Imprisoned Killer Kills Again, Or "The Price of Misguided Compassion"

Yet another example of why incarceration does not "render offenders harmless:

A man who was already serving a life prison term for a 1992 murder in Orange County has been sentenced to 88 years to life for strangling two cellmates.Superior Court Judge Stephen Marcus said Tuesday that Kurt Karcher didn't show remorse for killing Scott Manning at a state prison in Lancaster in 2006 and Edgar Jimenez at the Twin Towers jail in downtown Los Angeles in 2007.

Marcus told the 42-year-old defendant that he was "essentially a killing machine."
