Police Questioning Man for One Murder Find Another Woman Stabbed on His Bed

OMG 14

Lucius CrawfordLucius Crawford is a man from New York with a rap sheet a mile long for his many and varied crimes against women. Two days ago, police went to his home to question the parolee about an unsolved murder from 1993 and they found another woman stabbed nine times in the chest under a sheet on his bed. Sorry, but you think you MIGHT have arrived a little sooner?

I am not necessarily blaming the police for not nabbing this guy earlier in the 1993 murder. It was DNA evidence that finally linked him as a suspect. But I am saying that he never should have been out in the first place. Sure, he hasn't been convicted yet, but a stabbed woman on your bed and two OTHER confessions to murders in 1993 are pretty damning.

And that's not even counting what he HAS been convicted for. Let's run through it, shall we?

  • In 1973, he served three years for stabbing a woman.
  • In 1977, he got 24 years in prison for stabbing five young women.
  • In 1991, just after he was out, he got 184 days MORE days in jail for assaulting an ex-girlfriend.
  • He went on parole five years ago after serving 13 years in prison for stabbing his 31-year-old co-worker 13 times.

I am sorry, but what the HELL was this man doing out of prison? What does he have to do to prove he is a complete menace to society?

Most of the time, I believe in our justice system and I believe it's the best possible way to protect people and give us our rights. Even criminals and alleged criminals should have some rights. But the idea that a man THIS violent was allowed on the streets is pretty disconcerting.

Obviously, he is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law whether he confessed or not, but we really need to get better in this country about repeat offenders. A person with a rap sheet like this shouldn't have been able to remove his ankle bracelet and violate his parole. That means innocent people potentially die.

Maybe I am naive, but I guess I thought criminals THIS violent stayed locked up. If stabbing this many women, repeatedly, every time you are released from prison isn't enough to keep you in prison for life, what is?

My heart goes out to the families of the three women he allegedly murdered. I can't even imagine the fury and anger that would come from knowing a man like this was allowed to stay on the streets.

Do you think he should have been in prison for life already?

Frankly, I don't want to support crap like this in the prison system. Life in prison? No. Fry his ass.

Ill say it again.... the death penalty needs an express lane. He will NEVER be rehabilitated. Waste of taxpayer dollars and perfectly good oxygen.

Why in the hell would a woman get with a guy that has been to jail for a violent crime? He needed mental help from the first stabbing. All prisoners need therapy...

I agree whole-heartedly with the first two posters. He has shown us time and time again that these stabbing were not a lapse in judgement that he feels remorse for. That he will commit violent acts every single chance he gets. Shoot him up with a needle & be done with it.

I think our judicial system is a joke. Everyone gets too many chances and rarely serves an entire sentence. Therapy is bullshit for 99% of these people. I think if you repeat offend then you're basically telling the world that you're useless and cant serve a purpose in society. Get them off the planet for the good of society!

If the state is worried about costs, I'll gladly donate the 50 cents it takes to get a bullet and remove this scum from existence.

For those of you in favor of putting him to death, please understand that reincarnation is real and that people don't suddenly become more enlightened once they die. Often someone who's a murderer in one lifetime is a murderer in their next lifetime. Until they receive the treatment that they need (or they figure out on their own how to become more compassionate, empathetic, etc.) they will likely continue to cause pain and suffering to others in the future.

It is selfish to simply put a criminal to death and it helps nobody.

ok eupeptic....take him home with you and you foot the bill for his existence in this life.

@eupeptic - and yet you are implying it wasn't selfish of him to randomly stab women and take them from their families? i'm sorry, but i have no sympathy for this man, and i don't believe in reincarnation. 

they should throw him in the yard with the lifers and let them stab him as many times as he stabbed all those women. is it humane? no. is it cruel? sure. did he care about either of these things as he murdered women in cold blood? NO.

@Erin ahahaha! For people that don't believe in the death penalty I agree take him home with you (or foot his expenses while he's locked up). He's going to have better healthcare tthan I am! I think if he's repeatedly been charged with stabbing people he should have never gotten out. Our judicial system disgusts me
