The Cummings had moved from California to Belfast, Maine just two years before. But theirs was anything but a conventional marriage. They slept in separate bedrooms with guns under their pillows, and James was a particularly rapacious pervert.

He was also a Nazi bastard with a fondness for Hitler, collecting Third Reich memorabilia along with a whole lot of weaponry. When police searched the house, they found a load of guns, radioactive material, and instructions on how to make a dirty bomb.
It seems our little Nazi had been freaked out over since a black man had been elected president, and he often talked about how the world was coming to and end.
One might conclude that Amber did the world a good turn when she decided to shoot the creep. But prosecutors didn't see it that way. They originally asked for an 8-year-sentence.
Yesterday, a judge decided otherwise, giving Amber a suspended sentence and allowing her to go free.
For a brief moment in Belfast, Maine, all was right with the world.
