Detroit Officer's Killer Convicted

March 23, 2011  | 

Jason Gibson was convicted on Wednesday of fatally shooting Detroit Police Officer Brian Huff, following an 18-day trial that included 447 pieces of evidence. A Wayne County jury deliberated for about three hours, and then announced guilty verdicts on all 17 counts against the 26-year-old, reports the Detroit News.

Gibson will serve a mandatory life sentence.

Huff was killed May 3 while he and other officers investigated a reported break-in. Gibson shot Huff twice in the face as the officer entered the duplex, then ran outside, firing on and injuring five other officers.

He should get the death penalty, if would kill an armed police officer what would he do to an unarmed citizen?. Why should we pay for him to live while the familys of the officer killed have just bad memories and a empty place in their hearts, not to mention the how the wounded officers fare.

Too bad the cops just did not kill this criminal crack head then we would not have to pay to house him the rest of his life.

I don't mind all the fatal shootings in Detroit as long as they are trash on trash and not cops or law abiding people.

Let the drug addicts and dealers kill each other.
