Yesterday was Shane McGee’s sentencing. I have been silent (on this blog) on my opinions about my husband’s killer, but my conscience and soul have been grappling with the issue since the moment I learned Patrick was hit.
I have a lot I want to write about on this issue, because I feel it’s important not only for me to process it all personally–I also want our community that has lost Patrick Sawyer to process through this loss with me.
There are several articles about the sentencing in the media. The online versions have several comments about the sentencing. Many people are understandably angry at the seeming light sentence Shane received from Judge Chamblee.
Here are links to the articles, videos, and comments:
