170 years punishment for man that shot into ambulance.

A man just convicted of shooting into an ambulance as the ambulance was attempting to transport a stabbing victim to the hospital has been sentenced to a 170 year sentence. The man also shot at the vehicle following the ambulance. The vehicle following the ambulance were family members of the stabbing victim.

I hope that this sentence, while certain to be appealed, sends a clear message about attempting to injure EMS personnel. I have heard too often of lenient judges handing out light sentences when EMS and other first responders are assaulted and harmed. We are out in the streets everyday treating all that require our assistance equally and should be protected by the law accordingly.
