To: Leo Savage you know i used to think why not legalize drugs. but then i became a cop and what an education it has been. i wonder if the people who want to legalize drugs have adicts slaming drugs into their arms in front of their kids who are out playing. the first time i went for a walk through a housing projectn i had a six year old little boy walk up and hand me a used hypodermic needle. the boy said sir i found this. how many of you have your kids finding needles in their front yard. or watch as the addicts inject themselves in the car ports, or watch the drug dealers sale their drugs. unfortunatly i think most of you live in their nice safe houses in your nice safe nieghbor hoods. you can sit around and think of all these nice little ideas for other people to live by. when i have some of these parents who well tell me the only time they feel safe is when i am out in front of their house i know you are wrong. these parents thank me for being there and arresting all the drug dealers and users i can. of course they usually only talk to me when they think no one is watching. they don't want to be killed either. now i know you are going to say something about a rehabilitaion center. you can't make someone get off drugs they have to want to get off drugs. just ask AA. believe it or not very few really want to get off drugs. it's hard to understand why not but they seem to like living the life they do. evry addict i have ever talked to all have told me the same thing. rehab. doesn't work. the only thing that will work is wanting to quite and then doing it. if you force them to clean up in jail they get out and head right for the drugs because they like it. you always want to compare drugs to alcohol also. well don't becuase they don't. i would try to explain the fast differences but i don't think you really want to hear it. then you say people on drugs don't comit violent crimes. what a safe little secure life you must live. try this go down to the worst drug area you know of. rent a room and live there with your family for a while. let your kids see it all. in about a year tell me how you think other people should be forced to live with this shit jusr because you have an idea. face it bud some people are just born to be a wart on the ass on society. its what they do.
