The thing that strikes me the most is that this guy has a past that is pockmarked with extreme violence, insanity, and sickness. At one point, the guy was serving almost fifty years while facing about one hundred and fifty more, but got paroled after only eleven. Why?
I understand that our justice system is designed to err on the side of caution, but dammit when you've got the right violent, delusional, kiddie raping degenerate in cuffs then fry his ass, or put him away for eternity if you don't have the stomach for it. Stop letting these people go so they can widow some poor cop's wife.
You would think this is common sense.
