Aren't plea bargains for when there is some kind of extenuating circumstance? Why are Massachusetts prosecutors using them in nearly every case? Yang is a cold-blooded murderer, he ought to be in jail for at least several decades. Now I know, I can kill someone I don't like, as long as I'm already a gangbanger and I do it on Myrtle Ave., I'll only get 8 years.
My heart goes out to the victims, who have been double wronged--first by Yang and again by the court system.

What a shame, 8 years for a life......Yang should not see the light of day in freedom, he should spend his life incarcerated..........he took the Family's freedom and peace of mind, and should pay for that with his own !!!!!!!!!

A soul was taken here. Why would anyone think it's ok to let a killer back out on the streets???
My heart goes out to you, the family of Jacky.
How would the justice system feel if it was someone in there family?

yeah its sad for the justice system to give freedom back when his sentence is done, even though he might not have pulled the trigger, he was there, definitely as an accomplis. I wonder what john yang is gonna do after, knowin in his mind he took one for his family, how is goin to face peter yang, the true unknown gunmen. Well in some minds they stayed as a pack, but the justice system should put his whole dam family in there. They just bad for society, just existing

Are you saying (as the WT & G you need to pay) someone was found guilty of murder and sent to prison for only 8 yrs? I think we all were screaming when they pulling the 15 yr time line as that was not right never mind this.

Someone just started a complaint list on here for this type of stuff, let us keep it going, go post this on there too. Was this 8 yr murder thing decided by Earlys office?
