    Who is it that wants to take our guns? NO HUMOR

    I posit that those who would favor more "common sense" regulations on the ownership of firearms are the same folks that sit on parole boards, and other mid level public servants that are a part of the government machine... but only see certain parts of the real world.

    Bureaucrats, who feel their expertise in dealing with the criminal element and the general public "just know" that guns aren't the answer... more government is...

    People who say things like:

    "... concerned about the brutality and violence of Mr. Hitt's crime, as well as the nature and frequency of behavior issues during the first seven years of his incarceration," the February 2011 report concluded.

    Though Hitt started ... treatment "on the wrong foot," he had made "significant progress" by the time he went before the board in August, the reports say.

    "... remains concerned about the challenges Mr. Hitt will face upon release, especially in regards to his chemical dependency, he seems to be thoughtful about his plans for re-entry," the August report says.

    "All things considered, this appears to be an appropriate time to release Mr. Hitt."
    So who is Mr. Hitt? Here's his latest escapade just 7 weeks after he was released:

    the answer, as so many are...is simple

    personal responsibility

    in this case, if the parole people decide a person is fit to be released before his sentence is complete--
    afterall, the judge gave him a certain amount of time for a reason and they are 'changing' it

    --they are responsible for his actions till the time the judge set.
    and if he misbehaves--they are charged and punished the same as he.

    after all, had they not let him out early, he'd be in jail and there would have been no crime
    on citizens that he could have commited. thus the parole people are responsible.

    personal responsibility...rather like all the talk about a kinder, gentler society
    its just talk

    I'll say it for you. Violent offenders need less rehabilitation and more dirt-napping.

    ^^^this^^^ I like "Claude's" idea.

    First there is NO SUCH THING as common sense gun laws, the term is an oxymoron. Guncontrol is not based on common sense but rather fear.

    Here is a novel idea, no parole, no probation, no time off for good behavior...you do the time you're sentenced to...no exceptions.

    The Judge sentenced him based on the jury recommendation, as well as sentencing guidelines set forth in the law...
    Why on earth should a few liberal minded "do-gooders" have the authority to over-ride a Judge in good standing???

    Too humane. Physical castration doesn't solve the problem either. The problem is in the mind and soul of the individual that chooses to do such acts.

    No, but it's like kicking the vending machine when it doesn't give you what you want. In lieu of solving the actual problem, it generally makes us feel better. I like feeling better.

    They just need to throw away the whole Parole idea. Do the crime, do the time.

    I have quit postulating about these things and resort to exercising the appropriate action when needed. The problem has become too much talk and not enough action in regards to those who will force their wants upon the innocents who would rather not be bothered with that. If the system regurgitates offenders to the street to repeat their offenses on citizens, then street rules should apply.

    Lynne De Lano, the chairwoman of the Indeterminate Sentence Review Board, said in a phone interview Tuesday that she was shocked and dismayed to hear of Hitt's arrest. De Lano wrote the board's August report that found Hitt eligible for release from prison.

    "It's a horrible trauma for those young women, and I'm grateful they weren't harmed" further, she said.

    In light of Hitt's arrest, De Lano said, "You can't help but step back and go, 'Gee, should we have done anything differently based on the information we had at the time? Did we miss something in the file, or miss something in the in-person interview?' "
    Right. Step back and ask yourself a rhetorical question, lady. You missed a lot! Yes, you should have done something differently. Step up to the plate, take responsibility, and resign. You are a disgrace.

    May work, may not. No outward appearance difference. Save the $$ on chemicals and just castrate them. Can use the same method that is used to turn bulls into steers. May not be fun, but it has gotta be more humane than what they did to their vics. After castrating them, let them serve their entire sentence. While they are in the joint, they should be making gravel from large boulders. This country club atmosphere has gotta stop.
