    If this happened in October, why are they just telling us now? Talk about swift justice...

    Here we go again, when will the justice department do something about people like this? They do not need a defense lawyer, they know they are guilty. This should be a open and shut case. start punishing some of these punks, make a example of them, then some of this crime will slow down.
