Retired, gone fishin'
Sadly, another societal trend that has backfired.
If these guys knew they would be locked up or saw their buddies locked up for a reasonable amount of time they might think twice rather than using their quick release as bragging rights.
An illustration of the power of drug addiction.
Consequences do not matter. Jail doesn't matter. Family doesn't matter. Life itself doesn't matter to some.
Get more drugs is the only thing that matters. To the addict the drugs are life, above all else, including family, friends, loved ones, jobs, food, shelter, all the basics of a normal person's concept of living.
Addicts don't live, they exist for one purpose, to get and use drugs. They are sick.
To many using addicts being arrested and locked up is a gift. The beginning possibly of
a new way of life.
I understand the the anger even hatred by victims of crime from drug addicts. I get it.
I've been stolen from too many times like many on the forum. JMHO.
