People like this need to be caught and buried up to their heads. Then fire ants released. Terorize them for a while. This poor lady who is working to make a living will possibly need therapy which will cost her money. Sad. The scumbags (which is not a strong enough words to describe them) will be made the victims when caught because they are 'misunderstood' and then each will receivea BIG hug from the liberal judges who will let them go to commit again. There is a reason we need more cops like Dirty Harry.

Our so called government is a failure.
It will not protect we the the people like we desire.
It cant even build a wall to seperate killers and terrorist from American
children and familes while we rebuild the whole damn world what kind of crap is that I ask you ?
Where are the real leaders ?
Where are there balls ?
Where is there compassion for American citizens ?
Where is their common sense ?
we have elected a bunch of loosers.
