    It seems like crime is just a circle of trouble. So many of these crimes are by repeat offenders. This country needs a huge change in regards to punishment. I am not going as far as "an eye for an eye", but I wouldn't protest it if they brought it back. All I am saying is a guy can't steal a third time if he doesn't have two hands.

      "Repeat Offender" Do you mean the person who has payed their "debt to society" and has been released into a world that will have absolutely nothing to do with them? Example, "It is against our corporate policy to hire Felons" or, "It is against our corporate policy to approve rental applications for anyone with a criminal background." I'm not saying that these individuals are not responsible for putting themselves in this situation, THEY ARE! However, I don't see any clear path for these individuals to become the nice law-abiding taxpaying citizens that you want them to be. There is little to no opportunity for self-improvement. This is where the "Repeat Offender" becomes trapped. No job, no where to live, but this person still has to feed themselves and their families. Oh yeah, they will also violate probation and return to jail if they can not meet the state mandated supervision fees. Many "Repeat Offenders" are committing crimes to "pay-off" the system. "SMH" It's clear to me because I actually care! You solve these problems, and you will see a sharp decline in "Repeat Offenders". I just call it like I see it! It's easy to run your mouth about something you never attempted to understand. (Eastern NC seems to have an extremely high percentage of this type of behavior) It's another thing to actually analyze the real issues that plague this nation. If this concept went over your head, don't worry about it, I wasn't talking to you anyway...
