    Marcie’s comments are a perfect example of how the lawbreakers, convicted criminals and drunks selfish acts take such a toll on the family members. Victim’s and family members have to suffer and live with the aftermath…

    They escaped work release. Their sorry butts don’t want to work. A few years of hard labor in a prison and maybe they’ll get their minds right. No more work release.
