616 Years PLUS Nine Life Sentences

Long Beach, CA

Daniel Sanchez, 29, was convicted in February of 58 felony counts of rape, burglary and whatever else they could squeeze in there for brutalizing and raping three girls and five women in Paramount, Long Beach, Compton, Lynwood, Bell and Bell Gardens.

Busy guy. Called him "The Long Beach Freeway Rapist".  Not as exciting as the Night Stalker, but you work with what you got.

So Sparky here gets 616 years in prison AND an additional 9 life sentences. Let's see 70 year lifespan, a 9, a 6, carry the 5...

Mr. Sanchez gets out of the can in 3255.  By that time we'll have flying cars, the robot revolution will have come and gone, and Mr. Sanchez will be sitting in his cell.

Okay, yeah, he'll be dead but they can, like, encase him in Lucite, right? Dislay his moldering bones in the entry hall along with all the other guys who've kicked in prison?  Better yet, embed the block with nice, museum lighting into a wall in each cell and a little sign that says, "THIS WILL BE YOU".

Bet ya a ten spot that cuts recidivism in half overnight.

Oh how I wish we would do that... encase guys like him in some translucent plasticine material so posterity can gawk...

Yeah, I know, I'm nuts...
