Good lord, what kind of society have we become when our seniors are not safe in their own homes?

This scum bag was pushing around an 82 year old woman? Sorry but if he doesn't get at least 12-18 months in the county lock up for this, our justice system is a joke.

This girl is nothing but trouble and shes on drugs. The sad part of this is that she has a child and that baby is not safe with her.
