A New York City judge handed down two more life sentences to members of the Brooklyn robbery crew in the fatal shooting of a New York Police Department detective.

Nelson Morales, 28, and Kevin Santos, 32, received 25 years to life Thursday for the death of NYPD Det. Peter Figoski. Crew member Lamont Pride shot and killed Figoski as the robbery crew attempted to flee an apartment early Dec. 12, 2011. Pride received 45 years to life during his sentencing in February.

Mary Anne Figoski, the 22-year detective's mother, called Morales, the crew's ringleader, and Santos "predatory opportunists" that society needs to be protected from, reports the New York Daily News.

So you kill a cop in NYC and get to spend the rest of your life living on the taxpayers dime. Three squares a day, TV, free meds, exercise equipment,etc. What happened to that "Kill a cop, get dead" law? Damn shame these lowlife turds ever saw the inside of a cell, let alone a courtroom. But, thats NY for you. Blues, Stay Safe.

Let's all hope Life really means life in this case. Killing a human over a property crime that is only solved at such a low percentage shows how depraved this 'crew' of felons are/were.
