I will NEVER understand why some people still think they can pull this crap and get away with it. Especially in this day of cell phones and laptops in the cruisers, etc. And they don't even seem to learn after being caught the first time.
If these a-holes put the effort they use to do the crime, and trying to get away, into a real job, they'd have more money AND not be in jail.
"Stupid is as stupid does." Thanks Forrest!

Another outstanding job by the law enforcment agencies involved getting these worthless animals out of society. Now lets hope the games between in the justice system don't let them back out again.
