There are some unsettling statements in the "Homeless man sentenced for Warrenton assault" story in the Aug. 20 edition of The Astorian.
The judge said the convicted man was "a really dangerous man" and that "it's only a matter of time until you kill someone else."
The deputy district attorney stated that "… he's going to kill somebody and that really worries me," after citing the convicted man's use of a hammer in a previous killing.
I assume the judge and the deputy district attorney both agreed to a plea bargain that reduced the original charge of attempted murder by this disturbed person to assault. What I don't understand is why.
