  1. Now someone else is dead because of him, what is wrong with the legal system? He should still be in prison from previous crimes and then when he is released he should have been deported right then and there, but no, he is out early for some reason and allowed to just do as he pleases and ends up shooting someone else and kills them, how long of sentences will he serve this time? A month or two then be released? What a joke, I have always been proud to be American but it’s becoming harder and harder because of all these embarrassing things our legal and political system keep doing, it’s not right and if you think it is right then you are part of the problem
