Tough on crime

Regarding Torres’ sentencing, we finally have a judge that has some guts. With Torres’ track record with the law, and yes, there is still such a thing in this country, it makes him unfit to live among civilized people. Now, if only district attorneys everywhere would work toward a fitting punishment for the crime rather than working deals to make their jobs easier, we might have a chance at a better society. In this case, a woman’s life was taken from her due to Torres’ disrespect toward the law.
