mrjsiah,

You failed to answer the questions. Come on Mr. Criminal Justice major.

I believe entitlement is a major factor in the decay of morals and personal responsibility. Entitlement is the food that feeds the criminal and drug fire in Sandusky. I believe Sandusky is the center point of entitlement in the county.

Hopefully that clarifies my stand for you.

Now what about you. Please give us your educated outlook on how the problem, that a blind man can see, started, grew and prospered in Sandusky.

Mutt,

I totally agree its cumulative. My belief is that we are in our third generation of family entitlement and starting our fourth. We have thrown billions of dollars at a problem with minimal success. Free education, free food, free housing, free transportation, free utilities and free cell phones have not solved the problem.

What group of people do criminals center their attacks against? The entitlement crowd? Why's that? No self worth, no responsibility or no education are a few reasons. I've done my time trying to help but some people are accustom through generations to expecting value without effort.

So who do you want to blame for 45 kids not graduating? The people who provide the free education?

I now believe in a "hand up" not a "hand out". You have to prove yourself first before I participate. The old way of "free" did not work and hasn't for generations.

You want to get rid of crime and drugs? Stop the entitlement in the county. Those under the "entitlement spell" will move to the free money and the criminals will follow.

Donut,

There is a simple answer to crime and it doesn't cost us a penny. In fact, the opposite, it will save us billions. Insist on high school graduation and get rid of the lifetime felony tag. Neither cost anything and completely turn around crime and poverty.

donutshopguy

Mutt,

Please explain "insist on high school graduation". Are you suggestion we dummy-down so all can graduate? Are you suggesting kids beyond 18 years old must stay until they graduate?

On the lifetime felony tag are you saying murderers and child rapists should not have to carry their previous misdeeds?

I don't follow how these two events will completely turn around crime and poverty. Please expand your thoughts as to enlighten some of us who are suspect of the claim.

Donut,

I'm not suggesting dumbing down graduation requirements. Yes, a kid should be able to continue in the school system until he graduates regardless of his age. No dropout permissions.

The biggest problem ex-cons face in getting a job is having to declare that they are felons. If they've done their time that should be the end of it. Murderers, rapists, and molesters excluded.

Job skills turn around crime and poverty.

Mutt,

I agree with education as the tool out of entitlement. But how do you force someone at 18 to finish high school?

Don't agree with the dropping of the felony label. Especially for your three above mentioned classification. The public should be aware of the above mentioned ex-cons living and working in their community.

Education and job skills are a personal responsibility. The vehicle to obtain both are available to all young children by their community. Whether they use those opportunities is up to them. You can provide the opportunity, you can't pre-establish the outcome.

Donut,

-- More than 30 percent of Americans are arrested by age 23.

-- One of 15 Americans will be incarcerated in their lifetime.

-- 68 percent of state prison inmates are dropouts.

How bad does it have to get before we are willing to graduate every kid with an education and job skills?

How bad does it have to get before we are willing to employ someone with a felony?

We need to throw away the rule book that hasn't worked for the last 50 years.

"...willing to graduate every kid with an education and job skill?"

How do you force them to participate? They have no inclination to better themselves.
Your argument is weak.

donutshopguy

Mutt,

Does having a speeding ticket falls under you 30% arrest number?

Being in jail does not make you a felon or a repeat offender.

I believe 68% of state prison inmates are dropouts. What percentage of Americans are in prison right now ? Are we talking 1% or 5% ?

How do you graduate every kid? Do we put them in education prison? What value is a degree everyone is given no matter of ability? Why would any business value this degree?

There are businesses that hire felons. Might not be the greatest job but jobs are available when business is good. During hard times businesses have the ability to hire the best of the people available. Felons are not always the best available.

Our community provides a good free public education if you choose to accept the work needed to obtain that degree. It's our responsibility to provide the opportunity not predetermine the results. Personal responsibility for your education and being a law abiding citizen are up to the individual.

there's more,

-- Dropouts make up nearly half the heads of households on welfare.

-- In the U.S., high school dropouts commit about 75 percent of crimes.

-- America’s high school graduation rate ranks 19th in the world. (Forty years ago, we were number one.)

-- Dropouts from the Class of 2010 alone will cost the nation more than $337 billion in lost wages over the course of their lifetimes.

-- If the United States‘ likely dropouts from the Class of 2006 had graduated, the nation could have saved more than $17 billion in Medicaid and expenditures for uninsured health care over the course of those young people‘s lifetimes.

NOBODY WANTS TO BE A DROPOUT.

So, how do we force kids to stay in school? That's pretty simple really, we make graduation mandatory. We change the age of compulsory education from 6 to 18 to 6 to 21 or older if enrolled. We do away with dropout permissions entirely--currently a kid can dropout in Ohio as young as 14.

We dump Special Ed and instead have subject tutors available to all kids that need tutoring. Nobody likes the Special Ed tag.

We subsidize industry to work with high schools in OJT programs--here is where we leave no kid behind. (In other words we pay kids to stay in school.)

And, finally, we allow dropouts regardless of age to re-enroll in high school to get their education and job skills.

Instead of taking out your calculator to define the difference between Sandusky and Detroit..(yawn)Why can't you just believe in PERSONAL responsibility..down to entitlements and blah, blah! The worm killed another human..HE DID IT!! Not the hospital, NOT the SPD, not his worthless DADDY?? HE DID IT!! The oxygen-thief needs to get strapped to a table, have the IV inserted then let them press the buttons!! Let the rest of his "family" watch and his "friends",and then picture their own futures!! I believe that a TRUE example has yet to be part of this picture! Now it's TIME!!

donutshopguy

allrhetoricanway,

You wish to be specific to this exact crime. I have no problem with that or the punishment your prescribe.

Some of us are looking at a bigger picture. We are discussing the moral breakdown in our society that this specific incident springs from.

How did it start? Can it be stopped? What works and doesn't work ?

allrhetoricanyway

Wow! I am sure that I would PRESCRIBE (subscribe) to a much LARGER and surely more INTELLIGENT group of individuals before I had a real meaningful discussion regarding the ill and decline of our city. This comment section is truly to release your "knee-jerk" reaction to the atrocities that happen everyday in this small-minded, well-versed splay of mindless drivel! To get to the heart ....will NEVER happen here! Everyone is already stuck deep in their muddy shoes and will not walk up to an Officer to shake their hand, walk in to court and ask what they can do, will not risk their LIVES or lively-hood to make a change!! So you RICKROSS can talk till you go mute...but you'll NEVER make a change on this SECTION of NOTHING!

BytheBy

You consider yourself one of the "intelligent" people?

My knee-jerk reaction is to laugh and laugh and laugh at you.

allrhetoricanyway

Ditto! My example well displayed..Thank You! More mindless drivel!

For some their only interest in education is voting down school levies and building bigger prisons with lifetime sentencing. It is lifetime when we get out and repeat and are re-incarcerated.

Donut,

My replies are in [].

Does having a speeding ticket falls under you 30% arrest number? [no traffic]

Being in jail does not make you a felon or a repeat offender. [stats are for state and Federal prisons--I don't think misdemeanor offenders go to state or Federal prisons]

I believe 68% of state prison inmates are dropouts. What percentage of Americans are in prison right now ? Are we talking 1% or 5% ? [less than 1%]

How do you graduate every kid? Do we put them in education prison? What value is a degree everyone is given no matter of ability? Why would any business value this degree? [we pay kids to graduate] [some will end up in juvy--they already do] [degree isn't dumbed down] [degree isn't dumbed down]

There are businesses that hire felons. Might not be the greatest job but jobs are available when business is good. During hard times businesses have the ability to hire the best of the people available. Felons are not always the best available. [what a kid does young shouldn't haunt him forever] [don't underestimate the ability of felons]

Our community provides a good free public education if you choose to accept the work needed to obtain that degree. It's our responsibility to provide the opportunity not predetermine the results. Personal responsibility for your education and being a law abiding citizen are up to the individual. [When a remedy to crime and poverty doesn't cost us anything and can save us billions--trillions, it's worthy of trying.]

I blame George Bush.
