Make all these people actually do time. Don't just send them home on probation to finance the general fund of the county. If you read the paper, it's usually the same ones every time. If there was REAL punishment, they might think twice. As far as drug addicts and alcholics,They don't think at all, so lock them up till they are over it.

Where would you suggest locking them up? In the jail that's already running about twice capacity? Do you propose spending money for an addition to the jail. Do you propose operating the court system (general fund) without fees and fines from offenders, or would you rather the taxpayers pay for everything? Are you in favor of raising taxes to house drug addicts and alcoholics until they are "over" their disease?
