Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

The Kansas legislature wants to soften a law that allows criminals to be sentenced to 50 years without a parole hearing.   Apparently the people of Kansas want to lighten up on their treatment of the most heinous criminals.    

Have Liberals been making inroads in the Kansas legislature?

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

It makes you wonder, who are these Criminals who could be helped?    Some hapless well intentioned person or persons must have been accidentally caught up in this law intended to be used only against the really bad guys.

Maybe somebody who only killed an abortion doctor?

This is the description attached to a photo in the article:

Scott Roeder is led from the courtroom after he was given the Hard 50 prison sentence by Sedgwick County District Court Judge Warren Wilbert in 2010. Roeder was convicted of killing Dr. George Tiller.
What level of depravity must be in the hearts of these Kansans to change a law like this in order to lighten the sentence on one killer of an abortion doctor?
