Re: 18 Months

If you read the article you posted he didn't get life imprisonment for stealing hedge clippers, it was due to the prior felony convictions of armed robbery, fraud and home burglary.

In my personal opinion there is a middle ground that involves rehabilitation over long prison sentences and life imprisonment is still too long in this case.. however, saying that he got this term for stealing hedge clippers is somewhat disingenuous.
