Long Island Railroad gunman Colin Fergusontoday was sentenced to six consecutive life prison terms for killing six passengers on a crowded commuter train. Judge Donald Belfi capped three days of wrenching court statements from enraged survivors of the 1993 shooting spree by also heaping on sentences of 8 to 25 years in prison for each of the 19 additional people injured by Ferguson's fire. "You, Colin Ferguson, will never again return to society," Belfi said. In a rambling statement before the sentencing, Ferguson compared himself to the martyred saint John the Baptist. "He was beheaded by a criminal justice system similar to this," Ferguson said.
