Theft: Stealing is a Negative Character Trait
Pressure to steal
Youth wants things they can’t afford
Peer pressure from friends
They don’t need it, but moral depravity or degradation drives them to
People usually steal because they don't have a job, they feel it is easier than working, or they see an opportunity to get something for nothing. One advantage of stealing is that the chances of getting caught are slim.
Some like the thrill of stealing and getting away with it. It is an inner urge.
It may take a long time and hard work to be able to afford some expensive item, but a thief can easily steal what he or she wants. Not only that, but for some people stealing can be fun. There is the feeling of a thrill after a successful heist. You don't get that working on some low-level job.
Others justify stealing by saying that the rich people have all the money and there is nothing wrong with taking it from them. It is like being Robin Hood, except that they don't give to the poor.
If you think there are true advantages of stealing, consider the consequences.
