They dont respect themselves, they dont respect the law abiding citizens, why should they respect the justice system which only gives them a little slap on the wrist and turns them back out to victimize more members of our community.

it seems the same people continue to committ
the same crimes or better yet - graduate to bigger and better crimes - it still appears it's all about the $$$$ - NOT THE JUSTICE: the courts, the lawyers, probation, and the same criminals give and get all the breaks - while those that obey the law - continue to pay dearly for the repeat offenders - thanks for nothing - trps1
