    I guess judges, lawyers, probation officers, etc. are worried they'll be out of work if they keep them locked up. There's also the extreme liberals who feel everyone deserves chance after chance after chance. Education should be a mandatory part of incarceration since it's insanity to expect criminals to just find a new profession after their release. We also need alternative punishments since we think it's possible for prison/jail to be overcrowded. Public humiliation, caning/whippings, litter removal, grounds maintenance, etc. should be used for non-violent offenses. Lastly, incarceration should mean 1 meal a day and only books as a means of entertainment.

    Durham could solve their crime problems pretty easily: quit letting them back out.

    Charged in January and February, why was he let out?
