  1. I just want to make a point. This guy should rot in jail for it all.
    But its a bit our own falt. We flaunt our houses and assets which
    causes the projects people to get do these things.

    Am I right?

  2. What about the house in Howell? Also, how do you know what the houses looked like?

    And to you answer your question: No, you’re wrong.

  3. #2- your dead wrong.
    just because you own it, and they want it- doesnt give them the right to steal it.

    its OUR faults for them not having to work, or pay there own bills. we are breeding lazy, greedy criminals.

  4. intresting little debate. I fail however to see how # 3 and especially
    #4 write anything that in any way invalidates #2.

    Mr. Conservative says that #2 is dead wrong because if you own it they have no right to steal it. I think #2s point is not that anyone has a right to steal
    you need to be insane to think that. All hes saying is that despite the fact that this guy is a (Moderated) for stealing, to a certain extent it is self inflicted. If you flaunt your stuff, you are setting up a risk for yourself. Thats all.

    #3 says what about the house in Howell.

    To be sure, the point wasnt that theft never occurs to anyone other than ostentatious people. Ofcourse it does. However, (I think) his point is a simple one. At times ostentatious people bring on their own misfortune. Thats all.

    It brings to mind the story of Dina, were obviously Shchem was dead wrong, he deserved death (which he got) for what he did. But Chazal say that she was to a certain extent responsible for it, by mingiling were she shouldnt have.

    Lets try and concentrate on what someone says, rather than shooting off on reflex.

  5. Knowing the people the house and the case of last weeks Heist- there was absolutely no flaunting involved. #2 you may have a general point but this was not the case. If you want to write it in as a open letter go ahead. However don’t attach it to this article.

  6. I fully with #2 & #5. Noone is saying that one who is stolen from is fully at fault, just that he is part of the cycle, and that the flashy society as a whole fosters jealousy and greed which in turn for some people leads to theft of those with more than them.

  7. yes i am back with my name galus. we must wake up and smell the coffee that even in lakewood we are not boss and putting up houses and driving cars that knock out everyones eyes we are calling for trouble

  8. David, why shouldnt i attach it to this article?
    Is this your site?
