remember crazy guy shot the cyclist?

http://www.thesunnews.com/news/local/story/1176408.html

Backstory: firefighter (not on the job) shoots at dad of a family out riding bicycles. The firefighter thought that the dad was endangering the son's life by his route choice. Firefighter shot at dad as dad was walking away; bullet hit helmet but did not hit dad's head.

Ex-firefighter has pled guilty to assault with a deadly weapon and is now Doing Time.

So the next time you're thinking, There Ain't No Justice, well, just this once, maybe there was a little.

ETA:

Slightly better coverage. 120 days. Grand jury wouldn't indict on attempted murder because it was impulsive.

That's much better coverage. Guy was out in 2 days on $200K bond, so maybe there isn't even a little justice. Here's hoping he stays unemployed a long, long time -- he was fired about 2 weeks after the incident.
