    With their new TV, they get to see their dirty little faces on TV! And maybe soon on the prison TV too. Once again proving criminals are usually 1) STUPID 2) LAZY and 3) SEE NUMBERS 1 AND 2.

    More proof when you are a woman in Pennsylvania and you are under the influence of drugs and or alcohol and you kill someone with your car you get a slap on the wrist. Where is the equal rights they so badly want?
