2 years he has already served, he will get out on good behavior in 1/2 the sentence (6 years) so in 4 years he will be on the street killing again.

NY always lets murderers out in ten years. It isn't really a crime, just a poor decision.

Yes that's one poor decisions he has made. Ok I'm not one to quote the law of another country. But he will have plenty of time to think about his actions. NOT that that's any consolation to the individuals friends and family. 12years locked away is one hell of a long time. Even six years is the same. That's also a long time to be locked away. But it should make him think before he picks up another loaded gun. AS and when he does get released. But one day this individual will be let free. And there will always be someone to remind him of his actions. He will have to live with it for the rest of his life.
