I'll bet $100.00 that when this fellow is caught, the Norwalk Assistant State's Attorney definitely will NOT prosecute him under the "Project Exile" law - 53-202 - which would require 5 years MANDATORY sentence upon conviction! These politicos TALK TOUGH on the gun criminals, but when it comes to action, they WIMP OUT!

Let's DEMAND they prosecute to the FULL extent of the law!!!!

If there's an obsession it's you and Tim's obsession with our PD. what I see when I read this is another repeat offender that's been thru our liberal revolving door justice system before, proving that our legislature are clueless. They are more worried about gun control than violent crime. They all get together to figure out how to restrict everyone's rights a few months after passing early release legislation to save money. Why was he walking the streets? That's the question they need to answer.
