Joseph and Motta will spend their remaining time here on planet Earth thinking back and reminiscing about their former glory days of the good times that never was.

Hard to sympathize with such A holes like this who got their way by making everybody else around them uncomfortable.

So too the "victims." As another poster above noted, the beneficiaries of the crimes of those now departed "victims" can hardly be found to be believable in their staged "sadness" that appears more of some kinda pathetic p.r. pitch for a made for t.v. welfare, food stamp and project housing reality show.

So much of that freeloading rubbish, fake gangsta, overweight, single mom "my old man is in jail" complex polluting Hawaii today.

People may be starving in Africa, but their is a whole lot of cellulite in Hawaii, let me tell.

5 years after the crime was commited he is finally sentenced. The wheels of justice are agonizingly slow.

Good thing he wasn't in regular court or the system would have let him walk free. If Sakamoto was the judge, I guess you know what would have happened.
And Sakamoto is pretty miffed because that cost him a huge payday!! With that, his kids could very well have been able to head around the corner to Punahou instead of Maryknoll.

Is there any way Joseph can share a cell with Lankford and find out where the assethole hid the poor girl's body?

If anyone can get that info, I'll bet Joseph can.

One less gorilla on the street, but it's only a matter of time before his sons are taking his place as killers. Everyone in Waianae knows that the Josephs are a family of losers and it's only a matter of time before his sons take his place as killers. It's in their blood.

Two more reasons there should be a death penalty. Joseph and Motta will cost the taxpayers a large sum of money to sustain them in prison for the rest of their lives.

I pray for the families of Rod and Malu, as well as for the families of those who lost their lives. I also pray for the souls of all involved and directly impacted. We all have our own stories and our own sins.
