When do we citizens get justice? We have traded our right to private vengeance in exchange for public justice, so where’s our public justice?
Since the warrant says “Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury,” we can safely assume that the suspect didn’t wrap the gun in rancid chicken and force the victim to eat it.
Ho hum, another thug attacks someone and gets arrested, right? But here’s where it gets interesting.
His previous convictions include 4 felonies and a class A1 misdemeanor, and he served not a single day in prison for them.
How can we pretend that we have public justice when someone can commit 4 felonies and a misdemeanor in two separate incidents and get probation? How can any justice system pretend to be fair when it hands out probation to a one man crime wave? And how can we possibly be surprised when probation utterly fails to reform the behavior of this multiple felon?
