  • An $11 robbery. Sorry they should have been doing community service and saving the taz payers money not costing us thousands. What they did was not worth throughing them in jail that long.

  • 16 wasted years over 11 dollars dont make any sense...

  • Did the 1 sister agree to donate?

    Answer by Sisteract at 8:26 PM on Jan. 7, 2011

  • She's applying for medicare

     Actually it's MEDICAID.    They got such a stiff sentence because it was ARMED robbery.

  • I was thinking the same thing smiley745. When you have murders, rapist, and child molesters walking around after doing a few years.

  • I really don't, not that big of a deal. Weird deals like this happen all the time and you don't hear much about them nationally.

  • I don't know much about the original case, I was only 11 when it happened. But I have a hard time believing they were given double life sentences BY THE JURY just for stealing $11. There had to have been more to the case than that. And one station said almost $200, I don't know where they got that. But anyway, I don't know why people are so upset that they got released because the dialysis was too expensive for the county. She's applying for medicare and they're FREE! So what if the Governor was trying to save $200,000 per year for the state? I guess he could have kept them in jail and just let her die and refused to provide dialysis.

    And I saw on one station that they don't even know if the other sister is a match to donate the kidney anyway. They have to do some tests to see if she is.

  • NAACP thinks it is racial thing that they were sentenced to life in prison.

  • how the hell is that legal? I guess if your going to get out of prison it is a fair trade? Kidney for freedom,
