    To the criminals. You have a mother a father and sisters and brothers an family. Just remember when you hurt others you will suffer the consequences. You may never get caught and you may feel that the gov is letting you down but It's no excuse for taking other people for granted. We only can be forgive so many times. You need to live with the devil in your own head, soul. God is begging you to stop
