"I want to put it on the record, I need help with drug addiction your honor," Neiswonger said."

Did Neiswonger ask for help BEFORE he was busted? Nah. Of course not.

19 years should "permanently help with that alleged after the fact, addiction!!

Your right However that doesn't solve the growing problem

The tax payer will now get stuck with his attorney fees.

Plus the cost of incarceration is around $ 40000/yr

Paid buy the tax payer

So what is your remedy Ladybug? Should we just let him go and hope he overdoses someday? Maybe taking other with him that he has gotten hooked on drugs.

The man screwed up and makes a public cry for help and that's how you respond WatchDog? With the stance you take on drugs, you should be happy to help the man. You want to solve the problem right? Isn't one of the first steps admitting you have a problem? So what if it took until he got busted...

I just watched a short story on Detroit.

It is now the 2nd most dangerous city in the country.

THe drug gangs are so bad they are like mafia style.

Even the police are being attacked with over 80000 empty homes.

So just jump in there with your solution concerned.

Yes Grant, that is how I respond. He had a choice from the beginning. NOBODY holds a gun to anyone's head and sez..."DO IT MAN" or I will shoot you. His CHOICE, HIS BAD DECISIONS IN LIFE. NOT MINE, HIS AND HIS ALONE.

You are too soft Grant. You have sympathy for this POS then YOU volunteer to pay out of your own pocket and help him. YOU let him into your home and YOU help him. You take him by the hand and CLEAN HIM UP and I promise you...he will fail again.

I am sick of these "after the fact" addiction excuses.

YEP it sure will Ladybug and that is because these POS and the criminals have more rights than a victim. The bleeding hearts of this country have turned our correction facilities into HOTEL HILTONS. The punishment system in America is a JOKE that does NOTHING to deter crime or drugs.

If this POS would have blown up his neighbors and inflicted his toxic killing waste of a few innocent neighbors, would you still be sympathizing with this scumbag?

Contact the Salem Tax Department and have them tell you how much money in taxes this POS has paid to live in Salem!

Personally I think we've reached a point of no return.

The need and demand is so great there isn't an answer.

The "I need help with drug addiction" is the usual garbage these people try to feed the judges. They also like to talk about getting sober, getting a job, getting a GED, etc. Funny, considering these things were the farthest things from their minds on the previous day when they were wasted and fighting with the cops.

Well, bug, the large majority I see have never had too much in the way of a job to begin with, their "family" situations are pretty loose knit at best, none of them have any real intention of getting clean or sober, and all of them have an endless line of BS. They routinely get locked up for months, or even years, at a time. Instead of taking advantage of their time away from the booze and drugs and make an attempt to recover, they go right back out and get into the same hole they were found in before they were arrested. I can't sympathize with that.
