    Either no one else knows and is afraid to comment or everyone else does know and doesn’t need to comment. So, I’ll bite the bullet and ask; what happened in 1980?

    Ask Tammy. I would say we started locking up druggies and other previous misdemeanors. Gvmt got tough on crime. Ah - I think about that time we were required to release all the schizophrenics and psychotics from the institutions into general population. We went from inpt care to all outpatient care. So - what did happen in 1980?

    Ding ding ding ding ding…… correct JMacy. The govt. started a big CRACKdown (pardon the pun) on druggies.

    I really wasn’t sure. But I knew that we were getting tougher on druggie’s, how far they can be from a school yard, etc. So how did you find out? Look it up on the web?

    And we didn’t have to ask Tammy who is the wise one on this. These stats are very shocking aren’t they.

    OK - so what should we be doing with them? If I remember correctly the number of crimes committed while under the influence has risen sharply also. Meth makes them go crazy and they are wild and murder without knowing. Their strength is greatly increased. Extremely dangerous. However, some of them get longer sentences then the guy who tried to kill Marvin. Tuesday we admitted a guy who thought he was a vampire. He thought he could run out into the traffic. He knew he could get hit, but in his mind he could not be killed. Hmmm!

    I suspected the answer but confirmed with Mike. As for what to do with them….MANDATORY death penalty for anyone who makes or sells drugs of any quantity. Being a Virgo Industrial Engineer, I like simple solutions. :-)
