Earl Ellis Green is about to learn his fateful sentence after allegedly murdering a police officer in the Riverside area. This middle-aged man was driving along when a police officer came up behind him. Green jumped from his vehicle and began running, and the officer pursued him on foot. When the policeman tripped and fell, Green grabbed hold of a dumbbell bar and began to beat him. Eventually, he took the officer's gun and shot him in the head. He then drove the stolen vehicle back to the car rental parking lot where he had taken it so that he would not be suspected of grand theft auto. He kept the murder weapon with him.
Green's defense lawyer says that Green committed the murder because of "psychobabble," a condition that causes people to become crazed and confused. The prosecution fought the defense by showing the jury a slide show of the police officer's full life and explaining his gruesome and undeserved death. Reports say that the jury was in tears by the end of the presentation. Presently, the court is deciding between sentencing Green to the death penalty and giving him a lifetime prison sentence without possibility of parole.
