Clearly there is almost no punishment for committing a serious felony in Indianapolis.
Shamus Patton, the infamous ‘Black Expo Shooter’, was sentenced to 8 years for shooting 9 people and yet was released just 2 years later. The Prosecutor had the option of adding another 20 years by linking him with gang related activity. But no. Once out, he’s found hanging with known gang members in a stolen car with a couple of handguns in it — and no carry permits in the bunch.
Now it has come out that the person suspected of killing a 16-year old the other day is a felon who served just 1 MONTH (!!!) of a 1 year, 11 month and 30 day sentence. Five months later, he’s gunning down a kid on the Fourth of July.

Evidently the message is: We aren’t going to punish you for committing a crime in Indianapolis.
