Some people leave the world a better place for their having been there; others leave it a darker, more evil place - it would have been better for everyone else had these individuals had never been born.

Jesse Smithers is among the latter.

Shoot, shovel and shut-up.

Five years? Five little years. I look at that 20 year old kid and think he would only be 25 at the time his KILLER gets out of jail. I don’t know how his family can stand it. Such an injustice...

The "Knockout Game" does not exist.

It is a figment of the TEA parties fevered imagination.

Thank you sir. It is obvious the press is still covering for the Won.

Can’t have the reality of who plays the “knock out” game be shown.

A jury trial for Smithers was scheduled to start Tuesday. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 6, and both sides agreed to a term of 10 years, said Assistant County Attorney Will Brost. State guidelines called for 10 years and eight months.

Sounds like the short sentence is because of whatever idiots wrote the Minnesota law. Sounds crazy to me, but I guess 8 months of snow and having to listen to Garrison Keillor will do that.
