46 yr old Man arrested 190 times! What’s wrong with the system.

An article at UPI.com has a write up about a 46 yr old man, who was recently arrested for carjacking in Boca Raton, FL. He lives in West Palm Beach and has a taste for the Boca lifestyle. His life of crime started at an early age, where is first arrest came at the age of 20. He has been arrested in 12 Florida counties. Sandra Boonenberg, a spokesperson for the Police Department has been quoted as saying “Pretty much everyone who works the road has dealt with him before. He’s one of our regulars.”

I need a minute to grasp this. This guy has been arrested 190 times. The man has achieved triple digit status. He’s on his way to making 200 if he keeps this up. If he was first arrest at age 20, and he’s now 46, and he’s accumulated 190 arrests, that puts him at about 7.3 arrests per year. How short are his jail times to even allow him the time to be arrested 7.3 times per year? That’s insane.
