System Fails To Protect Us Again

Eight inmates, including a convicted murderer, escape from a New Mexico jail. Seven are still at large.
One of the missing inmates was identified as Edward Salas, who was sentenced to life in prison last month for the murder of a 10-year-old boy. Shots were fired through the child's bedroom window as he slept. Salas was being held at the jail awaiting transfer to state custody, authorities said.
Another escapee, Larry McClendon, was charged with murder and aggravated robbery in the January 2007 death of a store owner.

Sometimes, to protect the rest of us, we have to execute some offenders.
