Another life taken by a thug with a gun. Wake up Legislators , I am sure the perps are more than likely gun toting felons to begin with. Why does this have to keep happening? I am pretty sure early release or no time served needs to be addressed further.
As the mother of a murdered son in Antioch when will it ever end ? My heart goes out to this young man's family.
