    There was a time when he wouldn't have lasted 10 minutes on the outside.

    It's all good. He'll be swinging from a rafter before Christmas like that old man in Shawshank.

    Let's see....Wallace was no prize, but let's do the math: As it turns out, Bremer served 66% of his life in prison while Wallace spent 100% of the rest of his life from the day he was shot until the day he died in a wheelchair.

    Yeah, that seem fair. Yeah. Right.

    Wallace died of septic shock from a bacterial infection in Jackson Hospital in Montgomery, Alabama on September 13, 1998. He had suffered from Parkinson's disease and respiratory problems in addition to complications due to his spinal injury.

    And he died partially because of his injuries from the shooting...

    Fair indeed...

    Bremer...James Lee Ray....Lee Harvey Oswald....Sirhan Sirhan...

    All were described as loners at the time they were caught and have become the poster boys/role models for so many of the idiots who have committed crimes like this ever since.

    Aw, screw it. Let's do the math again.

    Bremer served 66% of his life in prison.

    Wallace spent 26 of his SEVENTY-NINE YEARS in a wheelchair, which translates to 38.2%.

    The way you try to spin those numbers leads some, absent a blue font, to draw some hasty conclusions.
