    Tell me HOW a man who kills his girlfriend by beating her with a frying pan gets out of jail in 5 years, only to then murdr his new wife, her daughter and his own 6 week old baby?


    A Hixson man on parole for murder has been charged with killing his wife, 13-year-old stepdaughter and 6-week-old son Monday.

    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?

    "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 :doh: :behindbar

    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!
