Doug- The problem in Oregon is that many of our rural counties are going bankrupt because of public employee retirement liabilities and entitlements (recent State est. of $1 billion/yr for illegals alone). Hence, they are shutting down the jails and people convicted of grand theft are being let loose and lesser thieves don't even get tried. As a result thievery is increasing exponentially. So, the law won't scare them into not stealing. On another note, what if a thug forces a woman to preform oral sex at the point of a knife. What's the harm? It was just a little of her time. Oh, you say she has to live with being violated. So what, apparently me feeling violated by some thief ransacking my home doesn't justify killing him.
