Neighbors: York Co. land is dumping ground for bodies 5:41 PM | Local News | News for Charlotte, North Carolina | WCNC.com | Top Stories (http://www.wcnc.com/news/topstories/stories/wcnc-052108-mw-dumpingground.16d3dfd7.html - broken link)

Thoughts on this? Seems like the second time in the last few weeks York Co, has slapped Charlotte in the face, first with their don't cross the border slogan and now this? Anyone think there is any truth to this statement? I for one think it is an easy way out to always point the finger back at Charlotte.

IMO Charlotte is not a big city though it thinks of itself as one. The catch and release program needs to stop. Bad policy leds to bad governance.

Muffinman, it's not that simple. There is no "catch and release" program in place. Due to the severe underfunding of our DA's and criminal justice system some people have to be let go so that more serious cases can be pursued. I am not saying this is right, in fact, it makes me very angry. But the DA's office makes these decisions (NOT THE POLICE like so many seem to think) based on many factors - they are all judgement calls and they are doing the best they can with what they have to work with.

I agree on that. I always here, Charlotte is a big city, in the top 20 I believe, but when I look at it, I see it as a small city, surrounded by a lot of burbs. Now I know when they tally the population ofcourse, it is everyone in the city limits, which includes a lot of burbs, but we aren't a big city with big crime.

I certainly hope that the person dumping the body gets charged with illegal dumping or littering. That will add another $100 to their punishment. As a matter of fact, in Charlotte, the $100 fine may be the most severe punishment?

Gee, another perceptions debate. Granted it isn't NYC but if you are from the northeast and not from NYC, Phili, Baltimore or Boston, guess what? Charlotte is bigger. Besides, is it really that important when it comes to the issue? I've always been told that size isn't important.
