Galen Wallace: On the run
Police are still seeking a man they say burned the faces of two rural East Texans early Monday morning.

Harrison County sheriffs say that 39-year-old Galen Granger Wallace hurled liquid drain cleaner at a man and a woman inside a home north of Marshall. The victims told police that Wallace had been inside the home threatening them with the acidic cleaning product for some time before he carried through on his promises.

After the attack, Wallace grabbed his three-year-old son and fled into a nearby forest. At around nine this morning, Wallace delivered the toddler to his relatives and headed off for parts unknown. The victims of the attack -- Brittany Brice, 24, and Donald Salley, 21 -- were taken to a Shreveport, Louisiana, hospital.

Wallace was on six years' probation for aggravated assault stemming from an incident in 2008. He has also been convicted of assault/family violence.

Charges are pending in this case.

Okay, here's where recidivism should be considered. On average, recidivism for murder is among the lowest. Meanwhile, domestic assault, organized crime, and child abuse, (all varieties) are among the highest. If Mr. Wallace is found guilty of this alleged crime, he should receive a permanent time out.
