The Burton Case

We have all been shocked by the horrific Burton case and feel for the families of his victims, especially the Kuchenbecker family.

And we have all reflexly regaled against those idiots on the parole board who freed him.

But is what they did really that unforgivable?

They have a hugely difficult job. And hugely difficult jobs inherently come with the risk of occasional errors. Or is a lack of ability to predict the future an error at all?

Read the parole board hearing report here and reconsider. I have.

People who come out attack the parole system really should consider that if they weren't paroled sure they would stay in jail longer but they would be released without any form of supervision.

It will be called 'The Weekend'. We simply incinerate all those in jail, go out and get another 10,000 bad mf and toast them and then on the Monday tell the rest to shape up.
