So none of those people hurt anyone, or took away anyone else's right to life liberty or happiness. They didnt force anyone to buy these drugs, yet we insist they are criminals? Yep lets spend our hard earned tax money on keeping people locked up that didnt hurt anyone.NEWS FLASH, all the people that bought the drugs, came looking for them.

Ray, are you a cop? Just wondering because you sure sound like one. You take what people say and twist it to whatever you want it to mean. I saw that more than once when cops gave testimony to the grand jury I served on.

If anyone wants to see the inside of the legal system, they should serve on a grand jury or 10. It sure was an eye opener for me. Some people really do get railroaded by comments just like yours, Ray. Be careful what you dish out because Karma is a MF'r.
