Liberals tend to instinctively side with criminals. That’s why you tend to get headlines like, “Robber gets life in prison — and a $4 package of socks” for stories like this one:
What started as shoplifting and turned into an armed robbery when the suspect revealed a handgun to a loss-prevention officer has resulted in a mandatory sentence of life in prison for a Daytona Beach man, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
A jury deliberated for about an hour April 14 before finding Dean Rockmore, 48, guilty of robbery with a firearm, assistant State Attorney Chris Kelly said. On Friday, Circuit Judge Margaret Hudson found that Rockmore qualified as a prison releasee re-offender and handed down the life sentence, Kelly said.
Rockmore was released from prison Jan. 26, 2009, and committed the robbery about two months later on March 29, according to court documents
This is not a man who is going to spend the rest of his life in prison for stealing a “$4 package of socks.”
