Let a jury put him in jail for life then. He may end up worse off than he already is.

He took a good man that day. We are truly diminished.

I hope Mark burns in hell.

It seems that the justice system here in Hawaii is broken (the police do excellent work to catch the criminals but the judges give lenient sentences for major felonies).
Why can't these judges get on the same page as the Police that catch the bad guys and the juries that convict them.
Aren't we all tired of felons commiting serious crimes and having rap sheets miles long back on the street again commiting yet another major crime?
Maybe these lenient judges will get their act together someday and save some innocent citizen the pain of being victimized by a repeat offender.

Soem of you are either ignorant or didn't even read the article. This guy is not being freed, now or ever, the ruling is merely a formality to insure that the innocent people like you and I receive justice and fair treatment should we ever be a victim of the justice system. THE LAW in this case says that it's US - WE THE PEOPLE- who must and will decide the fate - his fate- not the judges. So his case just goes back to the court for US to decide, and if you follow this case I'm sure that you'll find that he deserves to get what he had. This is what makes our justice system and our nation a civilized nation - or would you rather have Sadam insane running our country?

We have a lot of idiots in Hawaii, and many of them post right here. You make it sound like the Hawaii courts had a choice. They didn't. They were ordered by the Supreme Court of the United States to do this. Besides, the sentence wasn't the problem, it was the way the sentence was decided.

Any jury called back in to set the sentence shouldn't need that much time. Walk it, vote for life without parole and walk back into the court room and tell the judge. Don't need no stinking hearing or nothing.

I'd sentence the guy to life w/no parole in a heartbeat but I'd make sure we stuck around long enough to get a free meal on the judges tab.

I got to know officer Glen Gaspar when I had my buisness in Haleiwa town. He was a good guy. No one deserves to go out that way. I say life w/out parole is not enough. They need the death penalty.

Just give him the one year or parole that everyone else gets for murder here, unless he is haole than he gets 200 death sentenes.

If a jury is supposed to make the sentencing decision, why does the Hawaiian Paroling Authority always get to decide much much more lenient sentences. They are a major contributor to crime in Hawaii.
