One thought on “Police requesting public assistance to locate offender

  • Hard to believe these people take off when they are doing a relatively small sentence to begin with. I think fair assumption as well that most go out and reoffend because addiction plays a huge part of what drives them. Likely not many get very far either or for very long.
    I have to wonder if they even ask themselves if it’s even worth the extra time they get added on when eventually caught. I’m aware that it is a very difficult situation to get out of once the federal system is involved. The nightmare of the revolving door is a huge challenge to break away from. If ever.
    I think alternatives to the judicial system are very overdue & the problem I suspect has much to do with the fact that no one has come up with enough good alternatives to put into place.
    ‘Out of site, Out of mind’ is in my opinion, just wrong. It really does not help anyone learn how to live a better way.
