Bored Gunman who Shot at Minn. Cops Gets Prison

August 20, 2012  | 

A 19-year-old convicted of shooting at two Minneapolis Police officers out of boredom last summer was sentenced to more than 26 years in prison.

The sentencing took place Aug. 15, two months after a Hennepin County jury found Malo Gomez guilty of two counts of attempted first-degree murder and two counts of first-degree assault.

District Judge Robert Small called Gomez's behavior "truly disturbing" and sentenced him to 13 years in prison for each officer. Prosecutors, citing the deliberate attack on police, asked for 18 years for each officer.

Wanna bet he'll be out in seven? You know, for good behavior. Shame he even made it to trial instead of the MEs slab. Maybe next time?? Stay Safe.

Hopefully, he will think about his actions everyday. Especially those days/nights when someone is whispering sweet nothings in his ear and that pulsating feeling he has wont go away. Good Luck AH.

26 years isn't justice. He should be given 26 days to say goodbye and then strapped to old sparky.
