I don't know, all those years of crime she did, you really think you can teach her they ways of mistakes???
Some things get broken and can't be fixed.

Disagreed

As noted earlier, punishment is not an effective deterrent.
I'm not so sure. I don't think that the death penalty vs life makes a huge difference. But I do think that consequences have a lot to do with it. I know I've certainly been mad and thought, "you know what, consequences are not worth it" if I get arrested for a stupid fight of some sort.

She was stealing while out on bail for a commercial robbery, habitual offender. It's all there in the article to read

She got 24 years for:
-Violating her parole for burglary (it wasn't her first go around)
-multiple narcotics violations
-Burglary, which meant that she went into someone's house to steal things.
-Also some package thefts

So while it is a stiff sentence, and I'm not sure about paying for her next 24 years behind bars, I also don't think its some whacked out example of our failing justice system.

If you steal a bike sitting in a driveway, that's theft. If you steal a bike by entering the garage to take it, that's burglary. If you brandish a knife and say, "gimme your bike!" that's robbery.
I think itís just the randomness of sentencing people object to. She gets 24 years when someone else gets 7 years for murder kind of thing.

I read the article and I understand why we gave her 24 years.

Lampley was a thieving broad
Who stole from homes and yards
Her burglary skills were somewhat flawed
And now she's watched by guards.
