Michelle Lujan-Grisham on Crime
Dangerous, repeat offenders have got to be in jail
Let's all agree that the days of hardened, violent, repeat offenders not doing any real time, getting unwarranted second and third and fourth chances because our system is too broken to hold people accountable . those days
must end and they must end now. New Mexicans are sick and tired of seeing predators circle in and out of custody, never facing the full force of the law. I am too. Dangerous, repeat offenders have got to be in jail.
