There is no justification to stealing. It’s a black and white issue. Taking something that does not belong to you is flat out wrong. If you’re a religious PERSON, stealing is extra wrong because it is one of the 10 Commandments. But there are certain scenarios where I think I may have to break the law for ethical reasons, knowing very well that my actions may put me in JAIL. If I had a family and we had no means to a meal, I think I may have to walk into a grocery store and steal my family a bag of Funyuns or a glazed ham just so that we can survive. A couple of years ago while visiting an exotic Polynesian beach, I stole a lava rock from a beach. Don’t worry; I’ve already paid for it with 1 year of BAD LUCK.
And my biggest kleptomania quandary was back in 1999 when the first COACHELLA music festival took place. This was back in the day when I wouldn’t pay for anything that required admission: raves, CONCERTS, my high-school prom, nothing. There was no way I would pay for this. Anyways while finding a back trail through the orange groves and a hop of a fence, I found myself backstage where all the musicians’ trailers were parked. And on the door of the first trailer I saw read, “Morrissey!” And yes, his name did have an exclamation mark.

I did what any MOZ FAN would do upon arrival. I knocked on the door. When I stood there for a couple of minutes knocking every 20 seconds or so, I decided to open the door. What do you know? The door was open. I was breathing the same air Morrissey had exhaled. This was the best day of my life. So in remembrance of that moment, I deemed it necessary to steal something from his trailer. Should I go for the water bottle? Nah, too generic. How about the socks? Too nasty. Then I glance over to see a pair of shades. Bingo!
I’ll stop the story there. I don’t want to incriminate myself on one of the most widely regarded news sites for ACTION SPORTS in town. But what would you do? Do you take the glasses from one of your favorite musicians and justify your thieving ways? Or do you do the ethical and moral thing by leaving them there?
That’s the crossroads one lucky girl found herself after boning (allegedly) Ryan Sheckler all night. Actually, it looks like from an outsider’s perspective that she’s more of a crook looking to jack an old friend in Ryan. That sucks. Be careful of who you let into your circle Ryan. You don’t know who you can trust.
Via TMZ. Ryan Sheckler, a world-class skateboarder who has also ventured into reality TV — had nearly $100k worth of jewelry stolen from his Las Vegas hotel room while he was snoozing, and the woman he planned on spending the night with has been arrested.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, on February 27, Ryan was staying at the Palms Hotel and at 3:45 AM he took Stacy Salazar back to his room — a woman he says he’s known for 4 years.
Ryan claims he fell asleep but was awakened by the sound of his door closing. He then noticed Stacy was no longer in his room. A few hours later he noticed his jewelry was missing — a Rolex watch valued at $12,500, a gold/diamond bracelet worth $14,975, a diamond and white gold ring ($63,275) and a diamond necklace of unknown value.
Ryan called the cops, who took a report.
The security camera shows Ryan and Stacy taking the elevator up to the room, and cops observed the Rolex on Ryan’s wrist.
As for Stacy, the security camera shows her leaving Ryan’s room at 5:05 AM. According to the police report, “As she is walking she is fumbling with her purse that she carries over her shoulder.” She got to the elevator, wedged the door open at the last minute, got out, went to Ryan’s room where they spoke at the door for one minute, and then she left.
Cops spoke with Stacy who claimed a childhood friend of Ryan’s was setting her up and that he was the real culprit. Apparently cops didn’t believe her, because she was arrested and booked for grand larceny.
