Life in prison w/o parole is a good punishment.
To Ms. Calvo,
Do you really want our tax dollars spent on providing "housing" to her for the rest of her life?
How could you even type that comment in earnest? Your suggestion is dumbfounding.
I would stop by Walgreens on my way for work. Over the years, I have come to know Maria. She is a very nice person and a single Mom. Life is hard raising Kids on minimum wage. She made a mistake and I wish her well.
That's such an unfortunate statement. Our U.S. constitution forbids cruel and unusual punishment, which means a crime cannot be punished in a way that is not commensurate with its significance.
I am also utterly dumbfounded.
Obviously it's not very obvious. This is a simple text format, there's no tone or body language.
Those of us who know Maria just didn't find it humorous.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
