Sarcasm. However some judges seem to be harsher on drug related crimes rather that violent offenders.

Sorry, it's still early. The sarcastic hemisphere of my brain isn't firing on all cylinders yet.

My partner was involved in an incident just over a year ago. He attempted a traffic stop. Suspect stopped, partner pulled in behind him and the suspect threw it in reverse and rammed his patrol car. Partner yelled stop partner already dove off to the left side out of the way. Suspect moves forward, then aims for my partner in reverse and tries to run him over. Partner fires off 5-6 rounds while diving out of the way just barely being missed. Suspect flees in his vehicle, my partner can't follow as his cruiser was t7. Suspect ends up being caught with the help of 20+ officers, helicopter and a couple k9's. Now, the sad part is this guy got time served(5 days) and 5 years probation plus community service and he had to write my partner an apology letter for trying to kill him. Talk about pissed off....its aggravating as hell how ridiculous our system is.

Sad that that's how our system works nowadays.

That's funny considering a "dime bag of herb" is less than a speeding ticket here.

Plus 1, considering they will lose the driver license they didn't have in the first place, incident report, evidence report, request for examination report, submitting to evidence... case continued a few times, maybe have trial by judge including BCI evidence tech subpoenaed.

Seize it as found property and mark it for destruction = incident report, and evidence report.

We have a couple judges that sentence people to that on charges that involved resisting or assaulting an officer. One magistrate even makes them apologize to the officer face to face if convicted at trial. What a bunch of touchy-feely bull****.

The average letter reads:

Dear Officer,

I'm sorry that I ran from/fought with/provided false ID to/etc you. I was goinIg through a lot and I was worried about the impact that it would have on my future. I am currently in school/working/working and in school/raising a child/etc and I was afraid of going to jail. I realize now
(that I've been convicted and sentenced, of course that I could have handled the situation better, but again, I was just afraid that I was going to go to jail. I will try harder to cooperate in the future.

I, I, I, I, I, I, I...and one "you", unless it's followed by "were going to arrest me", in which case it can be repeated.

I guess my sarcasm didn't stand out, even tho I pointed out in a later post that I was being sarcastic :banghead:

Hey I've seen one of those in action. Pretty remarkable to be carrying this around and not be noticed:

The judge got a lot of letters from the defendant's family.

Read the rest of the article about the defendant's homeboys shooting at the wounded officer after the initial shooting, and the death threats after......

For over 20 years, Detroit Courts in particular, and Michigan courts to varying degrees in general have considered police work to be an "assumed risk" by police officers. Which is why the courts tend to give light sentences in these cases. Just north of Detroit, I had a suspect try to drown me in a river. The suspect got seven years and was out in five.

I am suprised at the amount of positive comments to the article, as opposed to the usual cop hating garbage most news articles bring.

Tough cop, he was obviously mentally prepared, hope he can return to full duty soon.

I'm sure if he had shot a judge the sentence would have been different.

I hate that CRAP. He tried to murder an identified officer for pocket change and it sounds like he had a backup posse with him! Worthless scum. Innocent?? How'd he get 3 holes in him?? ARG!!!
The officer planted those bullets on him.

Unfortunately the officer didn't shoot back and kill the POS.

He did shoot back, that was how he planted the bullets on the "innocent" subject...

I enjoyed this part:

Matthews says, "I don't know if his gun jammed or if he ran out of bullets, but he stopped shooting. I told him 'You just shot the police.' Then I punched him in his face.

This officer is a hero! Very tough individual that's for sure!

I can't imagine the frustration of being at trial after risking your life for your city and the judge, who you may very well have to protect one day, gives such a light sentence to someone who tried to kill you.
