  1. Well let’s see here, let’s get her on down here in Tucson, we can get all those pesky felonies meaningless felonies wiped clean and get you a prize with a little tiny moving violation in her car instead.

    Then put her to work at Pima county with a full penision after 90 days able to retire in 10 years at 128% of earnings, then after 10 more years, we’ll bump ya up to 260% then finally 320% with zero deduct medical and a county car with free gas for life.

    Put this sicko thief in the crowbar hotel for 30 years hard labor.

  2. Nothing so vexes me as a thief above ground……
