Egg thrower to face charges, might get eight years in jail for stunt!
Roberto García Díaz was so frustrated and ashamed that he had voted for a governor that has fired more than 25,000 public employees, that he expressed it by throwing an egg at the governor. The unemployed father of five was promptly arrested, accused and released after posting bail.
If convicted, he faces up to eight years, yup, you read right, eight years in jail. Just for throwing an egg against a colonial governor. And a failed one at that!
The guy that threw his shoes against President Bush only served 6 months! He's free already! And he attempted against the President of the United States!
If he gets to go into a courthouse with 12 jurors and some of those jurors are pissed at Fortuño, the guy will walk.
I don't condone what he did, but eight years is a tad exaggerated!
I see embezzlers and child murderers get lighter sentences than that!
This island is going nuts!
