Saw this post on the West Boylston Police Facebook page today:
This might be the worst criminal we’ve ever encountered. First of all, he’s robbing people outside the Dollar Tree. Is there any clientele that has less money on them at any given time than the Dollar Tree crowd?
Secondly, he elected to do this at 11 AM in broad daylight, in by far the busiest part of West Boylston. That was smart.
Thirdly, how bout that getaway plan? I’ll just run across the parking lot to the movie theater. No one will ever look for me over there.
Fourthly, he chose an an elderly victim because obviously he’s too cowardly to rob someone who can put up a fight. But he couldn’t even pull that one off. The old lady whooped his ass.
Anyway, this kid is obviously addicted to drugs if you can’t tell by the picture. But that’s no excuse. And yes, Turtleboy does believe that addiction is a disease, but it’s still a disease that human beings choose to have. No one decides that they’re gonna get cancer, but everyone makes a choice to put that needle in their arm the first time. That’s why we couldn’t believe the commentary on the WB Police Facebook page:
Addiction isn’t a choice? I’m sorry, did someone stick a needle in your arm and force you to love heroin?
I’ve seen what addiction can do to people. It’s pretty messed up. But the addicts I’ve encountered steal from each other or take their parents’ ATM card. Robbing a little old lady outside of the Dollar Store ain’t the same thing.
Oh yea, because HE is the victim here. This is insane. The Facebook post is overrun with comments like this. Seriously, are we all just forgetting that a 72 year old woman was attacked by an abled bodied 22 year old man? We just gonna look past that because he was addicted to drugs? OK then.
Then there was this BRILLIANT comment:
Oh yea, the old lady isn’t hurt, so no harm no foul right? We shouldn’t worry about her. We should worry about him. The 22 year old man who made a choice to rob an old woman is the REAL victim here.
This has just gone way too far now. It’s one thing to feel bad for people that are addicted to opiates. But it’s another thing to turn him into the victim for a crime that he perpetrated. I’m sorry, but are we just supposed to give everyone a free pass if they’re addicted to drugs? Is that the new protocol? So if a drug addict robs an old lady it’s not his fault, but if someone else does it they’re a huge dooshnozzle?
The bottom line is that yes, addiction is a disease. But if you do get addicted to drugs then that’s your own fault, and you shouldn’t expect sympathy from people on the Internet who don’t know you when you unsuccessfully try to steal a little old lady’s purse.
