Snip> A Baltimore judge had harsh words Tuesday for city police officer Gahiji Tshamba, calling his actions "repugnant" and sentencing him to 15 years in prison in the shooting death last year of an unarmed Marine veteran outside a Mount Vernon bar.

Judge Hargadon sentenced the officer to seven years for voluntary manslaughter and eight years for using a handgun in a crime of violence. <Snip

What is not mentioned here is that the officer fired 13 rounds as the Marine lay on the ground with his hands up. 12 rounds struck the victim.

Considering the city, it's a wonder the cop didn't get just 15 months.
