Thursday letters: Violent criminals must be locked up

August 1, 2013 

— It was frustrating that the two main stories on the July 12 front page were about violent crimes that were committed by convicted felons who were out on the streets on probation or bond. That is outrageous. Build more jails if necessary, but please keep violent criminals where they belong — in jail.

Gabrielle Swainson and Kelly Hunnewell would be here today if those guys were behind bars.
