What is most crazy is that people want the 3 strikes enforced, but want to let the people on the third strike to get away with anything other than murder. How about the people with 1 or 2 strikes try NOT COMMITING CRIMES ANY MORE??????? Why isn't 1-2 convictions of ANYTHING treated as OK?? That's just insane. Those first 1-2 strikes only come AFTER a bunch of other probation offenses, so it's usually more like 4-5 strikes when they are actually put away. How many crimes have YOU been convicted of???
