He Was Executed Because His Car Was Too Loud

I'm going to miss civilization. 58 years for man who murdered driver because the victim’s van was too noisy; ‘This s*** is funny as hell’

Sitting in his Irving Park home last year, 20-year-old Gaven Leon became annoyed by the noise of a van stopped for a nearby red light. So, prosecutors say, Leon fired a shot from his apartment window at the van’s driver, killing him.

You can click thru for the details, and how taking a human life didn't effect him in the least. Well, not until the cops showed up, tied him to the murder and another shooting incident.

Judge Atcherson found Leon guilty of first-degree murder and aggravated discharge of a firearm into an occupied vehicle in July, according to court records. On Thursday, she handed him 25 years for the murder plus a 25-year sentencing enhancement for using a firearm during the commission of the crime. Those years must be served 100%, according to her hearing notes. She added eight consecutive years for the other charges. That will be served at 50%.

So he will do 54 years in prison, before he is elligible for parole. He will be 74 when that happens.

  1. Housed, fed, and amused for 54 years on my dime (tax dollars); not a bad life if you can get it.
    What's the matter? They ran out of rope?
