I love the part that says "he cried"........what an image! Tough-talking gangsta wannabe crying like a girl in front of the judge. If only his friends could read..........

I do like the tough stance, but doubt it will ever happen in SA. This city is far too weak on all criminals. The DA talks tough, but her corruption makes her pretty much worthless. I am also against spending one dime on this trash. Make the parents/family bring the fool food and water and pay for his stay. If they don't, one less piece of trash on Earth in a week or so..
I guarantee you the words "he was a good boy" will never be heard on TV again.

I disagree. Innocent volunteers spend more than 1 month removing crap "they" did. Why should the guilty one be given as punishment what others willingly volunteer for? Jail time is fantastic.

I'd rather see them getting tough on personal crimes against others (vandalism, theft, and whatnot) than simple marijuana possession charges. But that's the subject for a whole other thread.

Far, far too true. "I did not know the Southwest tickets were stolen, but I am tough on crime."

As long as a segment of our community thinks these criminals are expressing thmselves rather than the slime they are, the situation will only get worse.

Those who can escape do, the rest are forced to live in the ooze.

Thank you! My kids had to do a certain number of community service hours in order to graduate high school, and I can't count the number of hours I have spent painting over tagging. If the judge wants to give out community service, what say he have the little brats come wash my truck or mow my yard? Anything short of that, they need a huge fine and some jail time.
