Protecting people: Judge Abramson's concern
Thomas Landry, the man accused of shooting a stranger in her car two weeks ago, was back behind bars late last week after the county asked for, and Judge Abramson granted, restoration of an original high bail. The district court had inexplicably reduced that bail to a trifling amount and placed Landry on "house arrest" and told him to stop drinking.
That is good to hear.
Longer term, if Landry is in fact a sufferer of such stress, the government should see that he is properly treated. Americans are right to be sensitive to the plight of military veterans. But that sensitivity is paired with a common-sense attitude toward the immediate needs for public safety.
