3 or 4 weeks ago i got caught shoplifting from our local shop, luckily for me the shopkeeper knew my mum and told her instead of the police, my parents went mad and said the last thing they want is for me to go to prison, i was then given my punishment, as it was half term and we had a week off school, my parents said i would be getting a weeks worth of prison life it was HORRIBLE, my parents stripped my bedroom of EVERYTHING except bed , desk and chair they then LOCKED me in my bedroom with a key, i had to get up at 6am everyday, after a shower and breakfast i was then locked back into my room, i was allowed half an hours excersise in the garden per day otherwise i was locked up in my bedroom at ALL times, i was set 4 hours of schoolwork per day including lines and punishment essays, i wasnt even allowed to wear my own clothes i had to wear my navy blue school shirt and skirt, lights out at 9pm, i had to suffer 7 days of this punishment i HATED it so much , my older sister says i deserved to be punished what do you think ?

oh dear, I think you are right but I have never been locked up before and I didn't like it, I don't like confined spaces so being locked in my room all the time was hard for me, plus my sister teased me from our garden saying how nice the weather is that's mean isn't it ?

Keep this in mind, "If you can't do the time, don't do the crime!" think about it.

Folks, take a minute to read this person's posting history. It is a brand NEW account opened today April the 8th. It could be real, or not. Remember that the schools are closed, so kids have a lot of time on their hands......

Because it's meant to be a memorable lesson and a deterrent.

Are you going to shoplift again?
