Attention Philadelphia Judges

By Wyatt Earp | September 15, 2010

When searching for appropriate prison sentences, look to Arizona.

A man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison for the non-fatal stabbing of a Glendale police officer last year.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 34-year-old Ramiro Garibay was sentenced Tuesday. He was convicted in July of aggravated assault and theft of means of transportation. Authorities say Garibay failed to heed a police officer’s call to stop on Aug. 12, 2009. The officer ran after Garibay, who then punched him in the chest and stabbed him several times before fleeing the scene.

In Philadelphia, this man wouldn’t get 27 years for a fatal stabbing of a police officer. I wish I were exaggerating, but it’s the God’s honest truth. Thankfully, Arizona and Texas picks up our slack. (H/TCode Monkey)

    Wyatt, I keep telling you, come to Texas. Wide open spaces, and our judges are (unfairly) called, “Hanging Judge ….” A bit warm in the summer here, but we don’t shovel as much snow as “youse guys.”

    Now THAT’S the way to prosecute someone. Only the death penalty would have been better for him.

    Do this in Vegas and there would be a coroner’s inquest on the bad guy.

    Wyatt it is the WEST…………

    In Chicago, this guy would have got maybe 10 years at Stateville and been parolled in 18 months because of overcrowding.

    Here’s a thought. Every time a judge lets a bad guy out prematurely, and the guy commits a crime, the judge has to serve the time, too.

    Robert B. – But the snakes. The snakes!

    Randal – It’s hard core. 27 years. I think I had my first real orgasm.

    LDIV – Yeah, the best place in the country for a police officer.

    Ferrell – And good behavior.

    Bob – Never happen, but that’s a great idea.
