COLUMBIA — Columbia Police arrested Jerry Goldman, 30, after a short foot pursuit ending at Fourth and Pecan streets at 1 a.m. Thursday.

A felon with a handgun....or 4 of them, to be exact.

With more charges to come.

Up the river you must go, you must go, you must go....

"Life" comes to mind, if found guilty.

With no parole.

This is the type of thing for which I'd vote for increased taxes. I like the idea of deciding that folks like this have lost the right to live among us with me helping to pay for their permanent separation. I would want him productive in prison, tho. Making pebbles comes to mind...wouldn't want him TOO comfortable with all those TVs and video games.
