NO NO NO NO NO!
I was there that day. I dealt with this insane man killing 3 people in my church. It could have been much worse since there were over 200 children across the street and the janitor (who was one of 3 killed) was able to warn the lunch ladies and they went in the walk in freezer and barred the door.
Regardless of his mental stability, he killed 3 wonderful men who still had a lot to give.
He sat in church during an All School Mass that morning with over 200 children and parents.
Please do not release him!

"A La Crosse County judge has approved the release of a man found insane in killing a Catholic priest and two others in a church nearly 30 years ago"
"Stanley had claimed to be a prophet sent to cleanse St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Onalaska when he gunned down the victims in 1985."

By my math, that would be around 24 years ago, and not nearly 30 years ago. But what do I know? Only 8 years per person killed.

24 years ago this spring. I was in eighth grade.

I still cannot believe they are releasing him.

Dicky,
I was thinking the SAME thing! pretty sure it would have to be 28 or 29 years to be close to 30....not 24!!! fanastic journalism if i've ever seen it.
