Orange cop killer sentenced to 40 years in prison
I've met Det. Shields few times. He's was a "giant teddy bear" One of the nicest guy I have ever met. And you know why I hate the Liberals? Only 40 years with a mandatory of 85% time served? This county is one of the most liberal counties in this state. If I have the opportunity to work in a different county, I'd take it in a heart beat! We sacrifice our lives each and every day and this s***head knowingly kills a cop and gets only 40 years?

A reputed Bloods gang member was sentenced to 40 years in prison today for the shotgun slaying of an Orange police detective outside an abandoned house two summers ago.
Raynard Brown, 20, apologized to the family of Detective Kieran Shields in court today. But Brown, who previously claimed he thought he was shooting at someone coming to kill him, also said his actions were justified.
"I was trying to protect my family, and if you were me, you would've done the same," he said.

Brown pleaded guilty in Superior Court in Newark last month to murder and weapons charges stemming from the Aug. 7, 2006, shooting death of Shields behind a home on Taylor Street.
Noah Addis/The Star-LedgerSpectators, many from the Orange Police Department, listen in the courtroom as Raynard Brown is sentenced in the shooting death of Orange Police Detective Kieran Shields.
Shields, 32, in plainclothes but with a badge hanging from his neck, was responding to reports of shots fired when Brown stepped out onto the rear porch of the home and fired at the officer with a shotgun.
The detective was wearing a bullet-proof vest, but the pellets struck him in the neck and collarbone. He was pronounced dead at University Hospital in Newark.
Brown pleaded guilty Jan. 3 after Assistant Essex County Prosecutor Gregory DeMattia agreed to recommend that Judge Betty Lester sentence him to no more than 40 years. Lester gave him the full term, making Brown eligible for parole at age 54.
He could have faced life in prison with no possibility of parole.
Shields was a married father of three and the son of a retired Orange police officer.
