    there are too many young people behind bars because of snitching. the mandatory sentencing laws should be changed. we were all young at one time. and made mistakes. we did not get sentenced by mandatory laws that destroyed our families. Our children are growing up with out one or more parents. do the prosocuters or the police department not care about what other problems they are creating by sending some one with small children to jail for 10 to 15 years.  i guess their brownie points are more important! Or maybe it because they have never lost a close relative to the justice system because of their snitches or their informants.
