  • Should have done it before getting arrested, would save the Garuds the hastle of making the report… I do not believe in taking the easy way out.
    Pull up your pants and do your time

    • Like your comment(s). You are exactly right on taking the easy way out.

    • I, in the other hand, think your remarks reflect the mind of a self-absorbed doofus. Criminals don’t migrate toward poverty. Poverty stricken people migrate toward crime. If you want a better society, gut the corporatocracy so everyone can have some economic well-being. Duh!

  • Who asked for your beliefs?

    Belief + Mob Mentality = The Death of Creativity/ Ingenuity/ Progress/ Thought/ Empathy/ Excellence/ et al.
    Homegirls probably–statistically speaking–serving time for self medicating because mental health care is uh… somewhat lacking… another non-violent victimless criminal. If anyone would like to call drug use a crime with victims (family, friends) make sure to add that cookie to the list. Your clogged arteries and heart failure leaves the same victims behind. More, actually. Many.

    Good thing to know you got pants to wear when you find the floor…….

  • Well that’s certainly going to leave a mark 🙂

  • Sad no matter how you look at it. As much as its sad,why is she there? She committed a crime. It’s not hard to do the right thing in life. We all pick our paths!!

  • I don’t know why they haven’t completly closed the upper level off. I have heard so many of these stories. Those rails are so low. Someone could easily throw someone off them as well. Don’t ask me how I know….lol.

  • people end up in jail for many reasons. Many inmates need rehab and mental health but most probably won’t get that before they are released or rebooked later.
    I feel for the woman that tried to end her life.
    I would hope she could get long term counseling .

  • I have found the biggest reason people end up in jail is they have broken the law.
