Everyone, please step back from the computer keyboards for a moment, read this thread's drift for the last few days, and ask what it will look like to somebody who is coming here to see what people are saying about Pulaski County Prosecutor Deborah Hooper.

If you haven't been reading for a long time -- and most people haven't -- this thread looks like a bunch of potheads organized a "let's get rid of Hooper as prosecutor" movement, and maybe even convinced our state representative to give prescription pot a second look.

Do the opponents of Deborah Hooper really want to have her start going all over the county, pointing to this website, and saying, "See, this proves I fight crime -- the potheads are organizing to vote me out!"

I don't know of anyone in Pulaski County who is seriously suggesting that we follow the lead of some cities by deciding to stop enforcing drug laws against marijuana. Unless a candidate for prosecutor decides to start advocating a position like that, or is accused of being "soft on pot," I really don't see what the medical marijuana issue has to do with a thread that is designed to discuss Deborah Hooper's performance in office.

Asking Kevin Hillman his position on enforcement of marijuana laws was a legitimate question, and he's answered it. Could I politely suggest that the discussion after that question was asked has veered into areas that help nobody?

There are other threads on this board where medical marijuana could be discussed or has been discussed before. That's the right place for what is being said here.

Personally, I have very little sympathy for those who want to decriminalize marijuana or other similar illegal drug. But there are other places where that can be discussed and I fully support the constitutional right of people to peaceably petition their government for redress of grievances -- even if they're wrong, like the pot legalization people.

Did I just get called a "Pothead"?
Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I'd give my left arm to be ambidextrous...

Kari, I understand your point as well.

If we were in a county where the prosecuting attorney or one of the candidates had decided that prosecuting for marijuana was not going to be a priority, this would be an entirely appropriate discussion. Since there are cities, counties, and even entire states that have decided to stop prosecuting "personal use" quantities of marijuana, it was entirely appropriate to ask Kevin Hillman what his policy will be if elected. Same for any of the other candidates.

However, to my knowledge, neither the prosecutor nor any of her three challengers has taken that position.

But hey, who knows? Ms. Hooper doesn't prosecute a lot of other things, and just this week she apparently decided to notify every reporter in Pulaski County except me that Paul Cary, the former Army specialist who had pleaded guilty to multiple armed robberies, had been sentenced. Maybe she's decided to stop prosecuting personal-use quantities of pot and we just missed that because there are so many other incidents she isn't prosecuting, either.

Perhaps I should ask Ms. Hooper how many personal-use pot cases she's prosecuted in the last four years. The answer might be interesting.

Bliss, though I understand your point "weed is illegal and needs to be prosecuted", it IS up to the PA what cases he/she feels merits prosecution.  Example:  Do you prosecute, using tax payers money, with the same zeal,  the 80 year old cancer patient that has 6 months to a year to live, for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, that  you would prosecute a healthy 35 year old (who is in possession of the same amount) using marijuana for recreational purposes only?  There is a real possibility that our PA will come up against such cases, and as tax payers, do you not feel that people have the right to know HOW that money is being used?

I agree with you completely and that's why I think the original question should have been asked and answered.  It was the additional comments regarding "why" it should be legal that were kind of off topic for this particular thread.  Discretion is an on point topic for the PA or candidates for the PA.  I believe one of the candidates has stated publicly that they will charge anything and everything to the fullest extent of the law.  That doesn't necessarily make for the best candidate either, because, like you said, there are sometimes when circumstances require alternative measures.

Rep. Day, for whatever it's worth, I have no problem with your comments... in fact, this is a subject that **SHOULD** be directed to you, and it probably belongs in your corner, not here, since you are the one and only participant on this board who can actually vote on changing the law on this issue.

This is not an issue for the prosecutorial race until/unless someone running for prosecutor starts to say we should not make it a priority to prosecute people for possession of personal-use quantities of marijuana. So far nobody is making that statement.

As you know, I've privately communicated to you my very serious concerns about the drug legalization movement. I've seen the tremendous damage that drug legalization has done in the Netherlands and some other places. I realize there are conservatives who view this as a "government intrusion in private life" issue. I can respect that argument, but I fundamentally disagree with it, unless we're prepared to go all the way back to the 1800s where quack medicines were being hawked at county fairs by unregulated medicine shows by "doctors" with little or no medical training before the government got into the business of protecting people from dangerous and useless drugs.

If we're going to grant that government has a role in protecting the public health -- and I realize not all conservatives agree with that based on free market principles -- then banning dangerous drugs is a key part of the government's responsibility. We need to be consistent, and that means either abolishing the Food and Drug Administration entirely and allowing anybody to hawk anything on the streets or accepting the FDA and science-based protection of public health.

There is simply no way, based on current FDA rules, that marijuana would **EVER** be considered acceptable medicine if it were not for political pressure being brought to bear on the issue. Now maybe we shouldn't have the FDA at all, but if we're going to have it, then things like marijuana should be banned.

DTM, walk just a few yards in the shoes of those who DO suffer from serious conditions that have used all the FDA approved drugs, and discovered that medicinal marijuana relieved the suffering better than any of the drugs pushed by pharmaceutical companies.

As for the FDA, take a look into how many times they've approved drugs, only to recall their approval due to the drugs going through the "fast track"...... Yep, the pharmaceutical companies have a LOT of money to spread around.

Most all of our medicines are simply money making copies, of what nature/G_D has already supplied for us.

As I stated in my invitations to each candidate, participation in this debate will be a strong testament to the commitment to accountable government and the concerns of Pulaski County families.

Our county is strongest when our elected leaders are accessible and accountable to its citizens, explain their decisions and answer tough questions. That standard of openness must start long before Election Day. 

I for one don't understand an attorney who is running for Prosecutor declining to participate in a debate, when "debating" or arguing their point to win favor is the main factor of their job.  If you can't stand and debate and represent yourself then why should we trust you to stand and argue for the safety of our county.

Exactly!  I know that some of them have spent longer at lunch/dinner trying to earn a single vote.  This will be a place where they will be able to be heard by many.

Hey, you guys are a tough crowd!
 
On a serious note, if you can't make it to the debate or can't wait to ask a question, please feel free to ask me here.  If you want to know why I want this job, what my qualifications and experience are, or my position on something, ask.  If you don't want to do it publicly, send me an e-mail or personal message.  Call me or stop by St. Robert City Hall and we'll chat.  I am applying for a job from you, the voters, and you have every right to interview me.  That's why I was happy to accept the debate invite and was glad at least one of my opponents did as well.
 
Thanks,
Kevin

While I believe I have far more legal and prosecutorial experience, Jeff is a nice guy so I don't think I'll be assaulting him.  At least he is showing up.

Not everyone thinks Hooper is doing a bad job.  I heard that mentioned at the meeting in Laquey and from others.  I donít blame her for not wanting to be part of a debate that is organized by someone that is on the PCW.  She knows what people think of her that are on this site.  I also believe that not everything is her fault.  She blames the Sheriff dept the sheriff dept blames her when it is more likely somewhere in the middle.   Iím not voting for her.

I have a question, will it be considered assault on a minor when you are debating Thomas?  Maybe even Assault on a minor with a deadly weapon(the mind can be a deadly weapon right)?

Let's give Jeff credit... he took on Deborah in court defending someone accused of robbing the Lion's Den store and defeated a sitting prosecutor who has been a lawyer almost as long as Jeff has been alive.

That should carry some weight. No matter what somebody thinks of the current prosecutor, it shows that Jeff is able to try and win cases against somebody who has been a lawyer for a long, long time.

Wtf does that prove..your trying to tell me he shouldnt be able to win cases because hes young? Or he should only beat people younger than him.  All as I was saying is he is inexperienced and should get slaughtered by someone with the experience of Hillman.

Not everyone thinks Hooper is doing a bad job.  I heard that mentioned at the meeting in Laquey and from others.  I donít blame her for not wanting to be part of a debate that is organized by someone that is on the PCW.  She knows what people think of her that are on this site.  I also believe that not everything is her fault.  She blames the Sheriff dept the sheriff dept blames her when it is more likely somewhere in the middle.   Iím not voting for her.

I've known Mrs. Hooper for a very long time both professionally and socially, so I'm not just someone "on PCW".  Even if I was, I'm still a voter and it should matter.

I agree,  I am not just someone on PCW and I look to this site to gain information.  I am smart enough to figure out who is supported, or popular, but that won't sway my vote.  I think hidding behind the context that everyone hates me is a really poor excuse not to address the voters.  I have only lived in Missouri for 7 years and if she allows this site to be the only source of information about her, with no response from her than I guess she really doesn't care about me and by the way that seems to be what people on this board voice the loudest and that does sway my vote.
There is NEVER a right way to do the wrong thing!
