Dude Shoplifts Package Of Cheese, Gets 7 Years In Prison

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Yolo County judge on Monday sentenced a man who walked out of a store with a package of cheese in his trousers to seven years and eight months in prison.

cheeseProsecutors had originally sought a life sentence for Robert Ferguson under the state`s `three strikes` law. They dropped that bid last month, saying a psychological report had convinced them that a life sentence wasn`t warranted."

There may be a few bleeding hearts who are upset over the harsh sentence, but I would have been been happy if Robert Ferguson had received a death sentence.

Ferguson is an oxygen thief, he is unfit to be in civilized society. Ferguson is a career criminal with 13 prior convictions, how many chances is a rat entitled to? There is zero chance of Ferguson turning over a new leaf, he is a financial burden on society.

We should stop pretending that career criminals can be rehabilitated, we should lock them up, and throw away the key.

Good luck to Ferguson when the other convicts find out he`s in prison for stealing a package of cheese, they will ridicule him and make his life a living hell.
