New Jersey’s Revolving Door For Murderers

posted on July 27, 2016

In September 2008, Dontay Brannon was sentenced to 10 years in prison in New Jersey. The 20-year-old Gangster Killer Bloods member pled guilty to aggravated manslaughter of 21-year-old David Campbell. He had also been charged with killing another man and shooting one more—leaving him paralyzed—but those charges were dismissed in a plea bargain. 

Despite the nature of his crimes, Brannon was back on the streets well before his 10 years were up. He was released in January after serving a little more than seven years. And he quickly returned to his old ways—the convicted murderer was arrested Monday for illegally possessing firearms while on parole. Two additional loaded handguns were found at his home. 

We can only hope that this time New Jersey will put an end to the slap-on-the-wrist justice it’s been doling out to career criminals and gangbangers. The results clearly speak for themselves.
