It’s getting a little better because they’ve been so blatant about it that it’s drawn the world’s attention, but it’s still rare when cops get charged with the crimes they commit, up to and including murder or attempts to murder others. Even on those rare occasions when their crimes are outrageous and the evidence is so undeniable that they get charged, it’s still almost unheard of for them to get convicted, since the district attorney and judge are generally playing for the same team as them. What’s more, on those minuscule times when the prosecutor doesn’t throw the game and they actually get convicted, they usually end up with a slap on the wrist.

However, all that goes out the window when their victims are other cops. Such was the case with Former Officer Jessie Hernandez Jr., who was convicted three weeks ago of shooting Selma Police Officer Tiffany Kierum in the face (he’s also awaiting trial for shooting her partner, Cpl. Jesus Balderamas, during the same incident). With District Attorney Nicholas LaHood himself prosecuting the case there was little chance that Hernandez would get the typical home field advantage that police normally get when facing trial.

LaHood implored the jury to impose a life sentence, the maximum penalty possible for his charge of aggravated assault of a public servant, and they didn’t disappoint him. After just four hours, the jurors returned a life sentence against Hernandez, who could have gotten as little as five years or even probation in the case that originally stemmed from a domestic violence call in 2013.

Hernandez committed a despicable violent crime, which almost (and only due to luck didn’t) cost another person their life. He certainly deserves every minute he will be serving in prison. However, if that person he very nearly killed had been a mere mortal, there’s little chance the District Attorney would have personally prosecuted the case and a much better chance that the sentence handed down on August 14th would have been much closer to that low end of the scale.

    1. You were probably up all night getting that list of 7 instances.
      That PALES in comparison to the many who have been murdered by the police and have gotten a pass.
      FAIL

      1. Yeah, it took about five minutes, maybe six….
        And its not a question of who’s been shot by the police, it is that Kelly makes the inference that only those charged with harming the police, get the highest penalties.

      2. Yeah, it took about five minutes, maybe six….

        1. It pretty obvious that those harming the police get a much higher penalty then someone whom the police harm…..not to mention all the false arrests/allegations by cops against those they harm as ‘cover’.

        2. So, you can list HALF OF ONE PERCENT in comparison to citizens killed by police…. So, you very clearly prove the police get let off the hook, you’re just too fucking stupid to realize it…. What the mother fucking shit….. Wake the fuck up.

  2. Sounds like he got what was coming to him. He can rot in prison.

    1. Awesome, Three pigs down.

    2. You have no idea how hilariously ironic this post is

      1. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, the same dumb mother fucker can somehow make himself look even stupider. It sure is something else.

    3. But ONLY because he did this to other cops. You’ve missed the opportunity for this to mean anything, since you’ve slandered so many hundreds of other innocents, you mother fucking ingrate piece of fucking shit. Why don’t you go rot with him, you mother fucker.

      1. Wow you really are a pussy-fart. I agree with the article and you still try to slam me. You are a real pathetic fuck. The only thing rotting is between your legs. Grow up puke.

        1. Again, what you say means a grand total of jack and shit, mother fucker. Time and time again your true PIECE OF SHIT colors show. You are NOTHING, bitch!

  3. this is simply simple if a pig shoots another pig and gets a life sentence then that should be “the guide” (i.e. if a pig shoots ANYBODY then a life sentence is the appropriate penalty).
