That news article is a mess. Past tense, present tense, future tense. Headline says he is caught, while a portion of the article states what to keep an eye out for in spotting the suspect. Terrible writing.

You have to remember who you're dealing with here, people like Suzanne Geha - she couldn't think her way out of a wet paper bag. Rachel Ruiz - lets face it, she didn't get hired because of her above average intelligence. Brian Sterling - woodtv's just happy if he can get to work without getting another DUI. Look at all the past employees they've had (Robertson, Tom Van How) don't expect much.

What I don't understand, here is a man who is considered highly dangerous, had committed murder and yet he was released so he could committ more crimes and endanger more people. Since when does a murder conviction carry anything less than a life sentence? The person who was murdered doesn't get to come back and enjoy their life after X number of years time, so why does the person who murdered them get to? Jonathan Good never should have been considered rehabilitated and released.He should have been in a high security prison, not some county jail where he could easily escape. Who ever paroled him, obviously doesn't know what they are doing and should be removed from their office. Thank God that Jonathan Good has been captured, hopefully this time around he will be put into a high security prison and left there for the rest of his life.

Thursday,

Here's a hint. Good is a convicted murderer. He may have served his time for the crime, but that doesn't change a thing.

He is currently awaiting a myriad of other charges, but he was convicted in the past for MURDER.

Tom: You need to get in the real world! Until you and everyone else wants to pay to keep people in prison, killers will be on the streets. I am tired of hearing that the prisons are full of people convicted of having/using drugs. That is a joke. Michigan prisons are full of dangerous people. Unfortunately, most people don't know the truth.

The bad thing about Suzanne is when her and her husband started up that " Kabookies" restaurant in East Grand Rapids. They couldnt even keep it open for 2 years, and I still wonder if her and hubby got grant/gov't money for opening it in the first place? What a dis-service to Jimmy Gerken. I figured that restaurant would be open forever. Dont tell me they didnt have the capital at least to keep it open and be somewhat profitable. It was probably started initially because of someone capitalizing on tax dollars to open it.

I think the police allowed him to escape, just to pin another charge upon him. Where is the documentation? They planned this on their personal cell phones so we can't gather any evidence, I sense a pattern here. I think the jail should have their own chapter of the ACLU. I think the escapee should sue. The police violated his civil rights, because the have badges and guns.

(I have to go, another police car drove past.)

You cannot pay the debt of murder. And last time he was released look what happened..he threatened to kill and now has 30 felony charges not counting escaping jail and running away from the police. He has not paid his debt. And I am glad they found him so I and all other students and people in general can feel safe.
