Like Jean Val Jean in Le Miserables who went to prison for stealing a loaf of
bread to feed his hungry family, it is sad when someone feels they have to
resort to this type of thing to buy food for the family. (Of course they didn't
EAT the wire, poster #1). And the money probably goes for more than food.I would suggest that instead of incarceration, this man should be
required to get a job and repay the company he stole from. That way he can
support his family, repay his debt, and have a job. He should be monitored,
perhaps with an ankle monitor, as part of his sentence. But incarceration in
cases like this is just wrong.
I had a young woman and her two daughters stop me in a parking lot the other day
asking for money to feed her family.Without judging their intent one way or the
other I gave them the only eleven dollars I had in my wallet.That was 11 dollars
I had planned on using to feed myself at McDonalds.So instead I went home and
ate a bowl of ice cream and made a frozen dinner.Then I was reminded of the fact
that I have been the recipient of this type of help in the past.Please open your
wallets to those who may need help.Please dont turn people away thinking they
are only trying to rip you off.Just help them.
How is this guy any different than an illegal alien that steals into the country
just to make a better life and feed his family? Perhaps the thief should be
given "amnesty" and be able to keep his ill gotten gains. His problem is that he
doesn't have ethnic, political, and business support groups. And why is it wrong
for those that bought the wire? They get cheap wire and the thief is able to
support his family.
bad for this fella's family, especially if he's got little children. It was a
stupid choice on his part to resort to stealing.My heart goes out to
his family and I do hope that they'll be able to get the help they are going to
need while he is being incarcerated.
Guess who gets to feed his family while he's incarcerated?
The company that bought the wire had to know it was stolen. They should be
prosecuted as well.
Feeding his family at A THOUSAND BUCKS A WEEK?!?!?!?Must be a BIG
family.By the way, that's a lousy ROI. Turning $18K into $1K is NOT a
good deal.The DN ought to name this galoot.
I've never tried wire before. It must be pretty tasty to have a whole family
