years in prison.

    The sentence seems about right to me...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Sounds to me like a headshot would be extremely unlucky,unless drunk boy was aiming it at his friend and pulled the trigger,he is lucky he only got 5 years,he looks like he's gonna have a rough time in prison

    The sentence sounds about right to me too. I like the judge's quote.

    This guy got a life's sentence anyway.
    He'll be locked up behind an accusing conscience until the day he dies.
    Wouldn't ever want to be where he is.

    Alcohol, youth and guns. VERY bad combination. 5 years seems light to me. He killed another man.
