HOMELESS MANíS LIFE WORTH 10 YEARS?

The two men who beat a homeless man to death by hitting and stomping him to death was only sentenced to 10 years with probation is 4 years.

This is a tragedy that a homeless manís life could only be worth 4 years.

This was a senseless crime that could very well be repeated in 4 years. This is a case where the punishment does not fit the crime.

This was premeditated manslaughter. They did not accidentally stomp on this manís head and he accidentally died.

O.J. is going to get life and no one died and he didnít even touch anyone.

Some thing is wrong with the justice system in this country.

I AM NOT AGREEING WITH YOU THAT THEY SHOULD HAVE GOT MORE TIME FOR THE FACT THAT I HAPPEN TO BE FINLEY FULTZ'S BABY GIRLS MOTHER, I REALIZE WHAT HE DID WAS WRONG AND SO DOES HE BUT MY THREE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER HAPPEN TO LOVE HER FATHER VERY MUCH AND NOW HAS TO GO MANY YEARS WITHOUT HIM THERE. I KNOW THAT FINLEY IS A VERY VERY GOOD PERSON AND THATS JUST HIM HE MADE A MISTAKE EVERYONE DOES BUT TO PUNISH MY DAUGHTER FOR IT IS COMPLETLY WRONG SHE LOVES FINLEY SO MUCH SHE STILL HAS NIGHTMARES CAUSE HER DADDY AINT THERE WITH HER. AND I ALSO KNOW FOR A 100% CHANCE THAT THE ONLY REASON HE DID WHAT HE DID WAS BECAUSE OF ME, HE COULDNT JUST STAND AROUND WATCHING ME RUEN MY LIFE AND DOING THE THINGS THAT I WAS DOING, SO HE DID'NT KNOW HOW ELSE TO VENT OTHER THEN GETTING INTO A FIGHT, AND I ALSO DON'T BELIEVE THAT HE TARGETED A HOMELESS MAN, ITS NOT IN HIS CARECTER WHAT SO EVER HE WOULD'NT TARGET ANYBODY IMPERTICULAR. THE HOMELESS MAN DEFENTLY HAD TO HAVE BEEN DOING OR SAYING SOMETHING TO PERVOKE HIM INTO BEATING THAT MAN OTHER THEN BEING ASLEEP ON A BENCH OR IT COULD HAVE EVEN BEEN A PRIOR DISAGREMENT OR ARGUMENT. ALL I KNOW IS DOES MY THREE YEAR OLD BABY GIRL KHYLIE ANN DESERVED TO BE PUNISHED WITH A MAXIMUM SENTENCE? FINLEY KNOWS WHAT HAPPEN WAS WRONG AND HAS APPLOGIZED MANY MANY TIMES FOR IT BUT GIVEN ANOTHER CHANCE TO BE ABLE TO LAY DOWN WITH HIS "SUGA BUGA" WOULD BE ENOUGH TO LAST A LIFE TIME. FINLEY ALREADY HAS TO LIVE WITH IT ON HIS MIND AND ALSO HAS TO DEAL WITH HOW EVERYONE ELSE FEELS ABOUT IT. PLEASE NOT ONLY FOR HIS SAKE BUT MY LITTLE GIRLS SAKE LET HER DADDY COME HOME WHERE HE BELONGS!

dyehard39,

what you don't seem to realize is that this sentence is the norm for a first time murderers offense (if only one person was killed), weather it's for a 14 year old child or homeless bum. What offends me is that the perps will not end up doing the full 10 years. With good behavior, over crowding they'll get out in 7 or less. Free to commit new offenses, if that next murder is a single person he'll probably be sentenced to 15-25 and again he'll not serve the whole sentence. IMHO the only proper sentence for this killing would be the death penalty, but with all these bleeding hart libs, there is no justice. When the worth of your love one or any other innocent person is 7 years of the murders time, the murder who is getting 3 squares a day while the murdered family members have to struggle to live on with the pain and perhaps financial hardships, there is no justice. It's just madness.

If the average murderer does 4 years, then why does someone get 5-10 for growing pot. It's ok to snap a neck, but smoking a joint is a no no. What kind of irrational world do we live in? I doubt anyone ever considers these two issues together.

IMO, one of the people on the street should have murdered them, an eye for an eye. If more people learned to fight, and carried weapons, then stuff like this would not happen. If you have a sword, and the man across from you has a sword,then why would you start attacking him, such an action would be a reckless disregard for your own life.

The man's daughter was punished by his own actions, not the states.

It is not fair. Taking someones life is the ultimate in unfair and it is ridiculous to think the state is at fault for him not being there for his kids. Murderer's go to jail or get killed - they should be punished specifically to teach their kids a lesson.

You all have no idea what really goes on in peoples lives or their families. Fuck you and your opinions. My brother finley has done nothing but raise his daughter. His daughter was his life and that was taken from him. he has to explain to khylie ann FULTZ his daughter why he cant be there on a daily baises. He has to live with what hes done on have it follow him every where he goes plus the four yrs. of missing out on his babys most important parts of life.

Taken from the LOLOTV.com news:

"RENO, Nev.(AP)- Two men have been sentenced to 10 years in prison for stomping a homeless man to death in what authorities called an alcohol-fueled "thrill seeking attack."

The sentence was imposed Friday on Christopher Maciolek, 20, and Finley Fultz, 19, who earlier pleaded guilty to a voluntary manslaughter charge. They will be eligible for parole in four years.

James Beasley, 55, was asleep on a downtown Reno park bench in
September 2007 when the pair kicked him in the head several times and stomped on his head and torso, police said. He later died at a Reno hospital.

The two then tried to attack another pair of homeless people, but fled when a transient woman beat them with a stick, officers said."

So, if they are both underage, where is the person who gave or sold them the alcohol in the first place.........can anyone say "accessory to murder"?

And then this........"Prosecutor Roy Stralla said the pair wanted to take out their anger and hatred on others. Both men said they had troubled childhoods and long criminal records.

Maciolek and Fultz both asked Beasley's family to forgive them, saying they had never intended to kill him."

So they have both admitted they were not intending not to kill this person..........hello, what exactley did you think might happen if two punks started kicking a sleeping person in the head.....pretty obvious what will happen, drunk or not......you just can't be that naive. So what you've had a bad upbringing so you need to take it out on others less fortunate than you to prove your manhood? Pathetic.

Lets see, Findlay has a 3 year old duaghter and he's 19. Not exactely the age he should have been raising a family, although from this story he sure wasn't doing that......better things to do at night like attack people. One can only hope for the best for his daughter....sadly another child being raised by a young and single mother, guess we all know how that will end up.
