74 Life Sentences

I dont understand. Why not just one life sentence, your in prison til you die, period. What are these people? cats?

"Mother of god...These people are absolutely dangerous, we better give them more than one life sentence, in case they reincarnate"


Disclaimer: Im not defending this guy or expressing he shouldnt get what he deserves, this guy is a sick ****, I just read the article and found the idea of more than one life sentence ridiculous.

If it was someone who killed 74 people its different because its like justice for each victim.

It's incase he appeals and get's one conviction reversed. He'll still be there for 73 more life sentences.

I would think he'd kind of smell by then though.

This is one situation where our justice system shines. Each count carries a maximum penalty. If found guilty on multiple counts, multiple sentences can be handed out. In the event that an appeal is successful to reverse one sentence, there's still plenty of time left to serve. Multiple sentences also reduce the possibility of parole. So, VERY generally, the worst criminals have the least chance of getting out early, if at all.

Right. It sounds silly, but has a very sound practical purpose

Must be a state without the death penalty. Like mine.

Yeah, in my state and Texas below us we simply kill you if you kill other people and I am alright with that.

No, no, no. It's so when he gets reincarnated, he'll have a life in prison for the next 73 lives.

Duh!

Not at all. Each conviction carries its own sentence, whatever that sentence is. You don't cobble all the convictions up and say "well, altogether, it's worth X years" or "well, altogether, it's worth a life sentence." That's flea market sentencing. Our justice system works a la carte, and I like it that way.
