Crips gang thug gets 20 years in vicious stab slay of bus driver Edwin Thomas

Recommended Posts

A fare-beating gang member with a long rap sheet received 20 years to life on Tuesday for the brutal slaying of a beloved MTA bus driver.

 

Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Gustin Reichbach handed down the sentence to killer Horace Moore as dozens of victim Edwin Thomas' grief-stricken family and fellow union members waved MetroCards.

 

Before the sentencing, Thomas' daughter, Edley, told the court that Moore, 22, violently and callously ended the life of her father on Dec. 1, 2008.

 

"He was smiling, cordial, laughing, but you took his life cold-blooded," Edley, 18, said through tears.

With good behavior he can be out in 10 years, I don't see how a guy like this will ever change when he gets out of prison.

 

I thought he had to do at least 18 before he had a shot at getting out.

Instead, Reichbach said he didn't want to see Moore "die behind bars" and that there was "hope" for the young thug's redemption.

Well isn't that lovely.

This is a time when I wish we still had the death penalty. I don't want to pay taxes to keep this sorry motherf**ker in jail. Maybe someone can do to him what he did to that bus driver while in jail, he totally deserves it. I know it won't bring the bus driver back but jail is too kind for an a**hole like that crip member.

I have. I understand your sentiments but how does it make things better if another person has to die despite their wrongdoings? If it were up to me, I'd send them out the country and let them be someone else's problem. Just my thoughts.

An eye for an eye...This guy is a lost cause, lets say after his prison term He is reformed and really wont be a danger to society again. Whats this guy going to be anyway? A gas station attendant? A janitor? whats the point? He killed someone for no reason. His life wasnt in danger.. Thats it man, off with his head. One less person in society wasting space and contributing nothing.. This bus driver was in the same boat as the rest of us, working a job to support his family and doing what a man is supposed to do, dealing with peoples BS day in and day out and for what? To get stabbed and killed by some thug with complete disregard for human life...

This is a HUGE part of the problem.Bleeding heart judges who should never have any business sitting in a courtroom.The judge now becomes as much a a POS as the felon he sentenced.

 

When this POS gets out of prison,he should go and live with the Judge and his family.

 

The appropiate sentence for this thug?? Feet first very slowly into a woodchipper.

You might be right, I thought it applied to all sentences, but it's a safe bet this guy won't be doing 20 years and some parole board is going to let him out early.

"I didn't mean nothing to happen that day. If you could forgive me, please do."

 

 

SMH, If he really didn't mean anything to happen he could have got off the bus. But if I remember this article correctly when the stabbing first happened, the driver let him on the bus anyway. He got angry just because he could not get a transfer...for not even paying the fare to begin with!

Who's to say he will even get out?? He may very well die in there. He may end up doing the maximin. 20 is just the minimum.

 

@ Andrew: The Judge gave him the sentence under the guidelines for his case. Would you have rather he went above the law, then risk the guy getting out on appeal?

Should've just killed him.

 

As a taxpayer, I don't feel like paying for his three square meals.

20 years is basically the rest of his life, and as for killing people who kill, that kind of mentality is why things are so bad in the first place.

 

If you messed up, would you want to be put to death? Think about it.

If you messed up

 

Messed up? You call this savage murder of a B/O "messing up"? Oh no, he didn't kill a bus driver in cold blood over a transfer, he messed up.

 

...and to think that you have the gall to say that others are responsible for the current state of society.

Someone who murders a civil servant in cold blood for no reason has sacrificed the right to make that decision for themselves.

 

Mr. Thomas didn't get the same "choice" over his life that you want to give this gangbanging murderer.

I seriously hope some of you don't have any intention of doing any voting on election day because you seriously don't have any reading comprehension. If you don't comprehend what goes on in the government with how the government and the laws work, what makes you think you should vote to decide which people to put in to write and enforce these laws? I bet some of you can't even answer what exactly jay walking is. Here's a hint, it's not a segment on The Tonight Show where host Jay Leno exposes people's lack of education and awareness of their environment.

 

 

 

First of all, he got 20 years to life. If you guys had actually read the article you would know this, and know that the judge went easy on him by not sentencing him to 25 to life, which he could have. Being a bleeding heart fool, he gave him the lesser sentence, which he should not have since Edwin Thomas is never coming back. The reason he did not receive life is because it was not premeditated murder, meaning he hadn't planned previously to murder Edwin Thomas. What 20 to life, and 25 to life murder sentences mean is that, in a 20 to life, the inmate has to serve the minimum 20 years before he is eligible for parole. After 20 years, he then is eligible for parole. He has to serve 20 years in prison minimum. After 20 years he goes up to a parole board of three judges and explains why he is no longer an animal and why he should be released. If the judges say no soup for you, he goes back to prison until the next time he is elible for parole, every two years. This continues until either he is paroled, or he dies in prison. If he gets paroled, he has to answer to a parole officer. If he gets in trouble again, he goes back to prison. For 25 to life, it's simply 5 more years of mandatory jail time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

If he had a fixed 20 year term he could get out before 20 years (six sevenths of his sentence, or for you bad mathematicians, about 17.2 years) if he behaved himself and did things to make himself a better person, such as getting a diploma, helping out in the prison, etc. This however is not a fixed term, this is a 20 years to life term.

 

 

 

 

If they aren't going to have the death penalty for murder what they should have for murder is life until terminally ill in prison or too old to do damage. If someone goes to prison for life, release them once they are declared terminally ill by a 3 doctor panel, so that no money is wasted giving them medical care, and let them be a burden on their family, instead of the state. That's where a lot of money is wasted in prison, taking care of trash that doesn't deserve it. If they don't get sick, then release them at the age of 80 or 85 years, if they make it to that age. 85 year olds tend to cause very few problems. Also stop letting these animals lift weights in prison. I've never understood that. Make a dangerous killer stronger so he is more likely able to over power someone and hurt them. That really makes a lot of sense.

 

 

 

 

Bring back the death penalty for murder, and give just one appeal to the supreme court. If they give the death sentence a go, then that's it, the show is over bye bye shitface and save a ton of money.

 

 

 

Now, commence the whining of how I am an ahole for pointing out your lack of reading comprehension.

 

 

 

This is why I think everyone who wants to vote should be tested to know what they are actually voting for, and we would not have had the last 10 years of bushbama economics, and these bleeding heart buffoon liberals, and closeted anti gay religious idiot conservatives killing this country. America has fallen, and it can't get up. This is why I say that you should be ashamed for not being better educated, but that makes me an ahole, and hurts your feelings.
