    What kind of jury determined he no longer posed a threat? They should be locked up in the same cell as him, one by one.

    This turns my stomach. The system just doesn't protect society from rapists!

    After how many rapes is it concluded that a person just can not be rehabilitated? How many people become victims and have their lives destroyed unnecessarily?!

    Well they decided he was no longer dangerous, but he raped another woman after his release. It doesn't seem like he did anything to prove he wasn't dangerous either. He briefly participated in sex offender registry but was terminated for poor attendance. A board of five psychologists decided he was likely to re-offend (and we know he did soon after release). So what in the world made these people on the jury to decide he wasn't dangerous anymore? And victims don't have any recourse for bad jury decisions.
