    I hope the judges stop slapping these guys on the wrist. When you see how often they are let off and how many get slaps on the wrist, it’s easy to see why the law is no deterrent and there are so many repeat offenders.

    Money and opportunity has dried up so people (drug addicts) are desperate.I bet in days of old this fool probably wouldn’t have chosen this path.Sad end to it all is , if you are found guilty of REVENGE you too will end up in court.This individual has robbed your family twice if you go to prison.
