Hiyah Sarah,
Dear Sirs.
These are states conditions in the Middle Ages.
Friends worldwide, grasp the handle and create a global human chain to help others.
Well, good, the citizens do something. Perhaps my voice does not count not from Germany.
But, this is embarrassing for the political leadership. Citizens eighth world wide to such grievances and assist. care2 is great, people are great here.
I plan to soon be a petition to open. Our children aged from 5-6 years, in the first class must make sex education. Pants down. touch ect. Learn what is gay,. what is a lesbian. what is bisexual. how to do it. How does it feel to. Our children feel bad. Our politicians have high salaries and feel good. That came from gay politician. and to stand at the top in the government, nothing was said. Citizens fight back.
Pedophiles are politicians in the alliance parties THE GREENS / ALLIANCE 90 AND IN SPD.-Die Grünen-Bündnis 90-/ + SPD.- Our German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the CDU party are clean:
Maybe, a lot politician like to live Sodom and Gomorra. But I defend MY children how a lion mother. But we need your vote from other countries, too. This is embarrassing for Germany. FG -Carola, Berlin Germany and my english not so good to time. sorry me. Please .
cccccccPS: We should be wise as serpents, but without duplicity / fraud. --a council of Jesus and works well.--- And so I do and do my friends in care2.ccccccc

What the hell ever happened to rational thinking in the justice system? There needs to be a SENSIBLE formula for habitual non-violent criminals. For instance, every time a criminal gets sentenced a MANDATORY 2 or 3 yrs gets added after the first or second offense This way a stupid criminal who can't or won't be rehabilitated will eventually WORK his own way into a very long sentence.

Signed,. Some other states also have a 3 strikes rule. Our prisons are overpopulated as it is and it seems the cost of housing a person for 40 years greatly exceeds the cost of implementing rehabilitation, outreach, vocational, counseling and other service to help these people. I can only imagine how much it costs to keep someone locked up. Yes there are people that deserve long term sentences for heinous crimes but not people who simply make poor choices, plus I'm sure cops and DA's simply see a previous conviction and turn things into the worst possible scenarios for people who probably would have gotten a slap on the wrist if they hadn't been previously convicted of something.

Signed of course, but am afraid it's probably not going to change much. Once the slippery slope of for profit prisons became the "new prison" system, sentences and those jailed for minor crimes increa$ed. Am all for long or life imprisonment for crimes that merit them i.e. Murder, rape, pedophiles or child sexual trafficking etc.... But too often now some sentences are grossly way over the top for some crimes. On the one hand incarceration for drug addicts instead of recovery from addiction is a much better option, but oh no, not with the prison profiteers around! Here in California the for profit prisons are having a field day with minors/teenagers, sooner or later it is going to be shown that judges, lawyers and the good ole prison profiteers are in cahoots. How is that affluenza MURDERER doing? Now he should be in jail, but of course the money door swings both ways for the rich!

When we take the profit out of the justice system then we remove the incentive for the slave mentality that our system is based on.40 years means that many years a corporation can work an mate as an investment for that business. JUSTICE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH IT...peace.

Signed. This isn't justice....it's an injustice against against the people. We have more people in prison than any of the other Countries in the world, obviously this isn't working either.

I'm so sick of reading of people receiving life sentences for stealing a jacket, caught with a small amount of pills or marijuana on them, and caught with some food they stole due to being hungry.

People need opportunities, a living wage, rehabilitation, medical care, not years in prison causing the breakup of families and at the taxpayers expense.

We have police that are shooting people left and right, some have killed at least 3 people in a year and there is little investigation or they simply transfer them, resign them, or worse send them back to work. The unfairness of this system is off the charts.
