An average of five children die every day in our nation as a result of abuse and neglect, 80% of them are under 4 years old.
■In 2008, there were more than 700,000 children who were abused or neglected.
■A child is abused or neglected every 45 seconds.
■3% of sexual abuse perpetrators were parents, 75% were friends or relatives.(wonder if having 10 or more adults in a house, on a rotatin basis is a good thing for kids? That's what we see with the drug houses here.)

■In Montague county
1 out of every 55
children are confirmed victims of abuse or neglect

■In Clay county 1 out of every 77 children are confirmed victims of abuse or neglectIn
■Archer county 1 out of every 370 children are confirmed victims of abuse or neglect

Most studies report that between one-third and two-thirds of substantiated child abuse and neglect reports involve substance abuse.....substance abuse prevalence has been found to be greater the "deeper" into the system one looks...some studies indicate even higher numbers - as high as 90%.

It's estimated that 25 - 40 percent of all patients in U.S. hospital beds are being treated for alcohol-related problems(The Marin Institute) Substance abuse in general, including productivity and health- and crime-related costs, exceed $600 billion annually in the US.

Exasperating and disgusting. Alanon won't change that.

Clean and Sober - I think you're incapable of understanding. Addicts are con artists, liars theives, not normal - need I go on? Some of us have kids and we have to live with the squalor they create. You're in denial.

These "fears" are REAL. Valid. Justified. Should I make of list of break in attempts? Animals and kids hurt/abused? Killed? Does Alanon cure people of common sense? That's what it seems like you're suggesting. Maybe you really don't get it.

These addicts aren't my FRIENDS or my FAMILY - just a plague in our neighborhood. I'll study the stats on child abuse and donate to people that help these kids, but don't expect to see me spending time at Alanon.

The addicts can help themselves - I'll help people that will help themselves and actually can be helped.

Don't blame us for being skeptics...we'll just wait and see. Again.

For someone that claims to have been involved in the addiction field you seem pretty ignorant but perhaps I can enlighten you. Alanon is for family members friends relatives and anyone else affected by the actions of alcoholics and addicts. As you stated these addicts are not your family or friends but they seem to be causing you some fear and anger. Alanon will help you deal with that.

For the record you are the first person I have ever met that alcohol or drug abuse has not played a part in their family or circle of friends and I have been around a good long while myself.

I am a recovering drug addict. I am not a con artist, liar or thief and I am not blaming you or anyone for being skeptical. Im just suggesting you get some help for yourself and save the hammer and nails until this person that this thread is attacking pisses dirty. When or "If" he does I will hand you the nails.

CnS - never said I worked in the "addiction field". I said I did "drug testing".

It's just too much - you think people need to go to ALANON to get help "accepting" substances? Are you serious? Nobody owes a user anything - you get the respect you deserve. There are no hammer and nails except the ones you are imagining.

I find it hard to believe that any addict was honest and not stealing and sneaking - so guess we're even.

Look up pathalogical lying - you'll find substance abuse there - look up drug use, you'll find those are text book symptoms.

Flatfoot - you are so right. I meant to answer you, but was wasting my time arguing. Sorry.

I was trying to remember also. So I looked it up. Looks like arrested on '03 and sentenced in '04 to 99 years. Served 8-9 years. Seems a little light. Hope it was long enough to make him want to tow the line. I did see where in 2006 he appealed the 99 year sentence as cruel and unusual punishment, but didn't get any where.

It's cruel and unusual punishment for the citizens of Texas for him to be out and free after only 9 years when the jury gave him a sentence of 99 years! That is what's cruel and unusual!

I think any dealer/user is punishment for other people to be around. I hate to see what will happen as more and more of crap becomes less criminalized.

I think that the message it will send around here - if he is back out already - is that law enforcement/prison isn't going to deal with you that harshly anyhow, so you might as well go back to cooking what you want if 99 really only equals 9 years.

Guess what folks. People can change. Caswell is one of the nicest people I know. Known him for a long long time. I am his ex mother-in-law. I used to live in Bowie. There are so many narrow minded judgemental citizens in Bowie. They don't know all the facts. If they don't know, they make them up...I know...been there done that. Some folks there need to go to church and learn how to forgive and forget and move on. Bet the judgemental people have skeletons in their closets.

The fact remains that he was sentenced to 99 years, and that is what he should have served and not be walking the streets free as a bird after only serving 9 years. Facts are facts. He was a repeat offender, time after time for having meth labs and intent to sell. Those crimes hurt our families and our communites with lasting damage. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime. I bet people would say killers on death row are nice people too, but that doesn't mean they deserve to be set free. There are consequences to your actions, and as far as I am concerned James got off easy. If I was on that jury and gave him the maximum sentence of 99 years, I would expect him to be locked up for good. Not out in 9 years! Montague County is Meth Capital USA and here one of the biggest cooks and dealers walks out of prison from a 99 year sentence after less than 10 years, that is really going to set an example for future meth head cooks and dealers now isn't it?!?!?!?!

Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the midst of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves Matt. 10:6 you shall know them by their fruit (Matt. 7:16) The spiritual person judges all things Corinthians 2:15 For though absent in body, I am present in spirit; and as if present, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who did such a thing. 1 Corinthians 5:3 Nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Cor. 6:10For if we go on sinning deliberately after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, Hebrews 10:26
