Yes. heres the story

Police said a suspect, captured at a shopping mall in Monroe, had apparently been shooting at random with a shotgun.

Details on the injuries were not immediately available.

The first shooting happened late Tuesday morning in rural Caldwell Parish. A second shooting was reported farther north, near U.S. 165 in Ouachita Parish, authorities said. Within minutes a third shooting was reported along the highway in Monroe, according to the Web site of The (Monroe) News-Star.

Monroe Police Detective Quitman Holmes said police were told to look out for a white male in a brown or maroon SUV with a window shot out, a state trooper recognized the suspect vehicle and stopped the driver at the mall.

This is terrible. Our judicial system has to wake up and smell the coffee. These shootings are senseless. And "NO" I don't want to hear anything in the election about "GUN CONTROL". Because gun control will not solve this problem. "GUN CONTROL" will ONLY MAKE IT WORSE. Because then ONLY THE CRIMINALS will have guns.

WHATEVER happened to "STRIKE 3 and YOU"RE OUT" law. If someone has two prior felonies and then are caught with a 3rd felony it is automatic prison time. Our judicial system also need to make the Strike 3 then automatically becomes the DEATH PENALTY without APPEALS. Enough is enough and all this killing of innocent people need to stop.

We can't just lock them up in prison. For some of them that is what they want FREE ROOM AND BOARD and everything handed to them.Sending them to prison don't even phase them.
