Pickpocketing is a tough profession. It doesn’t pay much, for one. The legal risks are high. And if you get caught — at a university dorm, for instance — your existence will pretty much be disavowed by everyone you care about, and whatever happens, happens.
On Monday, a pickpocket artist was nabbed on a college campus in a place swarming with students. The youngsters were not very forgiving, as you can see, even as some people in the crowd shouted, “Stop it, stop it.”
Reminds us of this — just a bunch of kids needing an outlet.
