He didn't slip. Our judges

He didn't slip. Our judges and DA's keep PUSHING them through the cracks until they finally kill someone. They are all destined to do it sooner or later.

Once again the prosecutors and judges in Augusta have blood on their hands. It's time to throw the lazy prosecutors and soft judges out and get people in there that will be tough on criminals.
