Home owner, resident and tax payer of Livermore falls
They are in jail for a reason! Gross sexual assault, murder etc. I am sure they feel bad, that they got caught. You should move to Cali. or Colorado I believe you be much happier there. Prison is a PUNISHMENT, invest in the good people who would love the opportunity for a FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION. You bleeding hearts are all the same, it is too late for them to feel sorry, they should have thought before they raped robbed and murdered, we are not talking about people who forgot to pay a few parking tickets here. Free phones, free debit card, entitlement attitude is showing.
You should ask the families of the victims how they feel when their murdered child never had the opportunity to attend college, or the rape victim who needs counseling for the rest of her life how she feels?
Just does not seem right. I understand it is donated money, but it is bad enough that the tax payers have to house them and pay for everything else, medical etc. these people committed serious crimes against for the most part good honest hardworking people and families, so now they get out someday and the State will help them also take a job from some good honest hard working family who has struggled to pay for their own education and everything else. Just seems to me that it is sending the wrong message, if you want a free education go to jail and get job placement assistance when you get out. Buffet should have donated the money to the families of the victims, the ones who are going to be suffering the rest of their lives not by rewarding some convict!
How all New England States are "In 1995, Maine's benefits ranked 13th highest All of the New England states were in the top 15." and all New England States vote Dem. seems to be the norm. As long as people can "collect" more then if they work why should they work? Start screening all parts of the system for drug use and start taking benefits away for life when people willingly and knowingly scam the system, start having DHHS take the kids from the families that are not taking care of them properly. Stop making it so easy for folks to make a career out of playing the system, and start holding the people who do the screening and follow ups accountable, then we might see a decline. But until changes are made it is going to be an open buffet for everyone.
