    What a chip bag!!

  2. Why didn’t the Magistrate order this individual,(and also others)to either pay cash or do community services until they’ve paid for whatever it had been they’d destroyed :-(

    Thank God it was not a “WMD”.

  4. sorry, what? says:

    he should have to serve double the maximum sentence of whatever crime earned him the bracelet.

    Seems like the ‘electronic monitoring system’ wasn’t monitoring to well eh?

    $3500.00!! That is a fair chunk of change. How many are damaged that we don’t hear about?

    Perhaps the option should be given, if you want to stay out of prison on bail & wear the ankle bracelet, you put down $3500 deposit first. Trash the bracelet, lose the deposit.
