They must be held responsible for their actions and the quicker that they take responsibility for their actions and see beyond themselves they have the opportunity for redemption and forgiveness from those they hurt.

How dare people think they are entitled to hard working citizens personal belongings. Im glad they were caught. There are a lot of people going through financial hardships. Robbery is not the solution .
