Less than 8 years for each life is a travesty of justice, and that outside a prison.
When released from the health facility "cured" then he should start a real sentence of life in the general population with them knowing he killed a priest and others.

The person who signs the order for his release should be held personally responsible for his actions when he is released - If the man screws up then that individual who authorized his release should assume the punishment that would be dealt to Stanley....

Three people died that day in Feb 1985. I was a student at the Catholic school associated with that church. I have that day burned into my memory. A day that I would rather never think about. Three people died be cause one man didn't take his medicine and was upset that the 5th grade class all had partcipating parts in the mass that day and he was upset that a girl read a portion of the gospel. I don't care who Mr Stanley thought he was I believe that he still knew wrong from right.

My younger brother was in that school that day and he has never been the same since.
Stabley not only deprived the families of the victims their fathers, but a church community was deprived of their religious motivators.
Stanley has to be on medication to live properly and without it, what happens then?
We saw what happened the last time. We are taught that to forgive is devine, but why can he not be forgiven and still remain where he is at?
I grew up in Onalaska and I had Father Rossiter in my life for many years. He was always there when someone needed him. It was a devastating day for all.

Sure thing, release this nut-job into the public and as long as he takes his meds he'll be fine. Yeah, right!!!! WTF... How about this, if this looney-tune kills or injures another innocent victim while freed the people who decided he should be released have to share a cell with him when he's re-incarcerated. Sounds fair to me.
