Did Bryan Stow's attackers receive appropriate punishment?

Did Bryan Stow's attackers receive appropriate punishment?

I know that Stow is still alive and we usually don't throw the book at people over fighting, but this wasn't a fight. It was brutal, vicious and unprovoked attack in a parking lot that left Stow with permanent brain damage.

In my opinion both of these turds should have been thrown into solitary confinement for the next 20 years.

The light sentences they accepted today save taxpayer money, but also send a message that you can get away with brutally beating some people to the point where they can no longer live a normal life.

I say no -- it's not a fair punishment.
Maybe include what their sentences were

Eight years for one of them -- and two for another -- with credit for time served. One of them is going to walk out of jail today a free man. The other still has to put in six years.
Yeah, definitely crazy how seemingly lenient some sentences are for certain things.

Wow
no but some is better than none
fair? yes and no.. i'm sure they've learned their lesson by now.. but it doesn't take away the fact that stow's life will never be the same
Ideally I'd like to see the guy that threw the kicks to get 10 more years than he got for attempted murder. I think kicking a guy when he is down/unconscious is attempted murder.

You are no longer fighting "to fight." You are inflicting harm on a defenseless person and it seems like those types of kicks very often result in serious/life threatening injuries.

you get worse sentences for an ounce of weed.
No, it's not. The discussion of whether or not the system as a whole is fair is a separate issue.

I know in VA they charge people with attempted murder who kickor punch someone on the ground.
Hell no

I approve of that
To see one of them with a frequent smirk on his face while the judge is talking just makes me sick. Both deserve much worse.

This pissed me off. Those f**kers basically got away with attempted murder.
