Don't agree

I know it's sad, well to me, no it isn't sad... it's not the reporters fault. UNTIL your love one has been sexually assaulted, attempted murder after the fact.. etc, his butt, Mr. Anderson ,should have NEVER been released from jail for the rest of his life. He NEVER deserved to be out of jail. Big teddy bear???? Why was he killed with being around someone shady. I think the report was well written.. it shows still ties and history of crime... she posted the facts! Well done!!! Mr. Anderson wasn't a teddy bear. So for all those who say poor him and poor man, he didn't deserve it..whatever.. at least I can sleep at night now with one more person like him is off the street.. karma.. maybe if it was your child or family member who he committed these acts against you would think different. Your family, so you wont. He got what he deserved, and another one we do not have to worry about his next crime. I know because I have been a victim of men like him. Who cares about his hard upbringing, it doesn't make you a criminal.. you make your choices in life of being a good citizen or ended up like him.

Thank You!

Thank you so much for the kind words about Jason. Those kind words mean so much to all his family and friends.
