    I love that as a society that we think crackhead or just another useless person. Now, I have never committed a crime nor am I saying that this guys actions were not wrong, but we don't know his story and just goes back to never judge a book by its cover. Maybe he is a guy who has been looking for work, not been able to find anything because of his past and has starving children at home. We don't know, but we are definitely quick to judge.

    Most likely not this guys first dance, no doubt a convicted felon that blames society on him not being able to get an education or CEO position, so he feels it is OK to steal. Just another burden to society.

    Probably another crack head looking for his latest fix. It’s a shame that someone will risk years in prison for a few dollars. I wouldn’t think that he couldn’t have gotten more than about $50
