And surprise, surprise. He remains a violent criminal. Revealed: Gunman who opened fire on festival-goers before cops shot him dead was a gang member on early release from prison having been convicted of MURDER
A shooting in Trenton that left 22 injured on Sunday may have been prevented if one of the suspects wasn’t granted an early prison release for murder, and an additional sentence for racketeering during his incarceration.
In 2004 he was sentenced to 18 years for his role in a murder. (He was 17 in 2004.) He got an extra 6 years for racketeering while in prison, related to gang activity. But he was reformed (or something) and so was on the street.
But what we need are more gun laws, to make it even more illegal for a felon to possess a weapon or attempt mass murder. Or that’s what New Jersey’s governor thinks.
Because keeping violent criminals in prison would be socially unjust. Or something.
