While what this man did is very wrong in a million different ways, he suffers from a disease that kills millions all around this world. I can only hope that he is given strict structured counseling in jail to help him learn the tools to fight his disease. If not he will just waste our tax dollars sitting in jail, waiting to do it all again when he gets out. May god help him to remove his shortcomings.

Being a thief is more of a choice than a disease.
