MAKE CRIMINALS PAY TO CLEAN UP METH MESS

As a taxpayer, I find our government's methods of funding the cleanup
of meth labs to be disgustingly inept ("Flap throws off meth lab
tracking," Metro, Dec. 1).

Federal funding for this purpose ran out months ago (although
millions were recently appropriated, along with more funds from
Georgia's Criminal Justice Coordinating Council).

Why should taxpayers get the bill for this?

When a person is convicted of operating a meth lab in their house,
judges should be able to order the sale of that house (or other
property the meth maker may have), with proceeds going to a state
fund to clean up meth labs.

A meth lab is a danger to the whole neighborhood and expensive to clean up

Government should look to the criminals - not the taxpayers - to pay
for these irresponsible crimes.
