Ohio School Shooter Gets Life Without Parole

The Ohio teenager who killed three classmates in a cafeteria attack a year ago showed no remorse as a judge gave him three life terms in prison on Tuesday.

During sentencing, 18-year-old T.J. Lane wore a T-shirt with the word "killer" written on it and said, "This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F**k all of you." View the statement here.

Geauga County Common Pleas Judge David Fuhry sentenced Lane for the slayings of Daniel Parmertor, 16; Demetrius Hewlin, 16; and Russell King Jr., 17. Lane also wounded Nate Mueller, Joy Rickers and Nick Walczak, who is paralyzed from the waist down, on Feb. 27, 2012.

On Tuesday, Lane smirked and laughed as the victims' families made statements in the courtroom. After Lane's defiant statement, he stuck out his middle finger, reports the Plain Dealer.

In addition to the three life sentences, Lang received eight years for a fourth count of attempted aggravated murder, six years for a fifth count of attempted aggravated murder and six years for a sixth count of felonious assault, reports NBC News.

Lane wasn't eligible for the death penalty because he was 17 at the time of the shooting.

Why in the world was this guy allowed to wear that in court? Does the judge not have any discretion in this? I doubt this would be allowed in a Florida courtroom. Mouthing off at the victim's family like that would also not be allowed, he would be escorted out of the courtroom by deputies almost immediately when he started this. Unbelievable.

Brett: Remember, its' ohio. My only hope is he's entered into general population to serve his sentences as a "pump pillow" by his fellow inmates. And please, let him wear that T-shirt as I'm sure there's somebody inside who can show him the error of his ways.

Gallows in the middle of town... prisoner dressed in a pink tutu... mouth plugged shut so his last words are never recorded to inspire future degenerated... public execution so dehumanizing that no aspiring nut would want to be in there shoes...

Would anyone think that gun laws would have stopped this asshole?

Doc @ 3/19/2013 11:27 PM

They should change the law, this trash deserved to have a Death Sentence, but he will end up with a Husband named Tyronne or Bubba

Brett, I agree 100%!! he never should have been allowed to wear that or comment like he did. Let's hope Bubba packs it tight!

The name Manson comes to mind when I read this. Millions of dollars to house this little POS. Too bad there isn't an exception to the Death Penalty exemption.

Steve @ 3/20/2013 11:29 AM

Rob is absolutely correct. He may wind up with a husband named Bubba but WE are going to have to feed both he and Bubba! No room and board necessary if you're swinging from a gallows. But we don't want to put defense attorneys out of business now do we?!!!

Steve Melczer @ 3/20/2013 11:53 AM
