Mahdi Hassan Ali Found Guilty

Mahdi Hassan Ali, the person most responsible for the triple slaying in Seward in January of last year, has been found guilty.  I hope that this gives the families of the victims some peace. I will continue to work on youth violence prevention policies and programs, to try to keep tragedies like this from occurring in the future.

Apparently, this young man wanted to get his car out of the impound lot, and his terrible decisions have ensured that he will spend the rest of his life in prison, in addition to ending three innocent lives. We must find a way, as a society, to intervene in the lives of young people before they come to believe that violence is a legitimate way to solve their problems.
