Now let's punish this bad guy for his unacceptable behavior. He was caught red handed.

We should ban video cameras. They take away from these criminal's way of life. The things they were going to steal, were going to go toward next Christmas for their children. Shame on you people for trying to catch them in the act......How was that Piene2? Sound about right to you?

Was he the one that covered his face after it was taped like 5 times? Can't fix stupid. He's lucky he broke into the house of a tech enthusiast, not one of the "six-gun toters" piene2 dislikes so much ;)

We can only hope for a long jail sentence but it is not going to happen.

Just the start of his life of crime. He will be released and most likely will be in trouble before his trial for this crime.
