I am so pissed. I got a letter from my husband in prison and he was down or whatever....I'm pissed about the drug sentencing laws....

There is a man who was just released from the prison that my husband is in. This guy had kidnapped and raped a girl and cut her arms off because she was fighting back. He got the same length of sentence that my husband did. How is this possible? HOW???

Now this guy is paroled, he is wandering the streets, probably scoping out his next victim. I mean, he CUT someone's ARMS OFF. My husband was growing some freaking plants in some pots.

I know lots of people here are anti-drug, which is good. Personally I differentiate pot from other drugs. It's simply not the same as coke or heroin or meth or speed or ecstasy. I just don't see how this can be. I don't see how people can let this happen. I feel so angry about this.

Yes, he grew pot. Yes, it is illegal. But how is it the same level of severity as raping someone and cutting their arms off? ARGH.

Hi Cici,

It does not seem fair and just. Hard to believe! I'm sorry you are having to go through this. I think you are justified in feeling anger. I wish there were something else I could say. Just know we are here for you.

Hugs,

Sunny

Hi there Cici. Gosh sweetie sounds like things are really rough right now. I wish I knew what to say. I really don't I am at a loss for words. I do want to say I am here to listen if you need to talk more. And I can understand like Sunny said why you would feel this way. I am sending hugs your way.

Hi Cici,

Im sorry to hear that, and I agree with you - that is bullshit. I dont smoke it now, but I dont even consider pot to be even anywhere near as harmful as coke, meth, heroin, etc. Its harmless. It shouldnt be illegal. Alcohol causes way more problems than marijuana, and its legal.

And the fact that another inmate who brutallized a girl like that is free before your husband is ridiculous. It shows a serious fundamental flaw in the criminal justice system. I believe that someone who did something like that should have been put to death. Personally, if someone did that to my family or someone I love, I would literally kill him.

Its Bullshit, and that pisses me off to.

The justice system is bullshit. If someone did something like that to one of my daughters, they would die. No if's and's or but's, they would suffer so bad they would wish they were dead and I would make them die the most painful and nightmarish way possible. That is bullshit with him getting out before your husband, the guy shouldn't even be getting out at all!

You know, I used to be a total libertarian about drugs, I certainly believe that people should not be getting as long of a sentence as rape offenders (or even at all). Our system is so screwed up. I can understand why heroin, crack, etc is illegal because it ruins so many lives and turns so many people into criminals, but it's too much. The laws in this country against pot are ridiculous. I feel for you. He should not be in there for this sentence. I'm not sure what the answer is for drugs, but what we have now is not working.

thanks guys...it is really sick. not just the comparion, but even the sheer fact that this guy who brutalized and killed women is actually free right now, walking around the streets of Montgomery.

i thought it was hard to believe as well, but i heard the story from a fellow inmate, who even told me the guy's name.

Cici,

Well I'm curious then. Does he have to register as a sex offender?

i'm sure he does, since that is the law. but i still think that is bullcrap. I was raped, and never got the balls to do anything about it, and i will forever feel guilty because i might have put other women in danger because i was young and stupid and afraid....

but the sentencing laws for rape are absurd. i am pro-chemical castration.
