He shot a uniformed police officer in the head. He shot at two other cops with the intent to kill them. He robbed at gunpoint a convenience store and a beer store. He invaded a home with a shotgun, shooting its occupant in the leg.Yeah, I'm sure... this time... he'll be rehabilitated.
He has a rap sheet so long for violent crimes in his 32 years it covers two full pages. He has been on the receiving end of break after break by the courts, which put him on probation six times.
The court laughably applied Powell's third lifetime firearms ban. He will not be eligible for parole for seven years.

Reminds me of Robin Williams' bit about unarmed British bobbies: "Stop. Or I'll say 'stop' again...".And don't miss Canadian Cynic, yet again, forging comments under a false "Neo Conservative" blogger id.
LAST WORD: "Feelin' hot, hot, hot!!!"
