BEOWULF: What are these "brother/uglies" doing out on the street? Recidivism will eventually lead to someone's death...Life w/o parole, w/o recourse!

Robbery and stealing is their trade. It's what they know how to do and are successful at. I agree they will continue until there is some incident that puts them behind bars.

we need to write to our legislaters and ask for our sentencing laws to be revised!

WHY is chris being held on such low bail and WHY is he on the streets at all with 5 (FIVE) convictions of aggrivated robbery in 2 years.

Smells like a story behind the story. Who was the judge(s)

We need to know about these judges to vote them out of office.
