Please explain this to me!

Editor: I need someone to help me understand this. A policeman is convicted of stealing $1,500 worth of gold (the gold was not recovered) and his sentence is a fine of $500 and job suspension.

Where do I apply for that job? Can everyone get by with this? Can I steal my neighbour’s car, worth, say, $21,000, sell it, and get away with paying a fine of $7,000? {{more}}

I’ve wasted 30 years working for an honest pay cheque when I could have retired comfortably in half that time making a living as a petty criminal, stealing, being convicted, paying a fine of 1/3 of the value of what I stole, etc.
