Our ever-expanding low and no income housing combined with treatment at the Brattleboro Retreat continues to pull a new breed of local citizen from the worst of the worst in Springfield, Holyoke, New Haven, etc.

Drug addicted felons really like that we have new clean apartments and we keep building more. They like that our court system in Vermont is lenient and does not hold people accountable. They like that drugs are plentiful.

I absolutely believe that low income housing is a crucial service, but if we keep building they will keep coming. I absolutely believe in innocent until proven guilty, but I also believe that repeat offenders need to be punished accordingly.

Vermonts problem of diminishing population will only get worse if we keep attracting non-taxpayers to burden the system further.

the baby machines are rewarded for pumping out babies with government handouts and their so called men can mooch off the system by free loading off their girls once they become low income victims with children.

The only way to break the system is to change the system and stop paying section 8 rent assistance and build dorm & barrack type places that have curfews and house rules so life ain't so confy for the girls and their so called men by putting the baby machines & their children in dorms or barracks if they break the house rules if their men don't support them without government assistance and have curfews so the girls have no life besides being mothers to their children and don't allow men to visit them and their children except during visiting hours which doesn't include going to their rooms to be alone with their visitors.

Joe how mean of you wanting these people to be responsible and pay their own way. Joe you must have a job and are selfish. How can this be?

mine, mine, all mine and I flunked sharing 101 when it only involves sharing the income, not the work load.

This piece of s**t was let out of jail because the jail couldn't give him the treatment he needed for some form of cancer he had. I believe that he is getting a free ride from the state,because he has cancer. I guess this gives him a free pass to rob, cheat, and steal from anybody. My father has had a couple bouts with cancer, one with his larynx and one with colon. He is in his early seventies and has never taken anything from anyone. (He also works two jobs). I hope the judge doesn't get played by the pity party of this guy. Let him rot there, keep the streets safe.
