    In Massachusetts (USA) things are different. Years ago I would have doubted justice would prevail in our Commonwealth, but times have changed... they are handing out longer and longer suspended sentences!

    I'm sorry about your equipment but am happy they caught and punished the guy.

    Had that happened here I doubt authorities would even try to catch the perp let alone bother build a case to convict him. Even if they did convict him he probably wouldn't serve more than six months and his jail time would probably be suspended for parole and community service unless it was at least his third time.

    Yes, I'm very jaded about our so-called justice system. And we have a lot of dishonest sociopaths here. And... I need to stop posting tonight.
