People who commit this type of crime need to be taught a real lesson. While the damages were in the range of $6,000, this cost MUCH more than that to track down. Additionally, it isn't like he'd have stopped. I don't think I know someone his age who didn't get at least six months probation for petty shoplifting. Then this clown gets 18 months probation for this AND a DUI? What the heck???
Police Detective Michael Hanada said the Beaverton man's technique was one he'd rarely seen before, and hasn't been seen since Zepeda used it in early 2009.
Well, after reading this, I'm pretty sure we'll see more of it. Especially since the precedent for non-deterrence has been set.
