Students, friends, and families of the Chardon High School family east of Cleveland, Ohio, were forced to relive the horror that unfolded last year when T.J. Lane decided to open fire on his classmates killing three of them and wonding three others.
Lane was 17 at the time, but he was proven competent to stand trial. He is now 18, and was sentenced to three life terms with no chance of parole for aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder, and felonious assault, according to the Huffington Post. Last February, he opened fire, killing Daniel Parmertor and Demetrius Hewlin, both 16, and Russell King Jr., 17. But in a shocking display, Lane said to the families
“The hand that pulls the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory,”
He then gave them the middle finger and also told them:
“F**k all of you.”
But before opening his mouth, he set a foreboding tone as he entered the courtroom with “KILLER” etched on the front of his white t-shirt in black marker. The judge gave the most appropriate sentence that he could offer seeing as he was too young to be given the death penalty.
Lane is a real pet project for psychiatrists everywhere. His lack of remorse at this young age would keep them taking notes for some time to come. Check out the footage from the courtroom. Disgusting.
