    There are 3 easy steps to dael with a person like this:
    1 insert inmate
    2 close cell door
    3 lose key.

    We can't afford to keep prisoners like this behind bars for 50 years unless we change the prison conditions. I say pack them in like rabbits with 1 meal a day and little else. Of course the bleeding hearts say they still have rights even though they didn't honor the rights of their victims. I wish the victim in this case would have snuffed out this perp. She would have gotten off since it would have been self defense.

    Wonder if it was the same woman he was in jail for beating on? About 50 years in prison would do him some good.

    Unless people like this are kept behind bars, they will continue to commit more crimes.
