(Newser) – "I hope you die in prison." The phrase was heard in court this week as 31-year-old Camia Gamet got sentenced to life in prison for murder. It came not from a member of the victim's family, however, but from the judge himself, reports MyFox Detroit. Gamet, convicted of stabbing her boyfriend to death, earned the judge's ire by rolling her eyes and snickering as her late boyfriend's aunt spoke in court. At one point, Gamet interrupted her to ask, "Is that it?" drawing gasps from spectators, reports MLive.

"She has a right to talk to the court after you murdered a relative of hers," said Jackson County Circuit Court Judge John McBain. In announcing Gamet's sentence later, McBain unloaded, telling Gamet she was lucky Michigan doesn't allow the death penalty: "You were relentless. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed. You stabbed until he was dead," he said. "I hope you die in prison." Gamet, who claims she acted in self-defense, plans to appeal her conviction.

It's sure a lot better than the judges who let killers off for "affluenza". The judges in California let rapists go without any jail time. The FBI has recently stated that the largest pedophile ring in the world is right here in the US government. I think the judge felt comfortable saying those things because in his mind she was 100% guilty.
