Really sad. This scum offs an officer and gets to spend the rest of his life (?) being clothed, fed and taken care of by the State Of New Jerky. Guess it's OK to kill cops in N.J.

What happened to the federal law that was inthe process of being passed for cop killers? Mandatory Death Sentence? Sorry its only fair and honorable. The jails have got to be full to capacity by now.
