On Jan 3, Kentucky will release about 1,000 "non violent" criminals, and in a bill that has been passed will fail to jail some future "non-violent" offenders. This means all drug dealers and thieves now have the expressed written consent of the State Attorney Generals Office to continue to sell drugs to your children, break into your cars and homes, and scam money from the elderly. Please remember this at the next election and vote out the governor and all associated with this madness.

That sounds nice for your crusade I suppose,,,but that's actually far from accurate.As a matter of fact,the bill only releases a very small number of trivial offenders who have "already" served jail-time for the most minor of offenses.Meaning that it changes absolutely nothing on the front-end of the system where criminals are incarcerated and filtered through to evaluate their danger level.
Also meaning that when the criminal element sells drugs to children,breaks into your home or car,or scams money from the elderly,,,they're still processed in a judicial fashion.And still go jail.
Also,the list of people who qualify for early release are usually people who's laying in for trivial offenses such as child-support,cold-checks or shoplifting.In other words,,,"it applies to the people who don't belong in jail for any longer than two days anyway".
In short,,,this bill not only doesn't create any problems at all,,,it also prevents some very large problems with housing.As a matter of fact,if you're the kind of person that you sound like,,,then the alternative of pilfering more of your tax dollars to build more detention centers would only upset you more.So,,,calm down a little bit and think it through.

A bum who "knocks someone up" as you say,(an occurrence that I seriously doubt has happened to you either),would actually be considered a violent offender,,,and very likely wouldn't meet the criteria for an early release.
Any proprietors who may find themselves in possession of cold checks,,,actually has legal remedies and promising avenues for reimbursement within the civil court,(a luxury that isn't afforded to victims from the criminal court).
And if a person is up for early release because he got caught shop-lifting a candy bar out of a convenience-store,,,then that means he's already been arrested,charged,booked,and thrown in with the animals.Meaning that justice has already pretty much been served,,,even with an early release.
Or is it your opinion,,,that it would be wiser to spend billions of dollars for the necessary facilities to house those trivial offenders for the full ten-days that the law-requires???

There was one example of a 27 year old convicted drug dealer who is hoping to be on that list for early release as well as others. This is just not for cold check writers and non support payees. Don't drink the kool aid - this is a sign of more things to come against the law abiding citizens of Kentucky and other states as well.

I am just guessing, but I believe the term "knocked up" is in reference to getting pregnant. And if someone does get "knocked up" by some bum, then the little slut deserves what comes to her! Keep your knees together and teach your children not to spread them for just anyone, and that problem will solve itself.

Cold check less than $200 is NOT a felon, neither is being a few months behind in child support. Are you talking about real felons or misdemeanors?

Hmmm.To that,I would have to ask if "he" was inferring a rape,,,or just making reference to lazy guys who are in the habit of making babies,,,and then making trax.
If it's the latter,,,then I guess I would have to agree with you.
