Justice with a dose of stupidity

A 16 year old (at the time) wannabe thug who shot five classmates on a bus killing one of them was sentenced to 100 years in prison.


The victim's dad, a former Chicago cop, commented that Michael Pace should serve every day of the sentence.


The dad has also become a gun control advocate since Pace went on his shooting spree.

Wait, what?

To give you an idea of what happened, this all went down in Chicago in 2007 when a 15 year old (at the time) boy illegally sold Pace an illegally owned handgun, and Pace illegally took possession of it and set out to illegally kill another gang member, but instead illegally shot up a bus and five people, murdering one (illegally). All of this in a city that has banned handgun ownership, and in a state that has made it illegal to carry a handgun, as well as the whole minor in possession thing.

So rightfully aggrieved dad wants to make handgun ownership more illegal. Awesome. Like throwing a bucket of water on a ship fire.

I don't understand people sometimes.

If you've ever seen small children tease a dog with a stick, you get the idea. The child thinks the game is marvelous because the dog growls and bites the stick. The smarter dog soon figures out the game and goes after the hand holding the stick and tears result.

The Dad's still going after the stick, not the hand that holds it.

That's a well written rundown!
