Many in Wisconsin surely sighed in relief today when Chai Vang, the mass-murdering Hmong immigrant hunter, was sentenced to life in prison with no parole. (Wisconsin has no death penalty.)

Judge Norman Yackel could have instead named a date when Vang would have been eligible for parole — unlikely perhaps given the terrible crime, but judges can be unpredictable. At least the families of the victims won`t have to face the horror of parole hearings some time in the future.

Vang had been found guilty September 16 of shooting eight Wisconsin hunters and killing six, after a verbal disagreement about his trespassing on the property belonging to one of the hunters. The crime exposed the cultural chasm between Americans and Hmong, characterized by the nanny press as a result of racism, though the critical minds at VDARE.COM found insufficient assimilation to be at fault.

The trial`s outcome demonstrated that mass murder can`t be justified by multicultural excuses, at least not in heartland America. Even a liberal jury imported from Madison was shocked at Vang`s testimony that the hunters deserved to die because they disrespected him.

As a final arrogant gesture after the trial, Chou Vang, the killer`s sister proclaimed about her brother`s crime that "he did it with pride", reminding Americans that not all cultures have the same values.
