  2. This man is the dumbest AG ever and people actually vote for this guy…..people robbing and killing out here and he letting out prisoners that serving 20 and more years for murder and robbery……i understand he wants more work for his firm but we the people out here wants peace…….. This meeting should exclude him what does he have to offer

  3. People in prison for plants and this man letting go people that commit rape and murder unbelievable…..the happy program should be part of the hard labour , not saying they should not get a little more privilege ,conjugal visits could be one because that would help,but setting some one serving 17 years for cold blooded confession murderer out after 3 years is mad mad …. i know his firm represented a few of them but what could have cause this an investigation needs to be had.. Questions did some one receive money for this to be done from family members member these alp ministers have a track record
