Drugs seem to be at the root of a lot of recent crap

Makes me wonder if we don't need a whole different system to treat drug offenses with mandatory rehab rather than fines and jail. I keep seeing crimes in the news that are clearly being committed either to pay for drugs or as a result of people who are too drug-addled to know right from wrong (this case likely being the latter.)

Inconceivable!

But that would require opening sanitariums again. The whole outpatient social work paper pusher,methadone clinic, and prison industrial complexes would lose so much money if they had to compete with another type of facility!

Where would we even build them? Mayors and governors have made sure all the old hospitals were sold off to developer buddies for pittances a long time ago.

So does being from NH

I suppose it's not all that surprising that NH sleezebags and petty criminals come to MA to work too.

New Hampshire is our Mexico: We go there for vacation and they come here to work.

Speaking as a former Manchvegan …

I lived in Manchvegas for a couple of years before coming here, and I have no plans to return, nearly a decade later. (I grew up in Nashua, which is somewhat less sleazy. Somewhat.)

I was not surprised at all to see that a gentleman arrested for perverted and indecent behaviour was from Manchester. I lived there long enough to expect that one.
