    but if it was legal, they couldn't trade stolen goods for drugs, not ending theft to fuel their habit, but definitely lessening it

    Really? Legalize drugs? How is that going to stop anything?

    Sorry Stilly, but I'm sure all will lead back to crime. Nothing good has ever come out of something that bad.

    I would live to write something that might help. Let me put something together. I also want to make it clear that if they are given the chance to change and then continue to act in a manner unfit for society they should have harsher penalties in place. I do however agree with the legalization of drugs, the war on drugs is just a glass war, its made of smoke and mirrors. It will never end and more and more innocent people will die from the "war" its the biggest waste of money ever. Legalization has been shown in many studies to bring crime down. plus the government is able to tax it. Then they can use the tax money to put real treatment programs in effect. As for driving a crappy car to deter thieves, that's ludicrous no one should have to change there life for someone else. One last thing. If someone broke into my car tweaker or not and I caught them, lets just say when the cops finally come and ask what happened and why the thief was barley breathing, my answer would be "he fell" I dont condone that kind of behavior. The only reason I responded to the thread is a general statement about killing someone for a drug habit is dumb. how about just stating that thieves deserve to die.

    Norcal, Thank you for your willingness to help. Education in our days seems to be lacking GREATLY. I hope a piece of awareness might inspire more minds to help find a solution.

    Yes, putting a bulls-eye on every criminal is much easier to do, and yes, in a general sense tweakers will not stop until they are dead. I guess what I am trying to achieve with the help of Norcal is to find those in the mix that may recover if the right circumstances should arise. Why do I care? I just recently had a friend relapse. He has been clean for over 2 years and is really close to being a journeyman electrician. He's a generous person with a heart of gold that has been smacked down with painful losses, one after the other. He bounced back for these past 2 years, but something got the best of him. This happened last week. I haven't spoken to him yet.

    I think viewing this thread so much has caused Facebook to take note. This is now a sponsored link that shows up next to my news feed:

    Holy freaking crap man, this is a fly fishing forum, not some shoot 'em up premedetated crime planners hot spot. You should really get your theraputic dosage levels checked out. When was the last time you got out on the water, swung a soft hackle, streamer, drift or skated a dry? You are overdue.

    I don't nymph much these days. The whole spey thing ruined me.

    About the only time I find it worthwhile now is when I'm in a boat on the move to the next run. But I'm finding that using one of them evil, knuckle dragger type gear rods is more fun in that situation anyway :thumb:

    Seriously! Between this and the poaching thread I was beginning to wonder if I could ever step outside again with the rivers apparently filled with roving packs of poachers, vigilantes, russians and tweekers! But then another, more pleasant thread, brings this singular thought to mind.

    Thank you Yogi. I can go fishing again.
