    Are my eyes playing tricks on me or do criminals come in all types and sizes. Maybe they were set up or maybe they are being accused wrongfully. Or maybe they just want to lead a life of crime instead of seeking to earn an honest dollar. Where is that girl Amanda? I have not heard her recently.
