Why is this person out and committing these crimes again and again and again. Our system is too lenient to criminals. They get away with anything and the hardworking people have to work harder just to remain where they are. Our judges bend over backwards to ensure that they get a fair trial and in the process let them out and allow them to commit the crimes again and again. This has to stop. If you are caught the second time, you should remain locked up for a long time until you are old enough not to commit crimes again. This criminal spree committed by our professional and experienced criminals has to stop. What are our elected legislatures doing?
