Instead of putting her in jail they need to get her some help.port Chester courts are horrible all they care about is how much money they can get out of you, or throwing you in jail.I know what she's going threw.when your on drugs you are so lonely and so lost, so instead of judging her and putting her down why don't we say a prayer for her.why don't we stop hurting each other and start helping.

Need to go straight to jail. Not the police's responsibility to get her help. Plus what about the customers at Stop and Shop? They don't have to be subjected to the addict behavior. Everyone always want a help, but ain't willing to help themselves!
