Let's connect the dots for those who do not know the true depth of this story...this is the same "girl" who was arrested for possession of stolen property, stole pocketbooks repeatedly from people in local grocery stores (especially the elderly), was in possession of a forged codicil and deed, was arrested on several counts having to do with refusing to surrender her license and plates, and driving without a license and now she is shoplifting from Stop and Shop. She also has numerous counts including identity theft still pending in Vermont. The story for me started with the stolen property when she victimized her neighbors taking thousands of dollars of irreplaceable jewelry as well as forging 7 to 9 checks. She violated and victimized some very wonderful people and she continues to do so without seeming to show any remorse. She drives around in her parents Silver Plymouth with a smirk on her face off to her next illegal activity. I am a Christian and believe in forgiveness and empathy...but when is enough enough? The girl needs help. Perhaps bailing her out and leaving her to her own devices is not the best solution. The drug problem is fueling young people to do desperate things, but it is our responsibility to see when someone is crying out for help and also when they threaten our quality of life by making us feel at risk in our own backyards.

I wonder how many more times I will read about this same person being arrested for committing crimes in this area. Someone needs to do something and quickly. She's obviously a very slow learner.

The corpse is apparently well http://www.coachoutletonlinegg.com preserved: a young woman, lying face down, http://www.coachoutletonlineaol.net shielding her face with her hands at the moment http://www.coachfactoryoutletwy.com of death. Her dress has risen up http://www.coachoutletstorefc.com and is tangled around her waist, her bare http://www.coachoutletaol.org legs exposed beneath.She is currently on display at http://www.coachfactoryoutetmp.com the J Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, as the first http://www.coachoutletns.com exhibit in a show that explores the ways that http://www.coachoutletstoreonlineys.net modern artists - from Francesco Piranesi http://www.coachfactoryonlineest.net to Anthony Gormley - have responded http://www.coachfactoryoutletpst.com to history's most famous volcanic eruption. "Welcome to http://www.coachoutletonlinetc.com Pompeii," she is meant to say. "The city of the dead".
