Aaron Cole is the poster boy for using the death penalty. Killing murderers like him saves innocent lives.  Some people just cannot be saved. I don’t believe the death penalty is a deterrent. The death penalty is justice for the victims, and it protects the community from very evil people. Had Cole been executed in Texas, Dominique Lucas, 30, would be alive today. It’s simple math.

Everyone should watch the Netflix series, “I Am a Killer.” Listen to these killers in their own words. While some of the killers seem remorseful, but most talk obsessively about themselves and their childhoods without making any real mention of their victims.

The problem with life in prison is there’s always the risk of some jerk like Gov. Newson coming along and releasing them.

Aaron Cole, 59, served 23 years in a Texas prison for killing a man in 1995. According to public records, Texas police arrested Cole on a charge of second-degree murder. Cole pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Cole was released in 2017.

Fast forward to Feb. 16, when Las Vegas Metro Police arrested Cole for assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of carrying a concealed weapon after Cole allegedly threatened a person on a RTC bus with a knife, according to records. BTW, Cole killed his first victim in Texas with a knife.

On Feb. 22, Judge Joseph Sciscento released Cole on $3,000 bail, ordering Cole not to have any contact with the victim. It’s not confirmed if the judge knew about Cole’s prior murder conviction.

Three days later, Cole was arrested for killing another man on an RTC bus with a knife. The stabbing victim, was identified as Dominique Lucas, 30, police said.

Former Sheriff and current Governor Lombardo ran on a platform of criminal justice reform. But Dems have blocked any effort to reform bail laws in the state legislature this session. This session will be an indication of how much political capital Gov. Lombardo is willing to expend to reform our broken criminal injustice system.
