CAUGHT ON TAPE, BAREFOOT AND SHIRTLESS: MORTAL SIN OF A GOOD "OLE" SOUTHERN BOY HERE IN GEORGIA!

I can say this as having lived in Georgia for 58 of my 61 years, but this just about says it all about southern stereotypes and our love of going barefoot and shirtless even whilst committing a crime! Maybe he realized that if the store was open, "no shoes, no shirt, no service!" He must be Pentecostal as he walks on glass without harming himself! This is from Augusta:

What did he steal, some kind of canned drink? All that damage for a can of something to drink?

I notice although no shoes or shirt, he was wearing gloves.

85 miles up the road from Poplar Street (Atlanta of course), much more serious crime story---4 arrested for 2 murders in Little Five Points area of town. Two of those arrested a mere 17 years old, and reportedly a 14 year-old juvenile too. Story recently too of someone arrested up here for the 69th time in 30 years---is it just me, but does crime seem to have worsened in this country since "the family" began to break up in the mid or late 1960s?

Jansenist, having worked in Atlanta for a month now... I won't say what I think of Five Points, whether the large or little versions. Not only would it get me banned from commenting here, I'd also have to go to Confession, and I don't feel like having to do 100 prostrations a day for like 20 years.

Flavius, I understand as I work just a few blocks away from 5 Points, near the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the "mother church" of the Atlanta area. A few years ago, a youth group was in town here for a Steubenville Conference and I tried to show the leader of the group that church---but it was locked in the middle of the day! Guess the pastor worries about things being stolen from the sanctuary Pretty bad when churches are no longer safe havens from crime---I saw another one recently that has a surveillance camera near the altar, I guess again worried that something might be stolen in broad daylight---candlesticks, prayer books, flowers....
