don't know why the police bother, the criminals will just get probation and be back on the streets before the paper work gets done.

Yes, I agree with you. It is downright disheartening when we capture these thieves and only to have them be basically released with only probation. These criminals need to spend some time in prison as punishment. And when they are released to the community they should have a much closer supervision. In fact, they should be required to wear location monitoring bracelets as oftentimes these type of criminals are often drug addicts. If we catch them committing these drug offenses, be it using or selling illegal drugs, we will have prevented them from committing property crimes. Our citizens and businesses must demand better accountability on these criminals as our legislators seem to not see the problem with our rash burglaries and theft.

Apprehending criminals is the police officer's job. It's up to the rest of the criminal justice system to do their job. The police can go home knowing they did the best that they could. Are they concerned about what happens next? Absolutely. Is it their job to follow up? No.

At least the cops caught them and stop another thief. Now the arrest will be on or added to their records. They should pick up trash along the highways for punishment!

We spend a lot of resources capturing these thieves but we don't keep them in prison for long if we do give them prison time. We need to bolster our probation to include stricter monitoring of offenders which would include polygraph tests and required counseling. Thieves have a high re-offense rate and should be treated with more supervision. Costs to taxpayers and businesses are very high when it comes to thieves. We need to invest in a monitoring system that will make these offenders accountable for their actions. Our state has been very lax when it comes to theft and we need to bolster our justice system to reduce property crimes. As shown in this news article, these thieves were driving stolen mopeds in commission of their crime. It just shows that these criminals are prolific.

The cops should just repeatedly kick them in the nutz so that these idiots can't reproduce. Harsh? Think about it, when they take their next stolen moped out to rob someone, their baby mama will have to say, Daddy will be right back, he went to get dinner.
