Last week we broke the story of UAH shooter Amy Bishop Anderson appealing her murder conviction. You will remember that conviction came after she entered a voluntary guilty plea to avoid the death penalty and agreed to never appeal. While I suppose it shouldn't surprise me, it turns out her word is about as good as her character. Now, she is once again putting the families of her victims through hell and costing tax payers hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The only possible positive out of her appeal is that if she does get her conviction tossed on a technicality, double jeopardy does not apply, and she can be tried again. If that happens, I sincerely hope our district attorney doesn't do another deal with her. Let her face her victims' families in court. Let her face the fullest consequences of her actions allowed under the law. I say try her, convict her, and be rid of her.
