T.J. Lane showed no remorse in court on Tuesday, as the high school shooter wore a “killer” T-shirt while sitting inside the courtroom and facing the victims’ families.
The parents of the deceased teenagers Lane killed last February gave tearful statements while Lane smiled at them with his smug shirt. One woman, who looked Lane in the face, said he was lucky he was surrounded by armed police officers.
Another man, related to 16-year-old Demetrius Hewlin, said he’ll miss how Demetrius would help him put on his shoes and, generally, was a very helpful and warm teenager.
One woman called Lane an “animal” and said she was thankful he would soon be locked away in a cage. She said that Lane will be forgotten, a mere footnote in history, as he rots away in prison for the rest of his life.
Turns out, that woman appears to be right. Because sentencing has just been handed down on T.J. Lane.
The shooter who enjoyed taunting the families of the three victims from the school shooting last February received three life sentences.
As for the shooting itself, it occurred at Chardon High School. Chardon is located east of Cleveland, Ohio.
