    He tries to kill again... But son of potential victim, shot and killed the perp.

    From the story linked to in post 1: "Hampton said she didn’t know the man who banged on the door of her home around 3 a.m. "

    Besides why was he out, why the heck did she open her door at 3 AM?
    At least her son was on the ball.

    Well the parole board was correct in that he had less than a year to live.

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is another perfect example of why you should have a gun on or near you at all times.

    Great question.

    If my doorbell rang - or my door knocked on - at 3AM, the FIRST thing I would do is grab my shotgun or pistol. The second thing, after realizing somebody was at my door, would be yelling out, "Who the hell are you?" (I wouldn't be polite at that time of night).

    Too expensive to pay the medical bills. So the solution is to let him out in hopes that he tries to kill someone else and is taken out by a civilian. Mission accomplished...

    Most times when your phone rings in the awkward middle of the night your first thoughts are that a relative is hurt. Possibly she felt the same way when the door was knocked on.

    I thought it was the responsibility of federal prison to alert communities and family victims of early release of the convicted heinous felons?


    A 1986 MENTAL evaluation included in Casey’s file said he was “very irritable and the slightest irritation will make him angry and want to fight people.” It also said Casey heard voices that told him to fight, had near-constant head pain, hallucinations and uncontrollable behavior at times.

    In 1993, Casey was found guilty of felony murder and malice murder and sentenced to life.

    HOGAN WOULD NOT comment specifically on Casey’s case, citing health privacy laws.

    I did not think convicted felons had rights? How sad that he was allowed to hurt anyone ever again let alone effect the life of an innocent child/young adult. Hopefully the 17 year old son understands what a hero he is.

    For whatever reasons these types seem to get out of jail, be it to cut costs for the system or just because, it still isn't right. He had an apparent proven history of violence. What do you do with people like that?

    Well, for one, you keep them locked up and away from the rest of society. They are done, cooked and that's it. There is nothing they are able to contribute to our society due to "mental" issues, and their obvious drug use.

    Yet, they are let loose upon the public time and time again only to wind up like this. It just doesn't make sense to ignore the warning signs of someone in this condition and let them wander about. They are ticking time bombs that will go off at any moment. Keep them locked up. That is the only solution.

    Why exactly was he out?
    States are increasingly letting violent felons with "terminal illness" out of prison because it saves the prison system money.

    In the early 80s the WV prison system paroled a "terminal" cancer patient who was serving a life sentence. The idiots gave the guy a six month supply of cancer meds. He soon came back to prison for selling said cancer meds. Then he was found to be in remission.


    Department of Corrections spokeswoman Gwendolyn Hogan said Casey was released from Augusta State Med*ical Prison in February under a medical reprieve. She could not discuss the nature or stage of his illness.

    Like all reprieves, Casey’s came at the recommendation of his physician at the facility. The recommendation follows a series of steps until it’s passed along to the Board of Pardons and Paroles, which makes the final decision.
