Rendering Offenders Harmless, Part 45

Escaped murderer is killed by the mother of a family, including a 5 year old child, he had taken hostage with a bloody knife.

Incarceration did not keep this violent man from violating other people.  We do not possess adequate means to render some, probably most, violent offenders harmless to themselves, prison staff, and the public.
