Suspected gang member gets life for murder

By Washington Post editors

A suspected gang member has been sentenced to life in prison plus 20 years for the 2008 murder of a man.

ABC 7 is reporting that José Mauricio Cruz-Méndez, 23, of Takoma Park, was convicted Friday of murdering 28-year-old Jairon Jeremias Osorio.

Prosecutors said Cruz-Méndez shot Osorio in the head and back while he was watching his car. A Prince George's County Police heard the shots, saw Cruz-Méndez running from the area and gave chase.

Yeah! It's about time we get these thugs off the street...I think such thugs should be required to donate organs to law abiding citizens!
