OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- A remnant of the old West remains alive and well -- cattle rustling.

Larry Gray with the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association says rustling has doubled from last year to this year in Oklahoma and Texas.

Gray says the association recovered about $4-million in stolen livestock and equipment in 2004 and is on pace to recover $9-million this year.

Inspector Joe Rector says he's recovered about $1.2-million in cattle stolen from 15 counties in central Oklahoma this year.

Gray says a weak economy has increased thefts and drug users have realized they can make a quick buck off high-priced livestock. He says the best thing ranchers can do to protect themselves is to brand their cattle.

A conviction for cattle rustling can result in up to life in prison.

My experience with theivery.... Corporate theives can steal your life's savings & they get house arrest for 6 months. I'd say there is some inequality in the laws of our land.

"Corporate theives can steal your life's savings & they get house arrest for 6 months. I'd say there is some inequality in the laws of our land."

Hell ceebee, look at the feds accounting of themselves when budget and deficit numbers are made. I remember many times where billions, even approaching a trillion dollars wasn't accounted for until a convenient time politically, and they stated this reality like "so-what." Let me miss state my taxes for say $500 in my favor and see the repercusions. This country has grown to have two sets of laws it seems, the wealthy have theirs and the rest of us are dictated by those fatcats and given plans of socialism and unequal prosecution rights compared to big money. We'd generate a much different set of laws in this country if everyone was on the same plans, definitely including fair and equal induction policies into any future military drafts. Send a fair share of kids in from rich families and see what the votes for war would be from then on!

Yes I agree, justice sucks when you are below the economic line of the rich and affluent, and especially the political ranks...sid

There isn't a lot of difference between stealing a persons livelyhood and their life savings.........

but yes People like Mr. Enron and Martha should be in jail just as long if not longer as someone who um for instance steals a cow.

or an election, your tax dollars, a forign country, the oil of a a forign country, the lives of the men and women protecting your country.... need I go on?

"Send the kids from rich families, to war and see how the feelings about war changes", that's a great idea.

Dubya was a yellow rich kid & without any commitment to national duty. The stories about fulfilling his duties to the Texas National Guard service is so full of holes, he should have been imprisoned for cowardice and perjury.

Our country was founded by honorable men, women & children. Now, there are no honorable men & women in government, our country is being defecated on by the rich & powerful, through the works of political corruption.

<font color="blue"> Sid, i know thei is going to degenerate into "I hate Bush worse than you hate Bush" but, get real, There have always been two justice systems! In fact, the inequity is not as bad now as many years ago. I don't know where you guys get this, "Well, it used to be soooo different before the current administration." It is just selective memory. </font color>
