Carl Reimer was killed because of the drug trade thrives on the fact that they are illegal.

Think back to high school, it was waaaaay easier to buy a sack of weed than it was to buy a six pack. Think about that.

Emily Hagen used to be a world-class swimmer/triathelete who some years ago was voted female California Lifeguard of the Year. This is the tragedy of meth at work.

DAD WRITES: "We are having the deadliest year in a decade because of drug related killings and you are promoting drug use?"
BECKY: I'm promoting common sense. The "drug war" is bankrupt. It has hurt far more people than it has saved. It has wasted public resources with expensive prosecutions for possession of substances that are less lethal than half the things under my kitchen sink.
Yes bust meth labs in neighborhoods! They are major fire hazards. YES, bust addicts when they commit burglaries to support their habit. but most illegal drugs have positive uses as well. I mentioned cocaine as a useful pharmaceutical in dental surgery. Is that "promoting drug use?"
Is coffee okay with you DAD?
It's not like you're going to rail against Pfizer, Merck, AstraZenica, Novartis, or Glaxo-Smith-Klein no matter how many dead bodies their products produce, are you DAD?

you know i have yet to meet an honest person. Do you bolt through yellow lights. Come to a stop in a cross walk, use your cell phone while driving. If you stop and think I bet you honest people violate some law or two every day. But then those laws aren't meant for you. I know how it works and you honest people disgust me. Because you feel that certain laws do not pertain to you. Until you can say you went through a month with out violating a law then don't speak to the point of being honest what you are really being, is facist. This country is built on the theroy of equal justice for all. Not it's allright this time or that violation doesn't hurt anyone. That is BS and you raise your children believeing the BS> at leastpeople like John Valley are willing to suffer the consequences for their actions and not say that law if for you and not for me. Those who hide behind statments like honest people are not better then the congressman who talks bad about drug dealers and then takes bribes from pharmacutiacal companies. Live honestl before speak to being honest.

We need to legalize meth for recreational use!

This drug simply makes people work harder(ie truck drivers) and there is no reason to waste resources on arresting and jailing people for staying awake for 2-3 days at a time.

Legalize meth for recreation! November ballot!

I'm with Jeffrey; I see no difference between driving while using a cell phone, and cooking/distributing meth, armed and whacked out in a family neighborhood.
I also agree with Dr. Newell when he rightly states that those who would argue in favor of a modicum of public morality are, indeed, fascists.
I would, however, caution that the aforementioned learned commentator recognize that the term "honest" is understood to apply to he who endeavors to live honorably.
Who is more honorable, and therefore dignified to speak of morality? The harried driver who speeds up to make a yellow light, or the maggot who avoids work and taxation through addicting teenaged girls to deadly "dope"? I, for one, can't answer; just today I parked 20 inches from the curb.

Obviously you have not been harassed or threatened by crazy meth heads. You would sing a different tune if your life was negatively being impacted by drug addicts.
Living at Mission Gardens Apartments managed by the incompetent and corrupt John Stewart Company (Keri Swenson, Regional Manager and Mari Tustin, Sr. VP) where Carl Reimer was murdered has changed by views.
I used to be for legalizing all drugs. Now I am definitely against meth, crank, crack, heroin, PCP, and any other drug that causes psychosis or paranoia or aggressive behavior. I am sitting on the fence about pot right now.
i used to be all for legalizing drugs. i think the "war on drugs" is a failure. however, like you, seeing aggressive, paranoid meth tweakers and pot heads has changed my thinking. there will always be people who mixed with drugs turn from dr jekylls into mr hydes. these people have psychological and biological tendencies towards violence and mayhem. add just about any drug -- alcohol included -- and you've got major trouble.

i abhor fascist prohibitionists, but drugs and alcohol are bad news for a large segment of the american population. europeans -- take the dutch for example -- don't seem to have these same problems with drugs and alcohol.

you again! you must be baiting everyone. meth is one of the most dangerous drugs available on the street. it causes aggression, paranoia, delusional thinking, sexual deviance, and rots away the bodies and brains of meth addicts. moreover, meth is one of the drugs most often associated with crime. see the Sentinel news article about the "Freezer burglar put on ice." meth got gangs to kill Carl Reimer at the Mission Gardens Apartments managed by The John Stewart Company. it killed him.

you have to be kidding everyone. now reboot.

The sad thing is that they are arrested and then let right back out. Not good for the town or for the addict. Jail time and drug rehab should be mandatory. They won't quit on their own.

I WANT TO CLARIFY, for those who are not familiar with the situation at the Mission Gardens Apartments -- managed by The John Stewart Company. the haters at Mission Gardens TARGET ANYONE WHO THEY PERCEIVE TO BE LGBT: it doesn't matter whether you are actually LGBT or not. they will threaten you, spew hate filled language at you, accuse you of abominable acts, and try to run you out of Mission Gardens JUST BECAUSE THEY BELIEVE YOU ARE LGBT.

MOREOVER, THEIR HATE IS FUELED BY METH AND ALCOHOL. never legalize meth. never ...

this is what is even more scary than other places. just because one of these haters gets it in their head that you are LGBT, they will go out to annihilate you. this is what happened to me. it could happen to anyone. to anyone.

SCARY BUT TRUE.

Still crazy after all these years, John! But you're still living there after they accused you of being a child molester, illegally videotaping and recording the neighbors and peeping in their windows. YOU should still be in jail, bonding with Bubba.
