Way too short sentences is why there are so many indictments. Has to hurt them enough to not want to continue. As Jim Gamage said, "No reason one cannot find employment. " Beaches need cleaning, floats need painting, streets need sweeping, windows need washing, landscaping from daylight to dark and they will soon find a job. Wouldn't you?? ;)

This is why I support LePage's drug proposal.  Adding more agents, prosecutors and judges.  A look at a drug court with mandatory employment may be an option.  No reason one cannot find employment.
