What should be done with Jerry Hobbs
Jerry Hobbs is the rage-filled, domestic-abusing career criminal who killed his 8-year-old daughter and her 9-year-old friend, with scarcely enough provocation for even a spanking. He has apparently given a confession (saying that the 9-year-old pulled a knife), and I can't imagine a jury will acquit him of such a heinous crime. I sincerely hope that the Lake County, Ill., D.A. doesn't pursue the death penalty. No, I'd like Hobbs to return to jail (yet again), this time for the rest of life, and have to contend with the most violent men in Illinois. You know—the sort of men who don't take kindly to anyone who murders sweet little girls. With a little luck, even the white supremacist prisoners will turn their backs on Hobbs. Apparently he hasn't learned enough about being victimized during his previous incarcerations—this time should do the trick.
