What would be nice is that our court system actually put some damn work in and lock up LIFETIME ADDICT SCUMBAGS like Maurice Hough. This scumbag attacked a friend of mine and tried to rob him for pocket change outside of Family Video one evening. The cops were called and when they came they told us he’d be back out within a week and he was. Maurice is pyscho who is a great danger to the general public. Our courts need to stop giving these REPEAT CRIMINALS second chances. The criminal doesn’t see it as a chance at redemption, it’s a chance to perfect their trade and business on the street. I blame our law enforcement and our courts for the many problems in this town.
