what do people expect to happen when you put hard criminals in amungst ordinary everyday people. How is this suppose to work. That could be compared to someone putting a wolf in with a flock of lamb, eventually there will be no lambs left. Two completely different kinds of people expected to live togeather. There is going to be a big clash. If Ronnie Ross actually served all of the jail time that he has been sentenced in his past, he would still be in jail today. This man has an extensive criminal record. In Ronnies own words ( well, those are the things I have been caught for ). I cant even begin to imagine what he has gotten away with. Drug dealing being one. Maby if criminals spent all of the time they are actually sentenced with in jail, instead of only a fraction of it, they would be less likely to commit a crime again. If they know they can get away with it based on personal experience , they dont think twice about doing it again. Why would the police expect people to come forward and give statements which will follow with going on the stand as a witness against the accused, when we all know that their lenient sentence will surely result in house arrest. How convient for the drug dealer who has a home based business. Then what happens to the person who had to stand against him. I shudder to think.
Yes, you shudder to think and you acknowledge that many people likely have information that would result in a longer sentence, perhaps one, which may satisfy you.Yet you use the old fear that the person will not get the time they deserve. It sounds like a vicious circle argument. You do nothing and you get nothing, you get nothing and you do less.
