Before we again tackle the controversial issue that failed in the General Assembly this year, we should have some hard facts, The Indianapolis Star says in an editorial:
Are bank robbers a drain on the state's economy, or a boon? Are public hospitals, as supporters' of Delph's bill asserted, overburdened by treating bank robbers? What is the net cost of bank robbing for taxpayers?
OK, I changed a couple of words, because I think it clarifies the issue. Go ahead an explain to me how we can encourage a respect for the rule of law while actively encouraging the wholesale breaking of one whole group of laws.
