    How sad, these folks find out the harsh realties of life too late and the only options they have are minimum wage no skill jobs, welfare or becoming a criminal. Sure wish our President would be brave enough to discuss the real issues.

    Wah Wah wah, it’s societies fault, lack of jobs, lack of parents. I have seen too many people come from bad situations to go on and become productive members of society. Some folks are just going to be bad eggs no matter what you do and allowing them to suckle off the governments teat isn’t helping them do anything but have free time to plot and scheme and raise another generation of losers. Most don’t care because being in jail for them is easy…3 hots and a cot, cable tv, newspapers, store, medical care.

    I’m sure this punk has burglarized this neighborhood over and over again. Glad he is off the streets… For a few weeks anyway! Valdosta has turned into the wild west, so sad.
