Let the POS out in 2023, when he serves the minimum that he was sentenced to. Either that, or deport his a55 to the PI and throw him in a PI prison until 2023. Let THEM deal with it. Either way, just because he says that he has "changed" and now has remorse does not change that fact that he murdered an innocent bystander, and he should not receive leniency. Do the crime, do the time.

I had to read the entire story before I realized that he wasw not the one in the wheelchair.
The part about him being deported if he is released is laughable at best since the OBozo justice department has ceased virtually all deportations.

Cold-blooded murder and he only got 30 years with the possibility of parole? What a farce.

Let him ride the system. He'll die first.
