Ty Hill pleads guilty to murder, no death penalty

Ty Hill

Ty Hill pled guilty to participating in the murder of Dystiny Myers on Wednesday in exchange for taking the death penalty off the table.

Hill was facing the death penalty while his four co-defendants are facing murder charges in the 2010 murder of Myers.

In a plea agreement reached with the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s office, Hill agreed to plead guilty to murder with two enhancements in exchange for life in prison without the possibility of parole.

In 2010, firefighters found the badly burned body of Myers, 15, in a shallow grave near Santa Margarita. She was found hogtied with her legs bound behind her, a glove stuffed in her mouth, one of her eyes plucked out, sweat pants tied around her throat and her hands duck taped across her chest.

Jason Greenwell of Nipomo confessed and has agreed to testify against Rhonda Wisto, Cody Miller and Wisto’s son Frank York. Their trial is set for Feb. 4.

As horrible as this story is, in my mind, this is a fine ending for this POS.

A lengthy death penalty trial would have been costly and subject to a jury with an agenda. Even if the jury convicted, his appeals would go on endlessly (on our dime), and he would be in virtually no danger of being executed because CA doesn’t have the balls to throw the switch.

In my mind, this is a good final dispensation.

Let us only hope his brief time in prison (before being sodomized with a bat and beaten to death) is really unpleasant.

So, when the shoe is on the other foot, take the woosie way out. Hill committed a despicable, inhuman crime – for which he should have paid the real price – death.

But, here in California, where no one has been executed for many years (and probably no one will be for many, many more years) – Hill chose to be locked up for life with no possibility of parole, instead of being the ‘man’ he thought he was (by killing a defenseless girl) and going to trial with the almost guarantee of the death penalty. Why?

He must feel that life in prison is a little better when not on ‘death’ row. My understanding is that it ain’t bad either way – if you can make a few adjustments in your life. Prisoners do have access to some of the better medical care, meals provided, TV, exercise facilities, the chance to continue of complete education – all those many things that Dystiny will never have. Probably also have access to drugs, weapons, and all the other perks.

The only real hope is that he will get from some other despicable inmate, the hopefully quick end of his worthless life – to the vast benefit of all mankind.

I doubt he’ll last long when the other inmates find out what he did.

I remember a fellow that attended the same school I did: Elias Tapia. He was 17 in a middle school, where most kids are 12-14. Everyone knew he was a bad one.

The school authorities finally kicked him out. He then was the ringleader in some gang and shot and killed a 14 YO execution style.

One of his cohorts told the cops, and Tapia was arrested for murder. Turned out that the victim was the son of a cop…a jail guard. They had to transfer the perp to another county.

Tried, convicted, sent to prison. No death penalty state at that time.

A year later, he was found hung in his cell, along with multiple bruises !

Kid killers get no mercy.

He would get better treatment and live longer on death row.

Life in prison without the possibility of parole at his age rather than looking to fast track his way out of here ! Strange to learn that he places so much value on life, even when it’s going to be spent in a cage like an animal.

Give me liberty or give me death.

Still, I’d like to give him the latter-after spending some quality time with Dystiny’s relatives. I’m so tired of creeps getting off with much less than they delivered to their victims.

Good….I pray you live to be 120 in your stinky little 8 x 8 concrete hell as satan prepares your real eternity. Your extreme cowardice comes to light even in the end as you turn on the sewer rats you pledged allegiance to you maggot.
