Tiffany - cold but stupid. Nasty amateurs. It could've ended really badly, but thankfully, it didn't.

Premeditated handgun assault. 3 years. Does that mean 18 months and out?

Only 3 years ?! - for people who have shown themselves capable of such an act, if I could force a laugh - it would almost be a joke. Maybe I'm just a bit "old Testament" but I am doubtful about any future abilities at citizenship of someone who ever seriously threatened someone's life with a machete.


What is it about our country/culture or whatever that we produce so many lawless psychopaths ... and at all areas of society.
