    I am not one to call for inhumane treatment, but stealing from a school, stealing from a child’s educational future; these guys need public flogging. We seriously need to stop talking in this country.

    the only reason people steal like that is because they have people who are willing to buy. those who buy are worse than the thief…they all deserve to stay in the piss house

    Send them to the S.R.C….the SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION CENTER…(Prison Farm)………

    THERE THEY CAN EARN THEIR KEEP and CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY at NO COST TO TAX-PAYERS.

    They can grow food for SCHOOL LUNCHES, BUILD DESKS AND CHAIRS FOR ALL SCHOOLS and gov. offices…….They can be VERY PRODUCTIVE AT THE S.R.C.— THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION CENTER.

    THE TEENAGERS WERE CHARGED AFTER THEY WERE FOUND IN POSSESSION OF A COMPUTER CPU. AND THE OTHER WAS CHARGE AFTER RETAINING A DELL CPU AND OTHER ACCESSORIES.
    THE CHARGES ARE ALL WRONG.
    THE CPU IS THE BRAIN OF THE COMPUTER. THE CPU IS A VERY SMALL OBJECT THAT CAN FIT INTO ONES POCKET. YOU CANNOT CHARGE TWO PERSON FOR THAT. EITHER THEY HAD A CPU “CENTRAL PROCESSING UNIT”, OR THEY HAD A COMPUTER IN THEIR POSESSION.
    THAT IS WHY THE CRIMINALS ARE WINNING. THEY ARE CHARGED WITH THE WRONG CHARGE.

    PEACE
