Does anyone else notice a pattern here? This man has always had reduced pleas, the attorneys always figure a way to get him off. I guess it's to much work to actually prosecute someone, to much paperwork so they all make deals and now someone is dead. To any attorneys who may be reading this, how about getting up off your butt and do your job?

Sounds like one of those who should have been in jail along time ago.

This guy shows a*****of a pattern of violence and is still walking the streets because of plea deals. Lets get real. Maybe its time the prosecutor's office be held accountable for this man being out on the streets.

I couldn't have said it better. I'm hoping if we all noticed that, maybe some involved in law enforcement noticed it as well. If someone has a propensity towards violence, it only tends to escalate.

They couldn't lock him up, there's some non-violent pothead taking up the cell. What an outrage.

Now come on, Grant. That really wasn't necessary.

Back to one of these issues: I had a brother (out-of-state) who drove under the influence. I called the sheriff and gave his license plate #, car description (but evidently that doesn't work--they can't have a # on hand and look for a violation, you can only call when a violation is in process). But I always felt that if he hurt someone I would be more angry with those who let him off earlier as I was with him.

Oops--bad grammar--changed a word in a sentence but then didn't change something that corresponded to it.

How is that not necessary??? I personally know people, some of the most peaceful, nice, caring people you'd ever meet, who wouldn't, never did and never will hurt a fly and had no criminal record, who have been locked up for multiple years for mere possession of marijuana. Not ******, not meth. Marijuana. Meanwhile, this scum bag piece of trash has a history of violence and many run-ins with law enforcement and he walks free. And it all culminates with him killing someone. Don't act like no one could have seen this coming from a guy like him. Unfortunately the victim couldn't.

The necessity of the conversation does not hinge on your comfort. Just because you've believed something for years and the idea that you may be wrong is uncomfortable, doesn't mean it isn't a necessary conversation to have. We're talking about innocent lives being taken by people who should be locked up. If that is unnecessary then I have some more words for you that can't be typed here.

And think about the police. The men who have had to deal with this guy in the past. Time and time again because some scum bag lawyer and some idiot judge come together to decide to allow this man to keep walking free. Ending in the police finding the body of a promising young man laying bloodied in the middle of the street.

If you don't want to have the conversation that I've laid out--then sit down and shut up. Because I don't hear any better ideas. We let violent criminals roam free and lock up non-violent criminals. It's an outrage and we have to do something about, period.

Maybe now that it's too late for this great young man and his family, the "system" will lock up the real criminal! The murderer...

Those last posts I can agree with Grant. Just not the one that said that the reason he wasn't locked up before had anything to do with a pothead in jail taking up space. I thought that statement belittled the real issue here.

I'm currently working with a friend of the man who died. Trust me, while there is a lot of sadness over the death, there is much anger over the fact that the man who killed him has just gotten slaps on the wrist before.

But again, I thought your throwing in the pothead comment was unnecessary to the situation and crime here. (If you had added the other comments at the same time, I wouldn't have thought so--it's just that by themselves they seemed insensitive to the situation)

"I personally know people...who have been locked up for multiple years for mere possession of marijuana."

It wasn't in Ohio because its a minor misdemeanor here. That means no arrest and no jail time.

I see we have two stupid people who disagree with the idea of putting a violent individual in jail rather than a hippy. I'd love to hear you make your case. You want to talk about insensitive...

I know what the amount is, Grant. Its a lot. Way more than enough for personal consumption. Your friends were trafficking and that is NOT "mere possession".

Put the bong down, Grant. Its clouding your judgement. We are in now way making a case that a violent offender should be let off in place of some burn out getting locked up for "mere possession"

Kind of agree . Haven't seen anyone stick up for this scum bag.

Except his att.

No, you aren't making that case directly, but you're grossly missing the big picture.

Also, none of the people I alluded to were charged with trafficking. Only possession. It's a very liberal thing to say that there is a distinguishable limit on what can be considered an amount for personal use. Do you buy toilet paper in bulk? I sure hope not, you can't possibly be THAT full of sh*t. See how stupid that statement is?

And thanks for being yet another person on the Salem News website that labels me a drug user in a public forum for the sake of your own argument, rather than any knowledge of it.

I think some of you would absolutely blown away by hearing a law enforcement official echo the same things that I've said here. Although, you've also proven why they avoid saying these things publicly--you'll label them a drug users for even daring to speak the truth.

The main problem is that we weren't originally discussing recreational drug use.

There was a horrifically senseless crime committed that had nothing to do with pot.

Using it as a soapbox for a favorite issue seems tactless.

I find that absolutely fascinating Mr. Mingus. Care to share that public servant's name?

You punted the ball Mr. Mingus. Let's play.
