Without fail, be it a natural disaster or an act of sheer evil, it seems many rise to the occasion and match, even surpass the evil with acts of goodness.

It is a strength of humanity. Something to be admired. A lot of good lays dormant within us as does the evil. The vast majority respond with goodness.

Remember this truth with it seems there's little to be optimistic about. Somehow, someway we seem to prevail.

Page not found...maybe they didn't want him to get in trouble for stealing the truck and removed it...

What if the truck he stole was the only lifeline that person had? If it were your truck (not you specifically) then I'm sure you wouldn't appreciate it.

Then again he did it for a good cause so there's that. Well he be charged with theft? Probably. Should he? Hard to say seeing as he did it with good intentions.

Actually the owner of the truck just wanted his keys back....

Oops, probably should have clicked the link. My bad.

God bless that man...


He didn't "steal" the truck, as all the headlines state... he commandeered it in an emergency situation to save lives.

Here's another one.

A Marine threw himself over a girl he met two hours prior, then helped her get to safety and even let her use his phone to let her sister and friends know she was safe.

Very cool.

There's probably lots of acts that will never see the light of day. Smaller ones, perhaps. Modest people.

Bless them all. Known or not.

I don't call that stealing, he borrowed it. He put it back when he was done.

And good for him for doing it in the first place. Death toll could have been even worse without him.

I saw this story the other day.
I got a feeling Sheriff Joe Lombardo would kick someone's ass if they tried to press charges on this guy for "stealing" the truck.
The Sheriff strikes me as a guy that wouldn't stand for any bullsh!t.
Kudos to this Marine for taking the initiative and saving lives.
I am sure he would be high on the list if they ever decide to recognize the heroes of that night in the future.

Edit - The story I read the other day was the truck belonged to the concert venue in some way....to move equipment around or something.
That is why the keys were in it and parked behind fencing with other trucks.

In the Army, we never called it theft.

We called it, "Reallocation of pre-existing materials".

Yep. Applied situation ethics. Very ethical and brave.

I'd call that borrowing a truck, under extreme circumstances! He did what was needed to save lives. How any didn't die because he got them to medical care?

Good to see people doing what they can to help one another, again, in a bad situation. Seems to be the norm these days!!

Zero argument from me. It was the headline of both links I found. I didn't want to edit their 'Title'.
