Absolutely. If you're convicted of that kind of crime you have no right to expect not to spend the rest of your life under a government microscope. Circumstances should be considered, of course... But his circumstances are pretty clear. He self-evidently has no remorse or intention to make good.
I hope they catch him before he hurts anyone else. And when they do I hope that this time they forget where they put the keys rather than where they put the psycho.
