    Neh - I agree with that he needed a heavier response from the law: but a felony? No - on that: I think it was too much - he could have received a stronger sentence without being tagged as a felon. Being a felon = losing some rights. I don't think that anything he's done would necessitate the severity of a felony. . . that's for murderers, serial rapists = extreme injustices against people, family and civility.

    Unless he did all that - and served a considerable amount of time in the past (possible - but we don't know)

    I agree. 50 hours community service would have been slightly heavy handed. Felony is horribly blind justice.

    Crap like this just screams to the general public "HEY THE JUSTICE SYSTEM IS A PILE OF CROCK ****"

    I thought we were talking about a guy who asked for water at McDs and filled it with soda instead

    I agree the charges are justified. The guy is a repeat offender.

    Having said that i can see where Wake is coming from. I've just been browsing the Drunk Driving thread where a repeat offender got a 90 day sentence for killing someone. Apparently a cup of soda is more valuable than a life .

    Check this out, if the serial thief had just paid the buck, or didn't have the criminal history he did, he wouldn't be looking at felony charges. How about, instead of blaming the law, we actually fault the guy who was stupid enough to earn himself a felony charge for taking something so silly.

    Well he's white, and there's a quota to be met for whites to be arrested and charged.

    I will wait to get all outraged until he is convicted of a felony over this. Charges get reduced all the time, witness the repeat DUI sentence. Perhaps the DA is attempting a wake-up call. Been done plenty before. Seen many a repeat crack head get a slap on the wrist, even with repeat failure to appears. Takes a lot to get thrown in prison.

    X, while I do not like three strike laws, the fact he was arrested and is being charged with a felony is not the issue I have with any of this. My issue is who the hell calls the cops over a dollar cup from McDonalds.

    Sorry. I was responding to Joko104 regarding a 19 year old who broke into a garage and stole beer. I thought you were replying about that. My apologizes.

    This is ****ing ridiculous. I don't give a crap if he has previous convictions for armed robbery, first degree murder, and child molestation. It's a freaking $1 cup of soda from McDonald's. The kind of thing that LOTS of people do without even thinking about it as theft.

    these charges are appropriate.
    You wanna foot the bill for his prison cell yourself? Or do you expect the taxpayers to pay to keep this menace to society off the streets so he can't threaten the public anymore by taking $1 cups of soda?
