    Seems to me that if you do the math, he keeps getting out early just to commit crimes. How many times is the system going to release him early? Do we have to wait for him to kill someone before someone takes notice, that this guy is just a bad seed and needs to remain behind bars. I think he has proven over and over again he hasn’t learned a thing, you let him out …then it’s just a catch me if you can game for him!

    My math must be off. If you’re given 2 years in 2007 and you’re and able to commit a crime in 2007 again, where are the 2 years? If you are given 10 years in 2009 and released in 2010, does that equal 10. We need to educate those people that are releasing these people. Or at least the convict needs to be given the parole boards physical personal addresses so they can come by and say thank you. What a joke.
