Officer Tommy E Scott was murdered three years ago last April, his murdere has been ruled competent to stand trial and now this !


On Tuesday I learned the DA's Sentencing recommendation committee is going to be declining to make Officer Tommy Scotts murder trial a capital case. This means the POS who dragged him to his death will only get Life without the possibility of parole. They cited because the suspect has no prior felonies, only minor brushes with the law and a history of mental illness it wasn't worth trying for the death penalty.  This is going to set a very bad president for future death cases because if you have no priors and a history of mental illness you'll basically get off killing a cop. There is one last hope that District Attorney Steve Cooley will over ride the committee and allow the death penalty to stay but from what I have been hearing I highly doubt it.

This is just plain wrong.  Now tax dollars will be spent to keep this dirtbag alive.  Obviously we have a legal system, but where is the justice system?

The legal system is made only for the crooks.  They get all the rights and then some.  We put down our lives everyday for the victims/citizens and this is the support we get.  We should thank all the bleeding hearts for this.

How ridiculous.  It will be much cheaper to just flip the switch.

I agree but he would sit on death row for 30 years
