I do NOT agree with the felony conviction laws in the U.S. Some people think LEO's back this stance, and they are WRONG. Sorry, I'm shouting. Martha Stewart a felon? Some kid selling 4 ounces of "weed"?, ripping off a mailbox for a kid's prank, a felony in which you are scarred for life? No, I don't agree with it. Holding up a Mom & Pop's at gunpoint? Yeah, I do agree with it. Being an adult and selling heroin and crack cocaine outside a schoolyard? Yes. The law's do need to be changed. But a person that commit's crime after crime need's to be watched like a hawk. Before you start feeling too sorry for the John Davis's in this world, look at their past. Hard drug sales, weapon violations, threat's to do bodily harm, and mental instabilities. The public does have the right to be protected from these people. These people are predators and look at normal people as targets, not human beings.

The John Melvin Davis's of this world need to be put into, and kept in, a place where they can do no further harm to people.

John Melvin Davis has an extensive criminal record. I have read it all.

Terry, don't know if some of that came from one of my previous posts to you on the subject. I DON'T think LEO (at least not all LEOs) believe in the system as is. NONE of our sheriff's do, I haven't met a state trooper who does, and the only two feds (one FBI, one Treasury) I talked to thought the system is atrocious.

I was simply asking based on you being an LEO, what you opinion was.

Basically, I'm of a mind that if a criminal is too dangerous because of proven background to be let into society, then they shouldn't soak up $$ living their lives out in prison either. Just get it over with. A lot of the things that are felonies shouldn't be, and a lot of the serious felons get away a lot lighter than they should. It's a system problem, I think we all agree on that.

There will come a point where the US FedGov will do what the Nazi government had to do, and that is to offer rehab by combat.

Basically, unless the person is a complete Hannibal Lechter style whacko they'll wind up in a ground combat unit. Germany really cleared out it's prisons in WWII.

During WWII the Russians used penal units to clear minefields by leading assaults through them.

The Germans were a tad more civilized in that they treated them a bit more like regular soldiers. They used them to spearhead the asaults and they were always covering the retreats.

But gee, would YOU really want to be the commander of a unit like that?

Melvin would like it. We could make him the Colonel of the Urinal.

The Colonel of the Urinal, is the position MELVIN had when he was cleaning Porta-Potties.
