Muhammad should have been in jail

Why was Malik Muhammad let out of jail in April 2008? (“Man tortured with hot iron, robbed at gunpoint in Cedar Rapids hotel meetup, police say,” March 7.) He is and was then a criminal and had committed a felony. Then, in January 2019, he committed another, more heinous felony.

I realize our jail is most likely full 99 percent of the time, but tell that to the man who was tortured.
