Probably can not eliminate all the problems, but we hope that the money makes a difference in at least one or two lives.

Have seen first hand, while working in a maximum security prison (during the Christmas season), the Salvation Army gift bags given to inmates. Granted the bag was mostly basic cosmetics, but it was still nauseating to witness. BTW, the majority of the "Santas" ringing those bells have sketchy histories at best.

Zero changes have been implemented. And here's another piece of valuable info. The CEO's of these Non Profits are greedier than heck. Their mission is to line their own personal wallet.

For many years the Salvation Army has been my only donation.

After seeing the SA is a contractor to house vermin being shipped out of State Prison, and that SA has structured the deal to absolve SA of any responsibility, they have seen the last Penny from me.

Next you should take on Motherhood and Apple Pie!

To 4:52AM ~~ Did you check the archives?

10:18, why nauseating? People who have committed crimes are no longer human beings deserving of compassion or mercy? My G-d tells me to forgive others as I would wish G-d to forgive me and that the way I treat even the worst of my brothers is how I treat G-d.
Bless you. May G-d show mercy to you and yours.
Merry Christmas this season. Jesus loves you.

To 12:36PM ~~ Based upon your liberal views, I'll bet you are OK with paroling people like Spengler, right? Even if you hammer grandma to death you should get another chance after doing your time? Look where THAT got us!!

Anonymous said...

Is it liberal to want people to be able to change and to help provide that opportunity? Better to get them to change than to spend more and more and more keeping them in jail after the commit still another crime, isn't it?

SCATS said...

To 6:28PM ~~ You can "want" ... "wish" ... or even "hope" violent, convicts change, but Spengler didn't. And neither did his peers in the mugshots on the front page ;)

Anonymous said...

6:28 You may hope for them to change, pray for them to change, or dream for them to change... but at the end of the day, it's a lost effort. If you choose to live by the words you preach, encourage them to live in your backyard, but you won't. As far as the high cost your referenced to keep the animals behind bars, I say do your homework: It's costing us 42k a year to keep one locked up, but that same one was costing you 25k a year sitting on welfare benefits (as the almost all are when not locked up). I'll happily pay the difference, and sleep safely at night.

So because of Spengler we assume every person convicted of a crime is to be punished and shunned for the rest of their life?

SCATS said...

To 9:47PM ~~ Apparently you missed the part where I referred to "violent convicts" and "his peers in the mugshots on the front page" ... Caruthers, Johnson and likely dozens of others.

So many of you have selective vision. I hope Santa brings you eyewear for Christmas.

This is 12:36 responding. Of course not, and I think that's a weird question.
Mercy and compassion for human beings doesn't preclude meting out just punishment for violating man's criminal laws.
You know, I'm sure, that Spengler was released by statute because he had served two-thirds of his maximum sentence, not because the parole board thought he was a great guy who should get another chance at someone else's granny.
A discussion of what crimes should be subject to permanent lifetime incarceration without any avenue, ever, for release is a good one, but not what I was addressing by questioning why it is "nauseating" to see the Salvation Army treat human beings with the base dignity G-d demands we provide even the least among us.
G-d loves even those who we don't love, and I thank Him for His mercy. None of us has done anything to deserve such grace.

SCATS said...

To 11:07AM ~~ It's very odd that someone so pious as you writes "G-d" instead of God. Why is that? Political correctness again ...

BTW, I believe you've completely forgotten the impact of the "get out of jail early card" also known as the plea bargain. Lesser crime = lesser time.

Anonymous said...

Less PC and more an idiosyncrasy lingering from a more Judaic upbringing. To say that's a "politically correct" affectation is, to me, peculiar, as it is entirely meant in respect to G-d. Or, as you seem to prefer, God.
I haven't forgotten at all about plea bargains. Nobody ever brought them up until 11:13. I was addressing the "nauseating to witness" act of prisoners getting gift bags.

Doorley Deal she let that pig pignato get away with rape. And now he doesn't have to register as a sex offender when he's a total predator.

SCATS said...

To 5:53PM ~~ Oh G!d!

To 9:19PM ~~ Doorley wasn't DA when he went to trial, was she? Or are you saying she brokered the deal as a prosecuting attorney?

Anonymous said...

She brokered the deal as the ADA on the case. Put the victims through hell like she always does. This women also makes tickets disappear for the directors of the irish dance club where her daughters dance competitively.

SCATS said...

To 12:11PM ~~ I definitely wouldn't want to be on her opposing side in court.

Irish dancers? The jig is up! lol

Anonymous said...

SandyBaby do have a very wide mean streak. You really want to see a rocket mention her little darlings can't Irish Dance for squat.

She's on par with the last DA we had in Monroe County.

She campaigns well though, and nobody better dare mention her pathetic results or she;ll whip out her abusing the girl card.
She's very sensitive.
