Hopefully the Department of "Corrections" and "Rehabilitation" will be able to help these young men along their chosen carrier path.

What is sad, is that this doesn't even reflect anything that has been going on in my neighborhood. Did you know, according the Post Office, over 40 community mail boxes have been broken into in the last month? Or how about the numerous day time home break ins going on?
