Here is the first paragraph of the article about John Odgren’s sentencing…
Clutching a jacket like a security blanket and pressing his forehead against a table, special needs student John Odgren was sentenced today to mandatory life imprisonment without parole for killing fellow student James F.Alenson inside Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School on Jan. 19, 2007.
Here’s how I would have written it…
Clutching a jacket like a little bitch and pressing his forehead against the table like a moron homicidal maniac John Odgren was sentenced to life without parole for the brutal stabbing murder of random victim James F.Alenson inside Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School on Jan. 19, 2007.
And that’s why I’m not a journalist.
Odgren’s attorney, Jonathan Shapiro, called the sentence barbaric and uncivilized. As opposed to the stabbing of James Alenson through the heart which must have been gentle and polite.
Shapiro bitched about a minor, at the time of the crime, being sentenced to LWOP as being unconstitutional. Good luck with that and let me know how it turns out.
He’s also going to try the “teens do not have fully developed minds and aren’t responsible for their actions” bullshit as well.
If by the age of 16 if you don’t know that death is permanent and killing is wrong then your parents failed you and they should be in jail as well.
