And, this I do not understand: Sanchez faces a maximum of nine years in prison, while Norwood faces up to eight years behind bars, according to prosecutors.
Excuse me?!! They tortured and mutilated Bryan Stow. In addition to the above grim details, they put out one of his eyes. This does not constitute attempted murder?????
In my opinion, after learning the details of what was done to Bryan Stow, this spells the eventual end of major league baseball in Los Angeles. IOW, the Dodgers need to move to another town. Decent people will not want to attend games at Dodger Stadium, on the chance they are in the company of diabolical thugs.
Did the DA bring them up on lesser charges than attempted murder???
Remember in the recent Casey Anthony case, she was found not guilty of the most serious charges. Many criticized the DA there for bringing the murder charges. The thinking was that they certainly would have gotten conviction on lesser charges such as accessory to a death, or manslaughter, or child neglect.
Maybe the same thinking is at work here. Depending on evidence, and having to get the evidence past a jury, they may be thinking they can’t go for attempted murder based on what they have. Just saying..........
It was apparently this boy who talked about it and was brought in for questioning - leading to the two arrests.
Not usually a proponent of ‘new’ laws - but “mayhem” doesn't cover MUTILATION.
We apparently need a law against mutilation. Mutilation is, in most cases, worse than murder. Murder I can understand in the heat of the moment, and I even think a murderer may well not offend again and can be rehabilitated. A mutilator..... the rest of their natural life behind bars seems the only sane answer.
