I just wish one of the places

I just wish one of the places he ( if he did) robbed would have had someone armed and put this piece of trash in the garbage. He needs to be old and gray before getting released (if guilty); and too bad we will likely spend $1M looking after him. (if he is the guy who did the AR's)

Somehow, I wish

the lamentable Mr. Harris had thought more carefully about his choice of permanent facial art. It is an affront and a mockery.

But then again, perhaps that's exactly what he intended, although I must admit to not have initially considered him likely to be that subtle.

Would love to see what type of punishment he gets. Nowadays, people get away with everything.

3 Strikes And You're Out

Put this guy away and throw away the key. He definitely wants to follow the crime life so let him go to jail. He doesn't want to work; he wants to take other people's hard earned money. In India if you get caught stealing they cut off your hand. Needless to say there is very little stealing in India.

Not India, scoop. It is a penalty on the books in a number of middle eastern countries, but that is only the case when a tribunal determines that a convicted person did not make proper atonement (confession/apology/restitution) for the thievery. Needless to say, there are not many handless people walking about.

y'all folks don't
Unpublished

y'all folks don't understand...they turned to crime because of racism and slavery, you see if they were not slaves 400 years ago then they would have been able to read, write, and doo all sorts of "book learnin" but since they were slaves (maybe they were on the same plantation as texas congresswoman sheila jackson-lee) they had no other options but to turn to crime to make a livin, since salvery and racism prevents them from getting an education or a good job.......

get ready folks that will be the explaination their "scumbag" lawyers will present during the trial...of course we all know that "dey is be not guilty but innascent of all charges, cause dey be not da one who did it, since all blacks be lookin alike da poleece jes picked up da wrong peepels dats all", i am sure "dey mammies" will be leaving their nice comfortable homes in some government project upset because "dey have to use some of dey welfare/EBT fo gas to ride from atl to da augusta fo da trial"...of course "dey daddies" are no where to be found, their are either in jail or on the run..if they are in jail maybe they will get to meet up "wit dey daddies" while "dey are incarcerated"

That story can't be right....

It's against the law to use a gun in the commission of a crime. Must be a typo...

Palmetto, when was the last

Palmetto, when was the last time you were in India? I can't tell you what the laws are exactly although I have been there 5 times in the last few years. What I can tell you is that there were many people I saw that had no hands and feet and that a police official there told me how they take care of thievery in drastic way such as this to cut down on crime. I can only tell you what I have experienced, seen and heard while I was there and if it is something other than that then I am not aware of it. Either way I wish we did follow such a law here in the US. Unless the pain of the punishment outweighs the pleasure of the crime we will never be able to change things. We must get tougher on criminals.
