Stephen Blea, of Denver, is outraged. In today's Denver Post, he says that Darrent Williams' tragic murder should result in congressional action to increase criminal penalties. He wrote:
. . . we should get stronger bills passed in Congress in his name against violence with severe sentences handed out to these gutless gun-carrying criminals. We need much stiffer penalties for the outlaws that have no concern over life.
Interesting. Whoever murdered Darrent Williams is subject to a first degree murder conviction and the death penalty. How much tougher can the penalty get?
