More about the Allen-Winburn "Rapid Purge" plan

Want to know more about that plan by Judge Nadine Allen and Charlie Winburn to delete old warrants?

Here's the proposal.

Much too recent for my latest conviction !

I don't recall another sting where I was entrapped by your foot-tapping, wRong wingnut whacko under cover crony in the airport restroom when I hand waved , pick-me, under the partition ?

PATHETIC 'family values' !

This is simply a terrible idea with these two playing politics. The fact is this would not do much if anything for jail space, and their cost savings are drastically inflated because these cases would not go to trial if they are minor charges like they claim. This sends the wrong message to our community about our stance on crime and is absolutely the equivalent to amnesty! Not a smart move for a judge.

Anonymous 7:26PM says "HAD ENOUGH, VOTE DEMOCRAT 2008 !"

What he or she really means is that they are brain dead and would like it very much if you were to self-lobotomize and vote Democrat too!

Of course that is to make a bad situation worse, but that is what being a Democrat is all about after all.

I couldn't agree more with anon @ 7:19 a.m. THIS IS AMNESTY for criminal offenses if you can disappear for 7 years.

The money savings argument is nonsense and is NOT justified by the facts. Just because Winburn and lazy Nadine say it, doesn't make it so. Look carefully at the plan.

Under this ridiculous proposal, a decent law abiding citizen who pays his speeding ticket timely gets punished. The offender passing through town who doesn't pay his citation can wait 7 years and have that warrant erased?

Or, try this example. Guy commits a theft. The victim SHOWS UP TO COURT and the Defendant does not. A warrant gets issued for the Defendants arrest because he failed to show. The victim, however, waited in a long line to get into the courthouse, took time away from work, and waited patiently in the courtroom. The alleged criminal skips court. If he can manage to disappear for 7 years, HE WALKS AWAY SCOTT-FREE. That's perverted justice!!

This deal is to alleviate the docket of one of the laziest Judge's in the courthouse. Municipal Court judges work 4-5 hours per day on a bad day. It is the easiest job in the world that pays 6 figures plus.

The "savings" argument is feckless and without support in the facts.

I HOPE that the sensible judges put a stop to this nonsense.

Charlie is as dumb as the day is long. I wonder who helped him out.

So let me get this right,
If I write the Judge, a bad check, its ok as long as I can stay on the run and skirt the law.

This sounds like fantastic progress towards the city I would want to live in. Never ever thought I would agree with the windbag but I do. We have an out of control prosecutor and sherrif, it's time for the commonsence to be heard.

after seven years most of these crimes are past their statute of limitations anyway, and can't be prosecuted. Yet when the individuals are picked up on an old warrent, they still have to work their way through the Justice system, at taxpayer costs, only to be let off in the end.

How 'bout we "rapid purge" Winburn...

I commit a crime, and get off.

I default on my mortgage, and get bailed out.

I have children I can't afford, and get subsidies.

Where the hell is the incentive to be responsible for oneself and accountable for the consequences of our actions?

8:01 You need to get with it. Quit your job, go on Welfare and Food Stamps and, maybe, live at the Banks. Just think, gazing at the river all day.
The democrats are going to tax the highly educated and productive to pay for those that feel "entitled".
Move some of your money offshore before the election and protect yourself.

....I run my multi-billion dollar bank into the ground with irresponsible investments (Bear Stearns), and I get bailed out by the taxpayers at the cost of $30 Billion, and the CEO still gets to keep his $100 million 'bonus'.

That's the republican socialism for Wall Street. No help for homeowners scammed on their mortgage, handouts for Big Business.

at 12:59 PM, April 21, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I run my multi million dollar business efficiently, take risks, and succeed after long hours of effort and angst.
Democrat wealth redistribution raises my tax on my healthy income to support free give-aways.
I question myself why should I work so hard and I sell my business. Liberals have killed the America I learned about in school.

Pretend-rich Mr. Wingnut,

Please sell your 'business' and leave the Country.

America, love it or leave it.

Yes, we are going to redistribute the wealth of the upper 2% ultra rich, who are paying a mere 17% in income taxes, while the middle class pays 30% of their income in taxes.

It's time to for the rich to pay the bill for their 8 year long non-stop party. it's time to face the music and dance.

Don't worry Mr. Wingnut, it doesn't effect you. Your nothing but a Linder/Farmer syncophant and toadie. I doubt that you even make $30,000 a year.

Keep dreaming though, mayber Uncle Carl will throw you some scraps off of his table.

There may be trouble ahead
But while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill
And while we still
Have the chance
Let's face the music and dance

We'll be without the moon
Humming a diff'rent tune
And then

There may be teardrops to shed
So while there's moonlight and music
And love and romance
Let's face the music and dance
Let's face the music and dance

Capell should face the music because 92 grand isn't living the high life.
The Dems will never be able to pull off their promises.

Actually he is a foot-tapping, wRong wingnut whacko, G-rand O-ld P-edophile doing all the ranch hand jobs at the 'switch-hitter, black farm' !

PATHETIC 'family values' !

3:51 says vote Dem; I'll cancel his vote.

$92,000 makes me solidly Middle Class. Combined with my Wife's $135,000, it makes us Upper-Middle class.

It's certainly more than Jeff Capell makes. That's why he is still driving that black '99 Monte Carlo. Sweet ride, Jeff!

The median American household income for 2007 was 48,000.

Many European nations have a higher median income these days, sadly. Middle Class wages have not only been completely stagnant for 8 years, they have declined by nearly 6%. Meanwhile the rich have become much richer.

I work for an International company and I've never seen a European turn down an opportunity to relocate to the US. Does that tell you anything?

Maybe CSI could use the "Rapid Purge" plan and his head would pop out of his rump?

at 12:30 PM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

Just read the proposal: I love the part about "eliminating racial disparities" and "reducing racial profiling" as benefits of purging warrants.

Talk about putting lipstick on a pig.

Or closing the barn door after the horse escapes.

Pick your cliche'd metaphor. The only "problem" this solves is that of scofflaws being on the lam and maybe not sleeping as well at night as they might.

Are you kidding 9:56? I work for P&G and the Europeans who work for us can't get out of this Country fast enough. the dollar is so worthless that they can't pay their bills with them.

at 1:24 PM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm not kidding you Bill. We convert dollar sales in the US into Euros for the Board in Germany. (not good)
When a European comes here, we convert their compensation from Euros to dollars. (good)
I can't believe P&G doesn't follow the same approach. No wonder you can't keep the Europeans.

at 11:50 PM, April 22, 2008 Anonymous Bill said...

P&&G does not do this. They pay in local currency, and ensure that the ex-pat makes a comparable amount in relation to the local cost of living.

It costs less to live in Cincinnati than it does in Paris, Berlin or London. At $1.60 dollar/euro, the ex-pat's cannot live here and pay their credit card, loans and other bills back home. The dollar is simply worthless.

at 10:20 AM, April 23, 2008 Anonymous Anonymous said...

P&G needs to re-evaluate ex-pat compensation or you'll never keep people here.
It's not fair to penalize an employee due to currency rate.
Europeans are taking vacations in the US because of the bargains with the Euro's current strength.
Your company seems to be ignoring that.

Whattya want me to do about it?? It's not my problem. It means more jobs for locals, anyway.

It appears that cincycappel and cheviot idiot are one in the same. Both make no sense and Cheviot Authority continues to eat their lunch everytime either one posts.
