Are you kidding me? This guy should definitely get life? 46 people have hep c
so far, with probably many more diagnoses to come. This will be the cause of
death of many innocent people. Not to mention, getting Hep C would be very
I doubt the disease will cause the death of many people. There are many
effective treatments now. Treating it shortly after infection is most
effective. I was infected with the virus in 1978 when I got a number of blood
transfusions. It took quite a while to find out and so I have cirrhosis of the
liver. For me the treatment was horrible, worse than the dens-dose chemotherapy
I received for breast cancer. However, it's been 6 months since I finished
the treatment and tomorrow I will hear if I am cured of the disease. What the
guy did was reprehensible, however, and he should be punished severely.
This is bioterrorism. He should be punished with the maximum penalty.
His defense lawyers are also reprehensible... as well as pathetic... for saying
he should get a lighter sentence due to alcohol and drugs clouding his
judgement. It's very much seems his defense team also lacks sane judgement
for using such an argument in his defense. Based on their analysis,
we should give drunk drivers who kill people lighter sentences since alcohol
clouded their judgement. And we should have pity on drug dealers since
drugs clouded their judgement, as well. Totally a pathetic argument. He
should fire his lawyers for obvious incompetence. His victims
didn't have any choices regarding his crimes. But he certainly did
regarding his choices to use (abuse) drugs and alcohol. No one forced him to
become a user. Because he made bad CHOICES is NOT a valid reason for getting a
lighter sentence. In fact, it should be quite the contrary.
Contrary to Tators’ opinion, his defense lawyers are neither
“reprehensible” nor “pathetic.” They had a job to do.
Their belief in his guilt or innocence had nothing to do with the requirements
of their job. It’s the prosecutor’s job to prosecute not the defense
attorneys. “Reprehensible” and “pathetic” are terms that
belong to the defendant. Try not to get “kun-foozed.”
