As some of you may recall, last July our garage was burglarized by three guys. One was detained and recently went through the legal process.
So why do I say the legal system blows? Well, first there is the fact that the whole time the guy was claiming that his truck was stolen and so he was not guilty. The case drags on and on for 10 months and then on Tuesday he decides to roll over and admit he was guilty because the public defender realized that if my wife went onto the stand she would crusify his case.
But that isn't why the system sucks. The system sucks because this guy admitted he was guilty, admitted that he filed a false report about his truck being stolen and all he gets is probation. What do I get? I get to be happy he got probation and $700 worth of my stuff that I DO NOT get restitution for. Now can someone explein to me how it is possible for a man to admit to burglarizing my house and yet not have to make ammends for what he took? I mean seriously!! Where in Hades is the justice in that. He breaks the law and gets off clean and I get screwed!!
I am half of the mind to get a conceled weapons permit so if something like this ever happens again I can just shoot the SOB and see if he can say he was not there when the pull the dang bullet out of his leg.
