Three strikes laws

California has a three strikes law (which bears no resemblance to the left-wing media propaganda). I think a recent shooting in New York shows the relevance of three strikes. A man ran in traffic, like he wanted to get run over. The police arrived and shot him after, it was claimed, he made a motion like he was reaching for a gun. Two innocent bystanders were hit.

Here are the details of the man's rap sheet, from Reuters:
    Broadnax has been jailed at least 13 times on 23 arrests since 1995, charged with crimes ranging from felony assault and robbery to marijuana possession and turnstile jumping, Duffy said.
If there was ever a poster boy for three strikes, it's this guy. New York should emulate California.
