A Shakopee man with a long criminal history, that is how this article begins. So, I ask this, as I have many times. What in the heck is this freak doing on the streets?
If he has been such a freaking moron, and the court system is aware, why the hell do they let these idiots walk--until they kill someone?

Has a lot to do with Reagan gutting funding for mental health.

What's so funny about this story, in a tragic way, is that if this guy had lived the biggest criminal would have been the Crystal woman and she would have received the most stern sentence! The thief would have been thought of as chemically dependent and abused and troubled, but the book would have been thrown at the Crystal woman for daring to leave her car unlocked.

Of course! That's exactly what would have happened!

Great job Shakopee Police. Thanks for protecting the rest of us from this psychopath. Also thanks for eliminating him and saving us the expense of trial and prison for 30 years.

Where are the cop bashers to defend this POS. I am sure they will come out of the wood working to defend this guy.

Oh yeah, no they wont, this guy is white. They only cry foul if the cops kill a black guys.

Sorry my bad.

Good job Shakopee Police. Another thug bites the dust.

Oh, stop it! I work in the mental health field and most
of the funding comes from state and county budgets. The
president that was in office when this guy was in diapers
is responsible for his crime spree? REALLY?

I'm not guessing when I say the county prosecutors and
judges who won't charge him and then sentence him
(remember, he had 8 convictions by age 30; how many
things were plea bargained down or not charged at all?)
are far more responsible than any president or governor.
Their systems are far more overwhelmed than the mental
health system that this guy should have been sent to.
So they pass him through every time until he finally
does kill someone. That is not the mental health system,
it is the justice system (and I use that term loosely).

No money for mental health, no money for more prisons to house these scumbags, no money for education, no money for roads....Things are messed up and our money hungry, egotistical higher ups have no idea how to fix it. We're in a world of hurt.

My sympathy to the King family and congratulations to the police for taking the killer down.

State and county budgets that ultimately come from federal dollars.

WE have TONS of prisons and are adding new beds all of the time. Maybe if we'd stop incarcerating people for pot-related offenses, then there would be room for people who actually hurt other people.

it's not the occasion to second guess, but regardless - if I knew someone like this, a drug-addled sociopath, I would have a firearm in the house in case he ever did go over the edge.

Nobody is rotting in prison for possessing a small bag of weed. The people who actually do prison time for marijuana are not good people, and society is better off without them running the streets anyway.

Good point made...you are correct. Let the harmless live their lives and LOCK UP these nutjobs forever.

No one deserves to die, but this fellow was a serious candidate to completely dispel that theory. Committing murder, a carjacking, threatening other lives with a vehicle, and potentially another weapon. Events like this make me fully appreciate and realize the meaning of "Peace officer," or "Friends of the peace." Thank you for putting yourselves on the line and protecting the rest of us. Great job!!
