Weinhaus Sentenced to 63 Years

Jeffery Weinhaus, the man who opened fire on the Missouri Highway Patrol officers, will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Franklin County prosecuting attorney Bob Parks said the sentence was handed down Monday morning, about a month after being found guilty of assault on a law enforcement officer and armed criminal action. Parks says Weinhaus was sentenced to 30 years for the assault on law enforcement, 30 years for the armed criminal action, 2 years for felony possession of morphine and 12 months for misdemeanor possession of marijuana, all to be served concurrently in the Missouri Department of Corrections. Weinhaus pulled a gun on a highway trooper back in September of last year at the MFA gas station in St. Clair.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
