    Wuz that copper thievery worth it ? Well I hope they let you out so you can pick up paper and trash up and down the streets of Dothan. Restitution they call it.Gives you something to think about, while you walking to and fro with a bag and a pick-up stick. Maybe a job would be better than stealing that little bit of copper.Everybody going along the road be pointing you out and saying theres ol'Marcus doing restitution for stealing a little bitty o bit of copper.Now if you had a job they wouldn't be saying that.
