How about a sentence that involves some physical pain. I believe that is the only thing that will make this "person" learn a lesson. Maybe some would-be criminals also.

Face it these people were the dullest tools in the woodshed. Their first mistake was robbing the wife of a police captain. More than likely their second mistake was living beside the Putnam St. bridge that more than likely has cameras pointed in the direction of their apartment which according to google maps is the old Hasty Shopper building on the corner.

Its going to be hard to use the always popular "they fell on hard times, they were good people but it was the drugs" lines of BS that typically spew from the mouths of these people and their apologists in this case.

Then they can cry before the prosecution and judge, say they are going to change......and get everyone's favorite punishment.....****munity control. Then they can do it all again a few months later.

Who these criminals stole from is revolting but its still no different in regards to the law from the other burglaries this last 1-2 years. They ALL need to be punished.

Meant making such a fast arrest, that is great news. I wonder if the thieves were just sitting down to eat the stolen food?

I say a jail cell and bread and water for meals would be justice.

I really think that this is one of the worst crimes I have ever heard of. The Waites would have given them anything they needed. Instead, they stole it all. I have watched many go hungry. It is one of the hardest things to do. Especially when children are involved.

I can't wait to hear the reasons for stealing from a food pantry. Good for the police for asking such a fast arrest. Maybe they might actually get jail time?

The person should be made to see who they stole from, after their debt to society is paid , there should be a volunteer time to the pantry as part of their probation, what do you think Mr. Waite..... Please keep helping those in need, thank you....
