We are the real problem

The house that burned in Grass Valley, (“Drug oil production …” Jan 27) was set ON PURPOSE? Of course not, so why wasn’t it an accident? (Drug grower/manufacturers can have accidents, too, can’t they?) Is this more “no crime UNTIL caught” mentality that increasing numbers LIVE BY that determines how we see it? Do “donations” pouring in relieve “collective” involvement the same way “tithing” relieves responsibility of “collective” sinning? Is “collective” grief avoided since no child died in this “nonaccident” event? Community: Do a “self-check”. GET IT, that “there are no boundaries” if breaking the law, ON ANY LEVEL, is part of a “life choice.” Yes Ð this is anti-drug calls a spade a spade, a druggie is a druggie, and a criminal is a criminal. There’s no distinction made between those that who are caught (accident or not), those who “maintain” (are “accepted” by their society) , those “bred” for the job (the intergenerational guarantee), and the self-serving (free “to be” without having to “deal”) who CONTRIBUTE “collectively” to these situations! If you feed the Nevada Co. “drug economy,” then be OK with houses burning, UPS drivers dying and job security for the fire/police. YOU contribute “collectively” – YOU ARE the problem.
