The law is wrong in this case. This guys entire life because someone else died shooting at cops?
Insane. He should escape.
(a) A person commits the crime of murder if he or she does any of the following:
(3) He or she commits or attempts to commit arson in the first degree, burglary in the first or second degree, escape in the first degree, kidnapping in the first degree, rape in the first degree, robbery in any degree, sodomy in the first degree, aggravated child abuse under Section 26-15-3.1 , or any other felony clearly dangerous to human life and, in the course of and in furtherance of the crime that he or she is committing or attempting to commit, or in immediate flight therefrom, he or she, or another participant if there be any, causes the death of any person.

Am I the only one who sees something really wrong with all this?
Not sure how you mean. Do I think it's "fair?" Well, the law isn't all that interested in fair, so I don't see a problem there. This is a pretty common outcome to incidents where a person is part of a group committing a crime and somebody gets killed in the process. Everybody goes up the river. It's sad, but then again, the world is full of sad things.
