Fetal - By Law

You know the "stay fetal" movement that has been percolating for the past few years? The old timers preaching to the young'uns that to keep your sanity, paycheck and job, the wisest course of action was to disengage from a community that wants only to sue you, take your house, and get multi-million dollar judgements against you? We weren't joking.

Now look what has been introduced in the Illinois legislature (THIS IS NOT A JOKE):
  • Short Description: CRIM PRO-QUESTION W/O ARREST

    House Sponsors: La Shawn K. Ford

    Hearings: Judiciary - Criminal Committee Hearing Feb 26 2019 3:00PM Capitol Building Room 118 Springfield, IL

    Synopsis As Introduced
    Amends the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963. Provides that a peace officer shall not stop any person in a public place based upon an officer's inference from the circumstances that the person is committing, is about to commit, or has committed an offense as defined in the Code. Eliminates a provision requiring an officer to provide the person with a stop receipt that provides the reason for the stop and contains the officer's name and badge number. Makes conforming changes. Effective immediately.
Did you catch that? No, not the part about eliminating the stop receipt. The part where conducting a Terry Stop - the most basic of all police work, defined by the US Supreme Court and recognized nationwide as a lawful police action - is completely disallowed. A receipt isn't necessary any more because ALL STREET STOPS WOULD BE OUTLAWED BY STATUTE.
  • you see someone hanging out in a known narcotics hotspot, fitting a given description, engaging in conversation with passersby, exchanging small objects for green slips of paper? No stop allowed;
  • you observe someone with a burning piece of rolled up paper on a CTA platform, expelling a whitish vapor from their mouth, and discarding the paper onto the ground? No stop allowed;
  • you see someone standing with their hands up in the air, while one or more persons rifles through their pockets, removing phones, wallets, other property? No stop allowed
Your observations as a police office would now be invalid according to LaShawn K. Ford's House Bill 0186. The Terry Stop would be no more. "Fetal" has been written into this bill and has already passed from First Reading to the Rules Committee on to the Judiciary - Criminal Committee and is currently awaiting action in the subcommittee.

Illinois politicians have to be among the stupidest people alive, and LaShawn Ford wins (hands down) the "Too Dumb to Breathe Unassisted" award for 2019.

If police work isn't dead, it will be if this passes. And even if it doesn't pass, guess what the prevailing attitude of the legislature is and which direction it's headed? Save yourself, your job and your freedom.

Liberal/progressives do not want the police to interfere with common criminals. In the future all policing will be against dissidents and enemies of the state/government. An armed robber is not an enemy of the state, a conservative is.

Well, I for one would NOT be surprised to see the Illinois legislature pass this. The brightest of them can’t add two and two without using their fingers.

If it DOES pass, just stay in the station and wait for calls, like the Fire Dept. Heck, just move into the fire station - the food is pretty good!

It will be a lot cheaper to put up a wall around Chicago and build a City Prison like in the movie - Escape From New York.

Eliminate the Chicago PD completely and go with Cook County Sheriffs only to police the walls - nothing inside the Wall. A LOT of MONEY SAVED!!

ALL neighborhoods would be "Jail", except Downtown. Downtown would only have access through certain railroads and CTA trains that would have no stops, except outside the city and into downtown - NO neighborhood stops.

Chicago would be "Chicago" only in downtown - the rest would be Chicago Prison. Midway and O'Hare would be part of the City and not the Jail part, of course. Police would ONLY serve the City part and be cut down to about 1,000 jobs.

The more you think about this, the "Smart City" idea for Chicago should be exactly that - a City Prison.

Save money in the Billions every day. This way it could be a Sanctuary City as well -- inside the Wall.

Farfetched??

Hey- this way every Alderman is like a crime lord over his or her district and in reality, does not sound to be too far from what it is today - except the framework is more formalized.

If anything, wards would be taken over and we would get that reduction in Aldermen that many talk about to "save money for the city". Wards would be overrun and be taken by those Aldermen who are power crazy. Maybe we could get it down to 10-12 wards? A BIG WIN for those who want to cut bloated spending- a lot less Aldermen and staff to pay.

Tom Dart is no Lee Van Cleef so we would have to get a real Sheriff(Warden) who is a real prick to run the Guards - but that would be easy.

Build that Wall!!

So...

The Illinois Legislature has overruled and nullified
the United States Supreme Court?

LaShawn Ford is the sponsor?

FUBU legislation...
For Us... By Us...

"The New Equality" centers on peeling away
Police Authority to enforce the laws of the land.

Whoops...
U.S. Law is "racist" and will not be enforced.

Never you mind that U.S. Law is the very foundation
upon which all other laws are established.

"Down with everybody!"
(Who isn't US)

"Overthrow EVERYTHING!"
(That WE don't like)

The United States Marshals should be
surrounding the Illinois Capitol building
right now over this subversive/seditious shit...

If this is allowed to pass, expect a whole lot
more lyin', cryin' and funeralizin' on the
South and West sides.

Look.
Point & Laugh.
Leave.

Police Like You Have No Friends.

"Why y'all actin' like y'all

Didnt Ford get charged a few years back by the Feds, how does this guy still have a job? Illinois will elect anyone.

If the Supreme Court already made a ruling and Ford is attempting to create new law that sidesteps the Supreme Courts ruling, couldnt that be easily challenged? How about the FOP, seems like a police related issue.

Seriously, time to leave Illinois this place is going down faster than the Titanic.

Guess what? The bosses won't be able to tell you to make stops. They will have to concentrate their efforts on getting bus & park checks. This will be like that tv commerical where the bank is getting robbed and the people tell the guy dressed up in the bank guard's uniform, "Aren't you going to do anything", and he replies, "Oh I am not a bank guard, I am a bank monitor." Give them what they want, do nothing, it will get interesting over time.

time to put the bunks and kitchens and tvs and workout rooms and a nice brass pole in the district stations. maybe elevators for the chubbys. only come when called by the munnity. maybe have the bell system too so you know how many p.o. s are needed on a call. respond, code and get back before the food gets cold. give the peoples what they want, the customer is always right. the bwc s turned out to be a goodthing, on call reactive policing might actually be a great stress reliever. the politicians and police brass dont want anyone arrested, the courts dont want to try anyone and the jails dont want any inmates. as a bonus the revrunds and media might finally take a shine to you. hopefully after working out and taking a nice steam, having a great sit down meal instead of some fast food crap and watching a couple hours of sitcoms followed by a nice nap with your own my pillow, you might feel like pouring concrete or building garages like the firemen. dont fight it. embrace that pod next to your bed. the future is here. be the change!

La Shawn Ford is just what the citizens of Illinois wanted, another "Useful Idiot" in the legislature. He is what the Progressive Democratic Party wanted. Congratulations Democrat's. You wanted one Party to control our State and now you have it. Every State Office is held by a Democrat.

Well now that you have total control of our State, what are you going to do with it. Will your Democratic hacks in Springfield allow the proposed Bill to be made law? You can't blame Republicans anymore. You own it. The drive by shootings and killings in Chicago and elsewhere will explode. Much of your voting base will be killing each other.

Should this Bill pass, as well as your progressive taxes, gun control, sanctuary state/cities and out of control spending you guys will be very lonely. If you think you saw people fleeing this State as quick as they did in the past several years, you ain't seen nothing yet. You better get cracking and get more illegals to replenish the voting base in order to make up for the increased body count.

If Jaba the Hut spent $171 M of his own money to win (buy) the Governor's Office he can surely write a check for all the fleeing tax payers in order to make up the difference.

This crap and I hope it’s not true, but I worked 12 years on midnights since 30Apr01. Your driving alone, with a person that has no time, a Copper you’d rather not work with, and so on. The Job is a hard job. The Civilian that believes we spend all our time in D&D I’d love to discuss that topic with them.
Recently I heard “EVERY TIME” a Copper draws he/she has to fill out paperwork. If that’s true the Essential Service that’s already dangerous will be that much more dangerous. Who’s gonna cover my Beat while I’m writing why I feel I’m in defense of my Life. When I first got on the deal was draw when you feel it’s a necessary. Maybe you saw something the others didn’t. It was something I never thought about so as to make drawing one’s weapon reflexive. This was taught in 026 by the way. Cleaning, field stripping, practice with snap caps so your draw comes out like a professional. Off target, off trigger, but God Forbid it’s on target, on trigger I don’t want a trivial extra thought in there.
Remember that cat lover Fed Weiss? Outdoor roll call in 006 and he heads for the hills? We were duped cuz he was as much a Street Cop as “Irion Mike” Ryan.
The Police Officer shouldn’t be questioned as to why he drew his weapon. It’ll hurt those I truly respect, The Street Copper.
Robert Plant a few years back brought a guitar in Guitar Center for tuning. GC called A/3 to simply report it. I’m sure if Jimmy Page is in your Band he may have taught The Rock God how to tune his own guitar. Turns out “Fool in the Rain” vocalist actually liked Wrigleyville. So he asked GC 2 do it.
We found Mr. Plant and I drew my weapon. The last thing I wanted to do in front of ANYONE in Led Zeppelin, but I heard that whistle. U know the whistle. The one that says knock him out and take his shit.
Mr. Plant was given a full explanation of why he had to see that.
We offered Led Zep’s Lead Singer a ride to which he said yes. While in the car Mr. Plant wanted to know what it’s like to be a Cop in Chicago? We traded him. What was it like to play with Bonzo? Mr. Plant told us the reverb on “When the Levee Breaks” was by pure accident. They cleared everything out of the mansion they used to record and the living room created a natural reverb. Zeppelin didn’t know until late in the Album.
Hell Naw will something happen to Mr. Plant while we were up there.
He spoke of his OWN Country taxing him at an absurd amount if he graces the shores while his Wife was sick and his five year old boy was fighting for his Life which eventually lost.
C/O Kenny was Bono’s guide when Chicago had U2’s Day. They are the exact same age. Kenny, as decent as he was, couldn’t name one U2 Song.
We invited Them, not the other way around. You’d think just one U2 Song, but nada.

There are hundreds or thousands of bills introduced into the state legislature every year that go absolutely nowhere. A few of these bills get passed in forms that are completely different than what the original text said. You can't get excited about this kind of nonsense. It's just plain not going to pass.

This is not a lot different than the bills that NRA Affiliated Congressman introduced into the House of Representatives every year to Force all states to accept all other states concealed carry licenses. The fix is in. They know it will just quietly die eventually but in the meantime they can use it as a red meat issue.

Uhhhhhhh, as you said SCC, it literally makes it illegal to stop anyone. If I see a guy shoot a guy in the face, I still can’t stop him the way this is written. My inference from the circumstances, me turning the corner east bound, seeing person A holding a metallic object to person B’s head, then seeing a flash from the metallic object held by person A, while also hearing what R/O believes to be a gunshot. Person B then collapses, there’s blood everywhere, people are running and screaming. R/O, given the circumstances, believes that person A has just shot person B in the face in violation of illinois criminal statutes, but given state law recently passed, R/O is not allowed to stop person A. Brilliant. I’m down for this. Since it’s illegal to stop anyone, we can’t arrest anyone. Which means all these shit head judges, states attorneys, and public defenders can all go suck a dick and sit in the unemployment line like they deserve. They dont do shit anyways. I love this bill, I vote YES!

To me the future doesn’t look bright. I love being a Chicago police officer. I know a lot of verterns will say I should leave and go to another state. But it’s not just this state this is happening all over the country. What is with America and all of these anti law and order politicians. Why in society do we have leaders supporting the criminal element and this type of non sense. Where will America be in 5 years 10 years and etc !!!

On November 29, 2012, Ford was indicted on charges of bank fraud alleging he provided misleading evidence to obtain a $500,000 extension on a line of credit. The charges state he used the money for personal expenses rather than rehabilitating an owned property, as stated in the loan documentation. On August 4, 2014, all 17 felony counts of bank fraud and false information against Ford were dropped by federal prosecutors in exchange for his pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor income tax charge, and Ford's trial was removed from the federal docket

Everyone take a frickin deep breath. Just like anyone can file a lawsuit against anyone - you can sue a hamburger - it doesn’t mean the lawsuit has merit or that it won’t be dismissed for whatever reason. Same is true in the legislature. Any legislator can file a bill to do whatever stupid idea he or she has - doesn’t mean it’ll pass both chambers and be signed into law by the governor. Procedurally, if a bill is sent to a subcommittee, it’s a very strong indication it’s going nowhere. In fact, most bills filed are done so with no intent of passing it but instead to cynically use in their next campaign ad or brochure. Rep. Ford is running for mayor and if he has any chance (arguably none from my standpoint), he must maintain his “base.” That is the “community” or whatever else you may wanna call it. By sponsoring this bill he can now go to the black electoral and say “look what I did - I sponsored a bill that would ...blah blah blah.” With no intention of actually passing it. Smart politicians manipulate the system to their advantage. Everyone else should be smart enough to differentiate what’s actually going on. Btw there are enough law and order legislators in the current general assembly to make sure something like this doesn’t actually pass.

From the 4th: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated".

Best news I have seen here in a long time. It's about time the rest of the CPD gets on the fetal express because it's about to pass you by and all them REAL POLICE will be getting suspended, fired or going to prison. The days of the working police are over, you are not out there doing a noble job for a grateful community, you are just getting BS numbers for bosses that will sell you out in a minute. Give them nothing and expect nothing in return, you don't owe anyone and it's a good feeling. I barely respond to my jobs, write maybe one parker a month and go home stress free. Sitting watching Netflix, playing games and eating all while watching crime spiral out of control. It's good to be a DOG, I make as much as the working police ( take all them SAVM, VRI and CTA) without the nonsense. Being the real police/ working police is for SUCKERS!

On November 29, 2012, Ford was indicted on charges of bank fraud alleging he provided misleading evidence to obtain a $500,000 extension on a line of credit. The charges state he used the money for personal expenses rather than rehabilitating an owned property, as stated in the loan documentation.[1] On August 4, 2014, all 17 felony counts of bank fraud and false information against Ford were dropped by federal prosecutors in exchange for his pleading guilty to a single misdemeanor income tax charge, and Ford's trial was removed from the federal docket.

Why are we paying you. Hire a bunch of file clerks to go any crime scene and fill out paperwork a $20/hr job. Predict a big manpower cut in next budget if this passes who needs a "12,000" man police force standing around or sleeping in their cars. Be very careful what you wish for. As to the politicians being the stupidest I challenge tat comment. It is the voters that keep these people in power that are the stupid ones.

What these political idiots don't realize (or maybe they do) is they will eventually create a George Orwell 1984 society, one that you see currently taking shaping in China.

I hope you are kidding. You are correct in a sense that state laws can be made more restrictive that federal laws when it comes to criminal statues like as if federal law states that legal speed limit is 70, a state can make its speed limit 60. I’m pretty sure a state cannot change a Supreme Court ruling.

No, the state, under the policing powers of the tenth amendment, can prove higher but not lower protection.

So, yes they can do this.

What is does mean is that officers who apply the Maranda standard will not be sued un 1983 inasmuch as the federal constitution has not been offended.

Who cares? The democrats think that people who use narcotics are victims; unwed motherhood should be celebrated. Obama has moved the ghetto into what had been nice, middle class neighborhoods.

Except, they, the shitheads, will never see it coming. Because, they, the shitheads, still will never think it will come from where they are sure it never comes, sure because of the presence of police, the police who are no longer present.

Lets think of this from the liberal's point of view: If the suspected criminals need to give consent to be arrested, an extension of this proposed law as would be logical to soon come, then all the hardship of arresting persons would be less since there would be less arrests. Nice!

If there is no consent to be arrested, no arrest can occur. Prior to that, a law such as this idea from Ford just makes sure that no police work can be done hence the likelihood of fewer arrests even being considered will result. Sweet!

With no arrests, there will be no crime! No crime means a happy and safe world with unicorn magic rainbow farts! Global warming can also be solved and all hate and harm will vanish too, somehow.

THINK ABOUT IT: If it were illegal to kill anyone, no one would have to fear getting murdered... MAGIC! There ought to be a law!

A couple people have pointed out that just because a bill is introduced does not mean it is going anywhere. That's true, and in this case, it probably is an effort by Ford to impress his base (he apparently honestly believes he has a chance in the mayoral race). However, the mere fact that this got introduced, and the fact that there are no doubt some legislators who think "great idea--we should do that" is terrifying. The Dems have a supermajority in the house and senate and own the governors mansion for the next 4 years. This is the type of shit that could (could, not will, but could) get through. All bets are off at this point, and any citizen who is even remotely concerned with public safety issues should be very worried about this.

I’m retired CPD after 32 years and this number seems high to me. Don’t ever remember thinking about leaving to becoming a firefighter or even hearing about too many guys that switched back then but I guess it’s a sign of the times. It’s a shame what’s happening to our proud profession, but I guess the handwriting has been on the wall for awhile now.

Can they make a law more restrictive than that allowed by a US Supreme Court ruling?Can they make a law more restrictive than that allowed by a US Supreme Court ruling?

Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968), was a decision by the United States Supreme Court which held that the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizures is not violated when a police officer stops a suspect on the street and frisks him or her without probable cause to arrest, if the police officer has a reasonable suspicion that the person has committed, is committing, or is about to commit a crime and has a reasonable belief that the person "may be armed and presently dangerous."

For their own protection, after a person has been stopped, police may perform a quick surface search of the person's outer clothing for weapons if they have reasonable suspicion that the person stopped is armed. This reasonable suspicion must be based on "specific and articulable facts" and not merely upon an officer's hunch. This permitted police action has subsequently been referred to in short as a "stop and frisk," or simply a "Terry frisk".

This crap and I hope it’s not true, but I worked 12 years on midnights since 30Apr01. Your driving alone, with a person that has no time, a Copper you’d rather not work with, and so on. The Job is a hard job. The Civilian that believes we spend all our time in D&D I’d love to discuss that topic with them.
Recently I heard “EVERY TIME” a Copper draws he/she has to fill out paperwork. If that’s true the Essential Service that’s already dangerous will be that much more dangerous. Who’s gonna cover my Beat while I’m writing why I feel I’m in defense of my Life. When I first got on the deal was draw when you feel it’s a necessary. Maybe you saw something the others didn’t. It was something I never thought about so as to make drawing one’s weapon reflexive. This was taught in 026 by the way. Cleaning, field stripping, practice with snap caps so your draw comes out like a professional. Off target, off trigger, but God Forbid it’s on target, on trigger I don’t want a trivial extra thought in there.
Remember that cat lover Fed Weiss? Outdoor roll call in 006 and he heads for the hills? We were duped cuz he was as much a Street Cop as “Irion Mike” Ryan.
The Police Officer shouldn’t be questioned as to why he drew his weapon. It’ll hurt those I truly respect, The Street Copper.
Robert Plant a few years back brought a guitar in Guitar Center for tuning. GC called A/3 to simply report it. I’m sure if Jimmy Page is in your Band he may have taught The Rock God how to tune his own guitar. Turns out “Fool in the Rain” vocalist actually liked Wrigleyville. So he asked GC 2 do it.
We found Mr. Plant and I drew my weapon. The last thing I wanted to do in front of ANYONE in Led Zeppelin, but I heard that whistle. U know the whistle. The one that says knock him out and take his shit.
Mr. Plant was given a full explanation of why he had to see that.
We offered Led Zep’s Lead Singer a ride to which he said yes. While in the car Mr. Plant wanted to know what it’s like to be a Cop in Chicago? We traded him. What was it like to play with Bonzo? Mr. Plant told us the reverb on “When the Levee Breaks” was by pure accident. They cleared everything out of the mansion they used to record and the living room created a natural reverb. Zeppelin didn’t know until late in the Album.
Hell Naw will something happen to Mr. Plant while we were up there.
He spoke of his OWN Country taxing him at an absurd amount if he graces the shores while his Wife was sick and his five year old boy was fighting for his Life which eventually lost.
C/O Kenny was Bono’s guide when Chicago had U2’s Day. They are the exact same age. Kenny, as decent as he was, couldn’t name one U2 Song.
We invited Them, not the other way around. You’d think just one U2 Song, but nada

Interesting thing about requiring police officers to obtain their own liability insurance is that it is less likely that a private insurance company will roll over and play dead in defending themselves and their officer client. That could limit the "ghetto" lottery, not a good thing for the "community."

Not that easy as it seems. City doesn’t always just roll over and play dead. They settle cases to prevent a larger liability The way juries are giving away judgements it not always prudent to leave it in a jury’s hands

"The Illinois Legislature has overruled and nullified
the United States Supreme Court?"

No, the state, under the policing powers of the tenth amendment,
can prove higher but not lower protection.

So, yes they can do this..."

2/25/2019 11:08:00 AM


Perhaps not overruled and nullified...

But this is definitely NOT a case of higher protection.

Given the clear and apparent danger it poses,
it is plainly a deliberate diminishment of said protection.

LaFord's legislation is a direct endangerment
to the public peace, safety and well being.

A direct subversion of the SCOTUS ruling
on Terry vs. Ohio.

You cannot "carve out" parts of SCOTUS rulings
to not abide by because of loyalty to an aggrieved,
politically weaponized constituency.

If such were the case, this entire nation
would fall into chaos as every state legislature
will have air/opportunity to pick and choose which
laws, rulings and perhaps even Constitutional
Amendments they want to abide by or not.

This slope is slippery...

My kid just got hired by CFD and will be in the class starting March 1st. He told me that out of the 85 recruits present for final processing 11 of them are currently CPD and another 4 coppers from outside agencies. I’m retired CPD after 32 years and this number seems high to me. Don’t ever remember thinking about leaving to becoming a firefighter or even hearing about too many guys that switched back then but I guess it’s a sign of the times. It’s a shame what’s happening to our proud profession, but I guess the handwriting has been on the wall for awhile now. Stay safe and cope with the changes that are coming the best you can remember it’s only a paycheck.

Been going on for a long time. Only reason it’s not worse is that the CFD doesn’t hire that often. Kids on the job and he knows at least 7 that made the move and said he hasn’t heard of anyone having the opportunity to transfer to the CFD, didn’t It’s like winning the lottery

Hmmmmmmm,

2) Disarm the the people,

4) One party rule,
and
5) Weaponize the Government (IRS, EPA) against it's own citizens.
Might just work, I don't think it's ever been tried before.... But I'll have to ask my wife, she was born in '63 (but looks like she was born in '64) in Poland.
Too bad her Grandfather isn't around either, he was last seen on a train to Auschwitz.
Those who cannot see the parallels between Fascism/Socialism and our current crop of "Social Justice Warriors" and Progressives have no business wasting air on breathing.
I suppose if they ever stooped to being educated there might be a sliver of hope but considering the current state of the taxpayer funded CPS/CTU Babysitting Service there's about as much of chance of that happening as there is of a Liberal admitting they are wrong.
Think about it... have you EVER heard a Liberal/Progressive say "sorry," "I didn't know that" or "I was wrong?" In fact, I would bet the ONLY one who can truthfully answer "yes, I have" to that question is the actress Marlee Matlin.

I hope you are kidding. You are correct in a sense that state laws can be made more restrictive that federal laws when it comes to criminal statues like as if federal law states that legal speed limit is 70, a state can make its speed limit 60. I’m pretty sure a state cannot change a Supreme Court ruling.

3)the 14th amendment is clear that all the rights, privileges, and immunities contained in the Federal Constitution apply to the states as well.

Not true, see Barron v Baltimore and The Stockard case, the Bill of Rights was not applicable to the States, parts of the Bill of Rights are not still applicable to the States even after selective incorporation (such as grand jury indictments).

I disagree with you. Outside of cook county and especially outside of Illinois, life is different for law enforcement. There are numerous states where police are respected and supported. Avoid major cities and look at smaller towns or even state agencies.I retired from CPD and traveled the country. Visiting towns outside of cities seemed like a different world. Police are supported. You can remain fetal in Chicago and survive. Or take a chance and look for other opportunities.

More than likely the ASA. They hold their cases until the last minute. Wasn’t a court given at your last court appearance in the case
Had it happen to me a few times, watch commander excused me
Easy was to handle it is to call the ASA and explain the late notification and ask them to get a continuance. They are good about that especially if it’s a late notification. Also if the ASA doesn’t complain there is no court deviance

The reporter on Tonight, wrote a book on R Kelly and said he is the worst mass sexual criminal in Chicago history with a documented 48 victims on the South side of Chicago and even more in other states. He keeps getting away with it. He pays off the mothers and even now has underage girls with him along with their mothers. And, he said NY state is investigating Kelly and Foxx refuses to cooperate. I suspect he will beat this current case. The video is very old, one victim refuses to cooperate.

I don't think Ford realizes this works both ways.
Sure the police would not be able to stop members of the "community" from committing crime.
But the police also could not stop armed citizens from dealing with the "community".
I think it would be a fair trade.
As it is "community" members either walk or get probation.
There wouldn't be much of a change if you stopped catching them before they were later released.
However once word got out that the currently law abiding victims of these jack offs could take care of business, I think the problem would take care of its self.
