    Now! I have helped babysit this creep in our Mn prison system (Guard)And For killing “MURDERING” Our county officer Deputy Michael William Morrow, This clown ONLY spent 14 years behind bars cattered to by the state of Mn. what a shame, these guys don’t change at all,they just learn how to use the system
    The funny thing is THEY prisoners have more rights than we the hard working class, law following respecting folks do!
    I REALLY think with todays violent crimes, We needed the DEATH PENALTY about 17 or 18 years ago,I’ll bet our prisons today would not be over populated and gang affilitation would be low…. You see I had lost a good freind of mine at the pizza shack in south mpls, Traffic Officer Jerry Hoff 6 months from his retirement, by a low life gang members and the loser who put out the hit on Ofc. J. Hoff was out in 12 years. I did not know Deputy Michael William Morrow but, I do know that I feel the same about the loss of Deputy Morrow as I did in Mpls in Sept 1990 with the loss of my freind…..GOD! PROTECT AND LOOK OVER OUR OFFICERS ALL OVER OUR COUNTRY AND THEIR FAMILYS AND LOOK OVER OUR FALLEN FREINDS….

    michael is my grandfather and is the greatest man that ever lived. my family was robbed of a life with him and suffered so much loss. Scott Lange should have rotted in prison got what he did. MN failed to serve justice to my family and most of all failed my grandfather. My grandfather was the most honest, caring, loving man and he was stolen from us. Scott is a filthy piece of trash!!

    Morrow-I am so sorry for your lost. Yes, he should have rotted in prison-or better yet, sentenced to death. I agree with the death penalty but it should be swift and timely. RIP to our fallen officers.

    Our justice system has failed us.
