Why was he out walking around? He should have had a speedy trial and been sitting in the can. Why only $6K bail?

Every violent act by this creep is 'related'. He needs to be locked up with no chance at release. . .ever. He's a killer looking for a victim.

Yep, this guy needs to be locked up, after a speedy trial. Unfortunately, money for trials and jails is being held up by the people of Minnesota, in the form of resistance to higher taxes. That's what is needed - less resistance to higher taxes. Then we can have speedier trials and longer jail sentences for creeps. But then Governor Polenta would have to explain to his national audience why he didn't fight the taxes that would put people like that away. Can't have that. His career is more important, isn't it?

If we got away from country club prisons we would need very little money to run them. Look into the waste in the system. If they were structured correctly they could actually pay for themselves. Screw the "cruel and unusual punishment" aspect. Make their lives miserable like they did to the families they screwed.

I saw this creep last spring at Mainstreets in Hopkins. He was buying tons of pull tabs and acting as the big shot ass he is. Put the ahole away

Not true Mr. Bliss. Your governor raised sales taxes and a whole host of fees (aka. "Taxes!"). He was right not to raise income taxes in the middle of a recession. Only an economic idiot would do that. If you need funding for courts and jails I recommend cutting state employees salaries and lavish pensions to help fund it. If that isn't enough cut the social spending that attracts so many dirt-balls from out of state and apply that money too.

As a side note: Why does this criminal get bail? Didn't he violate the terms of his probation with the "domestic".

The vindictive side of me would agree. The moral high ground is hard to take when I'm seeing red. Then I take a chill pill and chant a couple of mantras. 0m...om... just kidding. On the farm, when we needed to turn a bull into a steer, we'd call the vet. He'd come with what looked like type of bolt cutters. He'd put the crimpers just above the jewels and crimp away.(There's that vindictive side again...)

Any time budgets are cut at the state level, the local levels are raised to make up for the shortfall. So not raising taxes at the state level is a chimera. As for cutting state employees' salaries, they're trying that in California. Not going so well there on that score. You get what you pay for. If you pay crap wages, you get crap employees. If we wanted to pay that little for help, we'd open up our borders more. And I'd make being a long-term resident a requirement for getting aid. RE: the side note: I don't know the details on bail requirements. Seems too easy to get, doesn't it? Needs to change. On sales taxes: I believe those tax hikes were mostly voted in by the voters. He did raise taxes on cigarettes, although he tries to call them fees.
