Weak on crime

August 7, 2012
The Advertiser-Tribune

State Rep. Rex Damschroder, State Sen. Dave Burke and Gov. John Kasich have gone absolutely flaccid on crime. They have signed off on legislation, House Bill 86, that allows property crimes to rise from a ceiling of $500 all the way up to a new ceiling of $1,000 per occurrence before they become felonies. The list includes theft, receiving stolen property, unauthorized use of property, passing bad checks, Medicaid fraud, Medicaid eligibility fraud, illegal use of WIC benefits, insurance fraud, falsification, corrupt activity and many more. The above politicians are only for private enterprise in the sense that a pickpocket is enterprising. However, a pickpocket does not respect private property rights. Apparently, our representative, senator and governor are against protecting private property and the public trust from thievery.
