    Any chance some of you are perfect? Because neither of these young men thought, “I want to be an addict and criminal when I grow up.” Yes, they should pay the consequences however your barrage of ignorant comments won’t solve anything.

      Try to excuse it any way you want. They are old enough to know better and made the choice to steal property that other people worked for. They are damn thieves.

    I slept with one of these guys before he became a crack head thief. He had the world’s most patheticly small penis. You can guess, you have a 50% chance at being right.

    Bernie and Hillary said they would give them each a new bicycle – but you know they are thieves and liars (I am referring to the politicans of course).

    I’m sure Seglem’s grandparents are horrified by this kid’s crimes. It would be so frustrating to have a kid from a good family turn out like this.

    You know it is pretty pathetic that every druggie in Iowa has to have a bike to ride or one for the losers that deliver for them. Kids can’t enjoy riding them without you stealing them. Adults like to enjoy them for exercise. You have to start walking!!

      They steal bikes to ride because they have all lost their drivers license due to not paying their fines. We are caught in a trap. We take away their license to punish them, then they have no way to get to work to pay the fines, so they steal bikes for money and transportation, get caught and fined (which the don’t pay) and on and on.

        Increasingly the goal of the criminal justice system isn’t justice but revenue.

    Steal from others who work hard to support your lifestyle and choices, that’s the American way. Obviously the government assistance isn’t quite enough. But I bet you have a cell phone. After jail or prison if your not able to sit for a while because Bubba stole your virginity…I would recommend using public transportation
