    Because we are too busy worrying about lesser crimes.

    I don't mean to be insensitive, but...I would never have a relationship with a man who had killed his girlfriend. From what was said in the article, this was no secret. What was she thinking?

    TX - Parolee Charged in Triple Homicide

    "CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. - Tony Pope went to prison for bludgeoning his girlfriend to death with an iron skillet and was back out on the streets five years later despite a warning from a friend of the victim.
    ...
    Earlier this month, Pope was charged with killing his wife with a hammer; strangling his 13-year-old stepdaughter; and fatally dropping and punching his 5-week-old son. Investigators said Pope told them his wife was leaving him and taking the children.
    ...
    "I don't want people to think all the parolees out there are potential Tony Popes," board spokesman Jack Elder said. "This is a very unusual situation to have a crime of this caliber committed by one of our parolees."
    ...
    The board considers more than 12,000 such cases annually, and Dalton said: "If you only let go good guys, you are not going to let anybody go."

    Then DON'T LET ANY OF THEM GO

    This sounds like something I once heard a social worker say. Apparently, it was the idea of our local Department of Family and Children's Services during the late 80's/early 90's that "A bad home is better than no home at all."

    This is just backa**wards thinking!

    From June 2006:

    http://www.chattanoogan.com/2006/6/2...ring-Wife.aspx

    Tony Pope entered guilty pleas on Friday to killing his wife, his 13-year-old stepdaughter and 5-week-old infant son.

    He received three sentences of life in prison without parole in the appearance before Criminal Court Judge Doug Meyer.

    Authorities earlier said Pope had "very calmly" described carrying out the killings of Andrea Pope; her daughter, Brianna Justice; and young son, Christian Pope.
