Career Criminal Kills 80 Year Old Widowed Grandma
Some people just can't handle being part of civil society. Texas repeat offender Randy Lewis should never have been released. He is a shining example showing the need for a three-strike law. He has been arrested and imprisoned numerous times and still found his way to kill a grandma over her car. She would have given him the car and whatever else. She was just out getting her medicine.
"Rosalie Cook, who lived alone in Houston, Texas, was fatally stabbed in the chest on Saturday after picking up a prescription from her neighborhood Walgreens near Braeswood Boulevard.
Attacker Randy Lewis, 38, approached the grandmother as she reached her car, stabbing her in the chest before rifling through her possessions and attempting to take the vehicle.
A police officer quickly responded to the scene, firing two fatal shots at Lewis when he emerged from Ms Cook's car and attempted to stab him with a knife. "
“What makes me angry is this suspect stabbed an 80-year-old woman then goes down, rifles through her stuff and tries to steal her car,” said Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo. "
“This is tragic, but the most tragedy here is that a woman has died from a guy who attacked her for no other reason other than to steal from her and carjack her,” Acevedo said."
"The victim, who leaves behind children and grandchildren around the state, died after she was taken to the hospital."

"Two years ago, Lewis was charged with assaulting a public servant -- breaking the person’s nose -- while being transferred to county jail, KHOU reported. In all, he had been arrested 67 times and has faced dozens of charges throughout his life, including assault, theft, trespassing, the possession of marijuana and burglary of a vehicle, the Houston Police Officers’ Union said.
“Randy Lewis should never have been free. Now an innocent woman has been murdered. Everyone deserves better. This is absolutely shameful,” the Houston Police Officers' Union tweeted Monday, sharing his public record."
I whole-heartedly agree they should have never released Lewis. It speaks volumes about how our justice system is not doing enough.
