I feel sorry for the kid. Most CA parents don't raise kids to respect anyone or behave like civilized citizens anymore. We should be grateful the little gangsters didn't burn the building down.

It is all well and good that Newmeyer is suffering the "threat" of having to repay the minority of Californians who pay taxes for the money they shelled out for the door. But how about the cost to the taxpayer that was needed to apprehend and to convict him? How about the cost of providing for the care of this violent criminal in a taxpayer funded State prison for "up to" 18 months?

In their wisdom, writers of the Constitution provided means of guaranteeing malefactors their RIGHT to repay the debt they owe society for their actions. The writers designed that right to be without cost to the taxpayer.

The 13th Amendment to the Constitution has NEVER been repealed. Why are convicted criminals being denied the RIGHTS that are guaranteed them under our Constitution? Are we no longer a nation of laws?
