50 years for Anne Arundel murder

A judge told a Glen Burnie man that “society has no place for an individual like him” before sentencing him to 50 years in prison for fatally shooting a man outside a bar.

Circuit Court Judge Paul Hackner sentenced 30-year-old Ricco Clifton Gough on Wednesday.

Gough was convicted in May of second-degree murder and weapons violations in the January 2009 shooting of 37-year-old Nathaniel Benjamin Wallace outside Dietrich's Tavern in Glen Burnie.

The shooting stemmed from a fight inside the crowded bar. Wallace, a married father and stepfather of six children, was shot once in the chest.

It's always a good day when a violent subhuman is removed from society. I hope he has a grand old time in an American gulag.

The world is simply a better place when some people are removed from society. That seems to be the case here.

Hope he has to serve the whole time-that will make him 80 when he gets out.
