The Sentence That Can’t Be Appealed

Police in Pinellas Park, Fla., were pretty familiar with Dennis Eugene Emery, 57 — they had 34 “contacts” with him in two years, including arrests for domestic battery, aggravated assault, resisting arrest, and leaving the scene of a crash. They were called to his house again after he had a fight with his wife. Officers say that the fight escalated and Emery went and got a gun, and was threatening to shoot one of the family’s dogs. As he backed down from that threat, he uncocked the pistol — as it was pointed at his face. He shot himself, and was killed. (RC/St. Petersburg Tribune) ...Emery’s final arrest was by Officer Darwin.
