There’s Still Honor Among Thieves

NYC wanderer Joey Boots captured footage on the Upper East Side Tuesday of what he describes as a shoplifter being detained by Duane Reade security. But just when you think the young man has no chance of breaking free, his accomplices return to help, at which point he escapes back into the wild, albeit shirtless.

Stealing is definitely wrong, but there’s something endearing about their concern and motivation, which young people seem to be lacking in general nowadays.
