First off, I'd like to say that it's good that articles like this don't just fade away after so many months.
Second, I've noticed that these stories always seem to bring out the best and worst in people. It's just too bad that some of this effort to say what needs to be said isn't read or passed on to the politicians who make the laws governing sentencing for these offenders.
Third, to the "whitey/black" arguments, seems like everytime a story is posted about ongoing hunts for unregistered offenders, at least 50% is also black.
The problem lies with each state on how they sentence offenders. In one of the New England states, they have a "truth in sentencing" law that gives 10-20 yrs for 1st offense, 20-40 for 2nd, and automatic life for 3rd. With this sentence, there is NO 85% of time. In fact, 150 days per year of sentence is added to the sentence that has to be "worked off" to get out on parole. 30 yrs plus 150 days per year, 42 and a third years to start out with. Unfortunately, not all states see eye to eye when it comes to these things.
This **** would have also fallen under the 3 time loser law, which would have automatically given him life.
Lastly, the Lorena Bobbit theory. What would you propose for FEMALE offenders?

What a hypocrite.
