Friday Flash 55 ~ The price of crime

It's Friday, it must be time to write a story in exactly 55 words!

Hi all,

It's been almost a year since I last wrote a 55, but I've been rather busy. Let's see, I finalised my divorce, sold a house, became engaged, bought a new house, married Whitesnake and visited South Australia for our Honeymoon. Phew!

Here's my short story for this week...

Picture source : George Hodan

 
A sharp knife against his throat, for the sake of a few dollars. The robber serves time in prison, provided with food and shelter. The victim requires counselling, while trying to keep his job and a roof over his head. He relives the trauma the remainder of his days. Who is paying for this crime?

If you'd like to contribute to Friday Flash 55, visit the host with the most...G-Man and let him know you've played.

Have a great day/night

Love KB

I like your 55 words but I think that it is hard for them to compete with the true story of your last year! :-)

Here they talk a lot about victim's rights, but their rights definitely take second place to the criminal's. A very thought provoking 55, KB!

You have been busy. Congratulations on all your good things.

Excellent story to re-enter the 55 world with.
