As long as those 1,000 years are not served concurrently

Only if he’s put in the prison’s general population.

Does that mean parole in 15?

Assuming he doesn’t take the “deal” (and gets convicted) would Ohio get around to executing him in anything less than 1000 years?

Only if they really don't mean "without parole."

What it really means is life in a cage, for the rest of his life.

If he lasts 20 years, that'll cost the taxpayers about $1.4 million. To feed and house him and pay his doctor bills.

To which there is the inevitable thought that a bullet, or an injection, or a rope would cost a lot less.

But it wouldn't. Death penalties always cost more than life in prison.

So warehouse him away forever. At least he won't kidnap any more girls.

The last 990 might be easier than the first 10.

God will make it right- not up to me.

Much as I might fantasize at times to be the Avenging Angel- He has it covered.

First disqualifier for the job is wanting to do it.

He best take it.
Ohio does have the death penalty.

I’d go along with such a deal only if it includes smashing his nuts with a sledge hammer.... One at a time of course.

Actually, there are some basements in High River, AB, that remain uncleared of mud and other things from the June 22 flooding. These would be IDEAL for him to spend the remainder of his life, sans filter masks, coveralls, safety glasses and boots. But what’s a little black mould and bacteria to such a tough guy!

Here I fixed the headline:

Prosecutors to offer life without parole plus 1,000 years in Cleveland.

That’s enough to make you wish for the death penalty.

Hey! he is not a White Hispanic!
He is Puerto Rican, just like that juror blabbing about Zimmerman today.

I wonder what she thinks is just in this case?

Pathetic.
Kill the beast or close the courts.

This plea deal is barbarism pure and simple.

Are you allowed to send "care packages" to prisoners in Ohio?

Just wondering.

That's a significant positive as far as I'm concerned.

They should tell him he has been chosen to be a guinea pig for the antidote to death and inject him with saline solution.

Then when he starts to think about how horrible it will be to live for 1000 years in a jail cell he will beg for the death penalty.

I’d like to see parole without life, as in a bullet to the head.
