End the madness

Monday, March 18, 2013 - Updated: 3:56 PM

Dear Editor:

Take rights from citizens while putting mentally ill and criminals back on the street?

I have seen more and more on the news "parolee" or "mentally ill person" or "had a lengthy criminal background" time and time again committing more crimes. More victims more atrocities committed and yet our state leaders are closing prisons and mental health facilities while punishing citizens with unjust laws like Cuomo's SAFE Act.

How do you justify it? Police and children dead on our streets and we cut the tools we have to stop this? What price do we put on human life?

Instead of putting them back on the streets to hurt more innocents we need tougher criminal sentencing and more help for our mentally ill. We need to aggressively prosecute these criminals and tougher criteria to be eligible for parole.

End the madness and get these people off our streets!

Douglas Berryann
