Life for flinging poo

Not quite sure how I feel about this one...

Quote
NEW BOSTON, Texas–A Bowie County jury handed down a life sentence Thursday for a Texas prison inmate who soaked a female correctional officer with liquified human waste last year at the Barry Telford Unit in New Boston.

Alonzo Gilbert Guerrero Jr., 25, was serving a four-year term for arson when he covered Correctional Officer Rebecca Smith’s hair, face and clothing with his waste July 20, 2017. The jury convicted Guerrero on Wednesday after less than 10 minutes of deliberations. It took them a little more than two hours to settle on a life sentence Thursday.

He is lucky.  In some states they hand out 300 year sentences ;-(

That's one sick puppy.  Life?  That may be over the top, although I don't really care if he gets life.  I'm just curious; Has anyone evaluated this guy?

Man goes from a 4 year sentence to life? He does need to be examined! Not only does he serve a life sentence, but the guards will be on him like stink on a skunk. He'll have a very hard life, but he made his own bed and now must lie in it.

A little over the top, imo.  And clearly, this guy needs some sort of psychiatric help.  Simply extending his stay does little to address the root problem here.

Has anyone looked into his complaints?  The corrections officer said that he became upset at having to wait a while to be led to the bathroom, but it's possible that "a while" for inmates is significantly longer than what one might reasonably expect.  In that case, urinating on the floor might be more understandable.  As does his apparent desire to retaliate against guards for perceived wrongdoing.

Of course, he could just be a psycho whose actions are unpredictable, but I rather doubt the prison system is utterly blameless.

It was a scene like this some years ago, in our county jail, because of over-crowding.  People were handcuffed to the rail in an open stairwell.

He first commits arson, then flings shit at people. Yeah, he's someone you want around.

If he doesn't qualify for being sheltered in a secure facility like a mental institution, jail may be the only way to remove him from society.  Jail may be a nightmare for him, especially now, but for the safety of others, he must not be free to roam.  I don't see a better alternative.  I can imagine one in a different world, but I don't see it in this one.

if they already gave him life, what do they do the next time he “offends” a guard? Now they gotta live with him or have him transfered to another prison.

So true, but the pharmiceutical companies make a lot of money off of mental health. I dont think we can have an honest conversation

How can you be honest, or have a conversation, if you are doped up?

There are people who simply cannot live in society.  As a moderately sane society, we do not kill such people outright.  But also, there is the possibility that they are totally innocent on the crimes they are committed for conviction of and are justifiably so angry at the injustice they would do things like throwing feces at guards, or they might be insane. 

If I was imprisoned for life for something I didn't do, I might act violently in utter anger and frustration whenever the opportunity arose.  And if I was insane, would I truly know what I was doing?

That action definitely qualifies as assault on an officer of the law, and the penalties are usually a little stiffer for that, especially considering the potential exposure to disease involved.  Also, I see domestic assault on his record and I have absolutely no sympathy for people who beat their SOs and/or children.

Maybe by the time he's eligible for parole, he'll have gotten his shit together.


...sorry, I couldn't resist that.
