(KPLR) – Getting tough on smash and grabbers.  

I'm getting really tired of hearing about these smash and grab crimes.  Criminals crash a car through a storefront and steal what they can.

If I'm growing tired, I can only imagine how sick the owners of these businesses feel.

Many of them would prefer the thieves pick a lock and take their items that way.

It's costing business owners and insurance companies bundles just to make repairs.

I wish we had a special smash and grab law that would require anyone caught to be sentenced to a life of honest work.

Skip jail, they should have to work at the business they robbed until their debt is paid off.

I'm JB and that's “The Way It Oughta Be”.
