If you do, then this should enrage you. After serving less than two years of a seven year sentence, this killer was freed from prison.

"I want to remind everyone that this case dealt with the tragic death of a child," Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said in a statement Monday. "Mr. Greenhouse's early release is a disappointment."

"Unfortunately, (Greenhouse's) early release is yet another example of the lack of transparency in our criminal justice system, as it relates to victims and their families," Landry said.

LAGOP Statement on Baton Rouge Law Enforcement Shooting

(CLEVELAND, OHIO) -- Following the Baton Rouge, Louisiana shooting of multiple members of law enforcement by currently unknown suspects, Louisiana GOP Chairman Roger F. Villere, Jr. released the following statement:

Moments ago, the Louisiana Republican delegation here in Cleveland was notified that our home was attacked. Our delegation, elected by our neighbors, is mournfully awaiting details on this reported attack on our police force by multiple assailants.

This tragic shooting affects black and white, rich and poor, civilians and public servants alike.

This cowardly crime is an attack on the values of law and order that members of the Baton Rouge community so desperately tried to maintain in the 12 days since the eyes of the world focused on our state.

We send this message to those who would threaten to divide us: We are Louisiana and we will stand united and prayerful against evil.

We are reminded in Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
