This is all based on how much dollar wise you steal. If someoe breaks in a house and steals a $10 remote, is that still a Class A Misdemeanor?

THE SYSTEM SUCKS! CRIMINALS GET OFF SO EASY! OUT HERE IF YOU ARE DOING CRIMES, YOU ARE THE LAWS BEST FRIEND! WHAT DOES BEING LOCKED UP MEAN, IT MEANS THAT WHILE YOUR IN JAIL, YOU ARE BEING EDUCATED ON HOW TO BE AN EXPERT ON CRIMES! YOUR NOT BE REHABILITATED, YOUR BEING TRAINED TO A BETTER CRIMINAL! SOME COME OUT GAY AFTER BEING WITH BIG JOHN! IF YOUR INNOCENT AND DOING THE RIGHT THING AND WORKING HARD TO LIVE, YOU ARE THE ENEMY IN THE LAWS EYES, BUT IF YOU ARE DOING UNLAWFUL ACTS, YOU ARE MAKING MONEY FOR THE LAW AND THEY LOVE THAT! AS i SAID BEFORE, THE POLICE,THE JUDGES, THE WHOLE DAM SYSTEM IS CROOKED AS HELL! THE POLICE OVER STEP THEIR AUTHORITY AND NOTHING YOU CAN DO IN THIS TOWN! YOU ARE GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND!
