  1. There isn’t enough room in the jails or money to house cloth or feed them, cover their drug and dental costs (although they are probably paying for it already anyway) A pitiful and sad situation these revolving courthouse doors that has them back on the street in a flash to carry on with their crime sprees and make people’s lives miserable.

  2. And of course they are out walking the streets again !! I seen the girl walking down the street at the Xmas Parade..
    Maybe instead of throwing all these people in jail they should get sentenced to a rehab. Same as jail time & whatever but in a rehab. I think it would be alot more helpful & useful. Could possible help a few of them so they change their lifes around.. {{Just speaking in general}} Not about the kidnappers !! This city really needs to start doing something to help all the drug problems & crime. Or this will be a dieing city in another few years itll be so run down & shitty, noone will want to live here anymore. Especially it being a boarder town too !

    • If they force them to treatment, they are there for all the wrong reason and a waste of resources, time and money. Can’t fix stupid till it wants to be fixed.
