Darnell Wilson Gets 3 Life Terms for Stealing

So maybe he's guilty but 3 consecutive life sentences for shoplifting from Kohl's?  It is reported that he committed 4 felonies outside the state of Mississippi before being arrested there for Shoplifting.  Even so, the sentence seems to far outweigh the appropriate punishment for the crime but I guess a life sentence for stealing in Mississippi is ok.  Turns out under Mississippi's version of the three strikes rule, felonies that you may have committed in states other than Mississippi can be considered in determining whether an offender may be sentenced to life in Prison there.  Recession or not, it's been and still is open season on a black man out here.
