That's not fair. I know a lot of people that have the last name of painter that are amazing people. I also know another man by the name of Matthew painter that has a heart of gold. Don't judge people because of their name!

If you think just because his name is Painter he is a no good, then you don't have much between your 2 ears but air.

It can't be their fault! Surely they have inadequate home lives, starving bellies and children to feed to cause this behavior- right? Maybe it's the poor economy thats to blame for all the downtrodden souls resorting to theft. Perhaps if we provided better drug treatment programs, given them more money for housing and food then they would'nt have to steal...much less have to steal on at least two other times in the past (hence the third offense charge). We should be ashamed of ourselves for not providing them with more!
Or we can stop making excuses for these useless slugs and put some teeth back in our justice system. Now theres a novel concept...lets enforce the laws as they were intended- treating criminal sentences as punishment rather than a chance to nuture these poor souls back into the bosom of love.

I like this, and would add......I whole heartedly support making big rocks into little rocks while they are in the slammer. This will probably be the only work other than thievery these guys will ever know. LOCK them UP and give them a hammer and a pile of stones. Make it tougher on the inside than it is on the outside. These guys make a life out of stealing because they know when they are in jail they can sleep in, and be feed three hot meals a day. Stop the madness, break out the peanut butter and jelly, and cereal. Make jail punishment.

its amazing how people judge somebody. no by no means what Matthew did is right but he has a major drug addiction and did what he felt was right to support his habit. the sad thing is there is legal drugs that u can buy in area stores named Timmy Dos, BP near taco bell and Sunaco to name a few that u can buy legal drugs at...bath salt they call it which is worse that crank or ice and legal weed so they need to work on getting that out of stores because you dont have a clue what others are doing to get money so they can buy drugs weither its legal or illegal that arent getting caught at it!

my point in this whole thing is dont run your mouth or judge somebody until u have been a drug addict or a family memeber of a drug addict and have to deal with this, its not an easy thing! pray that he can get the help he needs and get better!

ALSO WORK ON GETN THE LEGAL DRUGS OUT OF STORES DUE TO MORE PPL ARE DOING THOSE CUZ IT CAN BE BOUGHT AND ITS NOT AGAINST THE LAW!!!

jail is no place for an addict, u can get just as much drugs in there than u can on the streets. whats need is some intense rehab, the legal store bought drugs are just as addicting as illegal drugs! so dont run your mouth or judge them till you have been in that postion or had to deal as a family memeber (as i said already) we hurt to as family!

also look at the pics of the matthew painter who did the murder he looks nothing like the matthew here! and just cuz he is a Painter doesnt make him a bad person, Matt is an awesome person that has a major addiction which is ruining his life, pray the guy gets help and can be live a normal drug free life!

It is easy to judge a guy that steals a lawn mower.

I agree with you, but I also find your post leaves me asking, "why?". Waynesboro used to be a factory town, where generation after generation went into the DuPont plant to mindlessly place a bolt in a widget until they became disabled from repetitive movement or chemical poisoning. Now there is no opportunity for the peasants to acquire a paycheck for a simple task, so they see no alternative except to join the news accounts of stupid criminals getting caught. At least these two weren't dealing meth or shooting people. I am not making excuses or condoning there actions, just analyzing a possible "why?".

Matt has always been a good guy apparently he has a problem so rather then to throw him back in jail lets get him help. Im not saying that he shouldn't do the time but while doing it he should get the help he deserves. I think anyone with a problem should get help no matter what kind they need while serving their time. Lets not write them off as "bad" people when they have a problem that with proper help, supervision and caring can be fixed.

. It is not up to the courts or jails to provide rehabilitation services for drug attics. Jails are for confinement and punishment for committing a crime. It is the responsibility of one’s self to seek help if he has a problem. If the problem is so great he can’t seek help then family and friends have a responsibility to offer help or have him committed to get the help he needs. Oh, that means someone other than the tax payer is going to have to foot the bill. I say give him hard time to serve in jail, make it so he doesn’t want to go back to jail and garnish his wages to pay for the time in jail when he gets out. This is a win/win for everyone. The tax payer doesn’t foot the bill for irresponsible choices of the criminal/addict; the criminal/addict learns a tough lesson and has to work toward sobriety. You say get rid of drugs and that will solve the problem. No make it tough on the users so they don’t want or crave to drugs. If they quit buying then the market goes away. It is all about supply and demand, if the demand goes away there is no need for the supply.
So this guy who was so desperate for a fix he stole a push mower is supposed to summon the personal and economic resources to get real rehabilitative treatment? The fact is, punitive enforcement of drug laws has been a failure. There are still addicts stealing to get their next fix. Many would gladly accept a 30 day stay in a rehab, but that is not an option for anyone except the very rich because the U.S.A.(land of the free my donkey) prioritizes building jails and hiring prison guards over funding rehab and hiring drug rehabilitation specialists. According to the charges against these two, they did not commit acts of violence in pursuit of their fix, so community supervision, random drug testing, and completing rehabilitation and community service requirements would seem a reasonable option. If they get hard time in jail, they will no doubt find a drug supplier and come out of jail beholden to the gang that supplier represents. Maybe when they get out, still addicted, the gangsters will set them up with a gun and a corner to work.

The problem is there is a large sector of the population that does divide us into "good people" who can do no wrong and "bad people" who can do no good. "You are either with us or against us" George Bush represented this sentiment, and now we have a wrecked economy, hopeless military quagmire, and a president who seems more loyal to his Kenyan ancestors than our British allies and who has expressed anti-American sentiment in his writings, choice of church affiliation, diplomatic contacts, cabinet appointments, etc. The war on drugs isn't making any more progress than the war in Iraq or Afghanistan, with violence, corruption, fanaticism, and lawlessness increasing on all of these fronts. If there is any help available for drug addicts in the state prison system that would be news to me.

Why is it so hard for this freaking country to learn and take advantage of ideas and programs developed by other nations to deal with these problems. Of course I know the answer but its a waste of time spelling it out here. Heaven forbid society should see ourselves as WE instead of us and them.
