    Rena, they learn PLENTY in prison. They learn how to file frivolous lawsuits against the state. They learn how to make improvised weapons. They learn how to make connections with other criminals. They learn how to more effective evade arrest. And they work out and get pumped up so they can more effectively beat their victims when they get out...

    Instead of sending them to prison, send them to school for 10 yrs. 12 hours a day.I would rather feed them at school instead of prison where they learn nothing.......

    What an idiot. Why don't the cab companies protect their drivers by putting up bullet proof glass and locks that will not open until they pay through a very thin space. Give the cab driver time to call police too if they are facing danger.

    I can't imagine anyone being this stupid. He obviously wanted to get caught. He must be missing his friends. He looks happy in the mug shot. I'm glad he'll be reunited with his buddies soon. Or will he need to commit a more serious crime?

    Not very bright to call the cab to your address to rob them. Why not just call the police next time and let them know where to find you, save them the trouble, lol.
