I saw it on the news, and the first thing that came to mind was, " NY needs a death penalty, and they need to USE it!"
Not only did he serve 18 years, he also had 8 years probation, which the police chief said were relatively uneventful. And then he wondered how this guy got a gun. It's pretty simple if you ask me. Illegally. He was a criminal, do they really expect him to follow the laws?
I'm sure he is warm where he is now. My only regret is that he didn't get there about 25 years ago.
Now I have something else to worry about when my father and step-mother respond to a call.
Thought and prayers for the familied of the 2 firefighters that lost thier lives, as well as the 2 that were wounded and the off duty LEO that was the first on scene. Also, a heartfelt thank you to all first responders. You run in, where others run out. Stay safe, and make it home to your loved ones.
If I have to explain why I ride, you wouldn't understand. Explaining sex to an alien would be easier than explaining the feeling, one that boils all that is going on in your life down to what really matters each time you are in The Wind. All I can say is, Life is not Life without it.
