    Isn't this like the 3rd or 4th one in the last week? Two of them murders. I guess this is what happens after the RMPD screws up a murder investigation and allows a killer to plea down to involuntary manslaughter spending not even 2 years in prison. I guess the other thugs have took notice.

    Great job there Chief Manley!
