    That was not his 1st murder- violent crime w/ a gun. If he has been in jail as he should have been, he would not have been on the streets to kill again. He’s the kind of person who should be locked up forever

    Use a gun to commit a crime or a 2nd drug dealing conviction? Mandatory 25 years no chance of parole- society does not need these thugs on the streets
