In case you missed this one, our own "Honor Code", John Bel Edwards, has decided that one of the most important things that needs to be done in this state is prison reform. As a result, countless number of prisoners will be released. As with most everything that a liberal might try, there will always be the problem cases. One particular case would be this:
Law enforcement agencies in this area are especially worried because of the early release recently of a “career criminal” who has since been indicted for first-degree murder in the shooting death of a 10-year-old boy. He also wounded a 17-year-old whom authorities say may never walk again.
The accused man was paroled after serving 24 years of a 99-year prison sentence for armed robbery and other crimes. No explanation has been offered as to how he managed to be paroled.
One can only hope that the "governor" sees what a potential release of criminals will do for society and the citizens of Louisiana. We urge him to carefully look at each and every case.
