I'm usually against the death penalty. Not because I think it's wrong but because I think government is too incompetent to wield such a power. But in this case, I have no problem at all with it.
Jury Sentences Cop-Killer Richard Poplawski To Death
Murdering three police officers gets you a Go Straight to Hell card in my book. And the arguments in his defense?
On Tuesday, the jury heard testimony from witnesses called by the defense in an effort to save Poplawski's life.
His great-aunt testified about how Poplawski's parents divorced when he was young and how he was largely influenced by his alcoholic and abusive grandfather who died last month.
Testimony also detailed problems with Margaret Poplawski, Richard Poplawski's mother, who was described as an alchoholic who tried to commit suicide on at least one occasion.
Sorry, douchebag. A lot of people are handed a shit sandwich in life. Most of them manage to get by without going on a rampage. There's no excuse for what you did.
