Don't you agree the the police should focus the serious felonies where people's lives are out at risk?<quoted text>
Serious answer, the police do not determine the sentence of a criminal. The police apprehend a suspect, when they believe they have enough evidence for a conviction. The suspect is put on trial, or pleads in front of a judge and the judge determines the sentence.
I mean, a stabbing is pretty minor compared to the recent violent crime spree.
