I've always said you guys have the right idea for criminals. You give appropriate sentenances that fit the crime and very little, if any, parole - life means life, 10 means 10. We just give a slap on the wrist and then release the SOB's on parole to help them start over again. These SOB's rob us of our life, they should get life (up here 25 yrs and probably parole before that.)
I will mourn the teenager I never was and strive to make that dot of light way out in the far reaches of the end of the tunnel turn into a bright sun.
WE ARE NOT VICTIMS. WE ARE THE SURVIVORS!!!
