Another pinnacle of society!

Most of White City, Oregon, is simply "trailer trash," so this isn't a surprise.

Won't make much difference what they decide to do. If they give her the money she'll kill herself with drugs, if they don't give her the money she'll steal enough money to kill herself with drugs. Drug addicts have only one goal in life--get more drugs.

What kind of crap is that. Sentence her to only a month for one crime (Using a stolen credit card) and then give her credit for time served for a totally different crime (possession of meth) what kind of "justice" system do y'all have down there in Oregon?
In addition, the "State" took back the money and you can bet it didn't go back into the lottery but into some politician's slush fund. If they were going to take the money from her they should have given it to the credit card owner or in this case where the owner was deceased, it should be given to her estate

The Perfect punishment! To have to watch ALL that money go away! If she been able to keep it - she would be dead inside of 6 months of a drug overdose!
