It's sad that Deputy Rein had to die over this pos jerk face wanting to escape. But to think an officer was overpowered by a man in a wheelchair doesn't say much about BSO. A weak cop shouldn't transport criminals and if they do, they need backup.

Since prior infrations and convictions are not permitted to be discussed, let me remind the World that Mazza is a hoodlum thug who has danced through the legal system, sentenced to long prison terms and always got back on the streets. He should have still been in prison when he comitted the robbery that got him the life sentence, was desperate to not serve the time abd killed the nicest most dedicated, fairminded guy who ever worked for BSO Corrections.
Even without eye witnesses, there is no doubt Mazza should get the needle.
Capital punishment is not a deterrant to crime, it's extreme punishment for comitting extreme crime. This guy deserves it.

The only reason this guy was in a wheelchair to begin with is because he knew how to play the system. He didn't need the wheelchair - if you watched on TV after he was arrested - he walked just fine without any help. He's a manipulative, lying cop-killer who deserves to die. Anyone who knew Dep. Rein knows that he would never behave the way this scumbag is accusing him of behaving.

MAZZA deserves 50 cents of ELECTRICITY for murdering the transportation Deputy.

Paul Rein was a very compassionate man and a great employee to the community and to BSO. His compassion led to his death in this incident at the hands of MAZZA THE MURDERER.

The only sentence and punishment for this DBAG is FRY FRY FRY In the CHAIR....ZAPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP PPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPPA for MAZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAA.
I'll pay the electric bill as well for his zappa

By all accounts, including those of prisoners Dep. Rein transported in the past, he was a kind, compassionate
man who treated the prisoners with respect and kindness.
May Mazza rot in hell for taking the life of such a fine man.

Can we let him go hungry and thirsty first, then strap him to the targets at the gun range, and slowly fire from the ground up? One bullet at a time ... each deputy takes a turn.

Millions will be wasted on a trial for this when it is soooooo obvious. I wonder how much taxes would go down if all these trials were avoided ?? If it is obvious, no trial should be needed. ZZZZZaaaaaaPPPP !

Or take him out to the Gulf Stream, chum the water.

Wait for sharks.

Cut him all over so he bleeds real good.

Toss him in, hands cuffed behind his back.

Do a pay for view special.

The proceeds go to the victims family.

The sharks eat.

The state does not have to occur any expenses burying him...

Rein should not have gotten HIMSELF in a position of vulnerability in the first place. He violated SOP's which govern contact with inmates while in transport.

Why was the back door open? Because Rein opened it.

Why was the van stopped in the parking lot? Because Rein pulled over.

IF Rein didn't violate these procedures, then he would be alive today. This is why SOP's are so important.

The back door had NO business being opened for any reason, period. All of you who let your emotions dictate your misguided hatred for Mazza should realize that just because Rein is dead, he should not be excused for HIS PART in his own death.

Rein didn't follow proceedure, plain and simple.
