I don't even understand HOW some thiefing thug can get away with that much stuff? And I would love to see the day that business owners and Government offices DENY anyone entry unless they remove ALL head wear.

He isnt "stealing" those phones and iPads, hes just getting what he is deserved! I mean come on, do you really expect people to get a job, get up in the morning and go to work, wait for a paycheck and save until he can get one??? What a hassle! I mean come on, and now a days if you really want to get a decent phone or iPad you probably need to have a college degree and those are REALLY hard to get, in fact you cant even go and smash in a door and steal one so again what the heck do we all expect? Its just not FAIR!
