      All prison does is harden criminals. It makes them smarter,
      stronger, and angrier at the current legal system. We should try to help people
      like this without using prison.

      Rehabilitate the non-violent in mandatory out of prison programs.

      Rehabilitate the violent inside prison programs.

      If people are too violent, and start causing violence inside
      of the prison, execute them.

        Yeah, these losers just need to “talk it out.”

        Jail at the very least.

        Terribly sorry. It DOESN’T MAKE THEM SMARTER.  The Rest, absolutely. But I’ve known enough of these people to know they don’t get any smarter

        That doesn’t work either. As long as WE, the people keep buying their suboxone, They will sell it. Get rid of the clinics and make them drug prisons. Of course, NO rehabilitation will work if they don’t want to be helped. I do know we need to get them off the streets. Letters, and phone calls to the commissioner, governor, and legislators. If everybody does it, sooner or later, it will have to work. People are tired of living in fear! I work with these kinds everyday, and I have written and called. The way they are treated in prison is beyond belief. They get what they want, when they want it. Make Maine’s prison system work, This is a joke!

      Little Opie will have lots of takers to ‘protect’ him, no matter the sentence.  :0

        No doubt, he’ll be in for a world of hurt. 

         (By the way….as a side note….the Farmindale salon robbery did state in the very FIRST line:
        ” Police are hunting for a MAN who broke into a salon early Thursday morning and escaped with the cash register.” They later stated in the article that they had no description of the robber. THAT is why I wondered how they knew it wasn’t a female. Your “robberess” comment clearly indicated you either didn’t comprehend the story or you were simply being an arrogant arse….or both. )

        • County Escapee

          Neither….Just perplexed by your comment wondering what gender the perp was. A story that uses a ‘man’ and a ‘robber’ in it more than adequately describes the gender!  THAT is why I questioned your comment! You were obviously the one having problems gleaning info from the articla, NOT I….

      60 days is kinda harsh…..I am going to go with 30 days. I know at least one of them is a repeat offender, and SHOULD go to Leavenworth  actually, any federal prison. Obviously, the ones in Maine do not and will not work the way they are now.

    For most of the people engaged in the drug trade prison time is just a cost of doing business. When they get out they just go back into the drug trade but try to be more carefull about it. So long as there are addicts and users there will allways be sellers. The MDEA does a great job but they are trying to stop a flood with a band aid.
