Why do people steal? I simply do not understand it. I saw an article today about a a pastor in Florida who ran a drug rehab facility. He was using the patients to systematically steal from Home Depot. The article said he made over three million dollars or three million one hundred sixty-five thousand Euros. Here is a Christian man and yet he set up a retail theft ring. It is unbelievable. There are many stories in my book “Misplaced Trust” about family members who steal from their relatives. Many of the stories involve relatives stealing from other family members. I know greed is always a factor. Many of the stories on Facebook involve family members who convince their parent to sign over their home. Within a short period of time, they either evict the parent or put them in a home that the state will pay all expenses. Then they sell the home and walk away. All the while the parent is left penniless and wondering why. It has to make you wonder why. In so many instances, whenever people see an opportunity they embezzle a company, transfer funds to an account in the Cayman Islands, or just one day steal all the money and then disappear. They leave the employer and all the employees broke. All because they are selfish and greedy. I saw an article where a shop owner shot a group who tried to steal from him. This is just insane. We were all raised to be decent human beings and not take from others. Yet, the number of people feeling the need to steal from others because they have more and the thieves feel they deserve it is escalating. Does it make you wonder why?
