This guy appears to be a drunken bum who needs to go to rehab so medical professionals can monitor and help him detox. This is the exact type of case I'm talking about when I say it is more beneficial to the defendant, criminal justice system, and society as a whole to make an extensive inpatient rehab a first priority. He has the same issues (open container, intoxication, DUI) with the law repeatedly and mostly concerning with his abuse of alcohol, I presume. The article says he was highly intoxicated during this latest incident. If he is just sentenced to jail time he will come out a drunk just as he was when he went in. If he has no choice but to go to a treatment facility and get sober everyone wins. Once sober, there's a high probability of him not having any more run ins with the police. The point is to rehabilitate is it not? Aren't all of you tired of reading the same names in the paper over and over again? What we've been doing isn't working.

I agree that there are too many repeat offenders. Where I disagree with you on this issue is with treatment. You say to rehab them. To that I say give them one chance only. What would have happened if an armed citizen was entering or exiting that apartment complex? The headline might very well have read "Attempted murder stopped by armed citizen." We need public executions. We also need police officers to drive idiots like this guy out to the dump and put a bullet in the back of their head.
