A couple of questions.

Regarding the subject of this story:

In 1981, Morales and another person burglarized a home in San Antonio and were arrested. While out on bond, he and another person sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman, reportedly pulling her hair and choking her to prevent her from screaming. San Antonio police arrested him in connection with the assault.

Then in 1989, Morales sexually assaulted a 20-year-old woman with whom he and another person had been drinking in a vehicle, police said. He also kicked the woman in the head, injuring her, according to officials, and was subsequently arrested on one count of aggravated sexual assault and later incarcerated.
Why was Jose Morales not in jail? Better yet, why does our government not think those 18- and 20-year-olds deserve to own the one tool that could have equalized the force disparity between them and Mr. Morales? Better that he have been put six feet under than have the taxpayers subsidize his continued existence, don't you think?
