I had to look up second-degree, first-degree, voluntary manslaughter - so here I am - confused. Is it only in the states that you can kill a human being and get only a maximum of 15 years? Many of you - know this individual - enough said! So two years served this last February - time off for good behavior - of course he has had time to think about what a dangerous - destructive drug - to the point that the individual does not any longer recognize the difference between right and wrong - can do to you! Obviously, the law does. And once again the law gives an abuser(cystal Meth) the right to take a HUMAN LIFE!! Well, three years he will be back on the streets of Carrizozo!! The Meth problem runs deep here - would he of faired so well out of the county. Maybe, the court employees know!!
