Analysis: In this commentary, a former Los Angeles policeman, William Ferguson (35 years old) was sentenced to an incredible 102 years in jail (home invasion robberies, at least 40, 1999-2001, convicted of 4 firearmes charges that lead up to 82 years in prison (this was the eason why the peoples' constitutional rights were in danger)). The people (District Judge Gary Allen Feess and Ferguson's attorney (Philip Deitch) were practicing their 8th amendment constitutional rights, by stating that Will would be 137 years old by the time he gets out, which meant he would be dead. Also, Ferguson's brother, Joseph (33 years old), was charged of owning drugs and breaking the laws of civil rights. As a consequence, he was sentenced for 8 years in prison. Personally, I think what congress did was totally unfair and absurdly irrational. The oldest living person on record was close to 120 years, but not quite. Plus, it would be difficult for Ferguson to survive in prison conditions for a long period of time. Finally, 102 years could definitely be described as an entire life for a human, so why not say sentenced for life? In conclusion, what congress decided to do was beyond unconstitutional, but what Judge Feess and attorey Philip Deitch said would be constitutional.
A former Los Angeles police officer who participated in home invasion robberies staged to look like police raids was sentenced Monday to 102 years in prison.
