It's easy to despise a brain-dead dumbass like you, Jerry. Your arrogance is only exceeded by your stupidity, you pompous idiot. Your posts are like cartoons.

Couldn't open the article... I wonder if any family claimed the body or if we used tax dollars to dispose off...

and another A Thought...

Eliminate the publicity of the book and the fact that the victim was a cop; does anyone who would literally hunt down another human to kill deserve any mercy? Life without parole seemed more than fitting to me.

Gregory Powell should have been paroled years ago.
You & I and anyone with a brain knows this.

But there are a lot of idiots in the criminal justice system.

Judge Jackie Glass was stupid enough to claim OJ's 19 year sentence was in no way payback for what she believed he got away with in LA. But in the Las Vegas incident, no one was hurt.

But OJ got more than child molesters do. Only an idiot would believe the bs Glass spewed. And only an idiot would think Powell wouldn't have been paroled without the publicity this case garnered.

RIP, Gregory.
