Looks like Rosenthal took Jay T. Will as a role-model.

This is a fair and logical sentencing; and one that will certainly help to deter filthy marijuana-injecting stoneheads. Americans are safer with him off their streets.
To be honest, he deserves this just for taking part in that ultimate-fighting bloodsport.

I cannot help but note that had he been selling six million dollars worth of cigarettes, he would've just been a strong investment opportunity rather than a criminal.The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.
