7 life terms + 140 years

| November 8, 2012

That’s the sentence for Jared Loughner in a Tucson courtroom today. I guess that pretty much seals it for him, well, until someone decides that the gun should be punished instead. From Fox 10, the victims had their say;

Patricia Maisch, who helped tackle Loughner on Jan. 8, was the first to speak in court. “That beautiful day our mental health system failed us. For six that failure was devastating and unimaginable,” Maisch said.

Suzi Hileman addressed the court saying, “I will now walk out of this courtroom, and I will never think of you again.” She looked directly at Loughner, who sat still looking at her and listening.

Mavanell Stoddard, whose husband was killed in the shooting said, “You took my precious husband and ruined my whole life. He died saving me.” Her husband died trying to shield her from the gunfire. She said she hoped Loughner could can find Jesus, “I forgive you. I don’t hate you. I hate the act you performed.”

Congressman Ron Barber, injured in the shooting, said, “We saw the courage of strangers coming to our aid. We saw great kindness as we began our healing. Now you must pay the price.”

Giffords and Kelly addressed Loughner together. Giffords stood next to her husband as he read a strongly worded statement. Kelly said, “For the first and last time, you’re going to hear from Gabby and me…Pay attention.”

Kelly said to Loughner, “You tried to bring us into your dark, evil world. But know this, you failed.”

“You may have put her bullet through her head, but you did not put a dent in her spirit,” he said.

No word from Sheriff Dupnik, whose reputation took a hit that day that still hasn’t recovered. Although it looks like he salvaged his office in this election. We, the other victims, still haven’t heard from Linda Lopez who speculated that Loughner was an Afghanistan veteran.

    It’s a shame that we’re so civilized that we can’t handle him the way he should be handled. But he’ll die a forgotten footnote and I can live with that.

    Seven life terms plus 140?! Not enough!
    Let him run a gauntlet. Then if he survives to the end (without medical treatment), THEN put him in the gaol and leave his carcass to rot.

    Fire a .45 round into his forehead.
    Bullets are alot cheaper than feeding this S O B for decades.

    If it weren’t for the fact that it’s useful to the victims, in cases of breathing feces like this one, I would totally bar anyone other than the attorneys and the judge (and other court staff functionaries) for cases like this one.

    No press. No audience. No infamy. No satisfaction. Granted, the POS will get some of that upon reaching his final destination, but at least he wouldn’t get the enjoyment from the sentencing.

    And yah, Linda Lopez hasn’t been called on the carpet nearly enough for her moronic contribution to this.

    The man is insane. Whether it is life + 140 or life or even 140 days. The man is insane and time does not matter to him.

    But for us, each year Loughner is incarcerated costs the taxpayer about $25,000 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incarceration_in_the_United_States)

    Say Loughner lives to 80. That’s 56 years. At $25K per annum that’s $1,400,000. That won’t include the cost of Loughner’s psychiatric/psychological treatment (meds and counseling and crayons) (Obamacare is going to send medical costs through the roof, and the ITAB [see also: “Death Panel”] can’t not permit a prisoner-ward of the state to be denied medicine) not including an opportunity to earn college and higher levels of education.

    Loughner, as a convicted murderer, will live better longer than most vets suffering from severe TBI and other mental and physical health issues. Even better than most pro football players with TBI.

    And Loughner can never be set free. Ever.

    So why not hang Loughner by the neck until he is dead and donate the money saved back to the people of Arizona and/or the US of A? Loughner won’t even notice.

    Why can’t people just be criminals and do fucked up shit? Why do some people have to figure stuff out?

  7. SFC Holland says:

    Only wealthy nations can afford to think like this.

  8. MCPO USN NYC (Ret.) says:

    May he live in hell on earth, depart with no notice, and live forever with the devil himself!

    Well said. I am from Arkansas, we had Judge Parker…his quote is perfect here.

    “You will hang by the neck until you are DEAD, DEAD, DEAD.”

    Kudos to 3 & 5. My thoughts exactly.
