  1. All these judges they are so funny is those that were very hungry to steal they jail, but those that stole the whole money that belong to our country are moving freely there is God ooooooo.

  2. For stealing rice one could say hunger caused it but having added wine, no excuse, na longer throat ! ! The sentence might be considered excessive but who knows the circumstances of the owner of the items stolen? With slow sales faced as a result of economic recession, who knows whether the items stolen represent the profit the shop owner would have had or worse still whether the theft would prevent the shop owner from going back to market to re-stock his shop in these trying times that price of goods are rising by the day and seemingly “little” theft might adversely affect his business, his own means of livelihood. If this sentence will serve as deterrent to another would be thief, I do not think it excessive. No thief’s sensibility should override the right of a hard working owner!

  3. The age bracket of the robber made the Judge to sentence him to 2yrs and not only he added wine,he want to go and sell all those items which makes him a thief,not that he stole them because of hunger.

  4. Is a wicked thing. They are said say judisharing is hoping to common man. But is lies upon us. Judisharing is only commot common man from road and put am for prison.
