    I would have sentenced him to two years in the electric chair.

    I am surprised there isn't a civil suit from those veterans who were without their medications. That $1400 in no way compensates them for pain and suffering.

    I had a veteran on a route once who got pain meds through the USPS until they switched to FedEx, because his meds kept disappearing. It's not as simple as calling and a new shipment immediately being sent out. The vets have to go through a lot of red tape to get replacements, not to mention the pain they might go through if they run out before the meds arrive. This driver should have gotten jail time.

    Stealing pharmaceuticals is a federal offense.
    Are the jails that full today that there was no room for this convicted thief?
