I was rocked to my core as much as anyone by the unfathomable tragedy that befell the Petit family in 2007 and as a matter of political necsessity, I understand the need to "do something" that all pols feel is required in this stituation. I just dont really buy that
would have made one iota of difference in this situation.
Let's be frank. Crimes like these defy all logic. Nothing like this has ever, to my knowledge, happened in this State.
Criminals like these alleged two perpetrators defy logic and are completely unpredicatble.
Update the statutes. Enact new laws. But dont fool yourselves that you can legislate against a lightning strike.
