More than half of those convicted of violent crimes in large urban areas from 1990-2002 had previous convictions, the Bureau of Justice Statistics reported August 6. 38% of those convicted of violent crimes had previous felony convictions, and an additional 18% had prior misdemeanor convictions.

I just don't get this. The latest murderer running amok here already had 3, THREE, felony rape convictions. Now he's killed several people.

One felony conviction for a violent crime against another person is enough for me to lock the guy up for life. I can't find any reason to let these cretins loose so they can prey on our society. Is our legal system that perverted that this continues without even a hope of it changing?

Nanny society... blame society, white males, sun spots, drugs, parents, and the victim, but always give the perp a second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth chance.
