As long as we just keep

As long as we just keep "slapping" their hands this will continue to happen. After the second or third time why are they back out on the street?? Seems to me like "rehabilitation" is something that just will not work and money spent for that purpose should be spent on building facilities to house these people and keep them away from society. Will out lawmakers ever learn???????

Already a convicted

Already a convicted felon...that is the real problem all of this liberal justice....these violent criminals (any race/any sex) need to be permantly removed from our society by any means necessary.

You can't call it

You can't call it "rehabilitation" when all they do is hang out all day in jail and wait their turn to get out and do it all over again. Where's the "rehabilitation" in watching tv or chillin' with fellow inmates all day?

I say bring back the chain

I say bring back the chain gang, to heck with prisoners rights, they need to work and work hard while in prison and should also have to take classes to get a better education, all should be a requirement, how else will they ever learn to be productive citizens. Jail is a free ride, free food, free bed what incentive is there to do better when they get out, on the other hand if they had to work their butts off doing some hard labor then the mentality about prison time would change.

If they'll keep these

If they'll keep these dangerous felons locked up and if citizens would start arming themselves and shooting these thugs committing these robberies, maybe Augusta would soon become a safer place to live.

We need to contract with

We need to contract with Sheriff Arpaio out in AZ to house all of these thugs and work their behinds off. It's pretty cheap to house these scumbags in a tent and feed them balogna. Nothing in the rules anywhere that says they have to have air conditioning, TV, or gym equipment. The jail system we have today is a self inflicted wound brought on by the "rehabilitators". Two things you can't fix, stupid and mean.
