Former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (it took me three tries to spell his name right) ended his time in office by commuting the sentence of a man convicted of manslaughter. What makes it even worse is that the convicted killer is also the son of California’s former Assembly speaker. Here are the details from CBS News:
On his last day as governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger commuted the manslaughter sentence of a convict in a 2008 stabbing death at San Diego State University who also happens to be the son of California’s former Assembly speaker.Schwarzenegger reduced the prison sentence Sunday for 22-year-old Esteban Nunez, son of former Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez, from 16 years to seven years, calling it excessive because the young man, who pleaded guilty to charges including involuntary manslaughter, did not personally stab the victim and had no prior criminal record, reports The San Francisco Chronicle.
Nunez pleaded guilty in May to involuntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon for his role in a fight that killed a 22-year-old college student near San Diego State.
Even if Mr. Nunez didn’t stab the victim, he still took part in the murder and therefore is just as guilty as the stabber. The former Governor should be ashamed that he helped a politically well-connected criminal. Greg Gutfeld made a great point about the Governor, suggesting that he is like the bad guys he used to fight in movies.
