- I can see how one can take that view. But to me it is harmless and positiveDec 10, 2012
- Amanda BlainOwner+2i guess i fail to see how that will make good on those salvageable... I can actually see it enraging more people than benefiting.. A christmas card from the police?? and yes perhaps small cost for print and mailing.. but then a 1800 number staff.. managing... reports.. etc :|Dec 10, 2012
- I don't know that it is an effective idea- but I love that when we fail it is on the side of goofy optimismDec 10, 2012
- Amanda BlainOwner+2^^ this makes more sense... thanks for your insite:) It sounded like they were messaging some hard core criminal with little cards in the news post.. :)Dec 10, 2012
- If it can help reach a few on the fence/borderline of criminal activity then I'm for it. It isn't just 'Criminal types' that get dragged in and involved with organized, and disorganized crime. I knew a shy introverted quirky kid who helped out in the maintenance yard at the kids camp I worked at. He was picked on in school, etc, and wanted to fit in a lot. He wasn't at the camp the next year because he'd been groomed by a gang with the allure of cash and flash and fitting in. Then he got caught doing stupid things in stupid places, and then he went to jail.
Having worked with youth and young adults for many years I can say, they make poor choices, often, without realizing the consequences until it's too late. Spending a bit of money up front, to try to deflect people from going further down the road to poorer choices, and longer term incarceration and the effects of that, gets my approval for trying to find better ways of dealing with tough issues.Dec 11, 2012
- The cards probably cost less than one of these repeat offenders repeating. I agree with.Dec 29, 2012
