    This dingbat woman knowingly bought a gun for a vicious convicted felon and gang member who used it to commit murder. That woman should have been found guilty of accessory to murder. In OK she could have been charged with murder. Instead a bleeding heart judge gave her two years in prison. That judge should be thrown off the bench.

    The scumbag shot a law enforcement officer:

    The criminal died in a trash filled ditch along the highway, how fitting.

    I agree. The straw purchaser's punishment was not severe enough.

    i agree. she got off way too light. she should have gotten at least 20 years or more. she knowingly bought an ex-con a firearm.

    justice was not served in any way in dealing with her case. at least the ex-con got what he deserved.

    How does this not get tied in with accessory to murder? It wasn't like she had no idea what he was going to use it for.

    Wow, seems like this BS happens more often every day. I don't know why society has degraded this far. I mean people brag about looking sloppy, dropping out, and gang banging too, now this?

    Accessory before the fact. She should be doing 15-20.

    People continuously step on the 2A rights of law abiding citizens and then you hear of a plea deal like this. Criminals rights our protected and we get screwed.

    The straw purchaser laws are flawed, makes prosecutors lazy cause a slam dunk is assured using a lesser statute. They dont necessarily punish the perp for the crime that occurred because of their act, just the act itself. She was an accessory to the crime because she participated in the preparation for the crime. On the other hand, millions of Americans have their rights restricted daily attempting to encourage criminals to follow laws they never will follow!

    There was no plea deal.

    The dingbat judge claimed the prosecution failed to prove the straw purchaser knew the gun would be used in a violent crime. Well, duh, judge: The idiot knew the scumbag had a history of violent crime.

    i hope the state of TX tries Vigil for accessory before the fact in the shooting of the deputy.

    This is elegant proof, once again, of how poorly gun

    control works.

    Now when is the DOJ going to go after all the straw

    purchases made in Project Gunwalker, and Fast & Furious?

    By the very folks who are supposed to be setting a

    proper example for all of us

    "ignorant, irresponsible, private gun owners"?

    THAT is where it all goes wrong. It's like charging a drunk driver simply for driving drunk but not charging him for the death he caused when he hit another innocent driver.

    Yet, when a law-abiding citizen defends himself, they throw the proverbial book at him!

    "Well, we've got you on assault with a deadly weapon, but you also fired three shots, two of which hit the possibly innocent person who was in your living room trying to signal police with the shiny butcher knife to help him get out until you slaughtered him. That third round went across the street into your neighbor's yard, striking a tree. Since you fired the bullet, you get charged with trespassing, as it didn't have permission to enter your neighbor's property, and we're checking with the Arbor Foundation to see if they want to press charges for your felonious weapons attack on the tree. Oh, also, the EPA would like to talk to you about the possible damage to the environment from the lead that could leech into the ground if that bullet that struck the tree split open."

    A person that is morally innocent is going to fight any and all charges pressed against them. In turn, they are going to get the maximum sentence for each "crime" because the law abiding citizen is not going to accept a plea deal.

    You can bet once the judge took accessory to the crime charges off the table, the defense couldn't wait to cut a deal.

    Lead is inert. Lead can not leach into the ground or groundwater. To cause biological harm lead would have to be turned into a powder and injected into the groundwater with great force.

    This all supports my theory that LE LOVES criminals,

    and HATES LACs...

    Thereworf, LE does not love criminals, the court system clearly does. LE can't do anything more to them once they arrested them, it's up to judges and prosecutors to take it from there. Sadly, a plea deal leading to a quick conviction is seemingly the standard operating procedure.

    These are the kinds of items that show our GREAT nation is still in decline...that goes for SO MANY areas of our daily lives. Until we get out and VOTE with a loud clear voice, "WE" will keep losing ground to insanity like this.

    That is unbelieveable! Where are the anti's when this kind of stuff happens rather than worrying about the LAC?
