After reading the article about property crime increases in the ADN on June 29, specifically about auto theft, I have come to one very important conclusion: Senate Bill 91 needs to be repealed.

When drug addicts from other states come here because of this law, it sends a message loud and clear.

When the crimes of auto theft increase so rapidly, it also sends a message that something is wrong. The problem seems to be the fact that the thieves will often not be prosecuted. This might be an encouragement for them to steal to support their lifestyles.

We need to get together with our state and local leaders and get SB 91 repealed.
