What's Two More Dead Girls?

Wednesday, May 11, 2005

Glenn Beck, whom I haven't listened to much until recently, had a good radio program this afternoon. He was arguing how some people just don't deserve second chances in society. For example, if you're caught chasing young kids around with a chainsaw you probably shouldn't get another opportunity to do it again in the free world.

Sure enough, Jerry Hobbs was considered "rehabilitated" and "redeemed" after committing such an offense, and just today admitted to stabbing to death his 8-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old friend in an Illinois park.

How many more kids have to die before we realize almost all of these offenders have had recent prior offenses, often sexually violent ones, and should never see the light of day again?
