76. So, then
we should be venerating these people who have taken the initiative to redistribute wealth without waiting for a government program?

They sure must be put upon by those outdated strictures against stealing. What a shame thieves have been held in low repute for centuries.

I am sure they are all Les Miserables stealing dry crusty bread and warm curdly milk to feed their starving children. You should open up your home to these unfortunates.

Is it conceivable in your mind at all that for some thieves at least it is a deliberate choice? They steal because they want to steal. Right or wrong or the consequences of their stealing make no difference to them. Why do they deserve a pass?

Do you see a difference in a sneak thief and a robber? For my part, I would prefer not to shoot a burglar or a thief. I think it would be far more satisfying to have him submit to Sharia law. His left hand can be chopped off after Friday prayers. That way everyone will know he bears watching.
