    I know there were threads on this at the time, but didn't see any point in digging them up.

    Anyway, the two guys who beat Giants fan Bryan Stow nearly to death outside Dodger Stadium on Opening Day 2011 pleaded guilty and were sentenced today. One got eight years, the other four.

    Seems like a light sentence, and at least one of the guys didn't appear to show much remorse:

    Why couldn't the judge add on the death penalty for contempt of court?

    Or at least had doubled the sentence. I still don't understand how an assault with such consequences gets such a light sentence.

    What the judge didn't tell them was they would have 400-pound cellmates undyingly devoted to the Giants.

    Story says both men face federal weapons charges that could add 10 years.

    Go serve four or eight years and see if you still consider it a light sentence.

    For you or I, that would be a nightmare. For these guys, I doubt it's their first prison rodeo, and doubt it'll be their last.

    This is why the public is disgusted with the attorney class.

    Go spend your life brain damaged and permanently disabled and see if you still consider it a light sentence.

    Stow's family also has a civil suit filed.

    No doubt that the assailants have millions in assets.

    The family should go after the Dodgers. They're the ones with the money.

    I believe they have sued McCourt.
