SOUND OFF: 2/21/12

Published 7:28 pm Monday, February 20, 2012

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

When will our county, state and country stop building nice facilities for criminals? They should be sentenced to light punishment and not allowed to live in luxury at our expense. They should have to earn their keep. They sit in prison at our expense while we pay others to do the work they should be doing. There’s a lot wrong with this picture.

The two individuals charged with cruelty to animals should be tied to a porch themselves until they starve to death.

It’s a shame our elected representatives in the Legislature are so ineffective that our county has to hire lobbyists to represent our local interests at the legislature.
