I sure hope when these people are arrested that they are not released on some $500 bond..this is a more dangerous crime then most since you are using others identities to steal social security checks and opening card accts..and whatever else they do. Its sickening that there are so many people that lazy they can not get a job and work like a normal person. I am disabled and can not have disabilty because I have a job. I can't afford to wait 1 year to get it, and dont have anyone to help support me, so I get up each and every day, I go to work in tears, I work 4 to 8 hrs and I go home. I take more pain meds than any human should ingest just so I can make it one more day. And these people are just stealing money..I wish I could get a hold of them before police do, I'd cut their hands off and superglue their hands to their mouth so they could not do it again for awhile.
