Blind justice?

After 25 years of crime and four meth possession, transportation and sales arrests in less than one year, Dwaine Frye received drug rehab by Judge Darlington because of an outpouring of letters asking to give Frye “one more chance.”

I wonder how many letters it would take to get Charlie Manson released?

As someone who has been burglarized five times over the last 25 years and lost many irreplaceable items – not to mention the financial setbacks and the feeling of being violated – I have no love for crankheads (any policeman will tell you 95 percent of thievery is by druggies). Where is the proof that Frye was drug free for seven years? More likely he was just lucky and didn’t get caught.

How many other cranksters got their first hit of meth directly or indirectly through Frye?

It could easily be in the hundreds if not thousands, all of whom now know even if you get caught the consequences are less than zero.

How do the policemen feel when they risk their lives to arrest these quite possibly armed and violent criminals only to see them back on the street two days later?
