It was his first offense! He got 162 years! He will die in prison!
“My first offence, and they gave me all this time,” said Davis, a pudgy African American with dreadlocks who spoke at the Federal Detention Centre in Miami. “Might just as well say I’m dead.”
Davis was convicted of participating in a string of armed robberies in the Miami area in 2010. His accomplices testified against him, saying he carried a gun during their crimes and discharged it at a dog that chased them after one of their burglaries. But Davis was not convicted of hurting anyone physically, including the dog.
I mean, it could happen to anyone, right?
Davis, who still maintains his innocence, was the only one of the six men charged who went to trial. The others cut plea deals that left them with sentences of nine to 22 years in prison.
According to the trial transcript, one of Davis’s accomplices testified that he fired his weapon on two occasions – at the dog who chased him and 11 days later outside a Wendy’s restaurant they had just robbed. He said Davis traded gunshots with a customer at the restaurant as he and three others sped away in their getaway car.
The armed customer outside Wendy’s, Dade County Public Schools maintenance worker Antonio Lamont Brooks, was unable to offer positive identification of the man with whom he exchanged gunfire. But he was uninjured and managed to squeeze off enough rounds from his 9mm handgun to leave one of Davis’s accomplices with a bullet wound in his left buttock.
So this asshole, with his buddies, robbed seven places, shot at a dog, and then shot at a human?
Fuck him. I hope he dies (of old age) in jail.
Davis was convicted of seven counts of possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, an offence punishable under the so-called mandatory minimum sentences imposed by Congress since the late 1980s.
Davis received seven years for the first of the firearm counts against him and 25 years apiece for each of the six subsequent counts. The law, as written by Congress, requires the sentences to be served consecutively. In prison slang, such sentences are sometimes referred to as “life on the installment plan” or “running wild”.
Now if we could only convince the North Carolina justice system to treat criminals the same way.
The idiot liberals piss me off. First they want to take my guns away because of crime I’m not committing, and then they are pissing and moaning that assholes like this criminal are getting serious time for serious crimes.
Is it wrong of me to hope that they get victimized by the criminals they loose upon society instead of having them prey upon decent human beings?
