This person steals a measely few thousand and gets her photo in the Chronicle, others steal a hundred thousand or more and their picture never gets shown. What is that? is there a double standard somewhere Augusta Chronicle?

Measley few thousand? If it

Measley few thousand? If it was your few thousand I'd bet it wouldn't be so measley. They should put every single thieving [filtered word]'s picture in the paper as far as I am concerned so we know who to look out for. But just because they didn't do others, doesn't mean she doesn't deserve to get her repeat offending butt in the paper!! lol I can't stand a thief, wether is 10,000 or 10 bux!! And I know plenty of people black and white whos criminal stories never made it to the paper. If they did put all these [filtered word] criminals around here in the paper, they would be thick as phone books! lol
