I remember when I was a teenager and had my bicycle stolen from the parking lot of a store when it was locked up. The thieves had no clue that the only way for me to get the 3 miles to work was on a bicycle. Considering they stole my bicycle and I never saw it again, I started walking to work because I didn't have the cash to buy another one at the time. I hope that someone steps into their life and gets them on the right path for life. 14 years old and already stealing is not the way to start a life that is so precious.
