Sweet, Sweet Justice

You might want to close your mouth before you get to jail (courtesy of The Huffington Post)

It’s always nice when the American justice system functions as it should and some scumbag is finally taken off the streets.

Enter Drew Peterson, the former Chicago area police officer whose fourth wife, Stacy, went missing and has never been found. Everyone suspected that he murdered her, but no one could prove it.

What they could prove, however, was that Peterson murdered his third wife, Kathleen Savio. And last Thursday, a judge sentenced Peterson to 38 years in prison, minus the time he’s already spent in custody.

An appeal is forthcoming, no doubt, but for now it appears justice has been served. A man many describe as a “depraved” and “cold-blooded killer” will likely spend his remaining years behind bars.

American women can breathe easier now, if only for a moment.
