VIDEO: Chicago Cop Killer Gets Life Plus 115 Years

Wearing a blue and white dress, the widow of slain Chicago police Officer Thor Soderberg walked to the front of a packed Cook County courtroom Wednesday and poured out some of the pain from her vast loss.

"I lost everything," Jennifer Loudon said, at times dabbing the tears from her eyes as she spoke of the couple's plans to become foster parents, buy a house and live abroad. "I had no idea it was possible to lose so much in a single lifetime, much less in a single moment."

Sitting nearby at the defense table, Bryant Brewer, convicted last month of Soderberg's slaying, mocked Loudon. He put his head down and rubbed his eyes with his fists as Loudon wept on the witness stand. Then he lifted his head and laughed.

Moments later, Judge Timothy Joyce cited Brewer's "malignant heart" as he sentenced him to life plus 115 years in prison for "executing" Soderberg with his own service weapon and then shooting at three other officers and a civilian in 2010, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Thank you past Governor (Lib pos.) of Il. for ending the Death Penalty there. Im glad I live and work in AZ where someone like this would be going to death row. See if he mocks the victims wife then when he is going to die and go straight to hell.

LIFE He needs to be hanged drawn and quartered. He is an animal that needs to be put down. Start putting some of these scumbags down and watch your LE kill rate go down. Stay safe brothers and sisters.
