Judge doubles prison sentence to 30 years, warns others: Don’t try this

Syracuse, NY -- A Syracuse burglar, who participated in a fatal home invasion, will spend twice as long in prison after reneging on a deal to help bring his fellow criminals to justice.

Tyrone Byrd, then 17, was, at best, attempting to get the best deal he could. At worst, he intentionally was trying to sabotage the murder case against five other co-defendants, a judge said today.

In any case, Byrd’s promised sentence of 15 years in prison was long gone, County Court Judge Thomas J. Miller said.

“In my opinion, you attempted to play everyone,” the judge told him. “Your bluff was called."

Byrd, with three others, had taken plea deals that called for 10 to 15 years in prison and promises to testify against the others.

Northwest Woodsman: I firmly believe that eventually summary execution of these violent offenders will be the only way to stop this behavior. Although most are too stupid athletes foresee the consequences, if they knew that If caught committing a crime or illegally carrying a firearm, they would be executed on the spot, it would eventually serve as a deterrent.

So you don't claim to be Christian.

Just for the record.

You are Jewish in world view.
