Sky Soldier, Most people scream for harsh punishment until its someone they love. Then they want people to understand. Its a shame because while there is the kids do stupid things aspect, I suspect this case may go a bit deeper. Still, I don't think that we are addressing the issues that are really going on in our community regarding drugs, even where many of these kids get them, which often is medicine cabinets in their own homes. I think we all know people who every kind of pill imaginable. Is it any wonder when their kids get addicted or get involved in poor decision making?

I'm with you Sky. This isn't a neighborhood issue, it's societal. The fact of the matter is that the solutions require a total paradigm shift in laws, corrections, and economics. I'm idealist enough to wish for this and believe in the possibility of it, but old and cynical enough to feel like it's well beyond our grasp. Elsewhere on this board you'll find bitter arguments on whether the government has any place in disaster recovery. Or whether to support people dislodged by economic upheaval. The prospects of progressive and nuanced social policy is well nigh impossible in the age of Tea Party ascension. They'd have us left to fend for ourselves and then bleat and bray about the social destruction left in the wake. In the wise words of Anonymous, let's not hold our breath.

I am compelled to tell you, I do not know Andres Caceres, the accused. I have never met him, nor I am a ink own relative, nor do I know his family. What I know is prison will ruin him. No one has asked how he got his hand on controlled pharmaceuticals in that quantity. He didn't make them in his basement. The Suboxone was a four month supply.
