    No, they don't need a season. Nor do they need hunting licenses. It's just another day in America and until these folks start being executed, nothing is going to change. Criminals know that they will get a slap on their wrists, then go right back to the same life as before. This guy will get no more than 10 years, probably less, and be released after only half of his sentence is done, due to prison overcrowding.
