We certainly don't want to hold charges on a mandatory prison term. He serve sentence on present and past crimes on a total basis. But, this only appears as a revenue maker for the city of orlando. Criminals with a long criminal history seem to benefit the legal system will the taxpayers foot the bill.

We certainly don't want to hold charges on a mandatory prison term, it would only make sense. He "should" serve sentence on present and past crimes on a total basis. But, this only appears as a revenue maker for the city of orlando. Criminals with a long criminal history seem to benefit the legal system while the taxpayers foot the bill.

Sorry for the previous - my eyesight is going.

Enough of this revolving door, politicaly correct, miserable justice system. Keep the wacko criminals off the street. If they're "too stupid" to understand the crimes they're commiting, they won't care why their behind bars for the rest of their lives. Why should society be preyed upon by these people.

This piece of crap no longer needs to be alive or living within society. Insane or not, he is 44 and no treatment has helped him. He has already destroyed enough lives. No one else needs to be hurt by this ***#$%%^

First post for this story is correct. Actually releasing the criminals from jail and placing them on probation is a big revenue source for Florida, thus cities and counties too. Criminals out on the street, on probation, pay the state money each month. This is why virtually all prosecutors reduce most jailed peoples charges in order to get them back onto the streets. This creates a larger need for more police, court house workers, lawyers, judges, etc. One fact the public does not understand is that the legislature is looking for revenue FIRST, public safety SECOND. This has been the legislatures position for over 30 years!!! Doesn't matter who you elect!!! The legislature and legal system are trying to get as many felons back onto the streets as possible. Do you ever hear anymore about Florida's "three strikes your out" law? I don't think it existed long.
