Hang him by his testicles and let him die from a thousand cut. Reminding him the whole time why this being done. If a slick, shyster lawyer, shows up, give him two options. Leave or suffer as his client. No, I am not an LEO, I am just one ticked-off civilian, who is tired of seeing officers needlessly. Put the fear of God back in the perps and judges, who are touchy, feely when sentencing slime-like this moron.
