Why keep him around? He's not going to be worth anything to society.

What I don't get is he did it and he "may never leave prison," whereas that other guy in Stow was GOING to do it, but luckily it was a decoy, and he got off with a small fine??? Also it looks like he was crying. Boo. Hoo. It's a shame he's wearing that t-shirt.

I was thinking the same thing about the shirt Leigh.... they should have removed it before the pic. I'm sure Hungry Howie's doesn't want (or deserve) that kind of negative publicity. And yes Earl, I wish we had the death penalty for sex offenders, they're as as, if not worse, than murderers.
