Post This Man Turned His Life Around In Prison

A man incarcerated for 47 years, longer than any other inmate in Louisiana's state prison, gained his freedom Thursday after Gov. Kathleen Blanco commuted his life sentence for second-degree murder.

Time for lame duck Blanco to finish abusing the office of Governor. The man committed a murder and got life in prison. Blanco is a fool and is showing her true colors once again. I would have thought Burl Cain would have better sense.

Ehh, I'm OK with releasing 73 year old inmates. Keeps us from having to pay for their housing and medical care in what is sure to me the most expensive stage of their lives. Medicare is cheaper than prison.

The Government will still have to pay for them either way.

This man has obviously turned his life around. He has been able to even impact the inmates around him as much as that is possible. I believe he deserves the chance to get out and share his story. You never know what life he can touch and perhaps make a difference. Just because he committed one murder doesn't make him a serial killer. Furthermore, God forgives us shouldn't we forgive him and allow him to move forward?

The Bible would dictate that someone that commits murder should be dispatched by a family member or the law. I do not doubt that this man repented and that is great for his eternal soul but he will only find that out from the eternal judge.

So are you saying that every person that commits murder should be put to death?

Tall tree, very short rope.

This man however was not sentenced to death. With that in mind, why should my tax dollars pay for him to sit around in prison? I believe we need to go back to chain gangs, prisoners growing their own food or they don't eat, hard labor, etc.

He should have been if he did the crime. String him up and spend no tax dollars. If gets out the government will still have to pay for him. Yes he can still hold a gun.

I am so happy to know you have a warm fuzzy Sal. Must be the bleeding heart in you that keeps you so warm. Have a wife or children ? How would you feel if someone killed one of them by bashing their head in ? Would you feel compassion for the poooooooooooooor murderer ? The compassion is for the family of the victim not the sorry bastard that killed their family member. I am sure you feel different than I do and in America we call that choice. In the Bible it is called choice and it yours to make.
