i think they should have made him swallow it all.
I'm totally AGAINST all these plea deals.
They had this clown dead on so why make a deal ?
Let him do serious time in jail.
Lets stop this plea deal on easy to win cases.
Save the plea deal for cases where witnesses don't really want to or can't handle being in court.

Unfortunately, filling up our jails with addicts does nothing for anyone. It puts the burden on taxpayers and does nothing for the addict. We must change our systems to focus on recovery for the addict and make them able to become functioning, taxpaying, healthy citizens in the future. Anything else just continues the cycle of an addict and continues the burden on the rest of us.

i disagree it does a lot of good keeping them locked up
1 ) it keeps them from selling drugs to others
2 ) it keeps them from committing crimes such as robbing others to support their habit
3 ) it keeps them from driving and causing accidents

i'm glad to pay to keep druggies locked up

Yep, lock em up for a few months, you pay for it, then send them back out on the street to start the cycle all over again. Makes a lot of sense to me.

Well, what we know is that attitude doesn't work and does nothing to solve the problem. It is a temporary solution to a life long problem. Once they are released, and they will be released, it is back to the same old thing. Unless we address the underlying issues of addiction then addicts have no hope of living useful productive lives. Drug courts have been proven to work and should be expanded.

i think the problem is they don't serve long enough in jail nor hard enough.
give them 10 yrs of breaking rocks and they'll change their ways when they get out

prison life is now too easy for them.

Prison is no place for an addict. It's a disease that needs treatment. Prison is a place for criminals who are a danger to others, not people who are mainly a danger to themselves. Locking addicts up for 10 years does nothing to cure them of the disease. You need to do a little research before making such a sad assumption.

To answer each point you made.
Society is no place for any criminal including strung out druggies.

The treatment is drying out in prison for 10 years works every time.

Druggies do commit crimes. Such as robbery, murder, driving dangerously, selling drugs to other druggies including to children.

Locking them up does a lot of good. It keeps them away from society. It does cure them. It does stop their criminal activity.

I've done my research i suggest you do the same. Try talking to rescue squad members who had to pull out dead bodies from drug related accidents. Talk to homeowners who have been robbed by druggies looking for money to support their habits. Talk to cops who had to face down a gun held by a druggie. Talk to druggies who have quit. Almost all will tell you they quit cold sober which prison is great at.

The truth is overlooked by idiots wanting to get high and think its their body their right.
Well their rights end when it endangers others.
Druggies endanger and hurt those around them. Families, co-workers, and innocent bystanders have all been hurt by them.
Tell me one time where a druggie enriched the life of someone while they were on drugs.
Show me that news article. You can't because its never happened.

So you saying that I shouldnt be around Antioch cause I got drug/dependancy issues?
You saying I should be thrown in jail cause i can't get hold of my drug/alcohol isues?
I need more than just jail. I need help/treatment.
Plus, how am gonna support my family if i m in jail?
I still drive with my alcohol iisues and suspended licnese.I have to drive.
Now i'm paying the price for a few indescretions.
The only ones that are being hurt are my family by your attitude.

WOW you so prove my point.

You're still driving and putting others at risk even though your license has been suspended.

You want to blame me for my attitude when its YOUR ACTIONS that are hurting your family.

You are NOT getting treatment that much is obvious.

You are NOT paying the price for your actions.
Your family is paying that price.
In fact you can't even own up to the fact that YOUR actions hurt your family.

Jail is exactly where you belong before you start hurting others.
Trust me they will clean you up.

Prison doesn't fix the problem, period. You certainly haven't done any research because if you did, you would know this. I talk to your so-called "druggies" every day. Not one of them has quit "cold turkey" in prison. They have quit by intensive therapy, drug court, 12 step programs and by the grace of God. They have all had criminal pasts, and are now productive, law abiding citizens. It makes me angry to think that each one of them would be rotting in prison if you were King. But, I am happy to know that there are plenty of people in the justice system who do understand this. BTW, GregS posts are just spam, you can ignore them. It's just someone using Topix as a smear campaign against someone named Greg.

Why are you trying to insult me with the KING comment?
I don't say those kinds of comments to you.
Lets be respectful to each other.

My research was with people who really matter.
Innocent people who lives were destroyed by druggies.
Cops who had to face VIOLENT druggies.
To home owners who were robbed by druggies trying to support an ILLEGAL habit.
And finally to families who had to deal with the abuse from a druggie family member.

No they are NOT my so-called druggies.
If they were i would turn them into the police for their illegal activities.
You need to be reminded their actions are still illegal.
I save my medical sympathy for people who have real medical issues like cancer and heart disease.

As for Greg i don't know him. Never even heard of him.
He could have written under any screen name and my response would have still been the same.
I was responding only to what was being written not as for Greg as a person.

Wow, you are quite the compassionate person. I have to agree with WD. Most addicts are not violent criminals. To lump them into a category that all "druggies" are unsympathetic characters that belong in jail is a sad statement on your part. Do a little research before you become so judgemental.

i have a lot of compassion for children left behind when druggies OD.
For seniors who live on social security and find themselves pennyless when robbed by druggies.
Do i need to give you more examples of what moves me ?

Druggies lump themselves into a sad catagory not me.
They make that choice to be what they are.

Jail is the perfect place for them. They can get clean and sober there. They don't endanger anyone in there. They can learn a trade and find God there. I totally believe its a good place for them. And keep in mind its their doing that puts them there.

What a laugh about research. What is your research ? Listening to druggies ? Where is your research into those who were harmed by druggies. I guess they don't count at all to you. Who is compassionate now ?

Next time start your reaserch at the morgue when someone gets into a head-on collusion with a druggie.
