        If you haven’t read the news article about the criminal history of the human trash that killed Aaron, it’s jaw-dropping. He pleaded guilty to two other instances of armed robbery, both involving false ads for buying/selling cellphones. He was also arrested after being in a stolen vehicle that fled from the police, and when the vehicle was searched there was a stolen gun that had been used in a homicide in Millcreek a few days prior. He had ammunition for that gun in his pocket, although he’s not a suspect in that murder. He’s also been arrested several times for other misdemeanors, such as shoplifting. In several of the cases, he gave false information (his cousin’s name) to the police. 

        In each of these cases, he plead down to a reduced charge and was never actually sent to jail/prison for any appreciable amount of time; usually being placed on probation with credit for time served.

        How in the hell is a guy like this out on the street? If he was in prison, where he belongs, Aaron is still alive today. Plain and simple. If I was a member of Lowe’s family, I’d be furious. I’d be shouting from the rooftops for the resignation of the sheriff, DA, and judge that let this happen.

        The way they describe how he walked up to Aaron and his girlfriend after shooting them, and then fired more rounds is disturbing. He’s a psychopath. He does not feel remorse and does not value human life. I’m not sure how you’re supposed to rehabilitate that.

          Rehabilitation is a joke. Prison is college for career criminals to hone their craft. Buk Buk needs to be put away for the rest of his life. Hopefully it’s short.

            I wouldn’t say rehab is a joke per se, rehabilitation can happen. The problem as I see it is with how our society goes about trying to rehab people. You are absolutely correct that Prison is a college for career criminals.  Prison reform needed to happen yesterday and, IMO, it needs to include Prison only being for violent criminals and while in prison there should be mandated skills training and general education. It should almost be treated like a compulsory community college.

              I guarantee you prison doesn’t scare him nor does dying in the street full of bullet holes.

              These type of sociopaths don’t value life not even there own so you can’t scare them straight with the idea of prison or death.

              That’s why it’s so easy for them to kill in cold blood. They have no conscience what so ever.

              You could call it mental Illness or the fact he was raise in a violent country where killing was common and he became desensitized to it.

              I don’t believe he can be rehabilitated. He’s a lost soul just lock him up and throw away the key.

              There once was a time when they were forced to work, like in Cool Hand Luke, but I guess now working is cruel and unusual punishment.

                Easier to control and keep board members / investors happy putting people in cages.

                  Privatized prisons should absolutely be banned. I’m a capitalist at heart, but there are certain things where trying to cut as much cost as possible is highly detrimental and this is one of them.

                    100% agree.  I invest pretty broadly in the market and private prisons is one place I won’t put my money no matter what the dividends or capital gains are.  No only does putting quotas on human life dehumanizes our legal system and incentives recidivism.  Offenders are dollar bills.

                      We fought a war for it during the pre-existence for Chrisakes.

        There are way too many stories like this that are so sad. Baffles me why these judges and DAs are not held accontable for failing the community that supports their pay check. 

        There’s always the excuse you hear, “the US judicial system is not perfect, but it’s the best out there”, bunch of BS. I know the UofU is too chicken s**t to do it, but would be a nice effort for the U to call out the judge’s specifically by name who let this criminal back on the street. What did they think was going to happen. 

        So disheartening when a system paid by the citizens to protect the citizens fails the citizens. A beuatiful life was ruined and many others are suffering because of a failed system with no accountability. Same goes for the woman invloved who’s life is damaged forever. So frustrating for the law enforcement as well, has to be a major job disatisfier to see these same criminals cycle back on the streets terroizing the community.

          Unfortunately judges and DA’s have immunity. If they let a habitual drunk driver off with a slap on the wrist and they finally end up killing someone, they can’t be sued. Same as this case. Even if the Lowe family, or the young lady wanted to sue them, they couldn’t.

        I hope death row is absolutely miserable for him for the next 30 or so years.

        Ya, it feels like getting punched in the face right after the gut punch of A Lowe’s murder.  Hopefully justice for A Lowe will mean those who let this pyscho loose time and again at the very least are out of a job.  It is sad to think how many people are killed or seriously hurt by criminals who have been caught and are free to walk within hours or days.

        His previous booking records indicate he isn’t a U.S. citizen, but is Sudanese. The failure to deport a criminal led to this tragedy. I’m sure glad we virtue signaled and welcomed refugees.

          Speaking of virtue signaling… why doesn’t BLM care about Aaron Lowe’s death? Do black lives only matter when killed by a white police officer? Nevermind all the black lives that are lost due to less pro-active policing and understaffed police departments, a direct result of the agenda pushed by that group. 

          If you wonder why judges and DAs sometimes don’t push certain punishments for certain people, look no further than the trendy social movements of our time. There is a huge push to let criminals off easy – especially if they look a certain way (google the DA in Los Angeles or San Francisco for starters). This is said openly. They feel a need to overcompensate for systemic racism. Consequences be damned. 

          Note that SLC’s mayor, in response to the Aaron Lowe murder, stated that the city is severly understaffed in the police department and is struggling to find recruits. Clearly no one could have predicted that mottos such as “all cops are bastards” might have that effect. Demonizing an entire profession coudl never have negative consequences. Keep in mind, the cops were called to the house party where Aaron Lowe was murdered hours before the murder occurred (originally for a noise complaint). But they had to prioritize the calls, so did not get there sooner.

          I am sorry – but I am so fed up with disengenuous discourse of so many virtue-signalers. There are very real consequences to doing away with the rule of law and demonizing those that are hired to enforce it.

          Deporting a problem to another place doesn’t eliminate tragedies from happening as a result of that problem. If we had deported him somewhere else, then someone else would have been killed. That isn’t any better. He needed to be kept from hurting all other people, not just people in our country.

            I don’t care if he kills someone in Sudan. I do care if he kills someone closer to me, or anybody from one of my tribes (my country, my state, my city, my school, etc). We let him in because we believed that he would strengthen us. Clearly that wasn’t the case.

            If he isn’t one of us, he isn’t our problem. Once he committed his first crime, we should have sent him home, and AL would be alive. But, since he killed here, a needle or a firing squad is about the only way to provide justice.
