Aargh! No trial!! That was one of the reasons I was so happy with the outcome. The mere thought of crazy California and a months-long freakshow media circus, replete with a hundred Geraldo wannabes and an idiotic jury pool that would free the blasted scumbag and turn him into a hip TMZ celebrity! Hardly need another lesson in how pathetically demented our justice system is, not to mention the country as a whole.
Still a shame about the cabin. That’s the only really sour note in all this. It apparently even had some historic value. Too bad the cops couldn’t drag him outside and then light him up. That would have been ideal.
Once we accept that it is ok for the cops to become judge jury and exocutioner of a cop killer, how long before they start killing people for other crimes? More importantly, how long before they start killing people for aligning against the state?
