obnoxious morontruth-revealing HERO, L. BROOKS PATTERSON (who I REALLY want to meet – and if he comments on this blog – I’ll truly love the man forever), Oakland County Executive, has criticized Michigan’s prison system for wanting to downgrade some felonies to misdemeanors, saying:
“Everybody should go out and buy a gun. I recommend an Uzi. If you don’t like guns, then I suggest you buy a pair of guard dogs, preferably a pit bull and a Rottweiler.
You’re going to need them.
There’s a harebrained scheme that has some momentum in Lansing to reclassify as many as 200 felonies and magically convert them into 200 new misdemeanors.
The result will be inmates who should be in state prison are going to be in jail, and people who ought to be in jail are going to be in your neighborhood. And it all will be done in the name of cutting costs at the state Department of Corrections.
How do you spell stupid?”
He’s ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!!
If we make felonies misdemeanors, this means more people taken to local (OVERCROWDED) county jails, and many criminals released because of this. Vicious criminals are already being released onto the street as it is, and this new plan does NOT have the citizens’ best interest at hand.
If anything, we need to move some misdemeanors to the felony category!
L. Brooks Patterson needs to keep getting the word out about this heinous plan. Keep protecting the citizens – if you need more room in the state prisons, kill off the murderers – it’s time we had the death penalty in Michigan anyway.
