I am living in an upside down world. I don't like what I see day to day.
Evidence of complete insanity everywhere.
My blood BOILED yesterday when I saw that Charles Manson follower and attempted murderer of a PRESIDENT, Squeaky Fromme, will be released from prison later this month.
What the HELL is going on here?!?!
No, she wasn't implicated in the infamous Manson murders of 1969.
But in Sacramento, California in 1975 when I was 4-years-old, Fromme tried to kill President Gerald Ford.
I repeat...this creature aimed a gun at and tried to kill an American President.
She was sentenced to LIFE and became the first person to be sentenced under a Federal law that came to be after the horrific assassination of President Kennedy in 1963.
So, we had hopefully learned after Kennedy's death that we could not take acts like this lightly.
But what does it mean when you are given a life sentence that ISN'T a life sentence. If you can't stay locked up for trying to kill the PRESIDENT for goodness sakes, what CAN you stay locked up for?!?!
So this unfortunate creature will soon be roaming the streets of America.
Parole is what needs to be abolished, not the death penalty. Sorry. You commit a violent act like that, you NEVER SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY.
This past June, John Hinckley, Jr.--who tried to kill President Ronald Reagan--was actually given a driver's license and more time away to see his dear mother.
CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS?!?!
Our legal system is falling apart, if it hasn't completely collapsed already.
I've always had what I consider to be an interesting and important idea.
Whenever a parole board or judge decides to grant leniency to crackpots like Fromme or Hinckley, they need to agree to one simple thing first.
The felons they release need to spend the first 6 months in THEIR homes, sleeping in bedrooms next door to THEIR sons and daughters. They have to have them work for THEM. Hang out with them. 24/7.
Oh would that be too creepy and dangerous?
Yes, it would be.
Thanks for nothing, you useless and arrogant parole boards. Thanks for letting the sewage of society walk among us when the only thing they deserve is the confinement of a prison cell.
I guarantee you if my idea was the rule, Fromme and Hinckley and millions of others would never get out into society again.
