Don’t give thief free pass

November 4, 2012
The Leader Herald

This letter is in response to the letter about the man in jail having no money.

Mr. VanAlstyne is 60-plus years old and had never been a criminal, but he in fact became one by stealing.

What example do we set to our children/society that we give a pass on this behavior? This lets those who see/hear this story that when you break the law, when you take things that do not belong to you that the law still does apply no matter how old you are.

I have no pity for him. However, I do pray that he realizes that his behavior has hurt more than just those who feel he was treated unfairly.
