Two Philadelphia women sentenced for running down bar patrons
Inquirer ^ | Feb. 17, 2012 | Joseph A. Slobodzian

Sharonda Cheeves and Jesslyn Williams got into trouble because they were drunk and disorderly, got ejected from a North Philadelphia nightclub, and just wouldn't go home.

On Thursday, they couldn't go home. Cheeves, 24, and Williams, 23, were each sentenced to multiyear prison terms for hitting six people - killing one - as they circled Club Motivation four times in their Chevrolet Monte Carlo on Sept. 4, 2010, picking off patrons on the sidewalk.

"I know you don't know me, so you don't know that's not who I am," a weeping Williams told Kadella Davis, who as "Mama Breakfast" hosted a weekly dance party for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people at the club.

...

Judge Benjamin Lerner sentenced Cheeves - who was driving when the car hit and killed 27-year-old Alisha Moore - to four to eight years in prison and a $1,000 fine. Cheeves will be on two years of probation when released. Williams, who got out of the car before its fourth and fatal lap around the bar, was sentenced to two to four years in prison and three years of probation, and fined $2,000.

Why isn’t anyone calling for stricter car control laws to prevent massacres like these? Can we at least ban the dangerous Monte Carlo models?

I doubt there are any stats openly admitted to the public - so is it just me, or are lesbians quite prone to violence against other, umm, women?

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.

Worked at a Repair Depot for DEC back in the 70’s. They were over represented among the Techs and Assemblers. Monday morning they would come into work looking they were at Gettysburg. And Heaven help the girl who’s Butch controller thought they were flirting with one of the guys.

Gays can be quite violent towards each other. Current culture tends to inhibit male-on-female violence, but those restraints to not apply to women-women or men-men violence.

North Philly.

Didn’t need to see the pics and wouldn’t hang out there or even do business there.

I did once and never went back.

8 years for the driver and 4 years for the passenger.

Obviously the judge doesn’t hold homosexual lives in the same regard as those of straight people.

/sarc

I bet this will be counted as an anti-LGBT “hate crime”, though.

Maybe they had their driver's licenses suspended also.

Reading the details, this seems like 2nd degree murder. Clearly the driver intended to harm people and one was killed. Four to 8 years is a travesty.

If she had shot 7 people and killed one, she’d being doing life, and the moonbats would be calling for stricter gun control laws.

Dyke and Bulldyke, drunk as they can be,

First they're swappin' spit, then eatin' at the "Y",

Then runnin' down the people and watchin' them die.

Triple protected class: black/gay/women. It was a plea bargain: lenient sentence in exchange for guilty plea, women had no priors.

You don't get to look like those mugshots without priors of some sort...

Come on, it’s Philadelphia. Minimum sentence guidelines only apply to Whites in Philadelphia. It’s called Restorative Justice.

In Philadelphia they have reduced the reported murder rate by not including murders committed by those under 18. The gangs learned a long time ago to put the guns in the hands of the juvenile members because the sentence would be so light. It’s just how things are done in Philadelphia.

I read that Moslems learned the same thing and have the teenagers in their families do the honor killings...

So “Mama Breakfast” got two to four for running down obuma voters. I guess slaves aren’t worth that much as back in 1860.

Maybe the judge that handed down the sentence is a queer and is just following Eric Holder’s example of protecting his/her “people”.
