I can't believe that a judge would cut off some years of a prison sentence. To shoot anyone, especially an officer of the law, should be a lot more years than he is getting.
How has the officer's wife, a widow now, have the right to tell the judge what to do?
It sounds fishy to me.

In April we have keep America Beautiful Month. I am mad because people throw cigarettes, bottles, beer and plastic. They all are in the water, ditches, swamps. So we should plant flowers, people clean it, and make it a law.
Hi my name is Bejain. People are polluting and some other people don't like it, like me. People are polluting in parks, lakes, on the ground too. The question is what are we going to do about it?
It is keep america beautiful moth. I saw lots of trash around town. I saw lots of pop cans in a drainage pipe. I saw some on the ditch. I saw a chip bag by the ditch. I think there should be a rule called there should be no littering in america or will be punished by the law. If some one does you should get their plate number.
April is keep American Beautiful month. If you see garbage on the ground pick it up. When I see garbage on the ground or someone throwing garbage out a window I get made because I want to keep America clean. What makes me mad is if people see garbage sometimes they don't even bother to pick it up. If the president puts a stronger law and a worse punishment then I think people will stop littering.
April is Keep American Beautiful month. I don't think Keep America Beautiful month is the only time that we should care about America. I think we should make signs that say, "Please keep your park clean."
This month is Keep America Beautiful Month. Almost everybody is littering. It is making streets, lakes, ponds, and all kinds of things dirty. Try to help make it clean again. It makes me upset because it's polluting the earth. I think we should make a better law that's going to be more worse than the first law so they stop polluting the earth. If you were just driving down the road and you saw someone litter, get their license plate and send it in to the police. I like riding my bike down our dirt road and I see a lot of trash and all kinds of things and I don't like it.
This is Keep America Beautiful Month. I have seen old carpet on the street and then it was on the grass. At my school I saw cigarette butts. I feel bad because it is a law and people still throw garbage.
