It's just too bad the justice system focuses on punishment rather than support. I would call these people in if I saw them but to what effect? It's a lose-lose situation for everyone. It's a cycle that can not be broken. Confine > Release > Crime > . They get sucked in to the system designed not to let them out. The act of punishing people only creates the illusion that something worthwhile is being done when something is not. When these people are released from jail or prison they come out worse off than before. With nothing to lose they either are forced to commit crimes to survive, i.e., robberies, car jackings, muggings, or murder or they give up hope completely; sway with the wind, roll with the punches, drugs, prostitution, alcohol. More crime. These people have no chance whatsoever when the community around them turns their back on them in a time when their community is needed most. I think Patch should have a page with resources listed for people who need help. The community directory is helpful but it could be taken one step further. People in hard times need to have a place to go where they can be directed where to go. A referral system. Self-referred or referred by others. The community directory is more for people who already know what they are looking for. If a system like this were created it would need to be featured and marketed so that it could not be missed.
