Consecutive sentences should be banned. It goes against mathematical and realistic logic. Humans do not have more than one life. Consecutive life sentences is cruel and unusual punishment

And an innocent person getting a bullet to the head isn't? They should give more ppl two life terms to keep them in jail b.c they will get out when they should never be allowed to.

It's not that. Their just saying, who could possibly serve 2 life sentences? One life sentence is good enough.

Is it? I personally feel that if the person committing the crime was given the same punishment upon which got them in jail to start with, crime in the US would go down tremedously, and it should be carried out immediately upon conviction. Sure would save this country a whole lot of money. The people in jail and prison live and eat better than most Americans do...

Well, lawyers and judges don't understand the simple basic practice of measuring time. One hour to them may be two consecutive hours.

Good News! A couple of corrections: Sgt. Thomas Ball made the initial contact and subjects drove off from the traffic stop. Officer Brad Bowen was the Albertville Officer that she shot at. Continue prayers for Officer Austin as he is still recovering.

This sentence is exactly what you are supposed to get for attempted murder of a police officer. What possessed this woman to start shooting at the police is a mystery to me. At least there is such a crime as "attempted murder" in AL, and you can be sentenced for it. In MS, where I live, there is no such crime as "attempted murder." They would have to get you on some other charge, like "assault with a deadly weapon." I think this stupid swine woman deserves this sentence twice over.

Ms. Moody got what she deserved. She has made things very difficult for Jason and his family. He most likely never be able to return his his career that he loved. My thoughts and prayers are with Jason's family.

A criminal can be up for parole "consideration" on a life sentence after serving 10 years or one-third of the inmate’s remaining life expectancy, whichever comes first.

Not near enough time for what she did. The only way she wouldn't get out is if her sentence was life without parole.

She looks like a real lady. Someone you would take home to meet Mama. At least she wore her summer teeth for the photo. Some are there and some are not!

That is an incredibly hyperbolic statement: "The people in jail and prison live and eat better than most Americans do....." Either the food in prison is catered by a four-star French restaurant or most Americans are unable or unwilling to feed themselves a diet on par with low-quality mass-produced meals that are purchased on the basis of what is the cheapest possible way to do this.

Every time I read the comments on this type of story there is all this misplaced indignant rage that results in people making ridiculous statements based on unfounded assumptions and a sense of victimhood, i.e. " the criminals are treated better than the good people." If this is so, then do something rather than post an ill-informed comment on the internet that won't change a thing. Or, you can continue to tell yourself "I try and try, but the world is against me, here I am doing everything right and the criminals are being spoon-fed caviar! The honest citizen who does right is a martyr, and I want a medal!"
This is a logically vacant argument: If people in prison "live and eat better than most Americans do..." Then why aren't we lined up outside the prison gates?
The system is not perfect, but it is not so backward to suggest that we should envy the meals people are getting in prison. I don't know anybody in prison and have never been to prison, but making fantastic statements that suggest the world is crazy and I am the pitiful victim of this twisted justice contributes nothing at all to righting wrongs or making the world a better place. I see these types of remarks over and over again everywhere and they are useless.

Yeah it's cruel and unusual, how dare that officer and his family suffer the rest of their lives. She got exactly what she deserved for attempting to take these two men away from their families and friends. She's already prevented the officer she shot from ever being able to work again, if she had succeeded in killing him would it still be cruel and unusual punishment?
