Just taking cues from the President and Rahme Emanuel in Chicago. Walk softly and surrender. Let the dealers and users kill each other off. As long as the perps aren't white.

10 ways to bring down your property value "mandatory registration, most people want to live in a free society,Less government is in vogue. Mandatory registering 13,000 rentals is gonna be more administration & expensive, after it is done and taxes raised, What if we have the same problems? someone at city hall golfs with said landlord or they are afraid to cite because of a lawsuit. We have nuisance ordinance, 3 strikes rule, &code violations of 1,000$ a day. What happened to that law? Heard so much about during blighted review board days? The district attorney is the most powerful man in Lycoming county. Codes violations cant be issued? , Drug raids and fines cant happen, but the landlords now can save the day!!

You cannot let a criminal offender free, with a fine that they will not pay anyway. You cannot put them all in jail. This does not cure the problem. You must provide a deterrent that will make the person, at least think twice, before committing the crime again. The punishment must be enough to discourage others from committing a crime-Steve Hertel

Sooo, What do you suggest as a deterrent? Cut a hand off for stealing? Public flogging? Caining?
