N.J. Teen Gets 10 Years for Slaying Plot:
I told you, about Matthew Lovett last July. He was one of the three NJ teens who planned on shooting three of their school “enemies” then killing random people. He was sentenced to ten years today. He was facing fifty years. At his sentencing, Lovett said his excuse was…
“We decided to go home, back to my house. We realized we were in the wrong. We were just stupid,” Lovett said. “It was more fantasy than anything.”
A fantasy? You have got to be kidding me. It’s not a fantasy when you’re armed with rifles, a shotgun, several handguns, swords and 2,000 rounds of ammunition. That is damn near reality. 10 years is hardly long enough to keep this mutant locked up. His accomplices fared much better. Cody Jackson is serving a five-year prison sentence, for carjacking. Christopher Olson is serving four years for a weapons offense. Olson and Jackson’s parents said their sons were “led astray” by the older Lovett. A very common trait in New Jersey., the “not my kid” syndrome. God forbid that your kids should be held responsible for their actions. Personally, I feel they should each get a year for every round of ammunition they were carrying. But that’s just me.
