I surely didnt mean to take a criminal and toss them right into the military. Like my last sentence says "Military is a great idea also though I worry about the being commanded part. How they would adapt to that?? Ideas? Special class?" Because I know years ago judges would order someone into the military, or maybe strongly suggest it. I was only 18 at the time and had some cousins get those "orders". But both ended up getting kicked out for fighting and not able to listen obey orders of commanding officers. That is why my sentence is full of ??? because it would have to be a special group in the military that knew how to handle these young criminals, drug addicts, if that was even possible. I just believe that our system needs to be tougher on sentences for repeat older offenders of any crimes. With young guys getting into drugs, crime for more drugs try and find some alternative. Extended rehab etc. to try and get them off drugs and into a long term program to get a better start at life. We do not have many of those facilities anymore except Salvation Army and they have year long waiting lists. I have seen a few men come out of these programs and do fabulous, just to be given a chance. Thats it :)

Don’t worry folks, they will be back out on the streets shortly.

Brenda, even normal people can’t handle the military which kills us inside to witness the cavalier attitudes. We take our service seriously, and have no problem cutting down the slackers. So I do not think a thug being forced into the military would make it a life changing process.

Hope not Wolfie. Prefer they get a sentence worthy of their current crime and past history. Or if this is a first time violation that they be given a tough sentence to learn where this life will lead them. But also the help to overcome the drugs which will be a devil on their shoulder forever unless they do :/
