its getting pretty hard to not break the law
so what are you saying, ? don't lock them up, or don't place them on probation?
no its not pretty hard to break the law , dipshit. i can't think of any .. give us an example. a goopd one that people are getting put in prison for. i am waiting, dumb ass
People that use profanity to make a point do so because they are making up for a lack of vocabulary skills! It is a sign of ignorance!!!
prisons and law enforcement are growth industries. you certainly never hear of police officers or prison guards being laid off. if a police chief, sheriff, FBI Director, etc., asks for a budget increase, it will always be granted. otherwise, the politicos will be "soft on crime" or "willing to endanger the health and safety of the public over a few dollars".the more crimes we put on the books, the more acts (or failures to act) that we make illegal, the more police we will need to enforce them, the more criminals we create, and the more prisons we will need to house those criminals. this much is clear.what is not quite so clear: the more "criminals" we create, the more latitude the enforcers will have in determining which of the criminals (either by type, or by specific individual) to arrest and incarcerate. which paves the way for arrests and prosecutions that are politically motivated to one degree or another.this, my friends, is called fascism.
I'll give you some criminals who're not incarcerated - yet. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld. They routinely break laws that they determine shouldn't apply to them - unlike the criminals who do get caught and prosecuted and sentenced.
I am glad someone someone on here had the cojones to say it hhl. I couldn't have said it better myself!
"Incredible"? - hardly.All of this provides jobs for lawyers, senators, congressfolks and Presidents.Crime IS the economy these days.
you people are crazy !!
you can tell who lives in newark. but i didn't know they had internet access in newark
If we keep on this train of thought concerning criminals, persecution and the economy, we may be deleted from this board.Reckon?
If it wasn't for the laws being broken and the law breakers being jailed, Barry would not have a job. Legalize drugs and we can dispose of about half the lawers in the world.
Guy deals dope to undercover officer, guy gets probation. A little time goes by and guy again gets caught selling dope to undercover officer. WHAT ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO WITH GUY!!!
quit buying dope from guy?
How many criminals were black and how many white ?
So you are saying that the police should stop doing their job because this "guy" cant quit selling dope??
i'm saying this shouldn't be their job.
Can you get me guy's phone number...I need a fix.
Yes! And crime rates keep coming down because offenders are where they volunteered to be. Because of stricter punishments, better trained law enforcement and tightening up on liberal judges, society is reaping the benefits. As long as we have that 1/32 factor around, I believe we should keep on building big, roomy prisons until they all have another place to live.
Drug Court would be a great thing for Wise County
Amen 2:59...it's ok to say that we should leave the drug dealers alone and that the penalties are to tough until one of these liberals kids buy drugs from one of these guys and then they're quick to blame someone else.
Wonder what percentage of folks do crime just to GET caught and sent up.Good gosh - there are more perks in prison than for Americans who try to obey the law.Sex, drugs an education, medical care - the list goes on.Do the crime - Do the time.What a crock.
If GM and American Airlines would quit laying off, the crime rate would go way down!
Ahem!According to a report released last month by the Bureau of Justice Statistics roughly 3% (7,000,000) of the 240,000,000 adults in the United States have at some point been convicted of a crime and sentenced to serve either prison and/or probation terms. Of an all-time high United States prison population of 2,305,000 approximately 1/4 are for drug convictions. According to the BJS report drug crimes accounted for 21% of state prisoners and 55% of all federal prisoners. The increase in U.S. prison population is likely due to the continuing impact of mandatory and other sentencing policies that require judges to impose lengthy prison terms and the increase in parole revocations.Approximately 60% of the current prison population is made up of ethnic minorities.CLEARLY there are more than just drug crimes being committed in the United States. With only 3% of the population having been convicted of a crime punishable by prison and/or probation it is a fairly safe bet to state that the United States has QUITE a way to go before it embraces "facism."
Special Delivery to Anon 5:54: Yeah sure, Genius! GM and American Airlines have no duty to their stockholders to make a profit...they are only GIGANTIC WELFARE INSTITUTIONS that should keep people employed no matter the cost. What a brilliant idea that is!
If there was less crime and nobody going to jail, Barry couldn't afford a cellphone with camera or a double wide with sunken living room for fat black chicks to dance in or drive one of them fancy linguini cars or have this blog for us to rant and rave on all day long while were enjoying a nice ice day off from work.
anon 7:17 Look at Flint , MI. They are at the top of the "most dangerous cities" list. Wonder why?? GM layoffs.I guess you think giving execs a 23% payraise after the employees gave up over 18 % of ther pay is OK, like they did at AA. Robert Crandall the Ex AA CEO even saud airline stocks are for suckers and didnt even recommend investing in his own company AMR!Hope you never fly AA thru Miami!!
