It's about time they arrested someone. Now all we need is what they do in Texas. If you do a crime with a weapon you will serve at least half of your time before being eligible for parole. Maybe some of the gangsters and drug addicts commiting these crimes will think twice about it before doing so! And that should be a joint effort on both sides of the State Line. If you have to release some of the criminals from State Prisons, at least let them be the non-violent criminals. It is time we put the violent criminals away for longer sentences, and give them lots of time to really think about what they did. Until we, as a society finally stand up a say we have had enough of the violence, these type of criminals will continue to be a plague to decent citizens. I urge all citizens to vote for politicians that will take a stand on this matter. And if the politicians don't, then it is time to vote them out of office, and vote for someone that will.
