Detroit Man Takes Plea Deal In Officer's Killing, Avoids Life

September 26, 2011  | 

A Detroit man set to go on trial for first-degree murder in the shooting death of a Livonia police officer pleaded no contest this morning to second-degree murder, sparing himself a prison term of life without parole.

Terry Bowling, 49, stood quietly in court before Oakland County Circuit court judge Michael Warren, and answered "yes" when Warren asked him whether he understood the terms of the plea deal. Bowling faces up to 30 years in prison when he is sentenced Oct. 19.

There should be no plea deals offered for the murder of a police officer! This SOB should face the death penalty. Everyone who willfully kills a police officer with an offensive weapon should face DEATH!

Amen Eddie L. Any prosecutors that offer such disgusting plea deals should be fired! They should be fighting tooth and nail to have the death penalty imposed even if doing so might cause them to actually do some work and case preparation.

This "man" will not suffer prison life. Instead, he will always be treated as a "cop killer", and in Prison ,that is a badge of honor. Where is the "prevention" in a deal like this-we must understand that "open season" is now more open-remember this-and be prepared.
