Oh Jeff Cooper… why can’t you have influenced EVERYONE in your short time on this earth?
What a shame that a young girl is dead all because of poor gun handling. To top it off, her boyfriend who killed her only gets 3 years and 4 months in jail? WTF? I am not entirely familiar with the minimum prison term for manslaughter in the United States, but I hope it is a lot more severe than that.
Thank got at least he got what he did. There is a video on the page I linked where it says that a “range of sentencing options are being considered including a home detention.” Wow…. so this guy kills someone and there was actually consideration in sentencing him to stay in his comfortable home rather than jail?
He put her in his car and took her to a medical centre but refused to give a statement to police for three days.
That’s pretty shady too, but maybe he was advised on that by a lawyer.
