    Wow! Glad the bad guy got what he deserved for attempting murder. :steamed:

    I would have had much more "choice" words for the judge. Lets have him take 5 rounds to the body and then see how he feels about the shooter getting 14 years. We all know damn well the BG will probably serve no more than 8 at most.

    I get so tired of the sentencing recommendations from the DOC. Last time I checked, their job was to supervise and "rehabilitate", not decide how long that needs to take.

    Reading the article reminded me of all the times the victim believed it was my fault their case was not taken, found NG when it was a no brainer (in a trial by judge), or they couldn't get a CPO.

    The last couple weeks were going far too well, and I needed a little reminder of how completely expendable some jurisdictions make their Officers. Don't ever forget the guilty has voting family and friends.

    If I were king, attempted murder would carry the same penalty as murder. Why should someone get a lighter sentence just because they were too inept to succeed in their murder attempt?

    Let them out of prison and they may not make the same mistake next time.

    WOW - how is he innocent??

    "Proctor's mother, Shannon Proctor, said her son is "a wonderful person, a hard worker and a great father."

    "He's innocent, but he pleaded guilty because he knew nobody would take his word over a police officer," she said. BLA-BLA-BLA someone always has to mouth the words no matter how absurd!!

    I hate that CRAP. He tried to murder an identified officer for pocket change and it sounds like he had a backup posse with him! Worthless scum. Innocent?? How'd he get 3 holes in him?? ARG!!!

    BTW I board a plane for Detroit later today and will be there through Sat. No knife, no gun (I never check luggage but may have to start very soon - MO reciprocity for CCW is great) just my 'out-of-towner in a rental car and my 85 year old mother-in-law (a Detroit native living in St. Louis now). My wife landed there yesterday for a conference downtown. Apparently the casino has done nothing but bad for the downtown street life, etc.

    And people wonder why we're jaded...

    Prayers for the officer's continue recovery and hopefully a return to the job.
     
  7. Well, this is the reason many states have mandatory sentencing for certain offences. Of course, that creates problems as well.

    Gas stations can be tough. Most I go to have areas around the pumps that can hide an attackers approach.

    It is sad that the greatest nation in the world also has so many dangerous cities.

    Remember, the victim was a trained police officer who was armed. Most Americans go through their lives unarmed in the most dangerous places in the country.

    This misguided judge has allowed the court to perpetuate and expand the criminal mindset in the United States. The legal jeopardy in committing crimes is low and this judge effectively signed over part of the city to criminals.
     
  8. No offense, but WTF! Bring your gun! Trust me when I say you do not want to walk around Detroit unarmed.

    Attempted murder?..BS

    Why is the attempt different from the accomplishment of it.

    I agree with the comments.

    This guy should rot in jail.

    Sounds like one tough cop. Shot multiple times and still fighting. God bless him.
    The sentence is like a slap on the wrist.

    Does anyone know about how much time the good person who robs and shoots innocent people will actually do?

    And does this perp get a lighter sentence because his attempted victim happened to be a cop?

    The judge was most likely trying to save his own life, gangs are very powerful.

  15. Its just sickening to see a judge let a guy off like that. The perp should never see the outside of a prison again. I hope this judge gets a cold stare from from every cop he passes in the corridors of the court house from now on.

    Could be, I'm sure the letters from the family among others relayed some messages to him. Guess he's looking for future voters.

    We just had a guy get 18 months for a home invasion of a elderly man. A legitimate home invasion, mind you; not some drug ripoff.

    Insane in the membrane.

    14 years would be okay, for each charge. Two times 14 equals 28 years without the ability for parole; sounds better, to me. However, lets not actually make any sense.

    Cases such as this only make vigilante justice seem more appropriate.
