Why was suspect free?

June 07, 2006

Re "Officer Shot by Gunman Is Stable," June 5

The Times reported that Los Angeles Police Officer Kristina Ripatti was shot by a suspect who is a career criminal and whose crimes include murder and armed robbery. The Times should investigate just how a murderer was ever let out of prison. Precisely who let this guy out and why? Why is it that we are incarcerating minor drug users while letting a killer free to roam the streets? What are we thinking?
