  1. It's time the authorities toughen up on the penalties and fines for drugs, ammunition and guns because the cost of these things on the street is very expensive and the cost to human life is even more expensive. In this case I would charge him $1500.00 for each round plus 3 years in jail cause if he had the ammunition it means he had money to buy it and the gun he wasn't caught with.

  2. Where there are bullets there is normally a gun for them not too far away.

  3. What a joke, only 3000, Smh, feel sorry for those officers who put their lives at risk
