They are used to this and it would not be punishment for them. All it would do is cost tax payers money in court appointed attorneys with numerous continuances. Now if they would just take away the benefit that they CHOSE to take advantage of... that would be a fitting punishment along with paying for everything above and beyond what they had left as a balance. If you try to defraud a "benefit" and are caught, you should forfeit rights to ANY other government handout. At some point you have to break these leeches from sucking eggs.
I don't believe this is true at all. I doubt the vast majority of them have ever spent a day in jail for all their crimes. My niece's mother is a huge welfare cheat and general petty criminal. Nothing ever happens to her. She forges checks. She writes bad checks. She got WIC for kids she did not have custody of. The list goes on. She's been hauled off by the cops, but nothing ever happens.
In addition, she goes around to all these charities that give away food and hauls away car loads. She literally told one of them she had 10 children and the naive fools at the charity believed her and gave her food for 11 people, her and her 10 children, 7 fictional, and 2 that don't live with her. Every time she gets evicted, there are tons of food left wasted. This has happened numerous times since she apparently has a moral objection to paying rent, so she lies her way into a lease and then stays until they can force her out.
If you don't come from a dysfunctional place, it's hard to imagine the mindset of these welfare leeches. They are not uncommon. They feel entitled to everything that they can beg, borrow, and steal. Whatever they make if they have a job, is THEIR money and shouldn't have to be wasted on things like food or rent or even utility bills.
