    you didn't read the very article that you posted.

    it has NOTHING to do with any 3-strikes laws.

    he has three charges against him, and they decided to up the theft to a felony, as he is a repeat offender. clearly, getting chaged with misdemeanors has NOT taught him a lesson.

    these charges are appropriate.

    5 years may seem like a lot but this guy is a repeat offender for theft. His actions cause the rest of us to pay higher prices for everything they steal. Chances are everytime he had been charged in the past was as simple as a slap on the wrist. Looks like this time they are getting serious and making an example out of him. Seems to me he deserves what he is getting.

    Almost everything in Florida is a felony. a 19 year old here got 6 years in the pen for stealing beer out of the refrigerator in someone's garage.

    No Wake- not for a dollar's worth of soda, but for a cumulative amount of wrong-doing. To me, it's still over the top, but the original story doesn't include some very pertinent details.

    But wouldn't the charges be Burglary or breaking and entering? It sounds harmless when you say it like he just stole beer.

    Seriously, a felony over one dollar's worth of soda? Where's the justice in this? How can some people spend less than a year in jail for killing people, and then this guy is charged with a felony for $1's worth of soda. This is absolutely ridiculous, and an embarrassment to our legal system.


    Whoever called the police on the guy should be the one kicked in the arse... realize that once the police are called they have no choice but to react...

    How did the neighbor know that he was only stealing beer? I don't know about you but I think I would rather they erred on the side of me than the irresponsible acts of a 19 year old. How do you end up with the criminal being the victim?
