Rob a bank and go to Jail for 10-20 years. Become the CEO of that bank and can steal from anyone you want to. And, get rewarded for it with a huge salary, BONUS, pension, golf club memberships, private jets, and Mansions. Isn't America great?

Boy Temecula sure seems to be the spot to rob banks recently. They must know the Temecula Police have a slow response time.

Kaliforniastan provides a "gun free" environment for every illegal criminal in the state, as well as central America. The horror of cable tv and free medical care and free legal advice awaits this upstanding citizen. With "early release" Jerry Brown at the helm he will probably serve six months. You gotta love this place.
