Wow, you sure do like the sound of your own voice.
And obviously, you don't....however...
I make no apologies for being passionate about something & shooting down short sighted close minded people like yourself who proudly fly the flag of
ignorance, especially on a website where the motto is 'deny ignorance'.
especially when the entire website is an open forum & forums by there very nature encourage discussion. If I wasn't intending to speak in these
forums, why on earth would i even be here???
This kid has night vision goggles? Right.. I wonder where he stole them from.
you are taking one aspect of his personality and saying that he would call upon it in every single situation, which is just plain wrong...
He has a mobile phone? I wonder who's it was.
you obviously haven't read the article from the OP. In the official story, he made the cell phone himself.
He orders pizza? I wonder who's wallet he's taking the money for it from.
he probably also uses a lot of other resources that cost money, that does not in any way prove he steals everything he uses. Neither does his track
record. everything can change in a split second, even people.
Oh but he's allowed all those things, because he's living the good life in the forrest with all the bunnies and squirrels. He's a hero. We should
strive to be more like him.
Yeah, sure... So if the kid lived at home and was sucking off his mothers breast while at night thieving from his neighbours, that's a crime... but
if he lives in the woods, hey, lets call him a hero.. Lets throw him a party.
where do i say any of these things?
you're slinging poo at me like a retarded monkey in reaction to things i didn't even say.
you didn't even understand the sentiment of the posts.
I sympathise with this guy but not for the reasons you think & not with such a erroneous black & white view of the situation.
Your reaction reminds me of the time those american school kids got expelled for writing an opinion piece which sympathised with the guy(s?) that did
the columbine shooting.
Its like you're trying to punish others for understanding the perspective of someone other then themselves. How is that in any way progressive?
Isn't that in fact a very regressive way of thinking that can do nothing to benefit humankind?
Its opinions built on these kinds of foundations, the way you've gone about contributing to this discussion, is a prime example of what is holding
mankind back from being able to 'get along'
your methods of saying abusive things about people because you disagree with them, and dribbling unfounded accusations are pathetic, I agree that
you're behaviour in this conversation has been pathetic & I'm glad you realised it on your own before I replied, kudos to you for realising your own

I'm not a psychologist, but if I tried to play one, I'd say that people who applaud that criminal feel like oppressed losers deep inside. Sure, you
didn't get to pilot a plane or late model Mercedes, and that's because the whole world is out to get you, so now it's time to get even and damn the
consequence. So kudos to the kid. What crap!
Yes your analysis is crap. It is also not at all why I applaud him. I make it perfectly clear why I applaud him & it has little to do with cars or
planes or crime.
Fact is, apart from destroying people's property, the kid also presents a real danger to inflict injury or death during his exploits. I don't see
how you fail to see that.
I don't fail to see that at all. But this guy makes my point for me....

To those who've stated that, as a "Colton enthusiast", I haven't considered the victims, I'll say this:
I've had my house burgled twice, my place of business once, 2 cars stolen (although I got 1 of them back) & I've lost count of the amount of stuff
thats been stolen from me whilst working on location.
[cue breathless indignation] I felt so violated! Er... not. Violated was the time I was attacked by 4 men in a foreign country, beaten senseless,
robbed & left for dead. However, thats not this kid's MO.
Its not that I haven't considered the victims, I just dont care about them. Anyone who, without flying lessons, steals a light aircraft, only to
learn the hard way that flying it is quite easy, its the getting back on the ground that takes practice, & then has the nuts to do it again (!) is a
bona fide champion.
Funny how the 2 people here who admit to have being robbed in the past (myself & this guy) %100 percent support this kid.....
make sense of that one u freakin' haters.....
and to all the experts of how senseless & horrible this kids crimes are.....
look at what your ancestors have done...
look at what your government is doing...
this kids actions don't justify this level of 'outrage'....
but then that's just me isn't it....(and about 2 dozen other posters here...)....
I have a different set of priorities to some people I guess.
