I'm glad to hear that a scumbag criminal did not recieve a lesser sentence because his victim happened to live.

I've always wondered why isn't Attempted murder not a mandatory Life sentence. A career criminal stabs or shoots someone several times with the intent to take their life yet if they survive by the grace of God there is no certainty of a life sentence. WTF is that bullshit?

This defies logic- why does justice reward the aspiring murderer with a lesser sentence if his target does not die?

The guy in the story was a Nut no doubt, but I've head ruthless ganganbanger types do time on three different shootings because their victims happened to survive.

It seems like a no brainer to me. Why do you think this has not been addressed???
