    I sent the diary on the rec. list about the MI kid getting shot for pot to my two MICHIGAN Senators urging them to support Webb.  I will also go sign for Webb.

    First we spend tax money to catch and try them, then we spend tax money to lock them up, and then we spend even more tax money to do prison re-entry services.   Since almost no employers will hire someone with a criminal record, they then either return to jail or move on to the dole in some way.   Can you imagine the savings if they would just quit making them (criminals) ?   Duh!!!!!

    There are a lot of people who belong in jail and that I absolutely don't want on the streets.  But the drug war needs to stop, and prisoners should at least be safe from each other when they are in jail.   Our criminal justice system is a disgrace.  

    They're asking for another four years -- in a just world, they'd get 10 to 20 ~~ Dennis Kucinich
