FAIRFIELD-SUISUN, CALIFORNIA

Opinion

Sound off for Feb. 10, 2013

By From page A8 | February 10, 2013

Last week, the Daily Republic  presented a three-part series on Francis Cunanan, an ex-con in the Mission Solano Rays of Hope program.

Here are some comments on the series:

  • This is a good human interest and community affairs story. You should do a follow-up on how this troubled youth is doing in about six months. California has too many people locked up and its truly a reflection of a failed state and society. We all want to be tough on offenders but there has to be a path to redemption and progress.
  • Great story. Proves there are felons who want help and want to succeed, if they just have the resources.
  • Why is this the second day in a row that the Daily Republic has featured this parolee’s story on the front page? I can think of a few things going on in Fairfield at this moment that are a million times more important.
  • A felon turning his life around is extraordinary enough for me to consider it news. Read the rest of the headlines from our county . . . so many murder trials and unsolved crimes. At least a group of citizens are trying to stop the problem at the source instead of complaining about the government not stopping all crime/curing evil or whatever the talkers expect. Good to see good people of action get some news.
