As disgusting as it is I would rather be broken into and robbed by someone who knew what they were doing, with an actual target in mind, then someone, likely more violent and unpredictable, who simple wanted to intrude into my home and steal my stuff.
That sentence runs on but I don't care.
In the grander scheme of things this crime was essentially harmless and very productive. It's more of a nuisance then an actual threat to anyone. In my mind non-violent crimes are certainly not to be welcomed or endorsed but are not cause for any great concern or revulsion.
