    Drugs. Keep letting them off so easy and it will keep getting worse. Two things not needed are gangs and drugs. Yet, they get very little or no jail time. Something to keep in mind when the election comes around in November.

      Unfortunately, Pam, people who are on drugs are addicted and it’s difficult for them to get off. I wouldn’t assume drugs were the cause. It could be a number of reasons. Perhaps they have a brain chemical imbalance, maybe drunk, maybe a few teenagers who were extremely bored. Who knows.

      How would you not let them off so easy?
