“Make my day” law?

Sounds too good to be true.

But, there’s a fine balance to be found here.

Druggies stealing the stereos get the death penalty?

That’s over the top.

But what were the donut eaters doing for these businessmen? Taking reports.

If we ended the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” then theft probably wouldn’t necessary to support a habit.

All signs point at the stupidity of the diktats of the politicians and bureaucrats!
