The U.S. prison-industrial complex encourages the passage of laws granting punitive punishment through mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines for a wide range of crimes (not only violent) and the disproportionate incarceration of minorities and the poor. At the same time it releases governmental oversight of prisons across the nation in the name of "small government" and turns them over to private corporations to run the day-to-day operations, resulting in a system that demands a constant supply of prisoners in order for these private enterprises to stay in business and make profits (more beds, same space = profits), concluding in grossly overcrowded jails and prisons. To alleviate the pressure of overpopulation and to house those who are determined to be dangerous and prone to recidivism, state parole boards are forced to release prisoners who they can claim are no longer a threat to society, very often because of declining health or advancing age.
That explanation is a little more heady than "because liberals suck", but a really simple one is "The U.S. Prison System Likes To Discharge Prisoners Who Are Older Than 70".
What's interesting is that evidently no one knows where Walker is right now. http://palmyragazette.org/ Apparently the few occasional sometime residents of Palmyra use this web site to keep in touch and the "August Front" is verrry interesting. Mentions that Walker went missing on a trip to visit family, that his email accounts have been deleted and his web site "Palmyra Mystery" is now some odd merchant site with a very bad color scheme.
Its possible that Buckerooo died and his realatives are keeping that information as quiet as possible so as to protect the grave from vandals.
His parole office would know where he went to, in death, or otherwise. They should let the public know. After all, we fed him for 22 years while he was in prison. And, just because he's 70 now doesn't mean he can't hold a gun and shoot someone.... he was a career criminal... not just a single, one time killer. And after spending 22 years in prison, he's probably just as dangerous as you might expect with a weapon in his hands.
Didn't understand your comment about the "August Front". As for his so called book, I read an excerpt from it.... it was typical jibberish from an ex-con trying to make a few bucks at the expense of the real truth. But nobody bought it is my guess. So they shut down the website.

What the F??? We're talking about MURDER, here.
Move your soapbox, mister.
They release aging prisoners with poor health so they do not have to take on the cost of treating them.
