Re: “Health Matters

Wake up Arizona! The solution is to stop the ridiculous jailing of citizens. In other words use the jails for what they were designed for. Removing dangers to society. Most of the people in jails are not there because they are a danger to society. Punishment for breaking the law shoud be something that is productive to society, not a drain on society. A good example is "resisting arrest" a class six felony. It is defined as "the officer's discretion". Another example is "trafficking stolen goods". This is when you pawn something that you were not aware had been stolen, but is defined as you "should have known it was stolen". This little beauty carries a third degree felony (a whopping four year prison sentence or possibly more if you have a previous felony such as "resisting arrest" that was determined by the personality of the arresting officer, not any specific guideline). Now when these people, who have beeen removed from working and paying taxes, get out of jail or prison are we saying they do not deserve to have basic health care? Maybe making laws that are more reasonbly by definition, would make for less prisoners, which in turn would provide more money for health coverage for all of its citizens. Remember by the time these people are jailed or imprisoned that the cost of law enforcement, defense, prosecution and incarceration is incredibily expensive; and, then ask yourself if these crimes are necessarily worth all that? Something or someone has to give somewhere. The best approach would be a more humanistic approach.
