How to curb crime
The LA County Sheriff’s Department sponsored a time workshop at quartz Hill High back in 1990.
The deputy sheriff conducting the workshop told the audience that “we’d better get ready because the criminal element is moving up from the LA basin.”
Politicians who ran Los Angeles County back then were beginning to use the desert as a dumping ground to move crime out of LA and spread it out over the desert communities.
We now have the criminals here in the high desert and now what can be done to curb all the crime they commit?
First of all, make it easy for us law abiding citizens to get concealed weapons permits, which is next to impossible to get in LA County.
Second, crack down on programs where addicts get funds to buy drugs and all kinds of paraphernalia through lenient state or federal programs.
Third, legalize prostitution in order to reduce crimes of rape.
Fourth, have speedy trials where trials don’t drag on for years and stop this plea bargain nonsense in our courts.
Fifth, crack down on criminals where punishments to them are harsh enough to actually fit their crimes.
Sixth, make prisons nasty places where every able bodied man in prison has to work off their sentence through hard manual labor and where nobody in their right mind would want to be, let alone go back there.
Seventh and most important, boot out all those weak kneed politicians and judges who talk tough, but do nothing to protect us from the bad guys. Their top priority is to get reelected again and again by giving criminals probation over prison time and misdemeanor sentences over felony convictions. Dennis Tope
