Not way off topic... after all what we've seen with the judicial/penal system comes from the "compliance" of the masses (all of us)... the criminal has more rights. The prosecutors want more convictions (which means more deals and pleas to lesser charges) so that we will re-elect them; or, if that is not an elected position, re-elect their boss so that they keep their job.

We can't make prisoners do real work any more, that violates their rights. And on and on, in a "death spiral."
- Is a prison really over-crowded if you can still get the gates shut?
- Why can't we put prisoners on chain/work gangs any more? (Costs of more guards for this would be offset by money saved on municipal improvement projects currently spent on contractors; some of whom hire ex cons anyway.)
- Why can't prisoners only have access to their bedroom(cell) for 8 hours a day, for sleeping only? Work them in shifts... That's not cruel and unusual punishment, factories all over this country run around the clock in shifts.
There are hundreds of questions like this. It's just sad that this "kidiot" who obviously has problems, got out of the system without treatment. Not that he would have been "cured" but perhaps institutionalized instead of running amok.

Your job is to "serve us" not to lord power over us."
