This is essentially a shoplifting case, right? How often do shoplifters get jail sentences like this?
I don't know the stats, but my young & dumb nephew got similar time on actual shoplifting charges. Seems like they went easy for a burglary conviction.
30 days? I wonder what he'll do to pass the time. If only he had some Legos.
Creating phony bar codes on a computer is not simple shoplifiting, and it wasn't done by a juvenile. The guy just figured he could get away with it. Who knows what else he did or would have done. There should be consequences for that kind of behavior.
Poor reporting. He was a) unemployed b) doing this over and over. Other news reports say "Langenbach made more than $30,000 selling Legos on eBay, where he did business under the seller name "Tomsbrickyard." His former job is not all that relevant.
If his last name was Sanchez or Gonzalez he probably would have got the five years. U know he only asked for "gym time " as a way of mocking the system. He'll do it again, of that u can be sure, but he'll be more cautious next time by going farther away to different stores. The justice system is everything but just.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
