Burglary and Stealing is Okay in Her Book

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. County Sheriff's Office was involved in a shooting this weekend. A 25-year old was shot and killed as he rammed the deputy's patrol cars.

The article went on to say this man was arrested 14 times in the last 7 years from crimes such as theft, burglary, possession of stolen property, drug offenses, eluding police, and reckless driving.

A friend of his has a quotation saying the typically things, and not not so typical thing:
1) she said "[he] was not a bad guy"
2) she said "It doesn't seem right that they shot him"
both of which are always said by the friends and family of someone who dies while trying to hurt or kill someone else...

But this is one thing I wouldn't ever want my friends to say about me:
3) "He just liked stealing cars and having fun."

Really, you say it like stealing other peoples' possession is no big deal.

Sure people get loans and pay hundreds of dollars every month to have a car, but stealing it, that ain't no thing. Car owner's shouldn't be so selfish to lock the door of their cars.
