Editorial: Some comfort

That the killer of Police Officer Gamali Benjamin would not end up with a life sentence did not come as a surprise to many, but the only reasonable alternative seemed to be the maximum temporary prison sentence of 30 years. That the court went ten years below that in its decision feels like a slap in the face of law enforcement, and understandably so.

In our opinion, someone who fires more than ten bullets at police officers is hell bent on putting their lights out, yet the court ruled that the shooter had no intention to kill either one of the officers.
