    17 years! For a purse, thats close to 25 to life in which they give murders so that is in no way logical plus he didn't even do it. I suggest a reform.

    My husband a few friends and I were driving around once when we got pulled over by some campus police officers because we were driving slow playing Pokemon go. When they pulled us over the officer was like I pulled you over cause you looked like a guy who just murdered three people. After he let us go one of our friends looked up the guy and they didn't look anything alike. I just got back and think of how bad that night really could've been sense people are mistaken to be someone else all the time.
