Very frequent news coverage of the mass shooting in Pittsburgh from both my local TV station and also the affiliates national news show, but absolutely no coverage of this story.
Set aside part of every appeals court's docket to hear capital offenses cases every year. If they need more time, then extend it. If they don't, then shorten it. But once a year, they focus on appeals of capital offenses in their jurisdiction and only on capital offenses.Glad the dad had the fortitude to do what needed to be done.Sad the kids had to see it tho.What have we become as a society that churches and public places have become shooting galleries.Personally I believe that shorter trials and swift punishment,not the death penalty after 20 or so years.Have one appeal if need be then off to meet your maker,all done within 6 months.I believe that would stop most of it as they are cowards to begin with.Just my .02 for what it's worth.
https://www.al.com/news/birmingham/...ing-identified-as-birmingham-24-year-old.htmlCourt records show Sanders pleaded guilty in July to possession of marijuana and carrying a pistol without a license. He entered the plea after taking part in The Dannon Project program. During his time in the program, according to a letter on file from a court advocate, Sanders completed a mental toughness program orientation and started several occupational training classes, including success lab courses and financial literacy. He had decided to pursue certification in forklift operation.
“Because of his compliance and dedication in our program, we are happy and eager to report…that Mr. Sanders has demonstrated a propensity of progressive success and law-abiding citizentry,’’ reads a letter to the judges in Sanders’ cases. “When our nation formulates plans to reduce recidivism and enable second changes, Antonio Sanders' post incarceration journey is the example all similarly situated participants should emulate.”
I'm convinced Rush reads T/A NetRush had it on his show today noting that it's not something the media will talk about. he also mentioned the thug is ... how best to put this... no longer a drain on society. Apparently he did turn his life around... to death.
Actually it was worse than a robbery. None of the reports so far say he even asked for money, he just went in and started shooting at people. Most robbers don't start out doing that.Ha ha!
Here's the extent of his financial literacy.
