The gun toting bum's have no back bone and will get caught. The problem is you catch one welfare bum it creates several more worthless welfare bum's trying to fill the shoes. Get rid of public assisted housing and build bigger jails.

You are 110% right my friend, after Eric Conn's cases get reversed due to the wrong he was doing to win the cases you'll see a lot more people out looking for an actual job. Most of the people will be from Mud Creek, I know so many that are on welfare and disability and are more able to work than I am

You couldn't have been taught anything about economics. Public assisted housing is by far cheaper then housing people in jail. Estimates ranging to around 30k a year per person to incarcerate. News laws lessening penalties have already been enacted as the high cost of running these prisons is bankrupting the State. 1 in 92 adults are incarcerated in Ky as opposed to 1 in 100 nationally. A large number of these being nonviolent drug offenses. Ky showing numbers higher then other States not being given probation and rather being sent to prison. Which is not working and the numbers keep increasing. This war on drugs is a joke and absolutely can not be won. At least not by jailing people.

Seems to me the government "probably"spends just as much on these bums with health care,food,housing ass., and utilities. Mays as well spend 30k and keep the low life's off the streets. Not to mention the resources spent to investigate,and bring to justice.

your stats are wrong. kentucky is not incarcerating first time drug offenders. most of these people were given drug court or probation for their first offense. most decide to not attend court ordered rehab or refuse to take drug tests. so even the new house bill is not going to reduce the jail population. these people are not going to learn. you cant help them. you can only give them so many chances.
yup

When the system works then maybe but being I know someone on parole in Illinois and probation in Ky its pretty obvious the system isn't working. Or maybe I'm the only one that thinks an act that causes probation should be a violation of parole.

Not incarcerating first time drug offenders because of the new laws just passed. In the hopes of reducing prison populations. Like you, I know this won't work and will only reduce those arrested at the site. These folks will still end up in prison for failing drug tests and or quitting the sentenced programs. As the percentage of prison populations keep increasing it is causing a major financial problems for States. The only way the people or the State will ever get any relief is by dropping a lot of these laws. I hate to say drugs need to be legalized but with the high number of users and the high costs of obtaining these drugs, which is the blame for so much crime, it is seeming to be the only solution. If they could walk into a pharmacy and buy lortabs the same as aspirin they wouldn't be hurting anyone but themselves. If you take a look at Countries like Mexico and the Bahamas where codeine is over the counter, they don't have near the drug of drug offenders as we have. Exactly the opposite, nobody even buys the junk. Of course all these other Countries grow the products to manufacture drugs, but it is made for us. They don't use the drugs and just trying to make what money they can.

good point. make lortabs legal and only give people enough to prevent withdrawals. make them so cheap there is no need to steal. but suboxone and methadone have failed so what can work?

The police don't want to catch these drug dealers. I know of one who is out right beligerent about it and everyone knows he does it. Do they try to ctch him. He thinks he can't be caught. Everyone sees him selling the drugs out in the open and the police dept's don't care. Try Harold Primary care and Boldlman Church you'll see him. Bust their asses before they get their selves killed. Would love to be on Unite. I would sure do some changes. Catch them get them off the streets and make them pay for their wrong doings. One time and many of them will change their minds about their little "Jobs"

POLICE get lots of federal money for drug and DUI (McCracken Co doubles their pay checks)

if we stop the drugs the money would stop

so it's a conflict of interest for COPS to stop drugs

cops need the problem to get worse

the MEXICAN drug cartels will continue to become more powerful in the US

and the cops will say they need more and more money

it's called milking the cow
