Public Service Message For Future Criminals In Illinois

Before I get into this story, I would like to share a public service message. It's especially for future criminals in Illinois. DON'T DO IT! Seriously, don't break the law. Please stay away from a life of crime. It's not worth it. Your life will be ruined once you get caught. Trust me, you will get busted at some point.


If You're Going To Break The Law Then Make It Worth It

Once again, I highly suggest staying away from becoming a criminal. If you're not going to listen to me, then at least make it worth it. Don't steal something small and cheap. Go big or go home. Think about the "wow" factor. It will earn you more respect in prison. Remember the old saying, "don't do the crime if you ain't got the time."
