Seven years for the slaying of a police officer is hardly fittin for the crime. When will people wake up and realize that if a perp. shoots down a police officer, in uniform, and doing his job, they wil not hesitate to shoot and kill any ordinary citizen.
God Bless You Deputy Alexander and your family.
