I enjoy how you are getting thumbs down for expressing symapthy for a man who died because people are too stupid and crooked to get a freaking job and have to murder people for a phone. I thumbs up you all the way.

It's crazy because they even make announcements on the subway to say keep them out of sight, and also have signs up, but every day I see people with them out like it is no big deal.
