Silly question on priorities...

from the police blotter in my hometown paper today, but which one of these people should go to jail for the night? Which one should be ROR'd out an hour later?

"Stephanie ***, 21, of ***, was charged with criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument after allowing an officer to search her purse."

Or...

"Raymond ***, 36, of ***, was charged with second-degree menacing and petit larceny following a domestic incident when he stole a cell phone and threatened the owner. A temporary order of protection was issued against ***."

Then which one actually DID go to jail on $1,000 bail? The cooperative one with a piece of metal and plastic, or the wife beater?

1. The obvious answer is the drug person, who was probably put in a cell with a cancer granny

doing a 20 year sentence for smoking a joint.

Why is this a surprise? We let rapists and murderers out so we can make room in prison for jamband fans who get caught with a dime bag. People can carry assault rifles at JC Penney, but the cops will kick down a door and drag some guy off to prison for smoking a bowl.
