    UNTIL OUR JUSTICE DEPT., AND THE COURTS CHANGE THE PUNISHMENT FOR VIOLENT CRIMES, THESE THINGS WILL CONTINUE SINCE THE PERPETRATORS LACK ANY FEAR OF DOING ANY JAIL TIME. EVERY DAY YOU HEAR ABOUT SOMEONE BEING ARRESTED THAT COMMITTED A CRIME, AND THEN YOU HEAR THEM SAY THAT THIS PERSON WAS ARRESTED 58 TIMES,ETC.,ETC. THOSE COMMITTING THESE VIOLENT CRIMES HAVE TO BE PUT AWAY ONCE AND FOR ALL,AND NOT BE ABLE TO ENJOY FREEDOM CAUSED BY OUR SWINGING DOOR JUSTICE SYSTEM.
