New Jersey Cop Shooter Gets 85 Years

I would have rather seen this toad receive a life sentence, but 85 years is a good start.

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) - March 13, 2008 -- A man convicted of shooting two Egg Harbor Township police officers and firing at a third has been sentenced to 85 years in state prison.

Twenty-nine-year-old Christopher Blank of Egg Harbor was told Thursday that he must serve 85 percent of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole.

Blank was found guilty in January on 13 counts, including three counts of attempted murder.

The shooting took place after a traffic stop on the Black Horse Pike on July 13, 2006. (H/T - 6ABC)

The good news is that Blank will probably die in prison. If he serves 85 percent of the 85 years, that means he'll be, um, 128 when he's available for parole. Wait, did I forget to carry the one . . . ? Oh, never mind. You get my point.
