Once we as a society loose compassion, we are no longer human.

The article does mention drugs. So maybe someone else can't read. The comment about morals leading to drugs is far from correct. There may be instances where this is true but most commonly not. It is called peer pressure and just trying to fit in most of the time. Those who have had experiences with addiction know what I mean. I agree that that punishment should fit the crime but it will not fix the problem. A person has to want to quit…PERIOD. And although the article does not mention pills(but it does drugs...duhhhh), I would bet that this is how it started if they are past the "pill phase" of addiction. I would also agree that most thefts are due to drugs. It is running ramped in this area. But for those of you that think there are too many bleeding hearts, I bet you never made any mistakes in your life. There has to be a more consistent punishment in the court system around here...but there is always room for compassion. Once we as a society loose compassion,we are no lo

"Pills?"Re-read the article. Nothing for these two but jails, institutions, or death.

Drugs did not make her character or morals. Her lack of morals and intelligence led to her drug habit. There are too many bleeding hearts, like the ones posting here, who feel sorry for "poor kids" like her. The punishment needs to fit the crime; there is nothing else that will curb this type of behavior!

@fanoftigers: I know of many kids this age in the same situation. Prescription pain killers are almost always the start of the deadly addiction. Once they get hooked on these pills, it leads to other drugs and turns them into a completely different person. Something needs to be done to combat these pills which leads to the destruction of so many lives.

I often read stories like this and have the same opinion as RodneyF. However I knew this 19 year old young lady when she was in high school and remember her as a bright and beautiful kid with unlimited potential. Her decision to let drugs become a part of her life has led to this sad situation. It's heartbreaking to see what hard drugs have done to so many in that age group and knowing how hard it is to get out of that spiral. Let's hope that this is the event that turns her life around.

If only we had the California 3 strike policy.

What hasn't she been arrested for this year?
