I'll never understand. Our justice system puts the "rights" of this animal ahead of the rights of society to be kept safe from him and those like him. When he hurts or kills again, those who fought for his release can pat themselves on the backs. He should have never been let out. What he did in 1979 should have sealed his fate for the rest of his pathetic life. He gets to live free again, but his victim is dead forever. It's not right. I'll never agree with this decision. Screw the laws when a savage pig like Wayne Stevens is who they benefit. This was a HUGE mistake. It makes me sick.

Give it up, Tony! Stop using your public office to try to get a favorable opinion of yourself into the public eye. The State laws on the release of people after they have served their time is not for you to ridicule, nor try to circumvent, but to abide by. If you don't like it, try to change it WITHIN the system. Or is THAT against your principles?

So are you volunteering that the scumbag move into YOUR neighborhood then? Perhaps you wouldn't mind him working somewhere near where your children are???

Excuse me, but frankly, I don't have to get over it. Regardless of what you think, I don't give a damn about his rights! Don't YOU get it? He's not worthy of having rights after what he did. The crime he did was beyond horrible. Would you feel the way you do if he had tortured and murdered someone YOU love? Think about it. Perhaps you'd like to live next door to him, since you apparently agree with his release, and think he's all better now. Oh, and by the way, I doubt it's the end of this story. Once a rapist killer, always a rapist killer.

No, you don't have to. It's your choice, because you have the right, just like any other American. And I have the right to say, He did the crime, he did the time. He has a right to be free!!!!!!1

Whether Mr.T has his own agenda? I sincerely hope his interest is for justice and not wasting taxpayer $ for PR. Ok, I'll give 'em the benefit of the doubt (Hope this doesn't come back to bite me in the a**).

A little byline on the judicial system, maybe for another topic? What the heck, I‘m here now.

Only one problem with the death penalty: If, at some point in time (after sentence is carried out) it is determined that the particular person was actually innocent of the crime... it's too late. Fix that injustice. What the media doesn't always press its ear to is that these injustices (means little if you read it, large if you live it) happen every day. "Man in prison for 12 years... not guilty". Makes a small, but soon forgotten news article once in a while. The twist? Innocence is a foregone conclusion, but rather than admit to “prosecutorial misconduct, inadequate representation by the court appointed attorney, improprieties via the judge… or just plain ignorance…” the deal is made… accept immediate release from incarceration and seek no civil damages or… fight for your life again. A good attorney advises “No, you will be released AND sue”. A lesser (court appointed?) attorney says “Take the deal”.

OCCASIONALLY investigators, prosecutors and the many other un-named, but behind the scene affiliates attempt to bring a conclusion to the case that fits THEIR story line, whether their storyline is true or not. Make those odd pieces of the puzzle fit at any cost. For the most part, we all understand and accept this as being part of the job.“Go for the throat prosecution” is what “feel-safe” America wants. Well, we pay a penalty for that feeling. What’s the old saying?“There are two sides to the story… and then there is the truth”. This is the complete reason for the “Trial by jury” right afforded us. Defense says “Completely innocent”, prosecutor says “Guilty as H***“. Somewhere in the mix is the truth. Yet then sometimes in the apparent quest for justice, politics also has its weasely way of slipping into the recipe. For whatever reasons,(re-election time, census says get hard, etc...) people are prosecuted "to the fullest extent of the law… and a little more", when in fact they are completely innocent... or only slightly negligible. It happens every day. We have all read it. Why are people often “overcharged” when they are accused of a crime? Room for the plea you say? Yes sir. So, Joe blow can legally be accused of more than he is obviously guilty of to induce a plea, which obtains the conviction. Justice has been served (happy taxpayer) and everyone gets paid (happy court). Ok, I half expect to be slammed for this post… but instead of jumping right in and trying to and smack my rump via an off the cuff reply, give it a little thought. My advise… follow a case (almost criminal any case will do), be in the courtroom beginning to end… and then see if all went as you expected.

On the bright side, our judicial system appears to be striving for "excellence"... it just has a long way to go.

The way I figure , In 5-15 days most of you will grow tired and forget about Stevens . You will go back into your comfort zone , your forums and blogs and choose not to get involved with the local community and State politics because you do not have time , have other things to do etc.
The other vision I have is a figure there are maybe 30 different people who have post there concerns about Stevens . I wonder how many of you took the time to write a letter to those about changing our laws to prevent this from happening again .
What are you doing about the Sue Sheldon case . Marvin Snyder killed her a few weeks ago in GR. How many of you are contacting the local officials and letting them know if this is the guy that did this crime then he needs to go away for ever . What about Stephen Grant ? He is suspected of killing and cutting his wife into many pieces in a Detroit Suburb .
We need to reinstate the death penalty and let the liberals know that we do not care what they think about Lethal Injection being inhumane . So is murder . Why give these murders the opportunity to live in a state prison without having to worry about getting up for work , paying bills . Our prisons are filled with those who do nothing but eat , sleep , read , have internet , No bills , free medical cable TV , air condition in the summer , heat in the winter and much , much more . I read somewhere the average prisoner cost about 110,000.00 a year . If they have bad health or need heart surgery that cost can go as high as a million dollars . If they are diabetic , need eye glasses we pay for it . While many good citizens struggle to achieve a few of these things .
It is time to be heard and time for the Liberals to move to another country .
