Yea they do. Its good work by the police though. People need to understand that these crackhead junkies, end up flooding ERs', the mental health system, and of course everyone's favorite...... the welfare system. see its simple, party your life away (never obtaining any marketable skill) when the party is over, and they cracked them selves in to any number of mental illness, they can't work, then they get a case worker, who naivley signs up for disability through social security, then medical assitance, and food stamps. also even rental assistance. so society keeps punishing the hard working class people, and rewarding the junkies. OH yea, and one biggy that was left out, ready for this one??????
DENTAL ASSISTANCE, to get their dentures, for cracked out teeth!!
And the most innocent victims---their children have to be counted as victims of the"sins of the parents" because these children are being raised by drug-addicted adults . How about the financial, educational&social responsiblities the taxpayers have to take on not only for the parents' mistakes but for the future burden on society for the upbringing of these innocent children.

As the state passes new laws to reduce prison populations Allentown's right-wing government pushes its police to neutralize the efforts of the state legislature and pack the prisons with more non-violent stupid people.

Here is a real solution to the crime problem. STOP TURNING STUPID PEOPLE INTO CRIMINALS WHO THEN MUST BECOME DEPENDENT ON CRIME FOR THEIR ECONOMIC SUSTENANCE.

Reduce crime by prescribing addictive substances to incurable addicts. This stops the addicts from selling drugs to new generations of American children and reduces addiction rates. It also gets the addicts out of their dependence on street crime for economic sustenance and reduces crime rates for all of us.

http://www.swissinfo.org/eng/front/detail/Swi...

Locking up more and more people simply results in more and more people being locked out of the legitimate economy and thus ECONOMICALLY DEPENDENT on crime to live.

National Institutes on Drug Abuse Genetics working Group mission statement:

"...Like many other psychiatric illnesses, drug abuse and dependence comprise a complex set of genetic disorders lacking a simple pattern of Mendelian inheritance. Multiple genes with relatively small effects are likely to influence vulnerability to addiction, gene x environment x development interactions appear to play significant roles in mediating outcomes, and there may be no simple correspondence between current phenotypes and the genotype(s). Therefore, a broad range of scientific approaches will be needed to elucidate the role and identity of genetic factors in drug abuse vulnerability."

America will NEVER arrest and incarcerate its way out of the crime that comes from the genetic disease of addiction being illegal.

An imprisoned addict cost $ 95 a day in Pennsylvania. Prescribing them the drug cost less than half of that at most.

An addict victimizes dozens or hundreds of innocent citizens before being arrested. A prescription maintained addict does not use crime for their daily work.

An addict dealer might turn on hundreds of new addicts before they are locked up causing more addiction. An addict in a prescription program would no longer be dealing drugs to more of our children. this would reduce addiction rates in the community. Reduce the addiction rates and we reduce crime.

Addicts are the street sales force for the drug gangs. Get the addicts into prescription programs and they no longer work for the gangsters. This weakens the drug gangs both financially and socially.

These are real solutions to drug crime in Allentown and America.

As the law enforcement experts at Law Enforcement Against prohibition put it, "You can cure and addiction. You can't cure a conviction." leap.cc/
