  1. What is wrong with these people who think that they are smarter than everyone else? When will they understand that no matter how hard they try, how innovative they THINK they are, they WILL be caught. They do not deserve our sympathy.

  2. Throw his ass in the jinks, foolish people want fast money and would not try to work honestly and dedicated for it.
