Offenders should be jailed

Doesn’t anyone go to jail anymore?  Breaking in and rob, run someone over, see how many fish you can store in your freezer?

The list goes on, and a lot here in Otter Tail County.

Seems everyone gets probation and a small fine, if even that.  Pretty soon we will have more people on probation then in jail.  I would not doubt if that freezer was being refilled.

Let’s start teaching bad people a lesson, and throw their butts in jail.
