  • Well Sly is wanted again. He just got out a couple months ago. Nice to see nothing changes.

    • Poverty plus unemployability plus mental health issues equals to incarceration

      • Has he been here since birth, 56 yrs ago? By now the “experts” in our fair college town know why. But they’d lose income or their degreed jobs if they said it.

        • He and Mr Ward were classmates… maybe Mr Ward can house him…

      • Not true. I personally know several people who choice to be homeless due PTSD or other issues. Some of them work others do not. I am proud to say that NONE. I repeat NONE has ever seen the inside of a jail cell. They live on their own, do not take government handouts, and are never a burden to anyone but themselves. Being a criminal and trying about being homeless because you are unemployable is a weak excuse. There are several people who also have mental disorders that are productive members of society. Its BS to use excuses of homelessness, drug addiction, mental disorders to say I cant work or I can be a law abiding human being.

  • Let’s bring back work camps for these lifers. Make them be productive while incarcerated. At least that way they can somehow pay back part of their debt to society.

  • What happen to the ole chain gangs? Let’s implement that again.
