Young people stop destroying your life in the process of taking from where you did not keep. Why exchange your life for mean thing? Get yourself engage in something that can fetch you little money to survive. Stop breaking into people’s home and making life unbearable for them. That is why when you are caught nobody have sympathy for your life. Though I am strongly against jungle justice and condemn this act in totality but the injury and pains you caused innocent people have hardened people’s heart to take your life at will. If you happened to get back to life in next planet, I think you will learn from this turbulent experience. I know your soul cannot rest in peace so no need for empty wishes.
