Parnell's Light Sentence

Kenneth Parnell has again been arrested, this time for allegedly trying to buy a child in Berkeley (Jan. 4). In 1972 he kidnapped Steven Stayner and held him in slavery for seven years. Then in 1980, just before Stayner's escape from Parnell, he kidnapped little Timmy White. And served only five years in prison!

No wonder we have no faith in the judicial system. Maybe it's time to give some of those bleeding-heart judges a good horsewhipping until they come to their senses.
