If only he would be put down quickly after being convicted. Killing two cops should enact an automatic and immediate death penalty upon conviction.

Fant's actions violated state statute regarding evidence and police procedures. Bridges said he removed the death penalty to maintain integrity of the case, which he called a "moving target."
Jury selection continues in accused cop killer trial - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC-
The above is from the above link regarding the two officers who were murdered in 2007. I understand why the judge did it, but I do not like it. It is such an injustice to these men in blue who died to keep Charlotte safe.

I know officers (not CMPD) who attended this funeral and they are from surrounding agencies. They were physically upset as the whole area was. I cried as I watched on TV and the news coverage. I have a lump in my throat just typing this right now.
