people make me sick... if he's not a citizen of this country he needs to be sent him back to where he came from..... at least cut off his hands or just shoot him in the head.. maybe these low life poor excuse for humans will have something to fear for their actions... as it is now, it's just room and board complements of the taxpayers

Is it just immigrant people, african people or all people who should be sent back to where he came from. Unless you are native American, you too are likely an immigrant. What if he was born in CT, then where should he be sent?! The justice system is full of people from here who are being taken care of just like this person will. Is every person in the system a low life excuse? What is it that you are really angry about here? Be honest and write what you really mean. Don't just allude to it!

They probably would require him to post bail if he was facing punitive mutilation or execution. Maybe you should check Sharia law to make sure...
