Unfortunately these men have made their decisions, and we, and they must live with it. Just like the young men who, in coldblooded, gun down the delivery driver, no amount of prevention will help their victims once the crime is committed; but we have an opportunity to set the conditions so that this thing is increasingly rare. We have a choice, invest in prevention, or invest in incarceration and medical care.
Our taxes have remained low (http://www.wilmingtonnc.gov/city_manager/budget_fast_facts/how_do_we_com...), maybe it's time we invest a bit more into our schools and a little less (eventually) into our jail.
