Have you ever known "anyone" to do anything illegal and not gotten caught?

What was it and why? I knew a guy who was totally broke because his paycheck was lost in the mail and his kids had no food. He wrote a hot check on a closed account in another town to buy them food.

    Yes, me. I became a thief for several months (B&E cars mostly) many years ago to feed my family when I could not find work and welfare was not willing to give me a hand. Also dealt drugs during that timeframe as well. I was never apprehended for doing any of the many crimes that I did during that time (and made enough money doing it to feed my family AND pay all bills every month!!)

    I saw just three months ago ,coming out of a WAL-MART two african american women atempting to walk out with TWO FULL carts of GROCERIES,because the ladies that work in the intrance seem to not pay much attention to what people carry out .

    Sometimes they just say to most " Have a good day" or " Good night" and just nod their head and smile,but THAT particiular night ,these two women had their little kids with them as well!

    I mean ,NOTHING in their carts had been paid for,they had all the nessesities for a weeks worth of grocieries AND toiletries,and the one lady took notice and tried to stop her as a huge pack of PAMPERS diapers fell out of the cart,and the women was like shoving the employee away and they called a bunch of MALE employees to the front and they RAN out the door and the two theifs left EVERYTHING they tried to get away with stealing in the parking lot.

    I mean I can't believe those two women actually thought they would get away with that ,and how the heck would they have loaded all the groceries and other stuff in thier car in time to drive away with out getting caught?!

    One employee did get the licence plate though .

    Hopefully they were tracked down!

    at the same time as i replaced into youthful (beforehand severe college i imagine) i extremely wanted a mood ring, yet they were too severe priced for me to apply my allowance (possibly ten money that's ridiculous because they were poor high quality). It replaced into iciness so i replaced into wearing lengthy sleeves and that i picked it up and appeared at it and then pretended to positioned it decrease back, yet i extremely tucked it in to my sleeve. It replaced into actual a kind of shops with a 'loose journey in a police motor vehicle in case you shoplift' signs and indications so i wager the signal wasn't very efficient. i understand, i'm a insurrection. ingesting underage too, yet that infrequently seems unlawful those days considering extremely a lot anybody does it.

    i know that lots of ppl do illegal things that they do not 'need' to and get away with it and then there are the regular good guys who try their best and do one little necessary wrong and get caught and punished immediately. i have put it down as humor of the fates.

    i know that sounds pitiful but there is no real logical explaination except that for some ppl crime really does pay!!

    When I was in high school, years ago, my friend had stolen a bottle of Electric Youth (that cheap, lame Debbie Gibson perfume) at Kmart. I was so upset by it, telling her no not to do it. We didn't talk for a long time afterwards!

    Yes, I have gotten away with, and continue to get away with doing illegal things. What illegal acts I have commited, I will never tell.

    Of course I've known criminals in my life. Who hasn't? I knew this old dude that would steal diapers and return them for cash claiming he bought the wrong size for his grandchild! What a jerk.

    sometimes people do what they have to do to survive. each of us have that basic instinct. try not to judge your friend too harshly, eventually he will probably be found out, it's likely. let him do what it takes to feed his kids, but you could advise him that he salvation army, red cross, his local church and other local resources may be able to help him. let him use your phone if you can, maybe that would help...oh, and yes i have known someone to do something illegal and not get caught, you know him too i'm sure.....example: O.J.
