He went to buy drugs from the lady he killed, meaning that they were dealers
too. It's sad that a wife and mother was killed.I'm not
defending this kid at all. He lived in a house down the street from me with
some friends. I saw the cops bringing out bagged evidence from that house when
I drove by it on my way home on the day of the crime. Frankly, I was not happy
at all to see that police activity that day. I asked the landlord, whom I know
what was up. He told me and again I was not happy. This didn't happen at
his parents home either.The fact that he's going away for a
long time will give him plenty of time to reflect on what he did.
I question the character and integrity of people both buying or selling
marijuana in the State of Utah. I would also suspect that it would expose any
young children living in the house to unnecessary risks and dangers from buyers.
Really are we still asking these questions? The poor family of the victim would
have agreed to the plea. They would have made an informed decision. Downside is
the public don't get the full story coming out. next hurdle is the victims
partner needs to prove his shady drug dealings and criminal assets he housed in
his family home is 'legal'. such a tragedy
"Black will be ordered to serve at least 25 years and potentially life in
prison..."**Potentially**???I would have insisted on
the death penalty, but who could possibly deserve an absolutely guaranteed life
sentence in prison more than this guy??
No matter how you feel about the death penalty, you cannot argue that it's
a very effective bargaining tool. Why would any perp ever take a long prison
sentence without the dealth penalty looming in the background?
What a horrible person. And his girlfriend only gets a Class A?
