"activist" judge ruling by their opion instead of law

Wild TurkeyWild Turkey Member Posts: 2,427 ✭✭✭✭

"A man acquitted last month on grounds of self-defense in the shooting death of a University of Toledo football player after a fight at a Toledo pizza restaurant nearly two years ago has been sentenced to nine to 12 years for three extra shots he fired."

"Judge Joe McNamara said during Friday’s sentencing that Mitchell displayed “an immense disregard for human life.” He also decried “a horrible proliferation of guns in our community and every community across America.”

Wonder what the higher courts will think of this!

    Personally I hope they overturn this ruling and sanction the Judge although the Jury did find him guilty of a so-called crime... from the article: "But jurors convicted Mitchell of another count of felonious assault for firing what Mitchell said were “warning shots” at the fleeing Douglas and at least two pedestrians."
