    We’ve had two (2) stabbings recently in Northwest Louisiana. I think it is past time that we pass some sensible knife laws in this country as I see this as a growing problem. Knife violence MUST be brought under control. NOW!

        in the moment. But it’s a **** move, and you’re not convincing anyone.

    According to the Post: “D.C. police records, Spires, 18, was arrested Thursday on
    an unrelated charge of robbery using force and violence in Northwest
    Washington. He was released Friday — a day before Sutherland’s slaying —
    when the charge was reduced to a misdemeanor, according to court
    records.” Nice job DC – you have a violent criminal that should be locked up for years, and instead you let him out so he can kill someone 2 days later. Great work. That’s for keeping DC save.

      It is criminal negligence to have released him. I somehow wish these perps could be retargeted onto the DAs and judge that reduce the charges that allow them to be released.
