I'm going to guess they'll be at least a few idiots who say "Well, it will cost more to prosecute him...." or "he must have really needed the money". What a stupid arguement. You simply can't allow people to get away with theft like this. When people read about stories like this one, it deters many from attempting something similar. Yes, it's true, people will try illegal things if they think they won't get caught!

Please don"t get me wrong,this is a serious crime, however people are getting desperate and the government is doing nothing to help us as New Yorkers get past this economic hardship. Big deal, we receive an extra $13.00 in our paychecks and while this happened, for persons like me, I now do not have federal taxes taken out, so..........I will have to pay in at the end of the year on my minimum wage salary,and Governor Patterson is RAISING taxes, we are screwed all the way around.

But back when I was young and poor I still would have never stole money. I think that is just a sign of poor core values.

Follow up on what? He has been CHARGED with a larceny crime, not a crime against a person, and has yet to answer to the charges in court. Would you be okay with having your employment and reputation jeopardized for a month, until the opportunity to redeem yourself presented itself? I'm sure his employer is doing what's appropriate for their own liabilities. Innocent until proven guilty.

As an EMT he would be suspended pending the outcome of the case. Grand Larceny is a felony conviction and he would lose his certification, and would need a release from the judge to continue in that career.

Well if my employee was accused of stealing I would suspend him pending the results of his legal process. Not have him riding all over town in my rig so the news media can get pictures of him at work. Seems like common sense to me.

And, within the last month or so, we learned of the slander lawsuits filed against the city (to be bankrolled by the taxpayers) by several police officers accused of a hate crimes but later exonerated... push too hard and you get more than you bargained for in the end.

All to be played out again in this case based on your "common sense" theory. How would you have handled the above differently to avoid the expensive outcome we're not facing?

Who ever stated he was "riding around" anyway?

Yea, blame the economy. First of all HE HAS A JOB, REMEMBER!! How come people who steal get a pass because of the economy. People still did stuff like this when the economy was Good, ya know. Quit using it as an excuse for bad behavior.

Secondly, whether you write a check once a year, or have federal taxes with held, what's the difference?? You're still paying the same amount. I think everyone should have to write a check for their taxes. There'd be a lot more people outraged about their tax rates. The federal withholding program was started to make it easier for congress to raise your taxes.
Third, I've met (harldy) anyone who makes minimum wage who actually PAYS taxes. Most (especially with children) get thousands of $$ more back, than they paid in to begin with. As I've learned, a lot of them 'blow' the money on stupid stuff (drugs, vacations, on-line gambling, cars they can't afford, video game systems, car stereos, etc), then cry about the landlord kicking them out, or RG&E shutting off their power a month later. This REALLY happens. all the time. Seen it for myself with co-workers. I've advised them to save their tax returns for a 'rainy day' or when their car breaks down, or they loose their job. They always blow the money in a few weeks though.

Yeah, I want him tooling around in an ambulance and walking into my house. If he stole to get nice things do you really think he will stop stealing to pay his legal fees?

Suspend him, without pay until this concludes if he is innocent give him his job back.
