    The broke in and stole and caused damage to seven boats, that people bought with hard earned money. The police arrest them, the judge will get them and give them a slap on the wrist. Next step will be to do it all over again. Best thing to do, is get them both shoveling snow for a few days around seniors homes. Give them appreciation for how hard some people work to get what they have and not have some little puke steal and damage it.
