    Why would you blame education for this person's deeds. He has(had) the same oportunities as everyone else, (if he wanted to USE the oportunity). He could go to the SAME public school as hundreds of other children, (who have elected NOT to steal). There are grants for comm college. a Person can elect to go in the military to better themselves to get training and college credits for training that is completed. So This is NOT an education issue. This IS a Life GOAL setting issue.

    You call that "a string of break-ins"??? Nah, that's an entire spool. This guy is way past the term "career criminal".....wonder what our lame, useless, good-for-nothing justice sytem will award him.

    I wonder why no one would hire this guy? He appears to be such a clean-cut, nice young man. I bet he can even print his name in crayon!
