An inmate has been sentenced to 22 years in state prison for cutting the throat of a Pinal County detention officer and kicking a Department of Corrections officer, reports KPHO.

A Pinal County Superior Court judge ordered Christopher Durazo to serve 17 years for injuring the detention officer and five years for beating up the corrections officer.

Both officers have since recovered from their injuries.

Thank God daily that I moved from Illinois to live in Arizona, where Justice seems to be done and people can live with one another and not be subject to this Race hatred to the extent that many other cities and states in our nation suffer. We do have our own anti police/anti White Hispanic race mongers but they are far and few in the minority among Az Hispanics. We still have a sense of Justice here and what is right and wrong. Please note that one of the main reasons this is the case is that there is little influence here by Democratic Liberal Pols, we are a solid red state (other then Tucson) and that shows in how Justice is dealt out to thugs and criminals. We have a Death penalty and some remnants of W\"western Justice" as does Tx and a few remaining States. Its not perfect but its a hell of a lot better then back east in Dem run cities and states, just look at the stats and the quality of life there compared to here.

Just one thing your honor: you should have put in no possibility of parole for this piece of trash.

Really a cheap sentence for attempted murder. Obviously Arizona does not back up their correctional Officers.

In California, he'd be released for good behavior by Gov Moonbeam
