Letter: Make them pay now!

Since I moved to Augusta four years ago, I have never seen so much money laundering and employees’ stealing of money from businesses or non-profits than I have in this city and the surrounding area, including Atlanta.

Does anyone else think this is a systemic problem? Why don’t we make them pay it back – all of it – back. Garnish their wages, make them sell their home and take other assets?

This would probably make people think twice about stealing money. These criminals get a slap on the wrist, short jail time, and back to normal with no repercussions. It’s time something changes, now!
