I think the dreaded "Stockholm Syndrome" is going in this burglars favor on this thread at least from the burglars supporters. How about a little sympathy for the victims of this burglar. I don't believe he should be in prison for the rest of his life. I think 50 years would be a fair sentence. Come on, stop enabling this dirtbag as prison will do him good and the crime rate will drop in the area as long as he is incarcerated. Why not just make him the Poster Boy of the year for drug addicts for the Roxborough-Manayunk Patch.

Is there not sympathy for the people who were burglarized? No one is stating that crime is ok. I'm just saying that a lot of people on here are saying harsh things about a person who needs help and not to be judge any more then he already has. The only way to help your community is to help the people that need it. Not to talk down on them and persecute them for making a mistake. You all talk about God but you all are casting the stone. You bitch and complain about how your neighborhood is going to shit but by your words you are part of the problem. On top of it most of you hide your names like the cowards that you are. Let me guess no one in your families have ever committed a crime? No one in your families have been addicted to drugs? No one in your families have sinned either right? Your all full of shit

Nick, you have the exact same writing style and sentiments as Mary G. You both seem to be trying to sell what a great guy the serial burglar is. With all due respect you both seem to display some anger towards the posters who disagree with your philosophy of coddiling criminals. You ended your last post with the words: "Your full of sh&@" which apparently was directed at the community at large. Then in your post before that you ended with: " Love defeats all. God bless." LOL

Well shucks J I may not have the great grammar like you. You must be highly intelligent because you have mentioned the "Stockholm syndrome" around 6 times. Love does defeat all and i do wish everyone a blessed day but it doesn't mean your not full of shit J. I did not direct it to the community. I directed to the members of the community that agree with you J and say nasty things and want to punish someone for the rest of there lives for committing a robbery. You obviously don't understand the cycle that some of these people go through. Maybe if you had someone you love and I mean really love go through it you would have a little more sympathy. I don't wish that on no one. It is horrible. God Bless J.

I'm not commenting on the defendant's arrest. But it seems by the time the Court makes a finale disposition on the case, the case will be ten years older then the Magna Carta.
