I find this story sad in so many ways.
I bring the full force of my rage down on the heads of our elected officials, who seem to think locking non-violent criminals up, while with the other hand waving violent predators with records back out on the street, is what we want. But then since they always seem to keep their jobs, they probably take that to mean we voters like the job they are doing.
The perp, who had a at least one previous incident, of pointing a loaded semi-auto hand gun at an officer of the law, was out on parole for that crime. WTF!?! Anyone who uses a gun in a threatening way is just as dangerous as one who pulls the trigger; it’s just a matter of time before he does.
