NEW YORK - A weeping Remy Ma was sentenced to eight years in prison Tuesday for shooting a woman outside a Manhattan nightclub...

1. The victim took two .45 slugs in the belly at point-blank range. I'm amazed she pulled through.
2. "Remy" shot a woman twice and left her to die. I think a little more than 8 years is in order.
Just goes to show you the people who advocate a large caliber over accuracy are full of it. Shoot straight if you want to kill someone. As to her sentence, how about the death penalty because she meant for the person to die, therefore she should get the death penalty, IMO.
Taking out the trash but it only made it halfway down the driveway.
She failed to follow the advice of “the old man” in the movie Miller’s Crossing:
“Always put one in the brain”
The wiseguys call it putting 2 in the hat.
How can we judge whether the verdict was just without pictures?
I think you’re misinterpreting what large-caliber advocates are actually saying. A large caliber weapon is a good defensive weapon in that it gives you better stopping power (i.e., the ability to stop an attack immediately) than a smaller caliber weapon. Both large and small caliber weapons are about equally lethal — if you get hit in the right spot, and equally nonlethal if a vital organ isn’t hit.
How about you stick her weeping, crying face on the cover of her albums, alongside a pic of the woman she tried to murder in ICU? If hip hop is all about “keeping it real”, let’s show something real, like her getting gang raped in the shower by Midge and her bull dyke posse.
There is a photo attached. The judge’s leniency will probably be understandable to some.
There’s no such thing as “stopping power”.
The one-shot-stop statistics between .45 and 9mm have a 5% difference, IIRC.
It’s always been about 1) shot placement and 2) penetration.
"Lock me up! Lock me up!" he then shouted to court officers, who escorted him out of the courthouse.
The couple had planned to wed last weekend at the Rikers Island jail, where Smith has been incarcerated. Correction officials said they called off the wedding after Papoose showed up with a handcuff key.
Smith's lawyer, Ivan Fisher, said Papoose had a key but denied that it could be used to open handcuffs. Papoose, whose real is Shamele Mackie, hasn't been charged.
Ahhh.. what a lovely twosome these punks are.

You mean our court system actually sentenced one of these thugs to jail time?
Uh...what else "could" it be used for?
Yep, and now that she has her bona fides and some "street cred" I'm sure her career will take off.
Papoose be dreamin about sipping Night Train on de French Riviera.
For me, the .45 1911 is a perfect home defense gun. No question about its stopping power, but its heavy. I like a hi cap 9mm for carry — with modern +P ammo, I don’t worry about it not being tough enough.
From the ballistics tests that I’ve seen, the mighty .45 is still the pistol of choice, though.
But... I'm not a big-caliber ideologue; if you can refer me to a website that backs up that statistic, I'd appreciate it very much and I'll definitely reconsider. Cheers! :-)
It’s persecution, I tell you
The Army went with the .45ACP over the .38Colt because of penetration, not “stopping power”, as experienced in the Phillipines.
12” is considered nominal penetration (just about right).
“Stopping Power” simply cannot be defined.
