The casual criminal is everywhere.

This fellow was filmed in my home neighborhood, last night. He is just another in a long line of casual thieves who wander through Baltimore in the wee hours of the morning.

And judging from the flashlight and calm demeanor, this one is practiced and professional.

And this next one, merged from two vantage points, shows a distinguished citizen picking up a UPS package from another neighbor's front stoop. Why go to the mall, when it's all delivered to our/his doorstep?

"The common argument that crime is caused by poverty is a kind of slander on the poor."-- H.L. Mencken.
