DID YOU KNOW? it is far cheaper with new private prisons (one of the biggest pac groups out there) to jail someone than put them on welfare...
in other words, just jail all the poor people and put them in work camps...
just like the soviets did...
this precident gives the ,very human and capable of mistakes, government an excuse to jail anyone they want anytime they want without any rights...

The absolute abject knee-jerk reaction to this story by those seeking yet another way to indict neocons, conservatives and the Bush administration for laws passed and abused in a blue, blue state is astounding to say the least and shows an inability to objectively determine just whom is to blame for this dangerous precedent.

Morales faces the most serious charge of second-degree murder as a terrorist act. A New York grand jury returned the charges against him in connection with the shooting death of 10-year-old Melanie Mendez, who died from gunshot wounds two years earlier

First of all 25 years ago this wouldn't have happened because everyone on the block would have had at least a .38 and no punk kid is gonna risk having the whole neighborhood gunning for him.
If there was half a brain cell present in the average citizen you would all wake up and smell the f-ing coffee!! THe government is not on your side!
Personally if these little punks would have been in my neighborhood about 15 minutes after they pulled their first stunt the police would have got an anonymous call and found the whole lot of them worse for the wear tied up in an alley.
The problem with this is it sets a phenomenally dangerous legal precedent and a bi*** prosecutor who justify's something like that in 2 sentences that contain no statements of facts just her opinion ought to be hanging on the post next to this gang banger f-ck.
