However, a return he was gonna do something I rose and fell on my own merit at that. That would be it. I also thought The murderer must be the worst crime, because we will do the worst to you. If you cannot, it will put you in prison forever or we will kill you. So I got in my career to go to the homicide. I got there then. Fortunately, I was kind of good and I stayed Then I loved her mother ass.

It was never fit. The nebula. I hear you might be the wrong person to ask this, but I'm a believer in restorative justice when it comes to probably non violent crimes.
You know somebody steals my car. I want them to replace my car. I dont want them to sit in prison for five years. A do you have any thoughts on restorative justice. There are many people who are in prison or should be in prison who had been arrested. True silly things give too much of a penalty. One of the girls mistakes were made as a nation is the war on drugs were got these extended sentences for young men who. Sold american cigarettes that are buddy and one of getting twenty years or in a send them a gladiators? What are we doing that for what we're doing doesn't work.
So obviously we need to change what we're doing present as a place that it should be reserved for those who were to violent and to unpredictable to be among us, and there are a number of votes. The property criminals perhaps can review period rehabilitate, can stop there feeling words, but ultimately they hurt anybody and they don't intend ever heard of you, but they are just a thief. Do you have to lock him up forever? don't know. If I can be your house and I stole everything you on and then I saw you. How can I took it to California and I sold everything you own? A black market, including the trial, and then I got arrested. I probably would do a danger, though, not probably come thereafter, that drug gas, because there's a war on drugs,
ready for drug people. Why Gerardi essentially do that we should do it all, and yet we do it repent, they repeated, It is the definition and Saturday a sick people in the same thing, unexpected results. There is over five million people in prison and the scattered in prison where we have it. What do we have shops, organised crime, wretchedly sure sure. So, what's not working her something crescent consume, it I've always had a issue when, if I'm selling drugs out o my vehicle law enforcement, can impounding com, escape my vehicle and then sell it and use the money and the auction for their police budget. But if right, if I, murder people out of my vehicle, you get to see my vehicle and keep it.
It's all in the instrument of there was ever written. Regarding the war on drugs, we lost a long time ago. Name as it is, Over and we lost, but the laws or Solana books and is still in force. It is weird me cause, I absolutely we see the value of law enforcement, I absolutely support them. When it comes to taking d, mammals off the street that are going to murder people, but the way the laws are written. Nick, it's very frustrating sometimes Of course, it is frustrating for the place as well as frustrating for places parliament with it. We can only do what the law permits us to do we'd all right laws. We just enforce them. Even law. I do not agree with you. Don't have any choice that we have some level of choices by not addressing some of the first book
A lot of browsers do that there is something called the letter and the Spirit of the law. Policemen note that meant that, as you know, after rest, everybody but people get arrested and then they get hammered by a system designed, to hammer them, because it is consistent with the government's policy of orphan drugs, because no one wants to admit there were lost your ambrosch thirty forty years ago.

Russia, somebody, rock, ok or speed, or anything else is badly. They survive usually on street. Putting him in prison isn't meaningful he's replace before he gets to the position by another. There also needs to survive and picks up. I saw something the same trust her throughout the order to stop the supply of her mother. Did that and we as a society or not travel, and so what we have decided is that rehabilitation, mental health, employment, counseling public education, all those things are just too expensive by God and too complicated and we're too cheap to from them. So we'll just have the police handle all of that. They will respond to the mental health patient out of control. They are
random tremor crisis at the public building they'll do all of that, because whether the place even other nerve and trained to do, they will probably do it better. And then they will suffer the slings and arrows of press running down something there. Whenever designed to do in the first place. How did you I could have set it better, because when I did my police right, along which I I think, every should do one of those, because it's very I hoping that the calls that we had to go on half of them were so stupid and then the other half were there's a body, and and a lake and
We were literally just putting up tape on the roads unit, the police tape, so cars wouldn't drive by waiting for the people to come recover the body on the way- and I- and I just think you know- there's fifteen cops here- to put up police tape, couldn't baby do something else and by that's what they're assigned to do that on the side was the bodies rediscover about asked the built in and let the Valentine's day message here comes the press.
