Crime

Some on the left like to sell the idea that it’s compassionate to not arrest drug addicts. It’s exactly the opposite of compassion to leave someone in the cycle of addiction.  In fact, it is probably the cruelest thing you could do to these people by allowing them to stay in the cycle of addiction and poverty.  The truth is, tough love with zero-tolerance policies work when they are coupled with drug rehabilitation facilitated by drug courts and tough enforcement of narcotics laws. Strict enforcement and compassionate treatment works.  Dealers who are poisoning our communities with narcotics should be locked up and removed from society.  Actions have consequences.  If you deal drugs in Washington State, you should go to jail.  Period.

Crime

Empowering our law enforcement professionals to actively take drug dealers and addicts off the streets will have a positive impact on improving our communities.  Currently, our lax drug policies invite drug dealers and addicts to Washington State because they know they won’t go to jail and the state will provide resources for them to stay in their addiction.  Those policies end on day one when I’m elected Governor.

Crime

Jay has committed his administration to making our criminal justice system more equitable. He issued a moratorium on the death penalty because equal justice was not being served. He has offered pardons to individuals with misdemeanor marijuana convictions and is working to diversify the cannabis industry to heal the harm of prohibition on specific communities. Working with community groups, law enforcement, and a bipartisan group of legislators, Jay helped pass bipartisan de-escalation and deadly force standards to ensure there is accountability for police violence.
