He agreed to leave the USA so now send him out in a body bag. He had his chance to leave on his own two feet. Time for justice before someone else is killed.

It was a 'compassionate' Ohio judge that set him free. Never forget, judges are lawyers, and generally economicaly failed lawyers, who run for judgships because they were unable to make a living. They were unable to make a living because of inherent stupidity, so they went for the public trough where not much is expected or demanded.
Duh

He is still adjusting to life on the outside. There needs to be more programs for people like him so he won't feel the need to re-offend. This is the fault of a society that is not patient enough with our felons and refuses to dedicate the time and money necessary for their rehabilitation.

From Groundskeeper Willey beating his kid half to death up in Baxter to Somali's shooting each other in Minneapolis, we certainly have our share of diversity here, don't we?

The guy was just probably dissatified with the American education system, and was trying some home schooling.

The kid is 20 years old, is a drug user, and was on supervised probation for 2nd degree assault. That is the son, not the father.
The father who was released from death row, has been charged because of the allegation the son made.
This isn't a conviction, it's a charge brought up by the son's 911 call, and someone who, is now on the run and considered a wanted fugitive per the MN Doc.
Tired of this kind of crappy reporting which obviously influenced all of you by saying the magic words "death row". Sensationalism. This paper is becoming a joke.

Shortly after his release from death row, he returned to Glasgow, Scotland. Soon after his arrival, he was also charged with assaulting an elderly man there. Even his supporters are tired of making excuses for his behavior and are now distancing themselves from him. It is just a matter of time before he is incarcerated again.

2009? the kid was not born last year!!

I believe this idiot has joint British-US citizenship (American father, British mother). Strip him of his US citizenship, put his name on the no-fly list and bar him from entering the US ever again.

Let him be a menace to British society instead. Send him back and don't ever let him in again!
