Tattooed inmate gets life sentence plus at least 36 years
I'd have an easier time buying that he wasn't a monster if he
didn't look like one with the ink all over his face. I also don't get
these "Life +" sentances. So how does that work, if they die and come
back they only servce so many more years? And how does that work with
consecutive life sentances? If they die 7 and come back 7 (as an example),
Curtis Allgier, the product of extreme right wing conservative hatred. Not sure
why we should spend taxpayer money on this guy. Make the people who raised him
pay for his incarceration or the hate groups he belongs to.
Sweet ink bro.
Finally we see some humility. His apology seems sincere
This isn't justice, it's a life time of free health care, food and
It sickens me when Allgier says "I apologize from the bottom of my
heart," he said Wednesday during his sentencing hearing. "I didn't
want to hurt anybody. It was an accident. … That guy didn't deserve
that. He didn't deserve it." He wrestled the gun from Mr. Anderson and
shot him TWICE in the head. Execution, pure and simple. And his actions
afterward were the actions of a desperate and evil man. Proud of his race? He is
evil. The marks on his body testify to that fact. He got off easy.
Allgier's attorneys hopefully made a part of the deal that Allgier would
never be able to make a request to go to any medical institution to get medical
care that wasn't provided at the prison facility. It was pre-meditated
murder of Mr. Anderson. Allgier is not sorry for committing the crime and is
only sad that he got caught. With his type of marking, he would have had a hard
time avoiding being caught. He was and is a marked man and prison guards will
know he has killed and murdered one of their own. He just as well have put a
target on himself with his distintinctive markings. This is not
real justice to not have him show his bias and guilt in a court of law. For him
to say he only made his decision to kill in a split second was his last hope at
getting the court to send him to the state hospital. He had a plan and carried
it out when the corrections officer was vulnerable. Allgier hasn't found
his solace in this life.
@JBQSo people should take personal responsibility but should turn
themselves over to gods will? the religious right is so devoid of morals and
values these days I would almost fear this guy worse if he turned himself over
to the far rights brand of religion.
'That guy didn't deserve that,' applies to Algier and his
sentence.In this case the criminal won, and law abiding citizens
lost.If ever there was a case where the death penalty was fully
justified, this is it. And, it should have been a case prosecuted and sentenced
within a matter of months, not five years of truth-dodging and obfuscation by
the admitted killer. And the sentence should have been carried out within
months of conviction.Every morsel of food, medical treatment,
shelter or creature comfort we provide Mr. Algier for the next 50 years is
something he does not deserve, and is being denied someone else.My
sincere condolences go out to the victim's family and friends for their
loss and suffering.
He is trying to make himself to be a hero of sorts because he plead guilty to
this crime in an effort to comfort the family of the victim. The truth is he
plead guilty only after the death penalty was taken off the table.I
don't understand why this plea bargin was allowed. He continues to be a
risk to guards and other inmates. This isn't fair to them. The prosecutors
and the courts should have gone the distance.
Two lives lost - how sad.
AA had it right. In order to provoke change, one has to believe in a higher
power. An individual cannot change oneself. An individual who leads oneself
"has a fool for a guide". The legal system is now run with a socialist
attitude where everyone, including Mr. Allgier, is a victim of society. There is
no sin. There is no God. It is all about psychological evaluation and
interacting with society. One has to start with individual responsibility. One
has to stop blaming others and start with oneself. This starts with putting God
back in the schools to say nothing of the prison system.
Why on Earth can't the judge deny plea bargains when the defendent makes
such asinine comments as "It was an accident" when it obviously
Hearing him speak these words, it was probably the first time I thought there
was actually a human being in there.
Re: "Tattooed inmate gets life sentence . . . ."Or, in other
words, he got nothing, since he was already serving a life sentence.Sad.
Now do you think it might be possible to finally put this guy away so he can be
forgotten and we won't have to see his face looking at us from your pages
This is an example of a broken legal system. A criminal with a history of
violent escapes should not be given a life time of opportunity to continue the
attempts. What this does is encourage other murderers with a life time sentence
to try to escape. What do they have to lose anyway if there is a precedent like
this, if they can get away with defying authority and murder?
Did we vote out the death penalty too?
