  • Just a mom

    I don’t understand how anyone would think taking from others what they sold their time for … you sell minutes of your life in exchange for money… you steal from someone…you rob them of their life, time spent to purchase what they need or desire.
    Why would these people not just work? What is wrong with these people. No pride. I implore them to consider changing and becoming someone who values himself/herself.
    Don’t just let them out.
    They should be made to understand what it is to work hard then have it takin away. Then work some more.
    Then be free to try again to be a productive member of society.
    By their ages I don’t know that it’s possible. But one can hope.

    Good on ya, PD!

    And I agree with Just a Mom… If folks take the amount of time and effort used in fleecing others and put it towards bettering themselves and their situation, they would be doing well enough that they wouldn’t need to fleece other people.
