This morning’s Boston Herald has the tale of a guy who got fed up with his wife and didn’t want to go to the hassle of a divorce, so we figured he’d cut to the chase and have her killed.
Now, setting aside the idiocy of hiring someone to commit murder (really, how many times has this happened when the hit-man-to-be has NOT been an undercover cop?), let’s look at things:
This guy has already been arrested, tried, and convicted of soliciting murder. He’s up to the sentencing stage of his trial, and his plea for clemency is “she deserved it.”
And he’s trying this defense in MASSACHUSETTS, where a cop who admits to nearly-nightly rapes of his adopted seven-year-old daughter gets off (pardon the expression) with “time served” and won’t even have to register as a sex offender.
Mr. Stonier, get used to the view from inside a cell. I get the feeling you’re going to see that for a long, long time.
