<quoted text>i know what your saying and it's true. People should always ask instead of stealing. I don't know about his background or really any of the circumstances ,but sometimes when people are down and out they may ask for help then some may feel belittled by the people they ask help from, and they just get tired of asking and try other ways such as stealing . It's not right to steal but I can see why sometimes people say I tried to do it the right way but hell with it I'm hungry so I'm going to steal it. Somehow society looks down on people cause they have fallen on hard times and ask for help they look at them and say how dare you to ask me for help and that's just wrong. But so is stealing .
Gonna step out on a limb here,and say that the bitter cold of the element left little room for rationalization about what was right and what was wrong in the cold,desperate,hungry mind of a man,,,when making a final act of desperation.I mean yeah,it's easy to sit on the couch eatin' cheeto's,debating the semantics of right and wrong,,,but till you've actually "been there",you probably don't qualify to take the lead in the argument of stealing verses survival.Just sayin".

Dude's primary motivation was the whippits, not the food. I have a hard time understanding why people are making excuses for an addict.

Why are you such a BITCH? For once close your hateful eyes and put yourself in his place and remember how cold it got that night. You are really a mean person. And before you slam back ugly insults at me I'm going to tell you I don't care. I guarantee you do not know this guy and have no way of knowing his situation. So before you condem and insult, WALK A MILE IN SONEONE ELSE'S SHOES. Remember the saying, if you can't say something good about someone don't say anything at all. I feel very sorry for you you must be a very unhappy person.

No,whippits weren't what led him in the store. As a matter of fact,a burglary charge shouldn't even stand in this case since he was actually trapped inside the store after hours by overzealous employees who were anxious to leave for the evening. And it only stands to reason that this man would need something to calm his nerves after realizing that he was locked inside in the dark for the rest of the night.

It's a good thing stupidity doesn't hurt or you would be in an awful lot of pain.

I've been cold plenty of times and it's never compelled me to burglarize a grocery store or huff whippits for hours. What happened to your little saying....since YOU are the only one hear cursing? YOU are what is wrong with society--making excuses for a criminal.

. He was cold,hungry and homeless. You are always mean and hurtful to others . I didn't use the word as cursing, I used it to describe you.

Lots of people are cold, homeless, and hungry and they don't huff 57 cans of whippits.

If the dude just ate, that would be one thing.....but the drugs push it in the other direction. Your earlier post leads me to believe that you know him. If so, and you are so concerned, why didn't YOU do something to help?

Dude I've went 8 months without electric or water no workers comp., because the ass I worked for didn't pay it & skip town. It was on record one of the coldest winters in Kentucky 1994. It took me 5 months to learn to walk again, with little help at all I've been there and I didn't steal I had family that wouldn't help me when in fact I help put my brother through college and payed his bills for 3 years how soon he forgot! You know how I survived? God.......

Actually,,,God has helped me to survive as well.In no small way.Taught me many trades and gave me the skills to run down and harvest something nutritious from the forest and the streams if necessary,,,and a mind to discern with.I feel very blessed for that.Praise God.And yeah,God made it abundantly clear that stealing is wrong,,,but Jesus,in an effort to subvert punishment altogether for someone who was clearly guilty because he simply took compassion on them,,,said "let he without sin cast the first stone".In very direct effect opening the door and paving the way for each and every one of us to show compassion and either lighten up on a sentence or defer the whole thing if we choose.Something the system failed to do with Angela Baumia,,,and her thirty-five years still trouble me a lot.Anyway,i'ts not as if I'm attempting to say "give him a can of whip cream and bus ticket home",,,but come on,,,look at his mugshot,,,and reflect on his story.He was poor,,,but he was peaceful.Simple as that.Honestly though,what would you recommend be done to this man? Even considering that he victimized no one really,(insurance companies write a small check out of the bucket,some contractors,handymen and repair guys get to work, and everybody goes home winners),,,would you really have him lay five long years in prison??? There's really no right and wrong here I don't guess.Whether you choose to execute or forgive,,,you're within your rights both ways.As for me,,,I see no reason for a fierce and swift justice.Especially when societies across the nation are in the habit of making novelties of such trivial offenders.Seen Otis in MayBerry ain't you???

I don't think he should get in any big trouble I believe in mercy. I hope they will let him work off the debt instead of throw him in jail. What he did was wrong but not murder or hurting kids.
