Harris-Moore became something of a celebrated crook, stealing at least five private air craft and flying them without lessons around the United States, and then to the Caribbean. He also broke into residences and businesses for money, food and to amuse himself. People thought he was "cute" because of his youthful appearance, and his Facebook persona. He has over 50,000 Facebook fans. He sometimes left taunts for law enforcement, including an outline of his bare feet at one scene. Now that he is captured, there are tee shirts being sold, "Free Colton."
Phooey to that! His mother says he has been stealing since age 12 and has had many run ins with the law. It's clear that this is a sociopathic person, with no morals except the moral to please himself, and who has no regard for others. He needs to go straight to jail, and for a long time. I am almost positive, barring a complete spiritual, moral and personality transition from God, that he will reoffend, and reoffend, and reoffend...and eventually, when someone wants to protect what they worked for from this parasite, he will turn violent and hurt someone. And even if he professes a conversion experience, he would serve his jail terms, because he needs to earn the trust of others. I'm not sure I'd believe him right away.
Also, any money from films, books etc. that anyone would be foolish enough to make regarding this individual should go to a victim's fund, not to him or his brain dead mother who is "proud he taught himself to fly." Personally, I would not find his story the least appealing to read or watch.
My tee shirt would read, "Jail Harris-Moore!"
I had my pick of newsie links: Here's ABC. There are lots of others.
