    Bonnie & Clyde??

    Maybe this couple can meet the same fate as the original. It might prove to be a very good example for deterrence!

    Now where did I park that old Ford! (Never stop to help someone with a flat tire?).

    Back in the day they gunned down Bonnie and Clyde.

    That said, the criteria for being a modern day Bonnie and Clyde seems pretty slack - Bonnie and Clyde did armed hold-ups (though it's said Bonnie never actually brandished or fired a weapon, she was more support and logistics - W.

    Courts are slow.

    It seems courts will never be timely with anything - they were arrested back in Novenber of 2007!
