Ed. Note: To be honest, the whole thing just makes me sad. Obviously package theft is maddening and frustrating, and maybe I’m reading too much Humans of New York, but after reading the flyer I feel a bit bad for the guy. Obviously, he shouldn’t be stealing. Of course. Let me be crystal clear – stealing is wrong. But I’m wondering, why is he stealing? What got him to this point? Maybe he is a selfish jerk or maybe he’s had a really tough life and is in a bad spot.
Anyway, I’m just depressed about how divided our city has become and it feels like it’s getting worse. I’m left with this nagging sadness. I hope this guy stops stealing. I hope he can be healed. I hope our city can be healed. I’m not terribly optimistic at the moment. I’m going for a walk.

“Cool it, Morpheus just gets me every time I read it. Transcript below…
Have you seen this man?
Seen on camera swiping packages at 4pm on 3/27
He puts them underneath his out of style leather jacket.
Seriously are you an extra in the Matrix?
Appearance may have changed, as he stole a box containing $20(?) of off brand make up
Merlot lip stain may not be your color, brother.
Cool it, Morpheus.”
