I do agree with Bob on this, we do have to live by the laws as stated but if I were the father I really wouldn't mind killing the son of a bitch.

It seems like everyone wants to treat someone who's done something miserable like this person as if they've never been punished for what they did. I really doubt that his 28 years in prison was a bed of roses, or he got treated like a human being by anybody there. I also doubt that he hasn't had some sort of severe therapy treatment also. People can and do change and it would be up to whatever authorities that exist for him to insure that he can live outside of prison without re-offending. He probably should be re-located and not go back home to pappy.

I don't always agree with the laws, but they are the way they are for a reason. I'm prone to believe that re-offensive rates are much lower than most people want to believe. If they weren't, then the laws would be different. Otherwise, it would be like punishing or killing 98 people for the crimes of 2, if it was a 2% re-offense rate after prison.

Edit: Most crimes that have people that re-offend are probably the result of being in some sort of cycle. You can take that person out of the cycle and he's ok. Then release from prison and put that person right back into the environment that encourages the old cycle he was in and it won't be long before you have another crime on your hands.

Unless you are released and recommit in Massachusetts, during a presidential election campaign. Then it was the Governor's fault.
Or maybe it still was that stupid tank ride????

Not familiar with the particulars, but there's going to be exceptions to everything.

I gotta say, Bob, I agree with your views on the "Texas Hold 'em" laws as I call them. NH has the same.

I don't like seeing these guys get out, but it just seems so unconstitutional and un-American to say: "Well, you were given 18 years, and you've served 18 years. But you make up nervous, so we've re-written the rules and are just going to keep you in there."

If you want them in there for 50 years or life, then just change the sentencing laws and make their sentence that long.... don't change your state prison into Gitmo and throw out the Constitution that makes this country what it is.
