Maybe learn how the justice system works before you go insulting it. Police don't send criminals to prison. Judges do.

I suspect that this perp was working with another. There are usually lookouts who work with these burglars. And that co-conspirator will get away with it. We lock up one of them for a long time and his co-conspirator will continue the crime. We need to lock up these burglars with an enhanced sentence that reflect the seriousness of the crime. It is not just material things that are taken. It is the victim's sense of security in his or own home that is lost. We have hard-working citizens who work for their belongings only to have these criminals steal their hard-earned goods and their sense of security in their own "home". A place that one invested hard-earned money to get a sense of shelter, security and safety. Burglars take this away and they should be put behind bars for a longer time as they are prone to repeating their offense.
