The amato trial was an eye opener for sure there Swager. That one was real obvious. But they keep the public dumb downed and what we got is what we got.

Watchdog, excellent point. The cops around here ever got smart. They could make or break Herron.

Bug, not sure I understand your post. You appear to hate the fact those people you mention walk all the time so why would you be for more discretion on the wheel-n-deal side? Can't have it both ways buddy.

Wheel and deal is part of the system now to reduce costs.

Rehab in some cases is certainly better

I kind of think that's how everything works in todays society.

Look at all the Banks,hedge funds operators and Ceo's of different Co, caught defrauding the system.

Got off with a big fine and no jail time,

I guess that's alright.

JP MORGAM just paid a huge fine for it's part in the refinancing of bad loans in 2008

If you are politically connected and have family members who are allowed to obstruct justice, you only get 8 years for executing your wife. pike loves to be able to give passes when it comes to the protected people. pike should have been thrown off the bench after the amato trial along with herron. I don't use capitals for men of low character.

"Although unable to attend, county Prosecutor Robert Herron submitted written testimony in support of the bill. He said local law enforcement is often criticized when a drug dealer can be sentenced to a treatment program for their addiction instead of prison time."

OMG Herron the has to be the fastest political blame shift I have ever seen. I don't know anybody who blames local law enforcement for HERRON'S notorious "WHEEL AND DEAL" epic failures!
