But has he had enough? Is he capable of living free? So many people like this get used to institutional living, as dismal and crushingly restrictive as it is. Everything is scheduled, you don't make even the most trivial choices for yourself and all you have to do to get by is walk in a straight line. Life on the outside demands a little effort on your part. The odds are he will do what he does best, hurt somebody else and be right back in his cell withen a few months. The public really should not have to put up with and be victimized by this never ending cycle.
