When an impressionable fifth grader, for example, is approached by an older kid or even an adult like this one, and talked into trying then buying some dope, is the fifth grader really DEMANDING drugs? Easy to think the sentence is too harsh, until it becomes a possible trade off between this person's freedom, or the life of YOUR kid. How many kids got turned on, or accelerated beyond a chance to jump off the bandwagon, by this person or her cronies? A 99 year sentence for dealing drugs is very, very easy to avoid.
Agreed. Since our web host is a bleeding heart liberal, it's always in his best interest to disagree with everything that comes out of the courtroom (aquittals excluded of course).Amazing that he didn't give credit to the judge or jury for the sentencing though. It's not like prosecutors are allowed to sentence people.
Until its legal they should all be locked away and the key swallowed by a rabid elephant. I applaud them. Now go get the other 7895 dealers in tarrant county and we will be getting something done.
I bet the Tarrant County DA's "PR gal" (a bit condescending for a PC liberal?) doesn't cost the taxpayers nearly as much as the entourage the POTUS has.
We get it Green, you don't agree with the drug war. Get a new sctick. This one's gettin old.
Stupid Chicano. She would have been in less trouble if she would have shown up for her first court appearance.She got what she deserved.
Were Drugs or Alcohol involved?
She was dealing dope and we threw a punishment at her that receives no rehabilitation. Those that are given 2nd chances are the ones who typically embrace the good path. However, everyone on here seems to have never needed a 2nd chance to understand rehab.I do not want my money to pay for her stay in prison for 99 years. That should be reserved to violent crime and molesters.It would have been easier to have her do community service for the next 10 years so atleast there would be nice flowers around town.Talk about small government and lower taxes, but then send people to prison forever for dope. Then grandstand it. Action > Words
As long as the attorneys get paid.......have at it.
America has an insatiable appetite for drugs. Interdiction of drugs has not worked and will not worked as long as there are consumers that want to use them. A person who is substance abuser whether by drugs or alcohol can be dangerous if they drive a car or do some other type of act that endangers the public. I think Ron Paul is right on this one. If anyone is impaired and cannot drive a car, arrest them and put them in jail. They are responsible for their actions. Putting this lady away for a few years doesn't do anything more than take a week of the Court's time to try her and then make the taxpayer pay to house her.
Uh, DEALER people, DEALER. Did u miss that part?
She had a second chance. It's called showing up in court when you're suppose to. She got what she deserved.
Maybe it wasn't a violent crime but she was ugly so that had to be considered.
Her addiction and life circumstances led to this- things beyond her control. Would you sentence somebody to 99 years for having cancer?Regardless, faggots- if you had to look at a monthly statement of how much of your tax dollars went to warehouse that woman for however long it is (won't be near 99 years) you'd poop a brick and be DEMANDING justice for her and reform in general.Lock 'em up and throw away the key. That's cool and well and good, but somebody has to pay dumb asses.
He made it sound like it was weed. This was COCAINE and METH for crying out loud. I am liberal, Barry is SUSPECT at best!
99 years and nobody's dead or hurt? That is insane but yet, as Barry often points out, the war on drugs goes on and on and on. It's become a law enforcement cash cow and sadly, a permanent way to deal with the problem.Legalize and regulate pot then tax it. Instant mega-revenue from a harmless herb.
Throw all crystal Methodists under the jail.
Remotely Controlled, now I know all you watch is MSNBC.
AH YES...ALL OF YOU "THROW AWAY THE KEYS" TARDS WILL SING A MUCH DIFFERENT TUNE IF IT'S ONE OF YOUR BRATS INVOLVED!!! RIGHT?
Here's the cold, hard truth.You Anonymous mugs is gonna be paying for this broads food, cloths, medical care, counseling... and toilet paper for 99 years. You is soooo smart!!!(Please note that you've thoughtfully included ME in your stupid vendetta.)
Its a shame we will have to pay to feed and shelter these drug dealing illegal aliens for the next 30 years. Maybe we will get lucky and someone will kill them in jail. I heard the meth heads in Lakeside, that let there child get eaten by their dogs, was buying their dope from these illegal alien druggies.
We understand Barry, your liberal ways lead you to believe the drug using maggots of society are mistreated by law enforcement. Surely there is a loop hole a good defense attorney like you should get them off. As a member of law enforcement, I am disgraced that you ever served as a prosecutor. How many thugs walked during your term
Give them a choice ninety nine years or a cycnide pill today.take your pick.I still say if you forced them to take all that they were found with right then it would end the problem.
Felony stupid ... Not her. Us!
If you criticize laws and penalties then the society in general perceives that you are criticizing the good.When the laws or penalties don't make sense, someone needs to stand up against them without being labeled a bad guy. Just making laws and penalties tougher doesn't solve the problem.
Great!Three hots and a cot for 99 years a a time when we're all oh-so-concerned about costs to taxpayers.
Wanna bet the former Cowboys player, Hurd, gets off much easier?
I think Barry is paid by taxpayers like the PR gal is.Wise County like many Texas counties uses the assigned counsel system to provide legal defense for indigent lawbreakers. I am assuming that Mr. Green is on the assigned counsel gravy train.
Be careful Barry, chances are much greater than zero you'll be dealing with drugs touching your newly aquired "little ones of the house" before your financial obligation to them is over. When that happens, I just wonder how one-sided your liberal opinion of the harmlessness of drugs will be then. And instead of criticizing the current fight on drugs, offer some foolproof brilliant alternative solution, or shut your pie hole. Karma is a bitch. Be careful, be very, very careful.
8:56. No, however, I do watch FOX on occasion when I want to see clowns. They make me laugh. And I watch the other stations occasionally for the weather.Apparently you watch MSNBC, since you know what they are like? What channel is it on, so I can watch some and we can get together and gossip!!! That would be sooooooo aaawwweessssooommmmmeeee!!!!!!
Remotely Controlled, Us getting together? What a belly laugh!!!
In my many years of wisdom I have noticed a pattern. The best way to find out if someone is a drug user, drunk or even a speeder, is to ask them their opinion on the matter. Most will try and defend their actions in some form or fashion. Most are Cop haters, imagine that.My point, be careful what you defend or advocate, because other people realize this too.
10:53 -- just defend freedom and we'll be all right. Connecting the dots as you described above is a slippery slope. I am an American and freedom is the most important thing to me. As I said in an earlier post, the war on drugs is a huge cash cow for the authorities and, in many cases, has led to fewer freedoms for all of us.Telling me to be careful about my opinions is rather ominous, isn't it? There could come a time when your opinions are scrutinized as well.
Yeah, because only an insensitive jerk of an attorney would publish his wins, right? Wait. What?
"She got what she deserved."But did we get what we deserved? Costs about $38k/yr to keep an inmate in prison. That's about what I make, and I have a college degree. (Yeah, yeah. But the work is steady.)Anyone here think that simple incarceration solves the problem?
If she was white and hot she would have gotten probation and you know it.I'm not saying it's right or that I'm a bleeding heart for the OTCs, it's just a fact.
