    • The douch bags are the ones who think putting drug addicts in jail will help!!!!!

      This ridiculous system needs fixing starting at the top. So put the pressure on government to get mental health to be a priority. Jail, what a joke. Safe house for criminals. You haters are a joke too.
      We are to lazy to help, just complain. If I put others down I will feel better. Spelling is not my strong point Peace to us all

      They are sick drug addicts with mental health issues. No quick fixes Go back to make some more money and complain. Get a new walking stick from REI. I’m so special.

      • I’m with you. When I saw the pic I was horrified and felt pity for this guy.

      • Lost Croat Outburst

        Yeah, we’ll see how merciful you’ll feel when you find some POS in your home loading up all the stuff you worked and saved for in a bunch of reverse-Santa bags for quick removal.

      • True the mental health system is horrible in this state.jail just makes people worse.I’ve been through it.I had a meltdown and they through my ass in jail.they didn’t help me at all.people like that need a drug program for at least six mouths.if I were him I would move away hard working people should not have to put up with this shit.I tell you what you come in my house and try to rob me I’ll just dump your ass in alderpoint.straght up he lucky he’s still alive.
