God, the way we coddle criminals in this state is downright pathetic. These people pray on hard working people and we just give them slap on the wrists so they can continue to harass law abiding citizens. Stealing from them and making their lives miserable. All these people with outstanding warrants just end up getting a freaking ticket? That's it. What's the point of a warrant then? So, while they are waiting for months before their hearing, they get to steal from more of us. Love it.

that makes me nervous. I wish they wouldn't release them. Because they become repeat offenders. :(
