A life sentence

William A. Jacobson writes about the murder of Shelley Dadon in a post titled The ‘I Can’t Breathe’ case you never heard of.

When I read yesterday that the murderer was handed a life sentence, I immediately thought the article should have read, "the murderer was sentenced to being provided with three meals a day, free medical care, an option to pursue further studies and free lodging until such time that a prisoner exchange necessitates his release."
Meanwhile, Israeli citizens who are living in poverty who haven't murdered anybody cannot be assured of where their next meal is coming from.

The Nazareth District Court handed a life sentence to taxi driver Yousef Hussein Halifa on Wednesday and fined him NIS 258,000 (about $65,800) over the murder of Afula resident Shelley Dadon last year in a high-profile case.
