The last I had heard after 18-year-old Jared Cano pleaded no contest to plotting to attack Freedom High School in Tampa his defense attorney said that he was only looking at possibly 1 year in jail. If I was Cano I would fire him since last week Cano was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
On my last post about Cano even I thought a year would have been fine since the kid is a full-blown idiot and would have been lucky if he didn’t trip over his own ineptitude trying to carry out his master plan.
Imagine my surprise last week when I read that he was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Am I saying that he should get a reduced sentence? Not at all. It’s finally nice to see a judge who takes these things seriously without falling into the ‘think of the children’ trap.
Cano had this to say prior to his sentencing…
“I don’t want to be the bad guy. I want to be the good guy. The state ain’t gonna make an example. They’re gonna put me in prison. Let me make an example. I had a bad life. Let me change it around and do something good, not bad. Don’t make me the poster child for something evil. Let me be the poster child for something good. Let me do right. Give me a chance to do something right. To make my family proud. I don’t want all these people to think I’m crazy, trying to kill everybody. I want people to look at me as someone who was wrong and changed… and did something right.”
Too late scarecrow, you had that opportunity before you planned to kill as many people as possible at your school. Now you’ll have to wait for 15 years to change.
